Stayed in the 16 bed dorm and was pleasantly surprised. Clean, quiet, easy to get around. Would TOTALLY recommend this hostel. Met some amazing people too.
Our stay was decent, but our room smelled every time we came in because of strong body odor from the sleeping guys hahaha which can't be helped of course. There was no security / locked entrances to enter the dorms, but you can pay a deposit to borrow a lock to lock your luggage under your bed. We liked the kitchen and the quietness of our dorm room at night. The location was good because there was a station near the hostel.
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
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.
Everything was great. Thanks guys!

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!
