Staff were friendly and helpful but the hostel itself was a bit of a dump. Tiny common area, no kitchen, barely any facilities. I'm not saying it was bedbugs but I definitely got some sort of rash/bites from the bed.

A hostel in a good location with friendly, helpful staff but that's about the only thing it's got going for it. It was dirty and cramped. My room was literally only a couple of metres wide with 6 grimy bunk beds crammed in. Free wifi in each room was advertised but it rarely connected and when it did it kept asking for you to 'like' the hostel on Facebook before you could use it. Very disappointing. I would not stay here again.

Hostel was of average quality. Only one shower per floor for a lot of people. Breakfast was free basic but was ok. Location was pretty good right off rambla.

To be honest, walking into what looks like a laundromat wasn't the most appealing. Then I walked around the corner to where the accomadation was. However the man on reception gave me a great map. I was in Rome for 2 days and he planned out 2 days of trips for me, I got to see everything I wanted to see in such a short amount of time

It was nice enough, rooms were tiny though, staff were friendly

Close to main things and easy to get around from but no real vibe and the smallest and most awkwardly designed room I've ever stayed in!

Another great stay at Be Hostel.

Scratchy linen on beds. And horrible laundry facilities, avoid it if you can. Rooms are tiny, and not a lot of room to store bags and suitcases. There's only one female shower per floor, and on some floors the outer door doesn't lock, meaning there's not a lot of privacy.

Great for solo travellers because the common area, terrace, and kitchen are a great way to meet people. There are only 2 bathrooms (one for each gender) on every floor, which was a bit inconvenient. It was alright, but charging almost 30 euro a night for this hostel was not worth it.

The hostel was such a great choice! There was lockers in the rooms to keep your things safe. Plenty of young people to go out with, as well as tours with the hostel. The breakfast was perfect, just so we didn't have to spend anymore money. And the staff was so helpful with any quesions or accommodations we needed. I would definitely suggest this to friends. Good location close to the beach and Las Ramblas!!!

Be Sound is great!! The guy at the reception is very welcoming and my roommates were very nice too. The atmosphere is friendly and warm. I really appreciated the terrace and the free wi-fi connection. Unfortunately I stayed only one night!

Stayed here for a night. Unfortunately got stuck in a room with very loud noisy people who preceeded twice during the early hours of the morning be excessively loud, turning all the main lights on and being disruptive. I'm sure the hostel is fine but this affected our whole experience. On another note, checking in was extremely long and not very organised. Arrived late so didn't experience the facilities. Toilets weren't all that clean.

I really have to thank the Be Sound hostel for such a good stay i've had! The hostel is just 10 minutes walking from the Rambla, in the very center of Barcelona, pretty easy to find. The staff was very nice to me, they always tried to help me. The rooms are basic but with everything you need like air conditioner and a small balcony. The locker system is safe and easy to use. Just an advise: don't spend too much time on the roof top terrace during the day taking sun, i almost got burn! :)

A nice hostel but with only one girls and boys bathroom per floor it got a little over used. The breakfast was decent (cereal and toast). Noise levels were quite. Great rooftop bar with views and €3 mojitos (best I've had in a while, they used real limes).

A really great place to stay! This hostel has everything a traveller is looking for in accommodation. Wifi in the rooms with power points next to every bed, spacious lockers operated by card instead of fiddly locks, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast included too! I asked to move rooms after the first night because of idiots in my room, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Highly recommended!

Dorms were small - no room to open up your backpack. Just bunks and lockers. Shower and toilet were not cleaned enough. Wifi works in the room which always a thumbs up
