Most fun hostel I've been to. The happy hour is awesome. The have clubbing every night too

Good hostel but a few negatives - the staff are either useless or miserable (except for the cleaners they are awesome). Witnessed the American absolutely blow up at someone and called them a stupid f*** because he asked for a coffee, closed the rooftop bar early because HE didn't want to use the cups they gave to him. No urgency for anything at reception. No towels for hire. PAIN. And the ticket system they use for all purchases sucks. Only negatives - everything else is great!

Not a party hostel. More like a hostel with some people who want to party. The real bummer is the staff. A bunch of power tripping losers looking to avoid any sort of work and negate a good time. They actively tried to stop drinking games on their own drinking games night to save them effort from the 2 min to clean up spilt beer. The guy at the front desk with a brown spot on his forehead yelled at me and guilt tripped me for paying in cash and asking him to provide change.

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 !

1) The old guy at the reception is a complete a$$hole. He actually take pleasure in making people wait. 2) The rooftop terasse is amazing 3) Atmosphere is good. 4) THE OLD GUY AT RECEPTION IS AN A$$HOLE.

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.

Can't believe this place is called a party hostel, it's far from a party hostel, there money hungry and the staff are rude and arrogant I almost walked out to stay at a different place after the receptionists attitude towards me, it's a good hostel but for the money I would rather go and stay somewhere else

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! :(

Fantastic time as always

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!
