Some staff not properly trained for their position. Girl checking us in had difficulties in doing so. Also they were not very informative and weren't sure how their services such as the airport shuttle worked. Although it is cheap linen is extra... If your looking for a good quality hostel do not come here.

Had a good time there. Met two very nice people staying at the hotel, and got amazed by how tupida Spanish people can be to not mingle at these sort of places where they could eventually learn English for free and well...!

Of the hostels I have stayed this hostel certainly raised my standards. It was a great location next to metro station and the airport shuttle drop-off/ pick up. No keys as there is a 24 hour reception that will buzz you in. Extremely clean facility, especially the restrooms! It was nice having privacy curtains on the beds and there is also a power cord and locker for each bed. Each room has a balcony too. The only downside was that there isn't a great common room to get to know others.

The sataff is very friendly and helpful, it is a great place to meet people and make friends, rooms clean and excellent location. The bathroom is clean very it doesnt have a window so it smells a little bit bad, be aware that the webpage doesnt said that if you want some sheets and a blankey you have to pay 2€.. In general it was good!!!

Great hostel! The owner was super chill, really liked the curtains on the bed. The lockers underneath the bed were huge and had chargers INSIDE them, so you could charge while you're gone. Good location too, really close to everywhere but still far enough away that it wasn't loud and crazy.

Strong wifi in the room until the last day then it quit working but I think this was unusual. Okay showers with timed push button system. No keys, 24hr reception. Locker drawers under the bed, bring own lock. Computers and an okay kitchen. The hostel itself is nice and clean and well decorated with new furniture. No common area other than reception and kitchen. Kinda tricky to find, no sign.

It takes more than 10mins to get the metro. If you have big luggages, you think it's too far from the public transportation. I'd like to join other people in hostels, but there is no program that can help poeple get along with. I was sorry about that. But there are personal curtains in each beds. You can sleep without interference from light. If you have a lock, you can save money. And there is a market near the hostel. You don't have to buy water at the hostel. Watee from market is cheaper.

Most of the staff are very kind and helpful, especially Luisa (thank you so much)! Though a girl in the morning shift is kinda rude (I won't say the name but you know who you are), who just refuse to store my luggage and force me to buy a lock, I end up spending my last day walking in Barcelona carrying everything with me... other than that, the hostel is in pretty good location and it got all the facility you will ever need in hostel. The curtain on bed is also a very nice touch. Recommendable!
