I have rated facilities as poor as the hostel claimed to have a Gym on the listing, then when I arrived it was just an exercise bike and a yoga mat, not even a few dumbbells. The hostel listing also claimed to include airport transfers, but when I asked for further info after booking I was told this referred to the fact the hostel is a short walk from the bus stop, which I had to buy a ticket for when I arrived.

I enjoyed the breakfast n meeting with fellow travellers. To us, the location is really fantastic n there are more than 5 great eateries just outside the hostel, not forgetting too that many convenient stores/ mini mart r around. Hop on hop off bus stop and La Rambla, are a short walk away...thumbs up!

This was so close from being a perfect hostel, free breakfast, clean, great atmosphere, right near supermarkets, not far from the beach, great staff, you wear these watches that are your 'keys' to get in the hostel, your room and your locker, such a great idea and they are waterproof too. only issue is no WiFi in rooms and WiFi was a bit slow sometimes. Highly recommend coming here.

Overall we got what we paid for. No wifi in the rooms and the wifi in the lobby was too spotty to use most of the time but they did have four computers we could use for free. Large lockers with electronic locks that also work as your room key that you could wear as a watch was great. Key also gave you access to the building at all hours. Honestly probably would not stay again and pay a little more for better facilities. Would have liked the patio to be open later!!

When we arrived, our room and bathroom were dirty. The girl in the reception sayed to us that they were going to clean it a little bit later and they do so. About the wifi, sometimes it didn't work at all, and we were at the first floor. The breakfast wasn't so good: bread, cereals and coffee and afterwards you had to clean your staff. Apart from that, the staff was very kind and ready to help you. There's a lot of helpful information and it's 10m walk to the city center.

I absolutely love this hostel. The atmosphere is amazing with a really cool vibe. The breakfast is solid, the location is within walking distance from most places and right near a metro station, and the wristband key cards are super convenient.The staff are excellent (shout out to Shane and Lucas!) Only criticism is get that wifi fixed! Other than that, amazing stay in Barcelona.

Very nice to have air conditioning and large lockers for storage space.

Fine location, they give you a very handy map of the city and walking to most of the major sites would have been doable, but I ended up using a ten trip metro card which they recommended. It was definitely worth it. The rooms have pretty fancy lockers and the free breakfast was good.

Great stay at hello BCN! Locks in all the rooms and wristbands to scan you in to the hostel and your room. Good location, 10 mins to la rambla and close to all the tapas bars. Staff were very helpful with information about the city!

Location is great, breakfast was good. I gave the hostel good for cleanliness because the hostel was clean, just at times female bathroom was a bit grubby + the first room I stayed in was really clean, but the second one stunk, but that might have been the peoples fault not the hostels. I gave good for staff because they were extremely helpful and friendly, but when I booked the second room for 2 days later, the woman was stroppy about me paying 5euros deposit +I could just pay 2 on hostelworld.
