The family werelovely and courteous. The room was as expected and as i was told. The room was clean and warm and comfortable


Our stay at the Khan house and later the Ideal hostel was excellent. For couples the jacuzzi rooms at the Khan house is like heaven. The water was too hot, and the jets so powerful it was great. You could fit 5 people in that jacuzzi. For the money I don't think there is a better place in all of Barcelona. The Ideal hostel was also very nice, the terrace was huge and sunny, the kitchen was clean and the internet worked great. I would stay in both places again in a second.


This is the only hostel that asks you to pay the entire stay upfront. I didn't stay there, they canceled my reservation before I could solve some troubles I was having with my card DONT STAY ON THIS HOSTEL. I totally recommend 360 hostel Barcelona, they have free pasta night, free paella night, free pub crawl... best hostel I've ever stayed.


Pros. Staff are helpful; rooms are new and pretty nice; washing machine in the kitchen; jacuzzi room is worth it because it has a bigger window and is twice as big as basic rooms Cons. Kitchen is awful/hard to find a spoon/bowl/outside so very cold in the winter; no furniture in the rooms so no place to put stuff or hang washed clothes; after we did laundry we found out it costs 3 Euros (cheap, but please just say it up front) But they did their best to make our stay enjoyable. Thanks!

Khan Home was a pleasant and quiet place to stay, the lady there was very nice and gave us a free upgrade to the room with a Jacuzzi because no one was staying in it! The directions on Hostel World were a little difficult to follow from Sants Station, especially since the door has no sign on it since it is a private home as well. You need to check the emails they send to you prior with a photo of the door included. Would definitely stay again.


very nice accomodation near central station, quite place perfect to rest after visiting and charming staff


I am sure, that photos of that accomodation on website don´t match to reality. Our room was small, there wasn´t any facilities, any shell, any wardrobe, any window, any lustre. I felt like in prison. The beds were like its never been laundered. The maximum of uncomfortability was giant dead cockroach in toilet.

good in general terms. the thing I liked the less was the fact that the room was extremely humid because the shower was 2 meters from the bed with no division. nice location, nice people, feels safe

Very friendly and helpful staff, they really looked out for us in a time of need and were very understanding. Some rooms are more basic than others, we got to spend a night in a room with pretty much just a bed, but also in a room with it's own bath, shower and toilet which was very nice but none had windows. Free washing machine and a kitchen can be used freely, not to mention the fridge. Be prepared for a 50 euro deposit for the key though! Definitely recommend


They were awesome


Had a good stay,very good value for money and staff was excellent, thanks guys.


The staff attitude is great and very very helpful. Nice place, but the room being en suite was not divided by any walls which made it uncomfortable, little light in the room, no towels provided. However there is a kitchen (small sized) and it it possible to cook. For the money I say it still is a good deal and recommend it to people who are looking for a cheap option where to stay in Barcelona.

I stayed in the smallest room for 12 days,which I thought was good value,although not much in the way of storage facilities,basically just a bed,a fan and 4 hooks on the wall for hanging things.The area was nice and safe and very handy for the train station back to el prat airport,and also very close to the underground for going to the beach/city centre.Kitchen was adequate,although not very big and not a lot of seats for eating from.I would stay here again.


Shower leaked and staff did nothing, no toilet paper provided, washing machine was broken, no blankets for bed.
