I checked out the other day because while taking a nap on their third floor common area someone stole my phone off my person, and they refused to watch the footage only moments after i woke up, being able to catch the thief. Being every blunt and rude (Informing me i needed the police to come watch it, after going to the police, the police said when they find time they´ll go watch). I am currently on their third floor writing this review from their own computer to prove their lack of security.

Sheets were dirty and had leftover hairs on them, therefore had to purchase extra sheets. Bathroom in the room was absolutely filthy.

Anazing hostel, very kind & helpful staff. Beds were comfortable. Everything very clean. Super nice bathrooms. Free large lockers in every room. Great louge. Super nice terrace with sweeping view of the city. 5 stars all around, except for location I give 3 stars because it is slightly removed from the main Barcelona shopping and nightlife. Even still, the metro station is just cross the street so downtown is still accessible. Just beware what time the metro closes at night.

My room was super dirty including the bathroom. The staff were not helpful and rude. When I was sleeping someone stole my pencil case from my bed! There is a lot of facilities including terrace and drinks but the hostel is so huge that I did not feel comfortable there.

I'd recommend this to my friends for the social aspect. Always someone to talk to, whether it's a friendly member of staff or another smiley guest. The biggest surprise to me was that every night they had some type of fun pre-game for the clubs that night. Also the fact that they get you into some of the best clubs in Barcelona for free.The hostel was clean, they had a full kitchen you could cook, location was perfect. 100% worth the price.

the showers and lights are on a timer so it was hard to take a shower and the lights turned off on me when I was showering but everything was clean.

I just want to say: thank you guys! I felt wonderful at your Hostel!! I was there for just one day, but it turned out to be a great experience which started with the kind guy that checked me in and ended with the two nice girls that checked me out. The staff was súper nice, always with a smile on their faces! I had lots of fun at the bar from the 3rd floor, met new people. They organize a shuttle bus every night and free entrance to the greatest clubs in the city. I hope to turn back soon!

This hostel is awesome! Such a fun atmosphere. They do outings to clubs every night. 4 euros for a shot, party bus transport and entry into a club included (cover is usually 20 euros at some) very fun! Easy to meet people and cheap drinks at the bar. Bathrooms in the rooms with showers is really nice. Close to metro stations to get to tourist places in town

Very average at best, there is lots of little kids running around the place, Airconditioning is extreamly poor and controlled by the staff, mine didn't even work. The only good thing about my stay was a stunning girl that was working there from America made me smile upon entry and exit.

Good vibes, toilets smelt in all girls dorm.

Staff was nice, other than kitchen guy. It's more of a family destination it seems. Not really a hostel for solo travelers looking to meet other people. Very difficult. I was in an all girl dorm, with very messy girls. They were really loud night and day, and left their stuff in sink. Just wasn't really an ideal experience for me. Overall, the building is nice and close to a cafe. About 20 min walk to the beach, so it's not right on the water. Also, Directions from the airport are incorrecton HW

I had a great time at Urbany! I was sharing a room, but cleanning ladies kept it always very clean and tidy, passing by the room every day. Staff at reception was very helpfull and always gave me good tricks to discover Barcelona on my own. I felt like I had personal touristic guides with them. Facilities are great, and I loved the atmosphere at the common area, with great stuff there as well.

This hostel is the best hostel I have been to so far to get to know lots of people! The staff was not only friendly, but also came and chatted with us, telling us a bit about themselves. The party bus was also lots of fun:) It may not be the cleanest place and it has quite narrow showers, but I'd definitely go there again!
