HelloBCN is so homie and perfect. I love the location, the cute bar, and overall everything about this hostel. Recommended for sure!


The front door security is very good. But the left luggage isn't great. They have lockers where you can lock your things in. But the lockers are communal and you are given a communal key to access. Which would be fine, but no staff oversee to make sure you don't tamper with anyone else's things which are already stowed away. Very easy for another guest to walk anyway with something.


Great hostel! The location is great, staff is really helpful and the bar makes it easy to meet people.


A little away from the action but is a quaint place to stay.


Nice place with a great location right next to a central metro station and close to Los Ramblas. Had a great kitchen which was well equipped and had a fridge. Also really close to the supermarket. Wristband keys were cool. Breakfast was very ordinary but who really cares. Also very little atmosphere but it is the low season. Would stay again.


Most of the staff were enthusiastic to help. The rooms were very clean and we loved our overall experience.


Thoughfull staff and very nice space, nothing to complain about.

Fab hostel, great vibe, a kitchen among other facilities and everything you could want from a hostel. 10 minute walk to La Rambla, really enjoyed my stay!




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


Extremely helpful front desk, and very friendly atmosphere throughout


awesome hostel. Really good deal, best I was able to find. the staff and people there are really friendly, so its easy making new friends.


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.


It was amazing :)

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