I found the rooms to be really, really small and the bathrooms were ridiculous. Couldn't lock the door so if you were in the shower, someone could walk right in. However, the lockers with the security cards were awesome and the location was great.


If you are coming to Barcelona in summer stay at this hostel!!


Everyone at the front desk was extremely helpful all the time, whether it be with directions, printing tickets, or getting the best deal for our money on Barcelona attractions. The 6 man room was a bit of a tight squeeze but the lockers were roomy and the air conditioning was amazing! Bathrooms were very clean. The area around the hostel felt safe with lots of food options, a convenient metro stop a block away, and just a 7-8 minute walk from Las Ramblas! I would stay here again!

Best Hostel - very clean and modern facilities. Love the rooftop terrace, made so many new friends there! The biggest selling point was the staff - absolutely loved how friendly and accommodating they were - especially Lucca and Sixtein. I HIGHLY recommend this hostel.

The staff here is beyond friendly and they go out of their way to be welcoming and inviting to guests. Overall this is a great hostel.


disliked this hostel immensely. The air conditioning did not work in the room making it impossible to sleep because it was so hot. The window kept being left open to try and let in a min existen breeze. Water kept pouring in the window from the air conditioning unit on the floor above. Because the air conditioning was broken people kept leaving the door to the dorm room open so anyone could walk in and out while you were sleeping. There is only one shower and one toilet per floor. cant lock door


BEDS ARE SHORT. If you are about 6 feet tall or 180m or more, you will find it difficult to sleep. Please fix this, Be Sound.


A little over priced for what it was


This hostel is great! Nothing to complain about. Rooms and grooms were cleaned all the time and there's a great rooftop for afternoon drinks! It didn't offer breakfast but there's a great kitchen downstairs :)


Great hostel! Air-conditioned as is should! The staff is great! Very helpful! Location is excellent, few minutes Walk to the main street! Security is good, entering every place with own key card(also the locker)! Would come back!


This was the first hostel I've ever stayed at and it was so lovely! The staff was super friendly and the atmosphere was really relaxed. The location is really good. Showers and toilets were also good. The only negative thing was that the kitchen was quite small and a little untidy. Everything else was just positive! + we had great roommates

Loved it! great location right next to a metro and 10 minutes walk from la rambla, amazing wifi, great full kitchen and a lovely rooftop terrace


In general a very nice hostel but a few issues. There was only one female and male shower for a whole floor with 8 bed dorms and the shower was connected to the toilet so it was hard to get changed in privacy. There was only one fridge for the whole hostel. We stayed in he middle of summer and our air conditioning was broken for 9 days. At one stage there were maintenance people coming in at 3.30 in the morning and after hat time they were in there fixing it till 12 at night. Still a good hostel


Off the main drag, good facilities accept for a shower which kept uncontrollably squirting everywhere (kind of a hilarious experience), kitchen was perfect! Pretty good for the solo traveler!


The hostel is basic and doesn't have a particularly vibrant atmosphere, but it was clean, lockers were big and easy to use, and it is quite well located. Traveling with friends and not looking to spend lots of time in the hostel it was really good. If you are traveling solo and looking for a little more of an experience in the hostel maybe go for something else.


nice helpful staff recommend.


Was a great stay. Loved he evenings on the rooftop with most of the other travellers 😃 was really good place to make friends!


Bar had great 8 euro burgers! Short walk to the beach. Showers are just cubicles with nowhere to put your clothes so I had to leave mine outside on the bench and someone stole them!


Great place great staff and great location. Within walking distance of the gothic section an beach.


Very small hostel room (6 bed room), dirty & small bathrooms
