HelloBCN was in a great location and most of the staff were pretty friendly. Rooms were small but clean and beds comfortable.

This is really a party hostel. There is a bar (with bartender) next to the kitchen, and it goes crazy and noisy at night. If you would like to grab a beer and meet new energetic people, this will be a good place for you. Or otherwise, you will find it annoying. Staff are very nice. Bed and bathroom are clean. But the drainage around the shared area in the girl bathroom is not good, floor is alway wet.

The best hostel that I've ever visited.

The staff were extremely helpful. The free breakfast was good. HelloBCN is close to all the major attractions. Also, the lockers were a nice way to know my stuff was secure so I could enjoy my day out. The magnetic wristbands for unlocking doors and lockers were an excellent idea and easy to keep track of; I didn't have to worry about losing my key. I would say, however, that many people staying here like to party and come in late, loud, and drunk, so other guests should be aware of this.

I stayed at HelloBCN and had an absolute blast. I was traveling solo and made lots of great people. However, I thought additional effort could be made by the hostel to have a more communal and friendly place for travelers to get to know each other. Most people just kept to themselves - from a solo backpacker point of view. security is very good with wristbands for entry and safes. The staff were great, very helpful and down to earth. Magic Fountain is a must do! Highly recommend.

The staff was exceptional during my stay. I enjoyed being situated near the historic district and walking through the city. I wish the hostel had sponsored more activities, I felt like my experience would have been better if I returned in the summer during their peak season.

We were in the 'new' bedroom with the 'box beds', no curtains on beds as of yet. Only 2 bathrooms (m/f) for 1st floor, might be an issue when hostel is full. Washing machine available, kitchen equiped, staff friendly and helpful. Whole place cleaned every day.

Over all the stay was very pleasant and we met so really cool people. I am sorry to say the wifi did not work efficiently.

I have stayed many hostel in Europe and this is definitely not the best. The room itself is very small and the shower room and toilets are in the same room with sad sink like those you find in poor train. You need to push the button for the hot/cold water and it will last only a few minutes unless you re-push the button again; the worst things for me(probably the best for others) is the loud noise in the night. As stated by the hotel itself, it is a social-activities friendly hostel and you can see ma
