Highly recommended - really friendly staff, genuinely interested in you having a good visit to Barcelona! Got chatting to several other hostellers even though I wasn't in the hostel most of the time because that's the atmosphere: easy-going and only a short walk to most places.

Amazing hostel for its cleanliness, spacious lockers, comfy beds, and friendly + helpful staff. Push shower is a bit annoying but hey it's eco. Towels are a bit pricey, €2.50. Location is fantastic, short walking distance of tons of sights + shopping areas. The hostel is VERY quiet at night starting around 10-11. My friend and I were told to quiet down when talking in normal voices in the bathroom. Nice quiet place to sleep tho. Doors to rooms don't have locks but the hostel felt very safe.


Great hostel in great location. Staff is friendly the only downside is there is no common area to hang out in but the rooms do have a very small balcony with two chairs that's nice


The hostel provides everything you need to have a nice time in this fascinating city: caring and knowledgeable staff, security lockers, well equipped kitchen, 24h reception. Best of all is definitely the location! Highly recommended!

Aircons worked good only at reception, it was very hot in rooms. Strange eco - strange economy. This eco label means their money economy. Strongly overpriced imho. There are a lot of better hotels nearby. Room doors doesn't have locks. And there is no public area there except kitchen and reception cause it very small hostel. So 40-50 euros per bed its too much for this hostel even in August.

Hello, we're genuinely eco-friendly otherwise the European Union wouldn't have awarded use with the EU label. Aircon is available in the entire hostel so it surprises us to read your comment. Yes, the hostel is small, which means staff can give a more personalized service and guests get to meet each other easier. We believe that's positive. Non-lockable rooms don't decrease security in a small hostel. We have security cameras, individual lockers, 24 hours reception and are in a safe location :-)
