Nice hostel to expend your vacances. The main problem is the noise from the cars in the street.

Very disappointed with this hostel, especially as it was more expensive than most places we've stayed while traveling. The shower room and toilette was unclean and clearly needed redecorating. The room we stayed in, private twin room, had no privacy due to the one wall being taken up by huge windows and doors onto a busy communal terrace. Our door was frequently opened by other guests, which made us feel quite unsafe. The place had no air conditioning, and the fan was a joke.

Really good hostel! Reasonably priced, very social and not to far from the metro. We just walked most places which was easy. If you want to have some fun in Barcelona stay here. Happy vibe!

Good for the money. Situation was ok, calm neighborhood and close to the metro and a few minutes walk to Sagrada Familia. The dorm (8 beds - ensuite) was fine, the first night some other guest left a complete mess in the toilet, but it was promptly cleaned by the staff. The water flow of the shower, however, left a lot to be desired. Also, only 2 plugs in the dorm, one of them taken by the much-needed fan... not exactly handy when all 8 people want to charge their phones and cameras

We had a great stay in Graffiti hostel, the staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms and toilets were cleaned daily. Some of it needs a lick of paint but can't fault it it's close to the metro station and attractions. Only issue was there wasn't a lock on our bedroom door for a dorm room however you can use the lockers for free and we had no security issues. Would stay again !

Hostel was really messy and not well ventilated. Stayed in the only "private room" in the hostel which wasn't very private as it faced the outside area where everyone sat and socialized- they could see into our room. I've been backpacking for nearly a year now and this hostel has been the worst.

I liked the staff, the crowd and the better than average kitchen

Graffiti was a really positive experience for the money. The kitchen is super easy to use and much more convenient than many hostels I've stayed in, and the terraces are a really nice place to hang out and meet other people. While it's a small modest place, the layout encourages socializing and is very relaxed. You may have to wait for a shower or the bathroom and hot water isn't always abundant, but it's still a cool place. Also right next to the metro which is really convenient.

The staffs are very helpful and very nice, the rooms are clean. It's quit good for such a price! Just it's a bit far away from the city center.

The hostel is on a very crowded street, that's why it is always noisy and it's hard to sleep. If u wanna sleep well, don't choose this one. They have lockers but u need to have your own locks. It was clean and the kitchen is okay.

I really enjoy my stay at Graffiti hostel, the localisation is good, the staff is super friendly, nice but still Professional. The atmosphere in the common room/kitchen is good and I loved the art wali painting. If they can improve the comfort (the beds are super light... I mean, You Can't move without Wake up the ôter guest who sleep in the same top bed) and increase the nombres of lockers (and size... i Will bé perferct.

This place was terrible! I was in the older section, where there are 4 rooms each with about 8 beds in them - and only one bathroom for all 4 rooms! None of the rooms had locks on the doors so anyone could go in whenever they wanted. People were smoking inside the room when I got there. I woke up in the morning covered in bites from bed bugs, and so did other people in my room. The staff weren't friendly either. Kitchen was ok. All in all, pretty awful though!

The hostel looks nice! However, the matrasses are very old and way too soft.. Nice common kitchen and terrace, but there is only one shower for 3 rooms or so.. Small lockers, but some rooms cannot be closed, thus not very safe feeling. No elevator so if you have heavy baggage, have fun with the stairs ;)

If you wanna low-cost hostel, choose this one. Actually this is the only positive thing i can say. Stuff is unfriendly and not helpful at all. People there weren't friendly, they did't even say hello, when you enter the same room. If you wanna lock your things, bring your own lock. One thing I could not stand, why it is in 8 dorm just two plugs? Seriously, two :D Location is average, near Sagrada Familia and pretty close to metro.
