We had a pleasant stay in Hostel New York! If you are going to have a real Cavation and don´t want to hang around in the hostel often, it´s the right choice. Staff is friendly and helpful. Beds are okay, showers too. For that price its a very good deal, because the hostel is right in the city Centre, so you don´t just sleep for a cheap fare. You save lot´s of money for Subway and Bus too, because most of the things to see in Barcelona are around this hostel or reachable by bike (rental nearby).

The woman who serves breakfast is a bit rude and does not have patient with the guests.


Good location, not too expensive; nothing special to complain except the poor draining in the showers: you have to stand up to your ankles in water. And another thing: the wifi does not work in the rooms and you have to sign in with your fb credentials... The breakfast was actually better than we expected (ham included), but it could have begun earlier than 8.30 (Sundays 9.30)! Btw, don't leave the windows open at night because there are tiny mosquitos that bite nastily.


Our stay at hostel New York was horrible. The staff were extremely disrespectful and rude. The cleaner didn't once clean our room (that was supposed to be done daily) and most of the receptionists were extremely moody. The rooms are very small and dark but the location, however, is very central. If you are looking for value of your money, I do not recommend staying here
