This is a great place to stay if you are traveling alone. There really is a family atmosphere here and it's very easy to meet people to hang out with. The employees are some of the nicest and accommodating that I've met. I don't think people ever locked the door to our room, but we all trusted each other and each person is provided a locker. Family dinner every night is awesome!

Best hostel ever! Gonçalo and his team are so welcoming, you will feel at home from the first minute. With awesome extras like hot jacuzzi and organized dinner every night, this place is really hard to beat!

Couldn't have asked for a better hostel stay in Barcelona. I wanted to stay somewhere sociable, but not super party, that was clean, well located, affordable, etc. The best thing here really is the staff - Marcus, Juan Jose, Gonzalo and Cynthia all make for a great team and create a comforting zone that really enhanced my visit to the city. Stayed for the dinners a few nights, great food and nice getting to meet other travelers. Going out with the staff/travelers also tons of fun. Truly a gem.

Amazing place, really nice, clean, close to the metro station and, by far, the best staff a hostel could ever ask!!! The staff were such amazing persons, really nice, humble, they treated you not as a client but as a friend and gave me a lot of tips, so it made my stay really pleasant! Really, really worth it and would definitely stay there again.

Absolutely loved all of the staff. Cynthia was very informative and tried to help as much as she could. The day shift guys were awsome as well. They did a great job at creating a family atmosphere during dinner. Juan Jose and the other night shift staff were really fun on those nights when we felt like just staying in at the hostel and having a few beers. Location is awesome, lots of cheap stores in the area. First hostel and I'm pretty sure it will be my favorite.

First 100% I have given! and well deserved. Location excellent, everything clean. Staff are amazing, welcoming as soon as you step in the door. Met some amazing friends over the lovely dinners. Just to top it off, the place has a bloody spa! Top work. Also, the supermercat down the street has 2€ bottles of red wine! 'Terra Nostre', well worth a go its a lovely drop. Cheers

Apart from the hostel itself, I very much like the quarter Poble Sec in which it's located: Not touristy, safe, multicultural, cheap and excellent food, cheap drinks... Moreover, it's both close to the city center and to Montjuic: One can walk everywhere in just a few minutes.

Staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming, particularly PJ. I arrived around 9pm and was greeted with a homemade meal to enjoy with the rest of the guests, which is something I was not expecting. The hostel contains a lovely courtyard complete with a jacuzzi, which is worth a special mention. Beds are extremely comfortable, to the point where I couldn't wake up and nearly missed my flight. Overall was a fantastic place, definitely lives up to it's name and ratings.

The one thing that made this hostel was the friendly staff. They are so helpful and really show an interest in not only making your stay amazing, but also in being in your friend and chatting to you about things. Really chilled atmosphere as well. The rooms were clean - I stayed in a 6 person mixed dorm and despite some annoying people who decided to have a brawl in the middle of the night, it was quite good. Also loved the home cooked dinners - I think it really made the hostel feel homey.
