Very good location but can't say the same about the facilities. Also, most dorms seem to have only 2 power plugs that you have to share with other 10 people. It is a "modern problem".
Definitely not the newest hostel around, but it was comfortable and the location right next to La Rambla could not be beaten. The large common area made it easy to meet other travelers as well.
Not a very Good bed. loudly because of nearly bathroom
- Lockers are not included in the price and are a must. CAREFUL because everybody buys lockers in the next shop and the same key opens any same locker type - Staff at our arrival was not friendly at all, not understanding, worst welcome ever - While we were sleeping, we got ripped off, around 200€. Of course, impossible to tell who did it

The location was ideal, but other things are not that ideal
Just your average hostel. Expect the basic service. Not much atmosphere there, location is very good though. Mattress is too soft, shower box tiny with water running too close to the wall. The terrace in our room was a great addition.
great moment we had!! Good atmosphere, very well located, met lot's of great people from all over the world!! +: nice receptionists! The only thing was the bathroom...not very clean! Otherwise nice stay there!!!

Very nice hostel, really willing and cool staff! The toilets and showers were a drawback given their size: one has to walk backward to sit down and if the main door is not closed, taking a shower might be freezing! Despite this, I would certainly recommend staying there!
My friend stayed here previous year. I as a person liked it a lot. Location is the best close to best tourist destinations. Staff is helpful and so nice. The only and biggest problem is no WIFI in the rooms and worse is only one plug in the room. During my stay there i had no battery to charge my phone also it charges really slow i dont know why. Out of these, the bathrooms on my floor (2nd) was really dirty due to the customers not hostels fault.
it was very noisy at night. They also need to improve the shower room as it was just like a cave!!
Value for money and really near to metro station which is at las ramblas.They do serve breakfast even when we make booking its not stated no breakfast.Staff was good n really warm welcome us and keep our beg eventhough its not the time to check in yet.Only a very small shower room.Others fine for hostel rating.
