it is a nice hostel, good location, the staff could be a bit friendlier. very clean and basically worth the money. would go there again.
Very nice place. Fiendly people and there´s a nice terrace where you can smoke and have a beer till 11pm. The thing that puzzled me a bit was how come on the second floor(20 people) there´s only one toilet and bathroom for gents and ladies. 4 days there and no queue or anything but still....Keep up the good work. I´ll be back :D
This is not really a youth hostel, tourist/backpacking type hostel. There were many people staying there that seemed to be resident Catalonians or there for a long-term stay. This is fine except for the rooms are 18 bed rooms for the most part, and some of the long-term residents have problems with people coming in late, being excessively loud, not speaking Spanish/Catalonian, etc. A problem when Barcelona's nightlife runs so late.
Nice location simple and easy to find. Excellent value for money good rooms and good kitchen. Amazing staff friendly and helpfully ;) thank u so much!

very nice, even 14 mixed bedroom was comfortable with air conditioning and deposit boxes, so u can feel safely, u have ur own shelf and light also contact in ur 'box' :) Thank you so much, was very nice to sleep there:)
The staff were amazing! They really made you feel welcome and wanted. Also the other travellers were great spirited. This was not like a hostel at all, more like a big family home, everything was sparkling clean and stayed that way.
I like it is placed in Gracia. I've been several times in barcelona, and it is one of my favorites one. cheap and good food around! and the calm of park guell. love it. the staff was so nice. i really recommend it
Spent the last 6 months traveling this was great and cheap no issues except I think I was the only person missing a wooden slat under my bed right where you sit on it. So the guy at the front desk put an old ironing board under the mattress. Did the job haha
A nice stay in a friendly and clean hostel! Good location, gets very hot in the 16 bed dorm though!

Decent enough place, security was pretty good and most of the staff was friendly. There are a LOT of people in one room though, so be prepared for some serious snoring throughout the night. Pretty good location, we were able to walk to most of the places we wanted to get to and the metro is close by. My only real issue is that there was 1 shower for a 14 bed dorm, so there was a lot of waiting around if you wanted to take a shower first thing in the morning.
Nice hostel, simple and clean. On arrival location seemed a bit out of the way, but it turned out to be very accessible to the rest of the city, both on foot and by metro. Very friendly staff especially the girl who greeted us on arrival. Good facilities, clean, and with comfortable beds. The dorms are quite spacious and have lockers to use. Not the most sociable atmosphere, but the communal area was nice with kitchen and sofas/tv etc. Would recommend this hostel as a good base for exploring!
