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.

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.
