Given the size of Barcelona it is impossible to be near everything but you could still get a much better location than this. It's a 15-25 minute walk to the cathedral depending on time and walking speed. The tapas tour was a great night when there were enough people for it to run.


Good security system. Bunks were a little small and rooms just felt dirty. Common room nice and big but vending machine wasn't working and kitchen wasn't very accessible


The staff is somewhat undifferent to the guests.


Great bar and lounge area. Nice vibes. Nice hostel.


This hostel far exceeded my expectations and the facility was amazing. It was great having the lockers for free and inside the rooms. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgable and was very willing to answer all my questions. There was very nice areas to sit and hang out with a tv as well which was a great break during the day. Definitely the best hostel I've stayed in this far.

The hostel is very near to the famous street La Rambla. From it you can also walk to the castle Montjuïc. The staffs are very nice and helpful. Wonderful experience.


Very good location!


I loved this hostel, it's just some steps away from Paral-el metro station and the hostel staff will help you with directions to anywhere you need to go. I personally liked the environment, they play nice background songs in the common area. You can have as much breakfast as you want, and the sheets for bed are included in the price. Besides, there are some supermarkets and mini-markets around the area and lots of bars open at night, as well as fast food chains for those who like the nightlife.
