Just rich people!! The Crew hostel so boring!! Hahah Not talk too much! Boring time😳😳

The line between guests and staff is very thin which means that they will often hang out or bring you with them if they know a cool party at night. This does not compromise excellent service and generally clean vibe. Great place to stay.

No kitchen :( but breakfast is a good spread, love the fruit, and coffee machine is available most hours and the hot chocolate from it was stellar. Showers good, but would be nice if they removed the light timers. Showering and the lights would go out, little creepy. Staff were pretty good, served by one girl who was a little airy, wouldn't go out of her way to do anything for you. Rooms ok, showers hot :) you will be comfortable here :)

J'ai vraiment apprécié le décor, l'accueil est chaleureux ainsi que le personnel. L'idée d'installer des canapés est pratique pour discuter avec d'autres voyageurs et ainsi faire la connaissance de nouvelles personne très sympathiques !

It´s a cosy place with lots of character, Good location is perfect 10 min walk from Plaza Catalunia, The staff is great, When you arrive they give you a map and show you the best places to visit with good restaurants as well, I would highly recommend this hostel to all and will be using it again for my next visit to Barcelona!

Stayed there for one night, the hostel has a great location and very good connections. 45 minutes to the airport. The first floor looks awesome, they have a terrace and really nice furniture, it was very clean (also the bathrooms looks very very clean). You can stay in and have dinner (they have a nice chef) and have a beer with other people from the hostel, watch a football match or just hang out the hostel. Staff is very nice also. Doors creak a lot so the noise is a little disturbing.

The location, facilities, and atmosphere of the hostel was all great but the biggest drawback were all the hidden fees for staying there. It made one wonder what was included when every time you turn around something costed extra. The point of hostels are to hang out with other travelers at a cheaper price, that seemed to be a concept lost at this location.

You couldnt cook in the kitchen, but other than that the place was awesome. They served breakfast for €3 and dinners for €5 everynight.
