Loved this hostel! Perfect location of you want to see the main Gaudi things, and close to two different metro lines, but also really walkable area. We booked a shared bathroom room and ended up getting our own! It feels like you're living in a spanish apartment for a few days because you basically are, which is really cool. Where we were, 3 rooms shared their own kitchen. Only thing it lacked is a good area to hang out and meet people...like a bar or something like some other hostels have.

the directions at the start could have been more straight forward even though the hostel was easy to find

A really nice hostel. Located on a small street and within a walking distance to many tourist areas. It's also a great value for money - it was cheaper than other hostels with similar location. They also organize a wide range of activities - pub crawls, walking tours or dinners with traditional Spanish food. I'll be happy to come back to this hostel during my next stay in Barcelona :)

A block from Girona metro, good mix of tapas and restaurants nearby. Store across the street. Hostel was clean. They'll launder your clothes for 10 bucks, which was nice. The communal suppers and pub crawls were fun. Rooms can be hot, as there's no air con in them. People tended to crash in the movie room as it has air con. Was like a sleepover, haha. Rose was our pub crawl guide, and it was a blast. Good hostel for meeting people. Hostel was pretty quiet.

The staff were so amazing and so incredibly helpful. Rose, Carlo you guys are so BEAUTIFUL! Rose gave me the best tips on where to go for a good meal and just a nice stroll around the city on my way to get to La Catedral. Carlo was incredible and even when these horrible girls were shouting at him and being rude, he was still very nice and lovely and helpful! You guys are the best! They also hold family style dinners which were cheap, delcious and such a good way to meet others!

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!

Very well located just 10 min walking from Plaza Catalunya and La Rambla they offer different service such as rent a bike or a chef who cooks for everybody in the evening. I definitely suggest 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

I really loved the cook every night. He made a very authentic paella for only 6 Euros. The location was right off of the metro stop, but about a twenty minute walk to the center of Barcelona. Overall, a great atmosphere and very vibrant crowd.

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.
