This hostel has a lovely atmosphere and is a great place for meeting new people and exploring really all of Barcelona. The Gothic Quarter location is really great. The only issue that we came across is that the rooms smelled slightly musty from the heat and that you can't drink in the lobby after 12. Otherwise I'd definitely recommend this hostel!


Good value and cheap prices, but kind of dirty. Squeaky wood floors make it hard to sleep when you hear every single footstep in the room.

YOU MUST STAY HERE! The staff is wicked cool and the location is right in the center of a prime area. E. Gothic definitely attracts fun groups of people and each night was a new experience! Do not get drunk and walk alone in this city though. Bad experiences fersure. Stick with a group from the hostel, and you'll want to because they're so cool


Every lock hole is small so you are forced to buy a lock from them. The mattresses are foam so you end up sleeping in a hammock five minutes into laying down. This was the first hostel where no one respected sleeping hours. Roommates would turn on the light at 2 in the morning and chat in the room. I think this hostel is great for 18 year olds who are experiencing their first taste of freedom and think pulling all nighters are exciting. Staff wasn't friendly either. They didn't seem to care.


First of all this is definitely a lively hostel. Pub crawl every night and a bar located in the hostel is a great ice breaker for everyone to meet another. Do not worry to travel alone, as I once did. These hostels are a great way to meet others as mostly likely there are other travelers that feel the same as you do. The drinks at the bar are really cheap and the pub crawls usually come with a couple of free drinks at the bars. Rooms are air conditioned (just ask them to turn it on) and wifi.


This place blew my mind! HUGE area to sleep in, privacy curtain and your locker is less than two feet from your bed. The spot where it's located is amazing with more culture and night life than you can shake a stick at. Five minute walk from a subway stop (you can get anywhere just by walking out the door), plenty of showers, and if you check out and still want to wander around for the day you can store your stuff in additional lockers in the facility.


Hostel was in a great location right by the metro. Really easy and direct walk to loads of places such as La Rambla and the beach. It's location in the Gothic Quarter is ideal. So many beautiful buildings and narrow streets. The hostel itself is good. Enough personal space/privacy in the dorms. Rooms ere cool even though it was extremely hot outside. Showers were powerful and always hot. I would definitely come back.

Was in a 14 bed and enjoyed the large size bunk beds, with space for bags on the top bunk.


Overall was a good hostel. Was walking distance to the beach and nightclubs but was a bit of a hike. Kitchen was small and only had a small stove but usable. Wifi connection was great and beds were comfy. Night staff were so rude and made you show your card when you walked in, was not nice at all, he rudely made us leave the sitting area at night and he overshadowed our stay leaving us with a negative impression of the whole place.


Half of the staff is very helpful including the guy on at night and the girl on most of the days, the others are a bit disinterested. Very easy and helpful when we needed an extra night they organised for us to stay in the same room which was so helpful. The lockers near the beds are great, security seems good, you can leave your bags before and after check out in a locked room. Showers smell a bit but they do the job. Amazing location gothic quarter is beautiful! Overall amazing value for money
