My friend and I stayed for 3 nights. The hostel was exceptionally clean, we had a twin room with private facilities as we are both over 50. Everyone was very friendly and we not made to feel unconfortable as everyone was at least 20 years younger than us!

Hello BCN was great, everything was super clean and the air conditioning in the rooms was great! They have wristbands to access everything which are great because you'll never loose your keys! Breakfast was included, it was simple but good! They are have clubs every night that you can go to for free with your wristband (except sat)!

Everything you want from a hostel, only slightly annoying thing was the lockers in the middle of the room so we couldn't see eachother from across the room and made it seem a bit smaller, otherwise everything was really decent! Nice cheap bar with friendly staff downstairs, good kitchen and nice breakfast included in the price. Thank you!

One of the bet hostels I've ever stayed in. Very safe, the bracelet key is a great solution. Big lockers inside the room, my whole bags fit in them so I could lock all my stuff during the day. Great common area with a bar, amazing atmosphere. Very helpful staff, you can even buy tickets to the tourist attractions in the hostel reception. Close to metro, nothing to complain about. Amazing. :D

Overally we enjoyed our stay. Some staff are so friendly and helpful and some of them so grumpy and unfreindly especially one of the blond girls who I cant remember her name. The locatiob is great and close to the best part of the Barcelona like La Rambla and Gothic Quarter. The safety of the Hostel is Excelent and is so clean.

Great place to meet new people. Lots of space to talk privately and party. Has a bar. Security is great and wifi works well. Good location-very close to metro station and a short metro ride to the train station. Would stay here again definitely.

Good location to start or end the vacation. But apart from Nothing much to expect from here. Rooms, Bed and Toilets and bath is completely old fashioned, small in space and not very clean. Staffs were ok but nothing extraordinary over other hostels. In Dorms Bed was not comfortable and sometime not stable too. So dont move a lot while sleeing :-). Breakfast was good, spacious lonunge area and good connectivity with WIFI was certainly a good factor.

I stayed here with three friends during Primavera Sound festival. Location is excellent: a short walk from Paral-el and Las Ramblas, with plenty of restaurants and bars nearby and access to public transport. The wrist keys are a great idea and very secure. Our room (4 bed female dorm) was quite cramped however we had large lockers and beds were very comfortable. Street facing rooms are noisy at night. Staff were pretty helpful. Shower and bathroom facilities were good, clean and functional.

Location was decent. Not too far from La Rambla or the beach but seemed to be a little bit of a sketchy surrounding area. Large in room lockers were GREAT! Breakfast and coffee were good and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Showers were not ideal and bathrooms were hot and steamy because of showers but there were a few times when we walked in they smelled freshly cleaned. Overall, for the price, it was a great stay!

Great staff, fun lounge, but I like that the bar only serves sangria and beer, as it discourages rowdies.. I love the bracelet key cards, I never had to worry about where my key was! Large lockers in the rooms are great. The staff clean the bathroom at least twice a day, and it shows. Excellent restaurants in the area, and the hostel offers free entry to certain clubs each night. If your room faces the street, be prepared for noise and being earplugs, but the beds are so comfy

One of the very best hostels I have been to. Absolutely worth the money. Close to attractions and safe and loved the lockers that i could open with the same room key. I could see that they really tried to make it convient to the users by making key as a bracelet. Ingenious and so useful! Only thing to improve maybe is the bathroom humidity because there is no fan or window, but clean. The rooms are pretty small and doesnt really hava space to put a luggage but this is a very minor cons. Awesome!

Really great security, solid breakfast but very few other positives. Beds were great and clean but there is an ALARMING lack of power outlets all over the hostel. in my dorm there were just 4 in an 8 bed dorm, all located right at the door far away from most beds. In the common area there were only 2 ports next to seating and tables, the other one was near the vending machines. My devices routinely kept dying because of this.

Good hostel, really close to Paral.Lel metro station and to Las Ramblas. Staff is nice, specially the belgian guy known as Pineapple. Beds and breakfast are ok.
