We only stayed there for two nights, but it was well worth the value. Centrally located, we could walk everywhere. The staff was very friendly and the place was very clean. Great deals at the bar downstairs. I would definitely stay there again!!

Hey there, A really nice review. It's great that you took the time to chat with our team too. Helping you guys out and hanging out with guests in general is by far the best part of this job. Sounds like you're our perfect guest. Good luck with the rest of your trip and come visit again,

어떤 리셉션이 좀 불친절했지만 시설도 좋고 깔끔하고 위치도 좋아서 만족스러웠다

Nice hostel! Modern, clean, comfortable. Bunks have curtains and personal reading lights, which is great! Gear lockers consist of cages under the bed - bring your own lock. Staff friendly, a bar downstairs that does pretty good food. You also get free breakfast, which is a win! Only downside - no free storage of luggage after checkout - you have to pay for a locker (3.50 E for half a day, 5 E for 12 hours) to store your stuff.

Hey, We're really pleased that you made the most of our additional facilities. All of our team, and our management, are all travelers at heart, so we like to think we know what you guys are looking for when you chose a hostel : ) We also completely understand your point about lockers but we hope you can appreciate the extra security and convenience that those few extra euros cost. It's hard to put a price on peace of mind ; ) All the best, and thanks for your constructive review.

We only stayed one night for a stop over, had a plane at 6.30am rhe night bus for the airport is just around the corner. Both of us had a really nice pub meal for only 12€ (together) the staff were helpful with printing, buses, they even had a security guy out the front at 2,30am. Was great!

Hey, Thanks for writing. Such a shame you couldn't stay longer, but at least you know where you'll be coming if you ever visit again. We're glad that you had a chat with our door staff too. They're super nice guys and have told us that for them the hostel job is the best job ever : ) Cheers

you cannot access terraces, they are closed permanently. both lounges has no wifi. food looks & sounds good but I was sick twice because its factory food (jars/cans) put together by school leavers, no chef. keycards fail on doors daily.

Hey, I seems as though we have fallen short of your expectations in a few areas and that's never nice for us to read. We want all of our guests to fully enjoy there stay with us. We're going to write to you privately to get to the bottom of these issues. But just so you know, our chefs are of course fully qualified, our products fresh and locally sourced, and our terraces temporarily closed for a refurb. Either way it's a real shame that you didn't enjoy your experience here. Thanks,

This is the perfect location if you are planning to do all the tourist attractions in Barcelona! The hostel also has a good atmosphere and my room itself was clean. However, the wifi would only work for one of my friends that travelled in our group, and the shower room was disgusting. I was there Halloween weekend though, so that may have been part of the problem. Overall it's a good value for your money if you're staying in the city for a short time and want to be close to everything!

One of the nicest, cleanest, most modern and spacious hostels I've ever experienced.

There was a ton of space which was awesome, except they closed part of the fun downstairs area at an early hour and the bathrooms got kind of gross towards the end of the weekend.

The wifi was awful, it only worked near the reception or the first floor lounge, staff wasn't very friendly, showers were annoying (had to keep pressing the button for water every 5 seconds), and they only have a microwave in the kitchen. Other than that, everything else was good, great location, really close to the metro and La Rambla!

Loved this hostel! The rooms were clean, we had our own lockers (big enough to fit a large backpack) and a curtain on your bunk! The only thing that let this hostel down were the staff who didn't seem to keen to help..

I thought when they said there would be a kitchen, there would actually be a kitchen but there really wasn't. A few microwaves and a kettle is not a kitchen. Other than that the hostel was great.

Good services at the reception, people are nice and helpful. Also appreciated the big lockers, little light and curtains that each bed had. Very well located: at the beginning of La Rambla and close to Plaça Catalunya where the Airport Bus stop is.

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.

Cant really fault the hostel,everythings really good and ive stayed an extra 3 nights, probably the best hostel ive been to!

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.
