Whilst Coroleuhouse-BCN is a little out of the way with regards to the city centre and beaches, it is an easy walk from St Andreu which is on a well serviced metro line. Jose Maria is an absolute pleasure to deal with, quite helpful and from the moment you step through the door you sense a level of home in the place.
Easily one of the best hostels I have stayed in whilst around London; certainly dwarves other more commercial brands. Pub downstairs is a very chilled area, wifi is consistent throughout the hostel, the place is easily accessible with buses and two tube lines within reasonable distance. Staff were consistently helpful, friendly and willing to have a chat. Very secure building, clean bathrooms and working showers as well as private garden. Will definitely return to Monkeys in the Trees!

This hostel has great potential to be a prime place tucked awa y in the heart of the city - unfortunately it is poorly maintained and staffed. While the members of staff were generally pleasant, they didn't seem to want to be there and this reflected on the level of work put into facilities and upkeep of the place. Wifi didn't go further than the common rooms and there aren't enough lockers for every guest. Beds were average. Other local hostels charge the same or less and are better value.
Very easy to get to and well placed in the old port / old Montreal area. Staff are friendly, helpful and the hostel is decently equipped.
