The hostel is nice but there isn't plugs to charge phone or machines, I was very upset because that is so simple to setup!

Enjoyable stay, definitely! I could not confirm the unfriendliness of the staff as stated by others. They may not be as eager to help, open or charming is the ones in the Sankt Jordi Albert - however, they solve the problems you have and try to help you to find solutions. Missing power plugs in the room? The Hostel states, thats because of a high theft rate. There are dozens over dozens of them in the shared area or you just leave your gadget at the reception. I also had no problem with noise

Probably one of the worst hostels that I've stayed at. There are no power points in the rooms, you have to keep bringing your electronics down to reception for charging. There are no locks on the shower cubicle doors. The shower water pressure was weak. And the aircon in my room didn't work. I decided to leave early.

I arrived to the hostel at 11:00 PM. I was told I had to wait till midnight to check into my room. In the meantime, the receptionist offered me to hang out in the lounge along with a free beer, which I thought was welcoming. The location of the hostel given the price is unbeaten. This is a perfect place to stay if you're solo traveling, just as I was. You will meet new people as long as you're open to do so. Rooms aren't super clean, but the living conditions are reasonable. Great stay!!!

This hostel was a great social and fun hostel. All the outlets and Wi-fi are basically only accessible in the lounge which means that everyone is down there hanging out. This forces you to be social and meet fellow travelers. The staff are also very friendly, and the hostel has a good happy hour deal. There is a weird ticket system to get many amenities like beer, towels, etc.. but it's not too big of a deal. Overall very fun place to meet others and to party.

Really good part hostel, located next to Las Ramblas with its pros and cons. Friendly staff. Limited drink list in the bar (only 3 choices). Would recommend the hostel to friends that want to party but I will inform them that it has a couple of years of wear and tear.

So. Much. Fun. Located in Placa Reial which is a gorgeous square just off La Rambla, wild pub crawl every night, happy hour at midnight before we go clubbing every night, amazing people, super cool bartenders, bumpin music, pool table and foosball table, LOVED THIS PLACE. Only thing is that there are no plug ins to charge phones in the rooms. This hostel was so much fun, and I made amazing memories here.

Very unfriendly staf, which creates a negative atmosphere. I never felt like I wanted to leave a hostel as soon as possible like with this one.Have so many negative things to say about this hostel but it's not worth my time as how the people behind the desk treath you when you ask something. Also if your not into having a normal conversation with someone then this is the perfect place for you!

The hostel is in a great location. They arrange parties every night, but at a cost. No power plugs in rooms as they want u to spend more time in the common area which has a pool table, Foosball and a good bar.

Best Hostel in case of value for money, location, atmosphere. Amazing hostel in amazing city at best location.

The location is the best thing. The atmosphere is really good as well, mainly if looking for a party hostel. And the staff always try to help. The bad thing is: the rooms are to small and to crowd, the internet doesn't work in all hostel.

The closing down of the common area at midnight was a bit inconvenient for guest who were't partying. Also there were no charging points in the dorms or on the levels 2,3,4. Today many travellers brings gadgets like cameras, cell phones etc. and a top notch hostel should have charging points for the convenience of the occupants.

Kabul was my favorite hostel that I stayed at well traveling Europe. The locations is amazing. It's placed in the court yard full of tapas bar with amazing food and drinks.

The reviews about the poor staff were spot on. Wow, were they awful. First let me say everything else was fine (except for the guy screaming over the microphone in the hangout area the whole time... seriously dude, please stop. no one is listening). But the staff -- saying they were "rude" would actually be a compliment to them. You walk up to the counter and they act like you dont exist. They seem to hate to have to give you any help regarding advice on where to go etc. It was sad.

Kabul Backpackers is hands down my favourite hostel. In peak season the atmosphere in the place is electric and filled with like minded travellers all wanting to have a good time together. I met some fantastic people here. The staff are fantastic and really try to make everything as easy as you would like. The only downside to Kabul is the obvious fact that it's a party hostel, if you're looking to have an early night, or take it easy, maybe look at getting a smaller room.

Amazing location, very social and friendly atmosphere. Only downside is that there are no power outlets in the rooms. However, staff are happy to charge behind the desk and there's lots of outlets in the common areas.

Definitely a Party Hostel. Hostel gets you in to a different club each no with no cover, take advantage of that. This hostel is right in the heart of Barcelona so much going on right around you. You will not be bored here. Happy hour each day twice a day 2 beers for 2.50 euro. Book this hostel if you are looking for a fun social atmosphere.
