Horrible beds, Very poor with equitments like cabbinets for personal items, lockers, lamps beside the bed if you come home a late night and the others in your room are sleeping, you dont wanna turn on the big lamp in the ceeling. the door to the balcony was so thin so the wind blew in to the room, which wasnt nice when its february and 5 degrees. There are plenty of nice and cheep hostels in Barcelona, this one was only cheep.
It's cheap! So don't expect much more than a bed and a place to keep our non-valuable things. We stayed on the 4th floor. The room is small but comfortable because there are only 4 beds. The shower was hot and everything is noticeably clean including the sheets. Keys are floor and door specific. You don't get a personal locker. If you are looking to party this is NOT the place. The common area is very small and people are not hanging out. Better anyway to hang out in nearby parks.
Really good location near to Sagrada Familia and center of city. Staff is so nice and helpful. Minus of this hostel: really cold room and noise.

The location is awesome, and it's really cheap, but need more bathrooms in each floor.
Fantastic location. Didn't meet anyone else staying here! Kitchen has no oven and closes early so check out facilities before buying food to prepare. I was on the 6th floor so be prepared for alot of stairs! No lock on showers but we all loose that shame after months of hostels. Decent double room with cute balcony and for a very reasonable price! Would recommend for couples looking somewhere cheap for a bit of privacy.
Hostel Olé was smelling, trashy and really cold. My boyfriend and I stayed at a room, where the door to the balcony would not close. There was no radiator and since this was mid-january, it was freezing in our room. The sanitation was really bad as well, and the smell of toilet was present constantly.
The hostel has its problems, like the size and smell of the bedroom, although its clean and the fact that the showers didnt have a lock. But its localization is great and the price also. In my opinion its worth the stay
The cupboard was nearly falling apart. There were no hangers. The pillows were torn. Linen were not ironed. The room being next to the reception sleeping was impossible until 2 AM. Some of the electrical sockets were not working. One bed had broken plank. Two chairs and a table were seen in the advertisement but did not find any in our room. Toilet could have been cleaner.

The hostel staff were friendly and helpful, our stay was easy and hassle-free and the price is very reasonable especially considering the location right next to Sagrada Familia. If you have large heavy bags or are looking for something more spacious, perhaps you should avoid this hostel as the stairs are very narrow (and there are lots of them) and our room was rather small (that was not a problem for us, especially for the price, but just a warning for travellers looking for a more luxury).
This hostel is so so. I recommend this hostel to others for a short period.
Good cheap hostel, everything were ok, you sleep with other people, hostel is clean, doors have lockers and it is in the best localization

A nice place. You receive more value for the money payed! The location is very good and the stuff is helpful ! I would recommend it!
It's a cheap shanty of a hostel, if you're looking to save money and have a great location, then look into it otherwise it was pretty awful
The location of the hostel is unbelievable close to Sagrada Familia and to the metro station. The staff was very friendly and gave us everything we needed, were informative and kind. We will 100% recommend this hostel
location is perfect when it comes to seeing sagrada familia from your room window. but, sagrada is not really a central location! it is a really cool hostel for people who came to the city for sightseeing, since they will have a comfortable bed to return to and a kitchen to make some dinner. staff is super friendly and willing to provide all the info. there is no lockers in the room, a tiny minus.
The location is one of the best part of this hostel because Barcelona is very accessible from their spot. You are directly outside the Sagrada Familia and there are two metro lines right there. It makes getting anywhere easy. Staff was very helpful and made great recommendations on where to go for food and drink. There is a kitchen and fridge so we were able to cook in when we needed. The place was so great we extended our stay. The only downside is that there are no personal lockers.
This place was alright. Not a hostel feel because it's so big, but it's close to the Sagrada familia which was good. We stayed in a twin share room, so 15€ was pretty good.
The best staff was of Monika. Very helpful and smiling person. I found the hostel big opportunity for travellers who want to explore city of Barcelona.
