Dirtiest bed I've ever seen in a hostel. I had I borrow cleaning supplies from the staff to clean it myself. Location is great though and staff is very friendly. No locks on doors (first time I've ever seen this, made me uncomfortable) and breakfast was a joke. Cheap place for someone who doesn't care about cleanliness or a secure room.

Dear guest, thanks for your review. Regarding the cleanliness, we have a daily cleaning service and the receptionists check rooms and toilets, too. We are sorry that our breakfast didn’t meet your expectations; we offer a free breakfast (included in the price and generally well appreciated by our guests), consisting of milk, coffee, tea, chocolate powder, cereals, bread, butter, jam. Anyway, we want to apologize for any inconvenience caused. Regards, Anna C., member of The Hostel Box team

Not a party hostel, at least when I was there. Good bed to sleep in if that's all your looking for

Hostel was good, but dirty. The floors get cleaned, but there is dust everywhere on everything above the knee. Even in the are surrounding my mattress there were crumbs and dust - it was a bit disgusting as it looked like no one ever cleans there. Even the little convenient nook next to the bed was covered in dust and something sticky, definitely didn't enjoy cleaning off whatever was left behind from my cell phone.

This was a hostel that has arrived in the future with the hostel pod concept. It is a great improvement on the old bunk bed idea. These pods are very comfortable with no bed creaking and have curtains that can close you off from the other people if required and also have lights and sockets. They are very simple to construct and would appear to be sturdier and cheaper. Overall this was a very pleasant experience close to the centre of Barcelona.
