This hostel was beyond anything I have experienced before at a hostel. They were warm and welcoming, they were excited to see us and to help us in anyway they could, and they were so friendly! I am so glad that I chose to stay here, and I will recommend it to friends visiting Barcelona soon. Loved the paella and sangria night and loved going to see free live music with the staff!

Garcia hostel close to metro diagonal,but diagonal station is interchange station for many line. So you must exit the L3 exit, if not you are not close to Garcia hostel, and you will be lost in the middle. Sound proof is worse. Garcia hostel emphasised in saving water and electricity, so you will know what do I mean if you choose to stay at Garcia hostel. not a big problem but you will feel very troublesome when you take shower. Free breakfast but with limitation. so weird. Haha

The toilets and showers could have been more tidy some days, no toilet paper etc. The breakfast included in the price was a pleasent surprise though! It was quite sweet for a Scandinavian taste but still great. Really nice staff who offered to help everytime although we didn't always have a common language. Still I got all the help and info I needed. It would have been nice to meet more people in the hostel but it was quiet which was nice as well (I was even alone in the dorm at some point).

The location is excellent, close to Park Guell, near bars-restaurants-shops. A quiet place! The staff, India and Luis, are very friendly.

Nice place to spend a few days of holidays with friends. We come from USA and we wanted to know one of the best cities in the world, and Europe. Shared rooms with balcony and security lockers. Great food in the dining room of the hostel, and good mojitos :)

Staff were nice, location was good. Room was small but quiet. Quilt was too thin, I feel cold in the early morning.

First of all, I decided on this property based on the reviews which were totally unreliable. Although the staff tried their best as being friendly and accommodating the place is awful. Ran down, old n not updated, bathroom disgusting, rooms are old, linens old and stinky, mattress are thin and uncomfortable, tiny n noisy rooms. Location is close to metro but in a creepy back street area.

Thank you for your comment, sorry for the inconveniences during your stay. We are trying to find the most convenience and comfortable way for our guests have a nice stay. All the hostel was remodeled the past march. We constantly make efforts for have all the information the most updated possible, we clean very well the rooms, bathrooms and mattress everyday. The hostel is located in one typical, spanish and safest neighborhood, Small doesn´t mean creepy rather, it´s warm and quiet street.
