The staff was really nice to us. But the rooms smelled funny, perhaps they need a better ventilation system in them or use aromatic spray more often.

It's impossible to tell who works here and who is a long term resident. During my 4 days there I felt increasingly uncomfortable as racial & homophobic slurs were tossed about amongst staff & thier friends. The tipping point for me was when a staff member wrote a homophobic slur on the chalkboard wall. Overall this place is not safe for LGBT guests. There is very little social space that is always occupied by long term guests. Security is minimal at best and the kitchen area is always a mess

Dear guest, In your review, you make serious accusations in a subject that, for us, is very important. We deeply regret if you felt insecure and offended by a member of our staff (it came to our knowledge that he already apologized to you and explained that it was all a joke with another member of the staff). It's been a misunderstanding and we regret the inconveniences that has caused you. We're openly gay friendly and that's why we take this matter very seriously. Regards, The Hostel Box

This was my second trip to the hilly side of town, yes fresh air again and very pleasant walks. It was quite a nice place to relax.

Staying at this hostel was a pleasant experience and I really enjoyed being out of the center of the city for a while. There were very interesting scenery near the mountain view and the fresh morning fresh air.

I stayed there only one night in the 16 mixed dorm (because I traveled with my boyfriend) and the dorm was full so it was kinda stuffy and stinky. besides that everything was pretty good. nice bathrooms, nice staff, nice place, just a little far from the center of the city but the metro is always great for that.

Great place especially the guys which work the night shift from Madrid and Germany they were lovely and very helpful. Only thing was the toilet paper keep running out and the hand towels never got changed during the day. Kitchen, laundry, wifi all great.

Pretty new hostel so everything seemed new. The beds were great! The kitchen was very heavily used and needs to be bigger and have more utensils and dishes. Bathrooms were nice. Staff was wonderful. Location was pretty good, although far from most things but I kinda liked that. Shout out to the cleaning lady! She was wonderful.

I have absolutely nothig negative to say about this place! Great value for money! All bunks have their own outlet/light/shelf. There is free wifi throughout. And my favorite bit: you see the cleaning lady come every morning! The staff was also very friendly! We ended up staying 3 nights more than originally planned!

I had a great time at this hostel! Very good location. Suuuper awesome staff, especially Adriana! Her and Ana were very helpful (i didn't meet the others) and went above and beyond to make for a great and comfortable stay! The only thing I would say about facilities were the toilets flush poorly (as I've noticed in most of Spain) and the lockers/drawers could do with a wipe after use. BUT that wouldn't stop me from recommending this place and staying here again! GREAT experience! :) GRACIAS !!!

Great location for Parc Guell and the less tourist areas. Good solid beds with no shaking in the night!

Really great hostel experience, especially for a solo female traveller-- surrounding streets very well lit at night, felt very safe

The staff are all fantastic. Each one is so friendly and helpful. They always seem genuinely pleased to interact with you and they are fluent English speakers. The whole hostel is excellently cleaned by a wonderful woman everyday. Close to two metro stops. Small so it's never too crowded. Right next to Parc Guell. My favorite hostel in Europe.

The location is excellent (right in the Barrio de Gracia, and near the green metro line, which gets you basically everywhere), people in the reception were really friendly and available, and the atmosphere is good. I just think sometimes they could do a better cleaning job, for ex. under the mattress there was some lint.

Clean and cosy rooms, very close to Park Güell and tram stations. Good kitchen and big common room. But they have only one toilet for each gender. That means sometimes you need to wait. :)
