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!

They seemed to do the minimum necessary to keep people from complaining. The wifi almost never worked- which would have been great for us to figure out what to do in the city. The location is very central, but also very loud. This is definitely the party hostel. I don't think I got more than 2 hours of consecutive sleep without someone coming in or out or hearing chanting from the plaça.

A great place if you really want to sociallize. For me I might have come at a wrong time since I was drained from my body to Dublin the few days and nights before, both financially and energetically. So I didn't really go party with them and go to the clubs, which I'm sure totally would've made my experience there different. Nonetheless the location is perfect, stay is cheap for city location plus free breakfast and dinner if you're there in time. Good hostel, great location

Love this hostel. I try to stay here every time I am in Barcelona. The location is amazing and the beds are actually amazing. You'll always find friends to hang out with if you are there alone.

I was very surpise about all the positives things I founded there. Every bed has a automatic locker, the rooms are clean and the bed smells badbabys. They have free entrance for a amazing nightclubs e good pub crawls. The bathroom was surprising clean but the 5th floor doesn't have a shower. They have a good breakfast and a free dinner! The staff is OK. The location is great! 1 minute to las ramblas and 10 minutes to barceloneta beach. I loved stay there. Definitely recommend it.

Great hostel!

If you want to party on this is the right place. Daily activities every night like pub crawls and visits to clubs. Free breakfast and free dinner if you catch it on time which is great. On the other hand the staff is not that friendly, except Antonio on the bar. The beds are very tiny and uncomfortable and the bathrooms were really stinky and kind of dirty. My feedback would be on that part. Overall a nice stay in Bacelona at Kabul backpackers.

Great breakfast and even better location, right on the centre of Barcelona! The atmosphere was nice, but it would be better if the staff were more friendly and helpful.

It was nicely designed place with a lot of opportunity to meet young travelers. Exactly what you expect out of a hostel: a bed, shower, food, and meeting people. Would have liked better regulation on smoking in the rooms, and a better pillow and blanket setup.

22 people in one room was a bit too much. It should have been even cheaper if that many people are staying in one room. But it was awesome that you didnt need to bring a lock for the lockers. Especially since the door was broken so we had to lock up or belongings all the time. The common are was also very cool.

This hostel was absolutely amazing! It's perfect for a younger crowd looking to have a good time in Barcelona. They have a common room with a bar with cheap drinks and free pasta every day. I have no complaints whatsoever about this place! Definitely recommend it if you're looking for an active turn up stay in Barcelona.

Good hostel if you are looking for Party, only. If you are looking for a location where you can sleep and walk Barcelona during the day and sleep during the night without noise definitely do NOT go to this hostel. The walls seems to be maid of Paper and the hostel do not care about the noisy drunk guests at all. Apart from that, the hostel is very good located, but the reception girl is so grumpy.

Got woken up at 6:30am by a member of staff rolling barrels into the storage room next to our room. This went on for a good 15-20mins. Why can't they do this at another time or store it elsewhere to not disturb paying guests? Hostel is okay if you want social partying as theres a pub crawl that leaves at 1:20am. Its pretty far from the beach.
