If you are looking for fun, that's the place, but if you wanna take a good shower and have a good night of sleep, then find somewhere else to go.


It was one of the worst hostel I have ever stayed. Last day I found a space in free hostel and for comperision, it was 5 star hotel for me. Just location was better, the rest is trash.


Only bad thing is not having plugs to charge your phone on the bedrooms!


Perfect location on placa Reial next to the ramblas. Atmosphere in the meeting room was very nice, rooms had large personal lockers. Free diner and breakfast included.


Kabul is a great party hostel. That shouldn't mean that the staff has to bark at you each time you ask a question and be absolutely rude and not helpful. The rooms are below average compared to other hostels which are even cheaper in Europe. Theres signs EVERYWHERE telling you to look after your staff cause robbery is so common. They charge you for SHEETS! Never happened to me before. No towel rental, you have to buy it. The bar has only 3 crappy drinks to choose from. I really didn't like it!


The locker is very nice, the bathroom always clean and the parties are awesome!


Excellent party hostel! If you don't want to party though, don't stay there


It was horrible! I gave up staying there in the very first day and wen to a hotel. It is unimagineable that i cannot charge my Phone or any electronic inside the room. Bad services at the front desk, crappy rooms with any space.

They charge you for everything, including the 'extra' sheet, thats is not really extra, consedering they just put a bed lining and a dirty blanket on the bed. The rooms are small and the lockers doenst work good. They charge for the luggage room, u cant drink on the lounge unless u buy the drinks from them (and it closes early, so u have no space to stay). No plug ins and no wifi on the rooms, take some time to loose charging ur phone! I wouldnt come back!!


Good location at a great price


Such an amazing place to mee people, party and enjoy Barcelona. Had the best week of my life here and would definetly reccomend it.


Kitchen staff are nice and bar has great atmosphere but rooms smelt musty and stale. Also no power adapters in rooms due to past thefts but charging at reception is a large inconvenience and the staff don't seem too happy about it either!
