A great hostel- good location for the central area (there is plenty of walking in Barcelona in any case!) Staff were always friendly and more than willing to help/answer questions. Rooms/bathrooms were fairly clean and security was good with lockers available in the rooms (I also liked the waterproof wristband keys!) I enjoyed the free walking tour which was recommended by the hostel but didn't get to join the dinners/bar crawls. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this hostel!

Stayed in private room. Couldn't participate in many group activities b/c of time. Would not recommend this if staying in a private room. CONS: -Greeting by front desk woman was very poor. She gave us a bad impression of the whole place. Needs serious attitude check. -Safe in room was broken and we reported it and received no help -Room was SO HOT and we were looked at like idiots when asked to turn it down -Towels/sheets not cleaned or replaced even when left on floor PRO-close to metro

Nice friendly staff who welcome me on arrival. Lovely room mates and great location. Sometimes room would get a smell of sewerage but very minor. Showers I found were pretty rubbish and they were the bush button timer ones. All in all it was a fantastic hostel I would recommend it and I would stay there again

Really nice relaxed hostel with friendly and helpful staff. The private room was in an apartment above the hostel, with a terrace and air conditioning. Excellent wee spot, will be back when next in Barca.

loved the Mediterranean Youth Hostel! Clean, great location and the group dinners were bomb (the best paella with chicken, white sausage, and rabbit). The staff was the best part of my stay! Everyone was extremely friendly, approachable and they know how to have fun. Would definetly stay again.

Had an amazing time staying here! the staff were super friendly and always helpful and even though we arrived to early to check in we were able to leave our bags which was really helpful.Food was amazing for €6, the atmosphere was great, met loads of amazing people even though i stayed in a private room. Only small downside is that when you go on the pub crawl (which was great) they don't really make it clear how to get back to the hostel so lots of us ended up having to take taxi's back.Pricey

Hostel is ok. But there is a weird smell on humidity or mold in our room. I think it might be coming from the airconditioner.

Great way to meet people! It has a common room that is used regularly, the family meals that is cooked there by the workers is a popular treat which allows you to meet people too :) The cleanliness wasn't awful but pretty standard so cant really complain Probably the second place I've stayed throughout Europe that has ruined my liver lol Good times

It was your average hostel. You can pay for dinner and going out at night which is a lot of fun. The hostel would get really hot and there was no air conditioning which wasn't fun. The staff wasn't great about cleaning out the fridge so it had a bad smell to it. There were no towels (paper or cloth) in the bathroom so everything was wet all the time. Bathroom also didn't have hooks other than inside the shower so all your stuff got wet as well. But it served its purpose and it's to be expected.

All round a great hostel in a pretty sweet location. Friendly & super helpful staff, clean, good wifi & kitchen facilities. There's air-con(!) and a nice little terrace to sit on late in the afternoon. Bathrooms are modern and they play music throughout the hostel which adds to the welcoming & relaxed vibe. Would definitely recommend it & stay here again.

The hostel staff is amazing, they are friendly and they always try to help you with everything. The Dinners are so delicious and the pub crawls every night are awesome as well and it is so easy to meet fellow travelers in one of the common spaces , so don't be stupid and book this amazing hostel!!
