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. :)

There were a lot of people walking in and out of the room until 2 a.m.. Problem is that the light outside th rooms are VERY bright and the door doesnt close. So the room gets really bright... ALso the internet was hardly ever working so I could not find a different hostel without a lot of work. It was okay for a couple of nights but I would definitly not go there again.

Location is really out of the way and there doesn't seem to be anything going on in the local area. The design of the rooms is great I really like the box bed idea. The atmosphere wasn't that great everyone just sat on their own in the common area/kitchen, we were travelling slightly out of season so this might not apply all year but we managed to find some sociable people and had a great time and the staff were fantastic especially Matteo and Chris, they were really funny and friendly.

This was not a social hostel at all. It's very clean and new, but don't expect to make many friends here. It's just too quiet and formal. There is a free sangria night at the sister hostel, which is a but far away, but at least you can meet people there.

Dear guest, Thank you for your review and for having chosen our hostel for your break. Regarding your comment about the social aspect, we are working hard to improve the atmosphere and make our hostel more social. For the last two months we are promoting social activities such as the Free Sangría Day and Sushi Workshops. We are sure that, in a short period of time, this hostel will be a better place to meet people. Kindest regards, Ariana A., member of The hostel Box team.

Decent place. Near to Park Guell. Simple but adequate. There are supermarkets nearby. Not too far from center of town. Good overall.

Additional tourist fee ?!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear guest, Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. We would like to explain that this tourist tax is imposed by the Catalan Ministery of Enterprise and Labour, and our duty is to collect it. This money will be used to promote sustainable and high quality turism. You will find more info on this website: http://www20.gencat.cat/docs/empresaiocupacio/20%20-%20Turisme/Documents/Arxius/dipticimpostGB.pdf Kind regards, Ariana A., The Hostel Box

Although the location is a little bit outside of the tourist centre, the hostel is about 5 minutes away from a Metro stop that takes you directly to Passeig de Gracia and Placa de Catalunya. It's also about a 10 minute walk to Park Guell which is great. The hostel itself is very clean, the bathrooms are cleaned daily. There are personal lockers for each bunk that can fit your whole pack. The only downside is there are only 2 showers per gender and the common room is also a little small.

It's close to the metro and Park Güell which is nice but it seemed like most of the guests were a bit older. I think my friend and I were the youngest people there.

A great, intimate hostel perfect for solo travellers! Everybody meets everybody and they quickly become your friends. The location was perfectly out of the touristy city centre yet had so much to offer. Great vibe all round.
