Kitchen is kind of small to cater for the number of lodgers. Breakfast was not out by 8 am as mentioned, more like 8.30ish. Would be great if breakfast was on time, partly if not all, so that people who would like to get an early start for the day could. Thanks. The lounge area was well decorated, good ambience and reflected the colorful and liveliness of Barcelona.

It's too big and it is kind of hard to make friends.

For: the wrist keys are a great idea, and very good that the lockers in the room also work of the same key. Against: the WiFi was very poor, both up in the room and in the lobby.

The hostel was clean and safe. The location is near to airport by taxi but far if by public transport.

One of the best hostel i've ever stayed. However, never book from hostelworld, it charged me around 7 euro as deposit and upon check-in, I've been told that that 7 euro is given to hostelworld, not to the hostel. So I need to pay full amount to the hostel. Book from the hostel's official website instead. Thanks

Staff, such as Wauter, were friendly and helpful. There were coupons available for different things and info on free tours (which were great) at front deck. Super clean place with large common room! Wifi throughout the hostel! Over all it was great.

The showers can be a bit uncomfortable as you lack a dry space in which to change your clothes after your shower.

Given the size of Barcelona it is impossible to be near everything but you could still get a much better location than this. It's a 15-25 minute walk to the cathedral depending on time and walking speed. The tapas tour was a great night when there were enough people for it to run.

Good security system. Bunks were a little small and rooms just felt dirty. Common room nice and big but vending machine wasn't working and kitchen wasn't very accessible

This hostel far exceeded my expectations and the facility was amazing. It was great having the lockers for free and inside the rooms. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgable and was very willing to answer all my questions. There was very nice areas to sit and hang out with a tv as well which was a great break during the day. Definitely the best hostel I've stayed in this far.

The hostel is very near to the famous street La Rambla. From it you can also walk to the castle Montjuïc. The staffs are very nice and helpful. Wonderful experience.

I loved this hostel, it's just some steps away from Paral-el metro station and the hostel staff will help you with directions to anywhere you need to go. I personally liked the environment, they play nice background songs in the common area. You can have as much breakfast as you want, and the sheets for bed are included in the price. Besides, there are some supermarkets and mini-markets around the area and lots of bars open at night, as well as fast food chains for those who like the nightlife.
