Fairly Good location right in the heart of the gothic quarter, the surrounding streets were a bit dodgy. The whole place smelt like weed and the sheets had blood stains on them. Beds were about to break and the other guests were questionable, one had a knife. Wouldn't really recommend this place as there are much better ones near by

So unfriendly. I was looking for a place to only sleep and I felt uncomfortable doing only that. Ended up switching hostels because it was that bad of an atmosphere.

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).
