Kabul was great! As a solo traveller I met some life long friends ! The rooftop is amazing and everyone goes up and drinks so you'll always make friends ! Showers are a bit awkward and small but hey it's a hostel 💁🏽 definitely made my Barcelona trip one to remember !

It was a fun stay, and it was exactly what I expected. Kabul is a great hostel if you're looking to meet people and party, and because of that it can be loud at all hours. The rooms were a little hot, but that was in the middle of the summer. Awesome bar with cheap beer.

It was the best hostel!! I come from staying in hotels to this hostel and I don't know why I didn't do it sooner. The location was excellent, the staff friendly, clean with a social atmosphere. Will be saying here the next time I'm back in Barcelona.

There are cheaper better places to stay! The location is excellent but found it quiet unclean and very crammed for space! Found the staff rude. One of the cleaning ladies came into my room and cleaned the wrong bed- she took all my stuff under my pillow! Including my pajamas, towel, earrings, eye mask and receipts I needed for claims. After great difficulty I was able to get back my clothes, towel and earrings but never got back my amazing eye mask which cost me €18 or any of my receipts! :(

Sweet vibe but staff was a little cold, understandable though to deal with drunk people.

Awesome location near the railway station and right in the heart of the touristy area. Awesome rooftop patio and cool bar. Dinners are pretty much pasta everyday but hell it's free and filling as long as you are there at 830 when they start serving. Definitely a party hostel but I disagree with everyone who said it was too loud to sleep. I thought it was perfectly fine. I would definitely suggest it.

Booked a room for 4 people and was given a ro for 6. When we got in there there was used condoms on my assigned bed. We could not bare to be in there any longer it was so disgusting! We had to leave and go somewhere else. Thanks god the guy at the front desk gave us our money back- we only lost the deposit to hostel world.

awesome hostel for people wanting to meet people and party but probably not for the ones looking for a quiet night. swipe pass access to hostel and individual lockers in the room. sturdy bunk beds and air conditioning which came in handy. would stay again!

The hostel was in a great location, right by the train station & 10 min walk from the beach. I didn't sleep well at all but that's just because it's Barcelona & everyone comes back loud & drunk from 1 am - 5 am. The key card was great - worked for the door & individual lockers. Great place to meet people & there was free dinner at 8:30 which was pretty good. Overall, I wouldn't stay again but that's just because I'm not a huge party-er & I had to get up early every morning.

You wanna party? Come to this hostel! But if wanna sleep in peace and enjoy Barcelona, don't go to this hostel. Just too crowded!

Brilliant. Arrived to a buzzing common room. Left our bags while we waited for reception to open and played pool. Old security man kept coming over ask us to be were aware of them and that he was keeping an eye on them. Guy at reception helped us out few days later when we couldn't find our other hostel (drunk) at 9am. Brilliant location, unbelievable value. Didn't get up in time for breakfast

Ridiculous without outlets in the room.

great party hostel

I knew it was going to be a party hostel, but it was even worse than expected. It was pretty dirty and the rooms smelled awful. Think drunk people sweating out booze all night mixed in with super cheap weed. Wasn't fun. We ended up leaving early.

Can't get a better location in Barcelona for the price: close to the beach, la rambles and many restaurants and cafes. Overall the staff was willing to help with anything when they weren't "on a break". Felt very safe at night as two young females traveling together. Lockers were secure, with outlets inside each locker for charging. It was loud at night but to be expected when staying at a hostel with a party reputation..don't come for beauty rest, do come for the pub crawl!
