Perfect location, lots going on. Huge bar and a big hostel so lots of people about. Staff were ok.. Forgot that i gave a deposit for my key and the guy on reception conveniently did too, just waved me goodbye. And no kitchen

Hey, Great to see you enjoyed the awesome deals and atmosphere in our Belushi's bar. And sorry the confusion with the key deposit. Not all bookings require you to leave one so it can be confusing as to who is owed what. We always put the extras in the charity box anyway so don't worry there ; ) Thanks again for your feedback. We've definitely found some stuff in there we can work with.


Nice localtion, near one of the main streets of the city. But the showers aren't so pratic and someone stolen my friend's balleys. Te bathrooms weren't really clean and the service in the bar are a little slow. But it worth to be there if you want to walk almost the whole city and have a good time.

It was great to see that you made the most of our central location. We know how important it is to be right in the heart of all the action in the city. Having said that we know that theft can sometimes happen here in the streets in Barcelona, and we hope that our staff did everything they could to help your friend. We always do whatever we can to help on these rare occasions when such things happen. We'll send you an email now to follow up ok, Talk soon, and thanks for writing


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
