Had a great time here. We are a couple in our early 30s and were a little worried about being out of place at a youth hostel, but we were pleasantly surprised to find many 30-year-olds around and the atmosphere was great for making new friends. The kitchen is good, the showers are pretty uncomfortable but you just make do. To have a place like this to stay in Barcelona was really special.

Bottom line? A very good hostel to stay in. I think it's strongest points are: Good location and helpful, friendly staff. It is very safe and clean. I found the atmosphere somewhat dull, but It's just my personal taste, comparing to other hostels I've visited in Barcelona. If you are looking for a more quiet hostel, this is the place for you.

This hostel was a good place to sleep in a great location. The staff were friendly and the rooms clean and comfortable. The hostel didn't have any organised activities and this made it harder to meet people initially. The breakfast was pretty average and the push button showers were rather annoying! Overall however I think it's a good, fairly quiet hostel where you can have a good night sleep and are close to all of the major sights/activities in Barcelona.

Very homely hostel, had a great stay. Would be good if they organise some events themselves, like taking people out. However they were able to direct where to find a pub crawl. Will stay again.

Lots of stairs for heavy luggage

The hostel was very safe and extremely clean. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The showers were hot and there were plenty of hooks provided. The room we were in had a balcony with a drying rack, and the room had two ceiling fans. Each person gets two outlets, one of which is in a locker, which they provide the key for at no charge! The only drawback was that the bed i was in (blue room #1) was ridiculously squeaky! It was very loud and squeaked even when I barely moved-- please fix!!

Nice hostel with friendly staff. Wish that there had been a better breakfast variety, but at least there was food. Only two showers in the girls bathroom, so that was a struggle in the morning. Overall nice hostel, though.

The room was nice, average. We didn´t have any problm with noise (but thanks to our neighbours, walls are very thin). The breakfast cwas poor, only cereals and marmalades, so we bought some cheese in the supermarket nearby). I would definetely recommend this hostel - great location, safe and clean hostel.

Really nice place. Great location and great staff. The only minor drawback was too little stuff for included breakfast. When we got to the kitchen half an hour after the breakfast started, there was barely any bread and no coffee at all. We still could get some cereal and tea, so it wasn't THAT bad ;)

A perfect hostel, right in the center and near plaza catalonia, from where a lot buses depart to all the directions. Nights were calm. The biggest advantage is locker, which is divided for 2 parts, one for bag and another for charging your device safely! Breakfast was good and staff was very helpful, thanks Nuria. I spent only 1 night and there was one guy soaring like nobody hasn't slept but I don't think that it is a problem of hostel. Shower and toilet was very good, without queues. Perfect!

We've passed a perfect weekend in this amazing hostel just a few meters from the Cathedral. The location is perfect and the atmosphere is very good, thanks!

Great place, very clean. Lockers had own locks, and OUTLETS INSIDE so you can charge phone securely. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the people I stayed with were nice. There was always something to do since they had boardgames, a TV, and a guitar (which anyone can play) in the common room. There were also shelves next to the beds (which were clean and comfortable). The top bunks (where I slept) weren't too high or too low. Each room also had a small balcony.

Perfect hostel for digital nomads! :) Small and quiet with a very friendly staff, feels more like a shared home than a hostel, best way to connect with other people. Other advantages for digital nomads: wifi is good and the staff really cares about it, low risks for your belongings being stolen (they even have plugs in the lockers). No big parties in the hostel, you can even work there in the evening. And when work is over, you're 5 min walk away from Barcelona's nightlife. What else?
