like most hostel, cleaning levels were not high enough, bathrooms consistently needed a clean, dorm floors sandy, should be vacuumed in the evenings after everyone back from beach. twice found ladies in mens bathroom, mistaking the sign the door for a girl bathrooms including showers need inspecting hourly and remedial cleaning done as necessary. really great hostel well done!!

Every staff member was very helpful and friendly! I can not thank them enough for the map and tips on what to see and where to eat! The facilities were spotless and the beds were very comfortable!

Very clean, relaxed hostel. Breakfast could have been served for longer and a bit more varied.

Perfectly situated hostel, right near la rambla and cathedral and close to metro station. Staff were extremely helpful and nice. Our room was nice with a little balcony overlooking the little alleyways. Brekky was the usual toast, cereal and juice, but everything was yummy. Warning though; there are only stairs to go up so if you are small, like me, and have a heavy bag, it may take awhile to climb up but in the larger scheme of things, it isn't a big deal. Thanks itaca for a nice stay!

We stayed in the apartment separate from the main part of the hostel. The walls are PAPER THIN! We could hear everything the couple was doing next door. Had to ask them to be quiet. One of the showers was ice cold and never got hot. And I like that they kept it clean, but the chemical smell is very very strong. Hard to be in the bathroom for too long. Good location though and staff were nice when we encountered them.

The young lady at the front desk was super friendly! She told us all the places she recommends & places to avoid circling them on the map she provided to us. Throughout our stay both her & another older english guy helped us alot with all the questions we had. Very impressed! We stayed in an apartment which was a short distance away from the hostel reception which was amazing! It was huge with modern lounge room,kitchen,5 large private rooms, shared bathroom. Clean, tidy and comfy.

Excelent place, located at 1 min from the Barcelona Cathedral, in the middle of the Barri Gòtic. Staff is great. It is also quiet at night, if you want to avoid all those party hostel where you won't sleep a minute, this is you place. I recomend this place a lot, enjoy Barcelona.

We stayed here for two nights, and the staff was very helpful and nice to us! The can help you with all the info you will need for the city, buses, tours, etc, etc. Our room was so nice, clean and comfortable, toiletes are vey clean as well. I would only suggest to add a stool to make it more comfortable. Breakfast was simple but nice!

This was a really cool hostel with fun and helpful staff. The location was perfect, off the noisy streets but really close so you could walk there in a few minutes. We stayed closer to La Rambla later and regretted not staying here again. This was a smaller hostel and easier to meet people that some of the other ones we stayed at.

Stayed in the 2 bed private, and it was perfect. Great hostel, nice staff, and it was a great location in the center of the city!

We had the Picasso room on the next street near the hostel. But everything was far more better than I expected. Well location, loads of restaurants nearby, and clean & tidy bathrooms. The staff is very nice, you can feel their passion. I will stay here again.

It was a pretty good hostel. Not the greatest by far. But the location is really what sold me. The staff wasn't the greatest. The rooms were cramped!! Not even enough space to walk around with that many people in the room. You would be advised to cram less people in the rooms, the prices are already high enough for what you offer.

The location is really good because its in the very center. My dorm bed was not comfortable, because the matrace was well used and saggy.

Good hostel with a nice calm atmosphere and a great location - personally I think the gothic area is the most charming place to be and also it is close to everything; the rambla, nightlife, the beach and so on. Good value for money! Only downside is that it is not the best place to meet new people since there is no bar or hang out-room open at night.

Everything's generally fine, but would prefer a bathroom inside the room instead of having common bathroom outside sharing with a few rooms together. Other than that, it's in a great location, nice little hostel if you are staying for only few days in Barcelona.
