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.


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 :-)


It was really nice experience in sleep green. It's clean and quiet. Location it's really good. Easy to trevel to anywhere. And I met really amazing friends from sleep green. By the way if you are a party person better to choose somewhere else. Because sleep green really quiet. It's good for people to rest there. Hope you enjoy your journey!cheers!


Really great location to get to from Universitat and to access Barcelona! Easy check-in, really nice rooms with cool balconies so you can be sure to get a good sleep as it's small share. It's wasn't a hostel to stay if you want to meet other travellers looking to socialise at night. (E.g party). Not really any common areas except the dining room. No alcohol allowed in the hostel and the wifi was extremely slow for my entire stay.


After having a terrible experience at the InOut hostel I got a refund and booked the rest of my stay here in Barcelona. SUPER friendly, easygoing, young, relatable, helpful staff that speak GREAT english! They have A/C in EVERY bedroom and every night I slept here was a comfortable one! The location was great! right in the center of downtown, everything is accessible by metro or walking. There is about an 30min EASY walk to the beach. Security is good but could use locks on the bedroom doors.


Lovely hostel but in my opinion overpriced. Great staff and central location. Not a party hostel but a place to recover.


Good clean hostel in a good location.


Had a bit of a nightmare at first when we arrived but it was resolved fairly quick. Great staff that care!

individual lockers, amazing wifi, helpful staff, kitchen for use, quiet hostel, laundry service.


Great place, amazing staff, showers were great, good location, good wifi speeds, only thing letting the place down was the average air con.


Amazing location and very good vibes! Only nice people staying here. Staff was really helpful and friendly. Cleaning was pretty good too. Only minus is not having a common area to hang out, only The kitchen which was really small. Also, it is on The second floor and there is no lift. Besides that, was a lovely stay and I really recommend it.


Really friendly staff. 5 min walk from the metro and easy to find.


I had a great stay here. The staff is super friendly and very accommodating. You can really feel they want you to have a good time in Barcelona.
