A little bit out of the city, but great value for money and great staff (especially Chris and Robb). Had a really good time with these guys :)

The hostel is small, bathroom quite clean. However i shared a room with 16 other people and it was really stuffy whenever I got in.

That's a great place to stay one-two night. Or maybe more - if you prefer discover the city (and Barcelona totally worth it!), not stay in the hostel. Small, clean, calm and safety. Not in the center, but the cost is rather low. Staff is very nice)

Dear guest, Thank you for your comment, it's really important for us to know your thoughts to improve our hostel. Regarding your comment about the blanket, we regret nobody explained you that the blankets were under your bed. We wish you have had told us you were cold; we would have given to you a blanket or we would have turned up the heating for you. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again at The Hostel Box. Kind regards, Ariana A., The Hostel Box team.

This hostel was very quiet and clean. I don't care much about a hostel having an awesome bar or anything, so the fact that it was only a small kitchen was perfect for me. We enjoyed our time very much at the Hostel Box Gaudi!

The bed was very nice, only wish it had curtains like in the photo! There is not a big common area so I wouldn't say this is a great place to meet people, but it's nice enough for a night or two.

Dear guest, Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. We really appreciate the comments from our guests. We are glad you liked out 'box' bed; we are really proud of that innovative sleeping concept. With regard to your comments towards the curtains, we apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused you during your stay; we already changed the photos. We hope this response finds you well. With our best regards, Ariana A., The Hostel Box Team.

The rooms were long and somewhat oddly shaped. Every time someone came into my room, I woke up, I got woken up about 5 or 6 times that night, which sucked. The kitchen was nice, and so were the bathrooms. The staff was helpful.

Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your experience; your comments are big help for us to improve. We appreciate your kind words about the staff and the common areas. Regarding your comment about the rooms, it is true that they are kind of oddly shaped but we understand it as an improvement. Our bunk beds are shaped as capsules, where there is more privacy than in a regular bed. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again. Kind regards, Ariana A., The Hostel Box Team.

Only average for security as anyone could just walk in and straight into the rooms - they are 24/7 hours and the door is always unlocked. Although you do have a secure locked drawer integrated into your bed so no-one would be able to steal anything! Good location, quite area right next to the Green L4/L2 line I believe, that lead straight to Barcelona center in 2 stops. Extremely clean, staff are very kind, helpful and polite but there is only 1 set of hobs, 1 fridge and 1 microwave (no oven)

Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your stay in our hostel. Thank you very much for pointing your lack of security feeling. We are working to establish a new system to make the hostel safer; meanwhile, nowadays we keep the street door locked and only the person in the front desk can allow the entrance. Without a doubt, feedback like yours encourages us to continue working hard. Kind regards, Ariana A.

Great set up,fully stocked kitchen. Clean hostel. Stayed an extra SIX days because this hostel made me feel at home. Heart of the locals hangout, Gracia neighborhood. PLEASE be sure to experience the local life in plasa del sol. THE box set up is unique amd comfy. If you figured away to use the sheets as a curtain like I did( I have a clothes line), its even better. Its your own cave. Because of the set up there's no difference between the 16 or 8 dorm bedroom.
