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

Great value for money! The hostel has an excellent location, nice dorms and lockers big enough to keep your luggage safe, and the rooftop is the best place to have a drink enjoying the sunset. The staff were really helpful and friendly as well! Definitely would recommend it to anyone.

Bathrooms very dirty, flooded when we arrived and nobody had bothered to attend to it until the next afternoon, mould & hairs everywhere, frequently there was no toilet paper Breakfast was not very good at all and the staff were not very helpful. The rooms were ok, they had a big locker for each person which was good however our key cards kept not working.And worst of all I had big itchy bites after my stay which was confirmed later on to be beg bugs..not pleased at all- avoid!!!!!

the hostel is perfectly situated in the heart of barcelona. You can easily reach all the important area of Barcelona. I liked the atmosphere, the young people who stayed at the hostel, the accommodation, facilities and the activities, offered by the hostel. The stuff is very friendly and helpful. Would absolutely stay there again.

It was in a central location however the 6 bed room was small I struggled to pack my suitcase in it. And it only had one female and male shower and toilet per floor. Wasn't much privacy in the bathrooms or room to get changed. Staff were helpful and had a good knowledge of the area.

Good location. Very loud elevators. Cool atmosphere. Do the pub crawl

Nice hostel, big rooms, huge lockers which were fantastic, could easily fit all my luggage in them. I liked especially the card system for the door/locker. Kitchen was quite small. And there was only 1 bathroom/shower for each gender per floor which I thought wasn't adequate. I didn't like the fact I got charged an extra 7% for using card, I'm already getting charged a high interest rate for withdrawing cash from machine so as a backpackers it felt a bit greedy. Staff super friendly though.

They had lockers in the room that were huge, you could fit your bag there and alot of other stuff also! The location was good, max 5 min from La Rambla. However, it took 20 minutes by foot to the beach and it was exhausting sometimes (but hey, we all need to workout sometimes). The atmosphere is good until 10pm when they close the rooftop, it should be open a longer time. But overall, it was good and I would stay there again!

This is good value for money. It is quite modern and clean. The rooms are fairly spacious with modern beds although it was an effort to get up to the bunk bed. It is high and the railing is very low. There was a good common room. Great bathroom set up.

Great location which is essential when staying in Barcelona! I only stayed for one night but from what I experienced it was great value for money and had good facilities.

Definitely a party hostel. If you want to meet people go here! Really close to las Ramblas, bars and restaurants. Wifi is patchy but the staff is very nice and helpful. Comfy beds as far as hostels go.

This was overall a really great hostel in an awesome location, just a 5 min walk to La Rambla! The bathrooms were a little limited, with only one toilet and one shower for each gender per floor, and the laundry closed at 10pm with the terrace which was a little inconvenient, but I would definitely stay again if I came to Barcelona again! It's an amazing city!

Staff were very accommodating and helpful. The shower situation isn't that great though.

Pros: Aircon, elevator, free toast and cereal for breakfast Cons: No hot water, no toilet paper for two days, one toilet and one shower for a whole level, no additional door to the shower (so when people go to the toilet they can see you shower)

Good location. Dorms have a large locker that fits your whole bag in which is good but rest of out 6 bed dorm was tight. The toilets/bathrooms were unclean. Was noisy. You can hear through the walls. It's a party hostel so if you want to sleep id suggest a different hostel. Kitchen was messy too and had no glasses.
