Very unfriendly staff but great locations next to the beach, comfortable beds, quite young generation --> therefore noisy, no internet in the room.

Dear guest, we appreciate your opinion. We are happy to know you had a comfortable experience in Estrella de Mar! However, we'd like to remind you staying in a hostel has a lot to share and you have to be tolerant of others since you can benefit of lower prices. We assure you that we always work in order to make our customers’ stay always satisfactory. Our wifi is available in common areas due to mantain a social atmosphere in rooms! We hope you enjoyed your visit, Greetings from Barcelona.


Very good. Great location. Only thing woulf be reception should have a person there all the time, but the longest I had to wait was ten minutes. Very clean and quiet And has air con! Definitely the best hostel for the money.

I have to say that I wouldn't really like to come back to this place. Although the hostel was clean and safe, what I missed was a good atmosphere and help of the staff, who were quite indifferent. Most of the time there is nobody at the reception desk and you have to call them first. In such a big hostel with so many guests I would expect at least one staff member to be available. The receptionist didn't bother explaining basic things after our arrival, e.g. that there is an outside garden.
