The hostel is very nice! Clean, good localization and nice staff! I recomend it!


Good hostel overall! A bit out of the city but really close to a metro so good location. Staff were great, very helpful and friendly. Kitchen was also well supplied and had everything you need to make a meal. Our room was nice and spacious, but the curtains/ceiling had mould/damp and it created a weird sweaty smell. Didn't bother us too much though as we only used the room for sleeping and were out all day.


Really good location. Very near the metro station, and the Barcelona FC stadium. The staff are very friendly, helpful, with a lot of information and good tips. The room is very clean, the facility is good for you to cook your own meal. This hostel is really, really good. The only issue is the door don't have key, and the locker key is provided by the staff, you cannot use your own key for the locker.

Thank you so much, for your great review. Opinions like yours give us strength to keep working hard for all our guests. We just want to clarify that all the costumers has their own locker key that they can use whenever they want, to only thing is that the Dorms are always open and no one has the room key


I stay at cool and chic every time I come to Barcelona, which is frequent, and the staff all really great to me. Really nice place, feels like home.


I loved every moment of being at this hostel. It was affordable, the staff were amazing friendly, helpful and fun, they show you around the hostel and explain everything to you to make you feel comfortable in your temporary home. It is clean and you can use the kitchen which I loved. It's easy to get to and not too far from all the tourist places. Definite recommendation to go here and will definitely go back. 5* without a doubt


Very clean, helpful staff, great security. Knowledgable of city and metro routes. highly reccomend for the money

Beer in the vending machine?


I really liked that place. Great hostel quality for a really reasonable price!! Being a small Hostel you can really interact with all the staff and other guests.


I was confused as to why this hostel had such high ratings until I saw a sign stating that if you gave a 100% review they give you some kind of jersey. This completely negates the purpose of the review system. The hostel is okay, nothing special. Your better off finding one that doesn't have to bribe people for good reviews.

Thank you for your comments, but I'm fraid that you didn't understand exactly what we do. We do raffle a jersey every month among all those customers that review us, as well as other hostels give t-shirts, discounts, etc. We do that because most of the our clients can visit many hostels during their journey and sometimes forget to review all of them. We DO NOT give a jersey to the ones that review us with 100%, otherwise all other high ratings (90% and above) will make no sense.
