This hostel is really convenient (perfect location, facilities are really well thought) but very big. The food at the bar is consistent and cheap. Just one thing: wifi can be hard to get when there are a lot of people in the premises

This hostel isn't on par with other St. Christophers. It is hot; even though the staff said they could turn the air down, they don't. Not very clean, excepting the beds which were fine. Light was broke. The place is one of/the loudest I've been to in maybe a dozen countries; the kind of people that come to this hostel are the absolute worst, uncultured and uninteresting people I could imagine. Even for the partying type, this place seems unfacilitating, and there are surely better hostels

its just good that its in the center and its safe. showers last 14 seconds literally. staff is always grumpy (or hangover?). breakfast tastes like plastic so even if its free dont bother waking up to try it. rooms and bed are nice but there a continuous commotion on the corridors and in the rooms so dont expect a very good continuous sleep. other than this everything is great.

The location is excellent the toilets and showers were always smelly and not clean a member of the staff gave me attiude cause i asked her a question during "the end of her shift" and ofcourse i didnt know that piece of information. Others were v helpful. breakfast was poor....coffee was good tho. security wise it was ok. i was surprised to know that there are boys rooms on the floor of the female dormitories.

The entire hostel was very clean which is hugely appreciated!! Kudos for having curtains on all the bunks, it adds an extra bit of privacy :) The only thing this hostel could improve on is their customer service. The front desk employees were rude and indifferent to requests or inquiries. Put a smile on your face people!! Other than that, my friend and I had a great stay and would recommend it to anyone who wants to be close to the centre.

Excellent place to stay. Location is perfect. Belushi's bar is excellent with cheap drink prices.

Overall good, but staff seem to be so laid back that they work very slowly when checking people in and take forever to get through a line of people! The breakfast was also not the best. Stale food, weird milk, repeatedly ran out of spoons and cups! But all in all we had a wonderful stay, felt safe, enjoyed the people staying there, and would come again.

I thought the staff were very unhelpful and slow both at the bar and reception. The TV's were broken and so the atmosphere wasn't very lively. This is because matches being played at the 'Sports Bar' weren't able to be watched properly.

If you want to see the sites of Barca, meet great people, and have an great communal area - stay here. I had an absolute blast, and could not have stayed at a better place as a solo traveler. The added benefits of the bar/restaurant don't hurt either!

Very secure hostel(keycard entry to use elevator, get into floor, and to get into room). Large, but very noisy, lockers under beds. Bathrooms weren't the cleanest, hot water was on and off, but it wasn't terrible. Awesome location right in the center of town off las rambles.

Great location and security and... that's about it! This hostel is ran almost like an army barrack. No atmosphere, staff not really helpful, we learnt where the common room/kitchen area is by mistake. Breakfast is free but dreadful and everything tastes like cardboard (and the bowls and dishes which its served are not really clean). Bed are comfy but the rooms are noisy and and thers a constant hustle on the corridors because there are too many people on each floor.

Some of Stuff was not friendly

The hostel is a bit too soulless for me. There was no kitchen - only fridges and a microwave. Don't go there to meet people (unless you're prepared to hang out in the bar all the time). The restaurant was nice and relatively cheap. Breakfast was ok, great that it's free! The lockers in the rooms are really good and there are curtains and plugs for every bed - excellent!

All of the hand dryers were broken on the third floor.

Under bed lockers were great (and a decent size!), the curtains over the bunks are good as well as the individual light and power point - downsides were the rentable lockers were too small to put a decent sized bag in, and my room at least was filthy (although I think that had more to do with the people in the room), the showers were those stupid 'push the button in and the water runs for 1 minute' ones, and there wasn't even a hook to hang your towel on, as well as no bathroom bench space

Absolutely great hostel in regards to location and price but the staff were not helpful at all and did not smile once the whole time we were there. Another problem we found frustrating was the showers only staying on for 15 seconds at a time, wasn't ideal.

fantastic, staff was friendly and pleasant. The rooms were clean, each bed had a curtain for privacy and a locker below it. However, my friend who was on the top bunk found it difficult to climb up to her bed as the third runk was at the ledge of bed and she couldn't put her feet on it. but apart from that, it's fine!
