The washing facilities were too small and the dryer was broken. It would be good if there was a space on the terrace to hang clothes. Otherwise, overall it was quite a nice place.


Average hostel, large bathrooms but they are located far from the rooms so you have to drag everything across the hostel to shower. Okay location, a couple minutes walk away from the metro. Beds were fine, we slept well. Check in was extremely slow however, and he kept taking other people's inquiries while in the middle of our transaction even though there was another staff sitting there.


We were welcomed by friendly and helpful staff. There is a big kitchen and common room area which is great to hang out in and meet people. It is a short walk from the metro and is easy to get to on night buses if you are out late.


Es un hostel que esta genial y tiene de todo lo que puedas necesitar. Limpieza, comodidad, salas comunes, buen WIFI, unos baños y duchas muy bien cuidados, esta todo muy nuevo, sabanas y desayuno incluido (nutella sí). El Staff encantador, también taquillas gratuitas y sin necesidad de candado, toallas disponibles para alquilar. Hostel top aunque algo caro pero bueno, es BCLN, no se le puede pedir otra cosa. 100% recomendable!


Hostel was amazing.Staff is very nice and they helped us for any problem like location of bars,supermarket and historical places.We were so satisfied and absolutely recommend Hola hostel.


Breakfast was a bit dire - not even a toaster! Room was dirty, as were showers. Some staff were lovely, others were indifferent. Were it a few pounds cheaper, I'd have been okay with it.


Excellent place to stay with all the facilities included :) staff we're excellent, free wifi is always a bonus


very friendly and good facilities


Great stay! Staff were really friendly and helpful. Good kitchen and common area, good location, really good wifi. Nice and clean, organised walking tours, pub crawls etc. Everything you need in a hostel!


I stayed at Hola Hostel for 4 nights (5-9 augoust) and generally I am satisfied from the Property. The bedrooms, kichen and bathrooms are very clean and confortable, ta staff helpful, with a full equiped kichen and in good location as the most of the famous sights are within walking distance. What I didnt like is the very late check in (at 14:00) and the quite expensive price (23 0r 24 euro per night for a dorm in a room with 20 dorms in total).

This hostel was awesome! The breakfast was good, the showers and bathroom were clean, and the dorms were nice and had lockers. The staff were really cool and were extremely helpful.


I was going to give this hostel 95%, but the shower in my dorm went ape on my last night and they wanted to blame me. I was threatened with the police and everything. So I guess I'll have to cancel that next visit I was planning. Pity ...


Nice electric key system - very secure lockers. Breakfast could be improved on. comfy beds, nice that each one has a light near it. Location kinda far from train station and center, but near the sagrada familia.


Great location, it's easy to either walk or get the metro to places. The hostel was very good for the price. Cleanliness was ok. The only downsides was how small the shower was, but this was easy to get over and that there wasn't much of a community atmosphere, people had their own groups, however I did manage to meet a few lovely people there!


Overall the hostel was ok but the amount of mold in the bathrooms was unbelievable. The shower heads, floors, and walls in the shower stalls were covered in mold. It felt quit yucky. It seems the architecture of the building didn't allow enough air to prevent the amount of humidity causing the mold.

Located very close to the Sagrada Familia, it's a good place to stay and (considering prices in Barcelona) also a very cheap choice. Very clean and helpful staff; good facilities. The breakfast consisted was not very broad- but since there were many cafés close to the hostel, that's okay.


Silent hours not enforced. Otherwise, nice location and excellent facilities.


Hostel by itself is well equipped and has a good location. But there are some negatives such as unstable work of wifi and poor amount of food during breakfast (it's ok if you won't found meat or cheese during latest phase of breakfast).


Great hostel for the money, walking distance to old town, for what you pay for this hostel is very good. If back in Barcelona would stay again


Good if you're doing a regular trip to Barcelona. Not great if your chasing a party and a good time.
