Had a fantastic time here, highly recommend to anyone in a heart beat. In fact my friends recommend me this hostel thats how i came to stay here. Staff where helpful. Breakfast is good, all what you need really. I was traveling solo and it was a great place to meet new people.

Very big. Lots of tour groups. Good wifi on 7th floor, useless elsewhere. Nice upstairs terrace but closed after 10. Bathrooms a bit gross some days, no blanket unless you pay more. Very basic place to sleep... Wouldn't be a first choice to stay here.

The staff were not very friendly and I found them quite rude however the hostel was in a brilliant location. There was a lot of choice for breakfast and the kitchen facilities could be used all day and night.

The hostel was nice, but we had to pay for sheets and towels. The wifi connection was really bad.

Great location. Our room had a strange situation where one of the guests acted in a very confrontational way whenever someone came in late at night. Besides, his odd behavior and the fact that the internet connection was poor on most floors I would give the hostel high marks.

Staff were really unhelpful and actually just giving out incorrect advice. Apparently 'bed linen included' involves a fitted sheet and a pillow case. No access to breakfast or fridge prior to 8am. Lift broke down twice. Internet might as well not exist.

Great location, however any positive aspects of the hostel just about stop there. There was a lack of linen on arrival, unfortunately a bottom sheet does not suffice. A top sheet at least, and possibly a blanket would have been ideal. There are no communal fridges to leave anything in, usually a standard for a hostel. The wifi was poor, only in communal areas, and even then, did not work well at all.

The hostel is right next to passeig de gracia, and super close to las ramblas, placa catalunya and the old town. Good value, spent four nights and no complaints.

Perfect for a stop over to explore Barcelona , would def return, loved the roof terrace, as an over 50 traveller I felt 22 again!

stayed here not too long. The staff seemed a little funny

Amazing location, 2 minutes walk to Casa Batlló and a short distance from Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas. Our bedroom was really good, shower had hot water, only issue was the automatic light at the bathroom that would turn off when we were at the shower. Breakfast was ok too.

This place had no air conditioning. Nothing quite worse than being in Barcelona in July with no AC. Also there were no outlets in the room, along with no wifi access in your rooms (only in common areas). Our room was trashed when we came in, the mattress/pillows you are provided with are disgusting...You must be thinking I am exaggerating and never stayed in a hostel before...wrong. This is my second year backpacking Europe and this was the worst hostel of my life. Seriously save yourself.

This hostel is awesome...except for the staff. They are useless. They were never able to help with questions and gave me false information about the trains/buses. Also, I had to re-key my room card at the front desk 3 different times in 2 days, which is pretty annoying when you are on the 6th floor. But overall, pretty great value for money

It's a fine hostel, they are very clear about what they offer. The bar is nice, too bad the bar on the terrace is closed at night. The main probem was the connection, you only have one hour of internet on their computers and the wifi didn't work most of the time. The atmosphere is not very friendly, it's more like a place to sleep.

Very good hostel! Excellent for meeting people and passig de gracia is a wonderful area! The metros are right outside the hostel if you want to go to la rambla or the beach! The view from the terrace is beautiful and the atmosphere of the hostel is great! Would definitely stay here again :)

As far as location and price go, you can't really go past Equity Point, so for people on a tight budget I would recommend. However, for anyone able to spend a few extra euros, GO SOMEWHERE BETTER! Staff are slow and disinterested, WiFi is a joke in most of the hostel, a friend had a lock tampered with, my bathroom flooded and barely locked, and as there are so many guests (many in big groups) , it's very hard to meet people. Breakfast is also very disappointing.

This hostel was decent. Great location and friendly staff. They offer free tours at 10am and have two common areas (second and seventh floor). There is only WiFi on the seventh floor and its slowww... They also offer free breakfast and have two bars (one on the second and terrace). Overall its not a bad hostel. In my opinion its too big. The beds are also very uncomfortable, after one night my back started aching. In addition the rooms smell like body odor which could be taken care. 7/10

Nice cool air conditioned rooms and fairly clean. Only big negative; WiFi was pretty much unusable at most points in the day, I guess due to lots of users.

It was ok. Paying for a towel and only getting a duvet but no cover was kinda weird as well. But heck, it's very cheap, so you can't complain.
