Very clean. Very quiet. Very comfortable. Location is alright close to one park but the metro is a bit of a walk. The staff was very polite but we're hardly around. The morning we checked out there was no one there and when I called the number they told us to leave our sheets and activated key cards on the desk which is kind of concerning. But I would definitely stay there again.
The woman who worked the reception desk was never around to answer questions or let new guests in. She would go to her house next door. I think a hostel should have desk reception, at least during the day.
The hostel is a little far out from city centre. It's 15-20 mins walk from metro station. The hostel is a very quiet. Reception wasn't 24 hours but they're very caring and tried to accommodate our needs when we asked to stay in a different room as our original room room mate was sick and couldn't stay with the AC on. Rooms could be cleaner. There weren't any proper knives in the kitchen which was very inconvenient.
Clean, quiet. All staff very friendly and helpful, although one opened the privacy curtain on my bed unannounced once which was rude
The factory house was great! Good location; just 5 minutes away from park Güell, 10 min by metro to the old city. Nice, friendly and helpful staff. They also speak English! Not always the case in hostels. The staff gave me suggestions which places were worth seeing since I only had two days. The room was nice. I had the room with the terrace; great view of the city. They were clean and had an air con as well as large drawers where you could securely lock in your belongings such as laptop, etc.
The hostel is located far away from the centre. It's a good 10-15 minute walk from the nearest metro and is located uphill. Getting somewhere or getting back to the hostel takes 45 minutes easily, even more at night if the metro stops running. Otherwise, the hostel was good. Nice staff, clean rooms and bathrooms. Breakfast costs €2,90. It was adequate, but very basic. Air conditioning in room blows on people and often, the room would still be quite warm, even when it's on.
Friendly staff! They have big affection in barcelona!
Facility is ok but a few maintenance issues like loose wiring and a lil dirty in the rooms at times. Over good for resting and some quiet time. Absolutely no social atmosphere at all!!!!!!
