In this place, everything is safe and in an order. You have one card to reach everywhere. It's a really safe and systematic hostel. Rooms were nice, clean and safe. The only thing I didn't like was that they request rental money for backpacks and luggages. I needed to go to Central Bus station to use luggage storage and it was half of the price they wanted. But the rest was perfect. 9/10

Very cheap but some extra services such as luggage leave and lines need extra money!

I'm not usually a fan of hostels this large, but Urbany definitely is an exception. Staff was super friendly and our private room was great. Fun atmosphere for those who are looking for a good time but still relaxed for people who are looking for a more quiet stay. Location is great, with a metro stop right across the street. Short trip into town to all the major sights.

Great Hostel close to the main area in Barcelona, Tram is a short walk from the place. Enjoyed my stay!

Placed in a private room above the canteen with blaring music all night long until 12.30 (for business, until bus takes "young people" to the disco). I have always travelled and stayed at hostels around the world, this is definitely the worst experience I had. Asked kindly to change room to another floor, was told music should not go on until late...but it did again. Spent two sleepless nights.

Please allow us to apologize because your experience wasn't on the standard stated for Urbany Hostels. Concerning about our 3rd floor, we try to offer a variety of services for all ages, such as the bar, TV, computers with internet, sofas, activities, food nights (paella, tapas) as well as a nice terrace,where customers can meet and socialize. We will pay more attention to the things you comment. Thank you, hope to see you again and have the chance to change your mind. Best regards, Urbany staff

I didn't like the fact that the windows were not able to be open. It can get pretty smelly up in the room with 8 individuals without ventilation. Other than that, breakfast was a primo! Unless you ask the cleaning lady in the morning to open it for a few hours.

We would like to thank you for taking your time to write us a review. Due to the height of the building we have to be strict for safety reasons, we had some bad experience in the past and we need to be aware about this issue. We hope to see you again in our hostel! Best regards, Urbany Staff

I had a really good time and met great people. The staff was helpful with everything that I needed and made efforts to make everyone feel comfortable. It's a bit farther from most sites to see but only a few minutes away by metro. Thanks so much!

Una muy buena opción para los viajeros con poco presupuesto. El hostal está muy bien ubicado. A 10 minutos caminando desde la estación del metro y a 15 minutos caminando de la sagrada familia. El personal esta siempre dispuesto a ayudarte, y prestan servicio 24 horas. El desayuno estuvo muy bien, lo suficiente para pasar la mañana con tu estomago lleno. También tienen wifi las 24 horas, y las habitaciones son limpias y cómodas. Tienen las opción de conexión al toma corriente europeo y UK

Really good location, easy to find and walk to from public transport. The staff weren't exactly helpful which made it difficult for us to plan our days in Barcelona. The rooms were really clean although quite small. The atmosphere in the bar was a little lacking not sure if this is due to it being later in the season or not. The biggest downfall we had was that there for two windows in our room that we weren't allowed to keep open and the cleaners would come in and shut them mid arvo. Not good.

The lockers locations do not tally with the bunk locations, which can cause confusion.

The hostel was a little far from the center of Barcelona, but the transportation to the clubs and en-suite bathrooms make up for it! staff was super friendly and helpful.

Absolutely loved the hostel, it smelled a little musky when we first got to our room but opening the window fixed that problem pretty quickly. Only a 2 minute walk from the metro which is fantastic and very easy to find. Also the food they offer and 2 for 1 happy hour is a great way to have some fun without having to go spend heaps of money at a bar or club
