Well.. Compared with other hostel in bcn based on my prior experience, this place seems to be way too modernized for me :( everything had to be paid by machines. Plus, restrooms are in the room, very near the bed. and the shower tap is really annoying so i was going to have to press it every minute to take shower...

Before coming I read reviews about people complaining there is no hot water. My experience was, there is hot water but it is limited so you have to shower early before other people. My friend also said that you have to adjust the hot water lever every time you turn on the shower. All in all great atmosphere, hostel is clean and it's worth the money.

When the shower is very uncomfortable. Warm water does not come out well. But the location is the best.

Very good breakfast. Didn´t like the room. Too many people and you couldn´t open the window, so, very stinky!

Awesome location and comfy beds. Staff need a serious attitude adjustment; often made us feel like we were inconveniencing them and gave no explanation of where the facilities were in the hostel.

Wifi is generally very good in all the rooms. Free breakfast is a definite plus especially after a night of partying in Barcelona.

The staff went out of their way to help me. I needed help communicating back home and they were so understanding. When I had questions about booking tickets they called to get me the I do. Overall a very pleasant experience. The breakfast was great too.

Hey there, Thanks for leaving us such a balanced review. It's great to know what we're doing wrong, as much as what we're doing right, as it's how we grow and change for the better for our future guests : ) We're pleased to read that you enjoyed our restaurant and table tennis, but a little disappointed to see we didn't seem to live up to your expectations with regards to our bathroom facilities. We'll certainly be looking into it further to see what improvements we can make, Thanks

The location is perfect- right around the corner of Las Ramblas, but quiet enough to have a good night sleep. Rooms and bathrooms were clean during my stay, saw cleaning ladies in very different times of day/night. Yes- balcony doors are only opened when room is being cleaned, i hope it is different in the summer. Beds are comfortable and spacious, curtains give you privacy even in dorm rooms. All in all- if you like these big kind of hostels- it's your place to stay!

Great location. Nice dorms. Charging point by the bed with light and curtain. Showers sucked. Free breakfast was good. Average wifi. Helpful staff.

staff is super friendly, which i think determines your trip. i was worried a lot about this hostel after reading a few bad comments on here. i wanna answer some of those comments based on my experience. a. a shared bathroom sucks: partly agree. the shower flow is weak and temp control is not easy. b. breakfast sucks: i disagree. it is average. and you can eat all-you-want. c. security sucks. : i disagree. get good, strong locks then you are on the safe.

It was in a really central area of Barcelona. I only stayed one night but there didn't seem to be that much of a social atmosphere. The breakfast was good with bread, cheese, ham, cereal, and fresh fruit. I also ate at the restaurant which was pretty good and the discount was nice. You do have to pay to store your stuff before/after checkin/out. They also really want to keep your key deposit. I had to ask for mine explicitly. Overall a nice place but nothing special.

The security was good, facilities were also good as they have an elevator in hostel, and curtains for all beds. However the showers and toilets were terrible. A little bit smelly but I can endure it, but the shower water was really weak, it just flows over my head. It was terrible. And only one toilet for an ensuit room, we should wait for people coming out. And the staffs were not very familiar. Anyway the location is quite nice, very close to Catalunya square, la ramblas(?) and the metro.

Hey there, It was good of you to leave us such a detailed review. There is a lot in here for us to take into consideration, We're sorry that our shower facilities didn't seem to live up to your expectations. We feel that one bathroom for an en suite room is sufficient, but we can appreciate that often people may need to use it at the same time, and it's something that we will not overlook for future developments, We're glad you seemed to enjoy yourself overall though, Thanks again

Excellant hostel! Great location- near the metro. I especially choose it because it is the nearest hostel near the bus stop for the night bus to the airport.It is quite big hostel with multiple floors. Beds have an outlet next to each bed and a curtain for privacy. Only drawback is the bathrooms/ showers are separated and like public stalls. The common room is huge with a restaurant attached which offers delicious meals. Laundry services were not working. Staff seemed quite busy to answer ques

There wasn't enough showers honestly for the amount of people on my floor. I often showered at odd times. Other than that, it was great, I loved the "pod" beds as it offers a sense of privacy. The internet didn't always work very well but that's what happens when there are a lot of people in a hostel.
