The most amazing hostel we've ever stayed in. It had amazing staff, a neat vibe with a cool decor. Nice cozy lounge area. Really good waffles for breakfast, and something each night (soup or sangria). Good free 'wild walking tour'. Lovely fully equiped kitchen. Super clean. Nice rooms, helpful with a fan. Wifi didn't reach to all the rooms.
Really nice staff and hostel. Neat decor and nice garden area. Free good sangria for an hour at night. There were crepe batter in the morning to make your own. Two different free walking tours with Fillipo was fun and informative. Could use a few more implements and upgrades for the kitchen, like sharp small knives and more pans. Wifi was intermittent. Was nice that the garden shut down at midnight so quiet for sleeping. Could use little things like hooks and shower head wall attachment.
Very nice location. Good wifi connection and computers available free. Hostel was very clean. Amazing staff had great suggestions, we even saw a free flamenco dance recital because of their suggestion. Good free walking tour with Greco (sp?). The beds were sturdy but close to the ceiling in some rooms. Breakfast was just two slices of bread and milk, you had to pay extra for a portioned cooked breakfast. There was nice events at night. The courtyard doesn´t stop at night so can be loud.
Staff was excellent with our requests. Location is good, considering cost of the city, and an easy walk to the old town, and good variety of shops close. The one computer didn´t work the whole visit. False advertising on the postal service, and laundry facilities as there are none. Showers were often cool for long periods, couldn´t seem to handle more than one person showering at a time. Kitchen lacked a lot, only one pot, and had to go to the desk often for cultery and dishes, vary bare.
Great sturdy wood bunk bed. Reading light. Nice separated shower and toilet. Unfortunately no kitchen. Nice hostel and very large. Had a decent breakfast but have had better at other HI hostels. Nice bar, sitting areas and games areas. Neatly placed in a valley. Easy access to a bus for the airport (#9 only 20 min ride and bus comes every 15 minutes) and easy walk to main sites. Quite a ways from the train station but I walked it and only 30 minutes on a nice day but there is a bus.
Reading lights. There were no bunk beds in my room. Nice shower. Good burgers available and decent price with the discount from your stay. There was a microwave and they will lend cutlery. Wifi is fairly poor. Easily to accessible to some good metro lines and neat area. Good distance from the centre for Paris. There is a pickup for the free walking your of Paris. Nice bar and restaurant. Basic breakfast. Staff helpful and fun. Bonus of free towels
Only a hot plate for cooking and only one so difficult if you are cooking or if someone else needs to as well. Could do with some more cutlery especially at breakfast. Basic breakfast of cereal and fresh baguettes. Neat set up to the rooms. Bunk beds a bit noisy and flimsy. Walls are very thin and you can hear people in the next rooms easily. No really luggage lockers in room. Only a locker with shelves and not enough for the people in the room. Nice showers
Our room ended up being dim because a light switch didn't work and wasn't passed along after I told staff and has to remind them. The kitchen area is a strange set up but the staff does your dishes. Needs more fridge room. Comfy beds but a bit flimsy. Breakfast is many choices of cereal and toast with juice and coffee. Great location. Hostel puts on a free tour, no tipping. Shows the main sights. Great staff to help decide what to do and how to get places for day trips
The one door on the bathroom broke and the staff started fixing it immediately. Staff was very helpful and eager to please and tried very hard with a language barrier with success. Comfy rooms and beds, secure beds with good steps. Great kitchen. Great location, right off of the main street, Strata Nuova with all the Unesco world heritage site palaces. No locks on the bedroom doors but good, big lockers. Were accommodating with special requests.
There were only two toilets/showers. There was always a que in the morning and night. There was a third bathroom but weren't allow you to use because there was laundry in there which was really frustrating when you couldn't wen use the toilet and had a huge wait. The kitchen was very small for eating and preparing. There were also very few dishes and cooking implements. The lockers were very frail, wouldn't fit a normal lock and were plastic lock pieces so could be broken easy. Great location.
Hostel very run down. Lacked basic safety precautions such a locks on doors and lockers. Showers were broken and no shower curtain to keep things from getting wet, and very cold and couldn't adjust temp because non broken. Beds comfortable but duvets were ripped an unequal with some being fluffy and others like a sheet. There was a biscuit under the bed when new room. Curtain was not functional so basically no curtain, just a crappy cloth. Dying oven. Was warm at times. Needs a bit of TLC
Beds were very uncomfortable, at least in the twin room. Woke up with back pain because the beds are so sunken in the middle. Rooms were warm. Bathrooms and showers were okay. Great idea for the kitchen with multiple stations. Staff was helpful. Hostel was out of the centre, as these hostels usually are, but easy to find and in a quiet area. Nice lounge area with a tv. No lockers, but were in a twin room. Baggage storage was just an open space in the basement.
Bathrooms were few and far from rooms. Felt run down. Breakfast was a bit confusing because its in the same area as a cafe. I can imagine people get confused and get stuff from the cafe thinking its included. Decent location, easy to find good for bus access to airpot and walking distance to city centre. It was thankfully warm. Staff was helpful
The hostel let in a lot of noise which I expected, but I was still naive to what the area was like. The people that joined my room were incredibly rude and loud so it skewed my perception of this hostel a bit. Great kitchen and hang out area. Basic breakfast of just toast and coffee/tea. Basic rooms felt a bit run down. The lockers under the bed didn't even have anything to lock with or attach it to, they were badly broken and looked like it had been that way a long time with not being fixed
Neat building and little info plaques in the house.. The room was really cold overnight (no heater in the room), and the shower wasn't that warm so took a long time to warm up at the end of the day, luckily had lots of bed clothes. Nice kitchen and breakfast, although it's just a continental breakfast and not sure why it wouldn't go a little longer as it ends at 9am. Staff was helpful. Was fairly quiet the day we went. Nice kitchen.
Booked early for the hostel, then only when emailed about time of arrival did I find out that there was an upper 'age limit', although nothing when booking, as I brought my parents. Kind of rude reply to my enquire by email, and asked to be far from bar, but got put in a crappy room right beside bar, of which there were only two (spite?). We were nicely moved once we asked though to a much nicer room with more space and reading lights. Great breakfast, nice kitchen and bar area.
The hostel was under construction while we were there, and there was no communcation of this. We arrived on a Friday and the hostel was closed for a few days so no one was there to let us in before 1pm so we could leave our bags before checking in so that we could explore as we arrived in the morning. Luckily the info centre let us keep them there because they knew the hostel was closed. There was no reduced price although many inconveniences of construction (no curtains or reading light).
Great staff, comfortable and roomy rooms with nice bathrooms. Just bread and pastries for breakfast, with great coffee. No toaster. Fruit available. Flexible breakfast time. Really close to the centre and in a quite area.

Great common area and kitchen. Rooms were spacious and comfortable, with a great beside table/locker and light. Easy to get places from this location, nearby supermarket. Staff were great, really helpful to any concerns or questions, had good tips and suggestions.
The location was awesome. The showers were pretty run down, they were leaky and you had to hold the, sometime falling apart shower head up, although it had a broken stand. Kitchen and breakfast was decent. The staff was all so amazing and enthusiastic. You could tell they all loved Barcelona. Great tips were given about what to do, where to go, where to eat and how to get there.

The location was okay. It was easily accessible by metro it was just the last stop, but you could still get to downtown in decent time, you just have to plan accordingly. It was a bit loud at night being by the highway, and we wanted to have the window open because the hostel was over heated. The breakfast was expensive. We only had one unhelpful guy at the desk, the other staff were fine.
