DO NOT STAY HERE! Be warned I'm not usually a fussy person when it comes to staying in hostels but this was a disgrace! Upon arrival we were not warned about the fact there was no hot water and when we questioned staff about hot water they denied knowing anything about it and there excuse was its summer, but after looking at past reviews from the rest of August it is clear we had been lied to and that there had in fact been no hot water for weeks! Stayed 1 night cancelled rest of stay.


Dirty, small and disgusting room without window and bathroom door. Hot water in the bathroom? Forget it! This is Khan home where you have to have a shower with cold water. But you get some huge bug. We told the owner the problems but nothing happened. We asked some compensation but did not get anything.

Room very small, no windows. Bed, mattress and sheets were dirty. Mattress more like sofa bed. No hot water in shower. Owner slept behind a curtain outside our room on a lounge and snored. Air con very noisy. Poor location. Paid for 4 nights but decided to leave after 1. Would never stay here again

Misunderstanding with rooms, thought we were getting a better room than we did. Staff upgraded us for free which was nice of them. Rooms are too bad for a long stay, we stayed 5 nights and was near unbearable. No windows, too small, extremely hot, dingey. Staff are lovely. Kitchen is tiny but seemed a little dirty, no area to relax and rooms are too small to spend time in. ensuite bathrooms don´t have doors, tiny outside area. Not great location, stay somewhere better.


It is close to the main train station and subway and you can find anything you want around.But there was no window in our room and no bathroom door.Internet connection is fine and staff is good.But you cant understand if it is morning or night because of non-window room so it is very depressing.There is kitchen you can use.


It was a very nice stay in the centre of Barcelona. Of course, the room was very small and without air-conditioning but there was a fan so we didn't have problems with staying there. The hostel is near the metro station, bus station and there are plenty of bars and restaurants where you can eat something cheap. The owner waches over the hostel so it is safe. Emilia


The hostel was quite good considering the money spent.


Khan Home is nearly a center. But hostel isn't clean. Room havent window! and Toilet in the badroom but there arent toilet door. I dont like this hostel.


Good location in the heart of Sants and great value for money. Staff were friendly and provided everything you need for a 'cheap and cheerful' hostel.

Hello! We (my wife, me and my daughter) searched a cheap place in Barcelone to spent 3 nights. The only "hostel" which was free for 3 persons (in the same room) was the Khan Home. So i booked this room because the photos looked not so bad. We arrived and the man from the reception gave us the keys to our "room". Everything we found in this room was dirty, there were no windows, dirty bedlinen, no dustbin. We stayed there 3 days with ceiling light. We didn't get a receipt.


It was a very cheap deal because the room was so small. What it didn't say on website is it didn't have a window. It was like being in a cell, no air or a ny ventilation. The shared bathroom was dirty.


I think it was nice time spent in friendly place, near city center, near metro and cheap supermarket, so I recommend it to all young people, who want to explore Barcelona during few days. Kamila

Cheap option for a simple room with your own bathroom. Location is fine and the staff very friendly and helpful. We were disappointed by the lack of a window in our room and the bed was not very comfortable.


In general, the cleanliness and quality of accommodation was very poor. There was no window in room. Only doors to dark air shaft (the same was true for the room next door). The room was very small for 3 persons. No wardrobe, not even any hook to hang your stuff. One of the beds was short (circa 170cm), all beds with dirty linens. The kitchen is on terrace and also very dirty. We decided to cancel the stay but we ended up paying for two nights, even though we stayed only one night.


The room was very clean and the stuff friendlty, the location is verry close to sants station
