Private rooms have no closet. The rooms are divided by a pseudo-wall from which you can totally hear guests from the other room. Breakfast is not included. The showers are in the -1 floor, so if you are in the first floor, you need to take the lift. The only toilet in the first floor is ridiculously small: to close the door you are supposed to jump on the toilet. The bed was comfrortable, and the staff is kind. Location is very good if you need to be close to the main BCN train station


The hostel felt very unclean, especially the showers which have rusted away doors and walls. The bathrooms down the hall are small, broken, and don't have soap (so you know some people aren't washing their hands). Also, upon paying, the receptionist didn't give me enough change until I corrected him, so watch out for that.


Nice double bedroom, however the showers did not work properly as all of the water was flowing to the wall instead of down. It is a good place to stay for one night if you need to get a train the following day.


Very small, cozy place with friendly people and staff.


Wan't expecting much from this as it was a last minute booking. Very pleasantly surprised. After a string of not so great hostels this was a welcome break. Secure Locker for every bed, really decent powerful hot shower, good wifi connection and located a 5 minute walk from the main train station. Very convenient if you are only passing through for one night like I was.


I only stayed one night, but the woman working spoke no English and had to get someone else to come down and help me. The bed was just fine, was warm in the room unless windows were open. Bathrooms were just fine. Close to metro!


This place was close to the train station, but nothing else. It was in an alley that was a little sketchy, being a solo female traveler. There were restaurants that were open late that were about a 5 minute walk.


Great Place with fun people and good location to town. We ended up having to stay in Barcelona for one more night and wanted to stay here again but they were full. The staff called other hostels around and found us another nice place to stay not to far away. Beds and lockers are squeeky but really good value for the money.


7 min walk from Sants train station (airport shuttle). Otherwise a bit off the beaten path. Friendly staff, small kitchen corner on ground floor. WiFi doesn't work on the second upper floor. Very calm place, definitely not a party hostel.


Its a good and uncrowded hostel to stay at. The receptionist could speak a word of english so struggled to understand her. The hostelworld website directions translated the street names into english so doesn't match up with the spanish street names. It had us walking around for a long time. The showers were located downstairs which was annoying but they were good showers.
