Great stay. The hostel was closing for renovations the day we left. So some of the little issues were probably attended to. I'd definitely recommend this hostel. It's fun and the staff are really friendly! Only a short walk into the busy part of town.


Undoubtably a brilliant location. I found staff to be competent but not very conversational or friendly. My biggest complaint was when i arrived the dorm smelt of terrible Body odour, no attempt made to freshen the room up. The rooms are very basic, just lockers and cheap metal framed beds. The men's bathroom is located the otherside of reception to all of the rooms which isn't ideal. And the wifi is poor. You are forced to 'like' the hostel on Facebook before you can use it!!


Charging for luggage keeping is really a shame


I'd stay there again, for sure!

Couldn't be in a better location, which means you might think it was pricey and not that good. Couldn't be more wrong, excellent value for money, but more importantly a great place to stay. A little quieter than most places, but still easy to meet people. I have found my go to place for accommodation when I come to Barcelona.


All in all it was a nice hostel to stay, well located, friendly staff, quite clean and generally good value for money. Minor drawbacks were the lack of a microwave oven, the lack of door keys to the rooms and the fact that they charge you for keeping your luckages after 14:00 and am not sure if they are that "green" as they claim ...!! Still though I highly recommend it for spending a few nights in Barcelona


Very clean and maintained. Helpful staff. I enjoyed my stay very much.

Lovely place! Staffs are very friendly and the location is just right by placa de catalunya, bus stop from/to airport, subway station, and tapas restaurants. It was a little bit difficult to find the sign up on the 2nd floor window, but eventually found it ok. Our room had a nice little balcony and little chairs. Loved reading there looking down the feel of the town.
