Nice hostel really close to la rambla and a major train staition. Two showers between a whole floor of 8 person dorms can get a little busy in the morning but otherwise the facilities are good and clean. I understand they have a bar but the only allowed to drink with dinner rule is pretty pathetic. If the bar had more options and a better tap beer it would be fine. Enjoyable stay though!

12 Bed dorm had 2 more extra beds. No reading lights or charging points near the bed. Too many people and stuff lying everywhere. Wifi signal problems on upper floors. Location is the only plus point.

Huge hostel, but in great location! No free breakfast, security wasn't the greatest either. People could just walk in and then the staff might or might not see who it is coming into the hostel. Still, felt safe and just had to remind myself I paid for a huge hostel price!

It's a good hostel, really close to city center. However, it is a very large hostel and everything is less homey because of it. It is the perfect hostel if you are looking to party but not so much if you are on a romantic vacation.

Staff is friendly except for the cleaning woman who seemed to be quite bossy and in addition had quite a temper. She made fun of my friend who couldn't speak spanish... unfortunately for her I could... apart from that my/our experience was pleasant.

I thought if u pay 18 euros for a 14 ppl dorm, breakfast could have been included.

Was in a 12 man room and was nowhere near enough space for everyone so was claustrophobic. Felt safe, plenty of security but not enough toilets or showers. Wifi was good in the lobby area but very temperamental in the rooms. Such a good location for food and everything, far from beach but could get metro easily

This hostel was very nice and in a great location. The only problem is that there's not wifi in the rooms, but it's in all the common spaces, so you are more able to meet other people hanging out. There also weren't outlets at every bed. The staff were great! They were friendly and we had to wait for a few minutes at the check in desk and they gave us free drink coupons to use at the bar because of the wait.

The hostel was perfect for a short stay for those wishing to save money. It was pleased with the cleanliness, the common areas were quite nice, the hostel was a bit of a walk to the beach, but very 'centric' to all the locations on the city. My only complaints are that the wifi is rather poor and the staff was either very strict or not very enthusiatic; Don't get me wrong they were nice, but not as enthusiastic or fun as other hostel workers I have come across. I would recommend equity point cen

Very nice facilities. Location is pretty good located 10 minute walk from the gothic quarter. Security is very good almost to a fault. You have to keep a piece of paper to show upon arrival every time you enter. My sister even got questioned for hers on her way to the restroom. My only complaint is that "free wifi" is a lie. They have free wifi at the rooftop bar and on the 2nd floor, so if you are staying on any of the other floors you're out of luck unless you want to pay for premium wifi

I would never stay in this hostel again. The staff were rude and the location may be "centric" but Barcelona is that big centric is far from everything. About a 30 minute walk to la Ramba, but that's the closest thing. The lights in the bathroom are censored, but only stay on for 15 seconds, and the sensor doesn't reach the inside of the shower, which results in you having a shower in the dark. The 6 bed dorm only had 1 power point which isn't ideal for someone backpacking.

Cool hostel if you want to be one in a million guests. This is the largest hostel I have ever stayed in. A huge variety of people which is good in some ways and bad in others in terms that not all guests were backpackers looking to socialize and meet new people and explore the city. Very weird atmosphere. Over all the hostel was clean, the beds were comfortable, the bathroom was also clean, and cleaning service was always around. If you want wifi you must pay for the premium.

Great location, staff was really nice and the breakfast is really good. Toilets could be a little cleaner, but nothing that really bothered me.

This hostel is very big and very corporate. They are only interested in making money. Would not suggest doing a dorm with more than 12 beds. Too many people in one room and only a few outlets. Beds are SUPER uncomfortable and the wifi basically doesn't work anywhere but the extremely loud and crowded kitchen. Try somewhere else!

Great location. Small bathrooms.

Nice hostel in its size , style, and central location. However, the nearby restaurants are very expensive. For the budget traveler I would suggest and neighboring zone. Also, they treat you a bit like children..., no outside alcohol, they close the terrace at 9 and you have to buy these annoying little tickets to get drinks. Overall... I would suggest elsewhere to a friend.

Would definitely recommend. There was a guy on the terrace bar who wasn't very friendly, but otherwise the staff and guests were warm and welcoming!

This hostel just wasn't for me, location is good, facilitates are ok, service was fine, but they charge money for WiFi in the rooms, no plug sockets next to my bed, they charge for a breakfast that is the same standard as a free breakfast, too crowded. I wouldn't book here again, I prefer the smaller more laid back hostels.

All in all a good hostel.Stand out member of staff being the rocker receptionist.
