I have been to many hostels in different countries but I have never seen such a dirty one. Our food and beer was stolen from the fridge. The ideal place for your nightmares to come true

Dear Odett, we are very surprised about your comment, we take it in consideration to improve our services.Our cleaning staff cleans every day. We can assure you that our receptionists always do all their best to make your stay more comfortable (like changing your room if your roommates are disturbing you). In the shared areas we have security cameras and we trust the good use made by customers of such areas,we provide labels to identify products in the fridge. Best regards from Barcelona


Good hostel but nothing exceptional to report. Did the job nicely for when you just need a room to sleep.

Hi ! We are very happy about your comment thank you very much! We hope you will come back soon!! Best wishes from Barcelona!!


I stayed at Ideal Youth Hostel for 4 nights and was very pleased with the hostel. It is in a great location, a side street right in the middle of Las Ramblas. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was as clean as you expect a hostel to be and there was dinner available as well as breakfast. There were individual lockers in the room I stayed in though not really enough power outlets. I would stay here again.

My friend and me really enjoyed the stay at the Ideal Youth Hostel. The staff is really friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and have perfect size. We really enjoyed the daily/ nightly "Entertainment" program and it was really helpful to get all people from the hostel together and have a good time there. Excellent stay ;-)
