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.

We stayed here for 5 nights for Sonar festival and was very impressed. The hostel is in a really good location of everything! The staff were helpful, the atmosphere was brilliant and the mojito parties on the roof terrace were perfect watching the sunset. People's comments about the shortage of toilets are irrelevant as there is adequate amounts, not to mention the superb aircon. Would definitely recommended!

Good location close to la ramblas, the port and metro line. Had to move rooms which was annoying and the room I moved to was next to reception and very noisy during the night. Not much of an atmosphere most of the time. Air con only worked sometimes. Had to check in to the hostel on Facebook every time you wanted to use the wifi which cut out often. Didn't really enjoy staying here.

Worst place I have ever stayed, when we told the staff member in the morning about how bad our experience was he didn't say anything, The whole floor we were on was hot, as the air con didn't work. In the middle of the night a staff member let himself into our room to see if it was working which I thought was strange. Not to mention how bad and dirty the bathrooms are! Avoid this place, book somewhere cheaper and cleaner.

This is very much a last resort kind of hostel. Had one bathroom for the whole floor. Our room was so tiny we had to walk single file beside the beds. And there was no ventilation of air conditioning. Pretty unpleasant place to stay for more than a night.


37%

Not enough bathrooms for the number of people there. Dirty bedspreads, no top sheets offered. Slummy neighborhood. Prostitutes in streets. No air conditioning.

Be Sound is a great place to stay if you want to stay in the centre of Barcelona on the cheap and meet people from all over. I've stayed there a few times and I would recommend it to anyone.

Good staff, high security, good location and clean rooms.

The breakfast was inconsistent - the only person with access to the breakfast pantry sometimes wasn't around so you would be missing milk, juice, bread, etc. It can be frustrating to have "free breakfast" but not enough components to make it a meal. The kitchen was too small

Really hot at night, air con not working, and only one toilet and shower per floor.

Great location, friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms and beds. Only issue was the showers- not very private unless you go down to the first level one. And there was only 1 female and 1 male shower and toilet per floor. But overall good value.
