Basic hostel but everything you need. Excellent location, 15 minutes walk to the beach. Cleaned daily, though someone cut their hair in the showers the first day I got here and there was still hair lying around the day I left, 6 days later. Atmosphere was average, there isn't really a common area, and with the internet only available downstairs, everyone sits in reception or in the dining hall. Not great for meeting people, as a solo traveler. Good security, excellent location, good kitchen.
Fantastic location to see the rest of Barcelona. Large individual lockers in each room, which was good to store our bags.

It was extremely hot and humid in our time in Barcelona in July and this place only had 1 small fan for four people that you had to literally be in front of to feel the air. We did not really sleep comfortably because of this. Though the guy did find us a second better fan the second night. The facilities were clean and pretty modern, but there were no activities or it didn't seem all that friendly of a place. Great location and could be a great hostel with improvements
You indeed get what you pay for... Good location, but that doesn't make up for everything. Unclean showers and rooms, more than half of the time no toilet paper on my floor. Maybe I was unlucky with unrespectful, young and noisy fellow travelers. The staff was not unfriendly, just careless about their job and what was going on in the hostel. Stayed in different other hostels in Barcelona where the value for money is way better. Would not recommend this place.
If I had not been to other hostels in Barcelona I would think it's ok, but after having stayed at so many I can say that this one is poor. No atmosphere whatsoever and not for socialising. Location good. You'll find better places with the same price
There was a lot of noise coming from the street in the rooms, which was surprisingly loud as the hostel itself seemed quite quiet, the room was always filled with noise coming from the open window. This was not a major problem but did sometimes disrupt sleep. However it is a small price to pay for the fantastic central location of this hostel and the rooms were very spacious. I would definitely go back.
