    Great place to stay. Pretty much in the centre of Barcelona about 10 minutes from some of the main streets by foot. Really great staff and a nice chilled out vibe.

    The hostel was quiet and relaxed. It was almost a little too quiet! Maybe because communal space is quite limited, it was a bit difficult to socialise, so if you're a lone traveller expect to make a bit of effort to chat to people! However the staff were all chatty, friendly and full of advice. The building is beautiful, very close to La Rambla and Plaça Catalunya, and very clean. I would definitely recommend this hostel to others.

    Good location. Metro close and easy walk to La Rambla. Security good. Have to walk by the reception to get to the bathrooms. Narrow area and can be crowded if someone checking in/out. No eating or drink in the rooms ?!? No alcohol sold or allowed in the hostel, really?

    Nice hostel less than 5 mins walking to La Rambla. The 8bed dorm was big enough but bed and pillow was a bit too soft for me, very good cleaning and people working there are nice, it’s not a party hostel so is good if you’re looking for a place to chill after a long day. I would recommend it!

    Great location. Dorms are pretty cramped (or at least the one I was in was) and the facilities are small and basic. It was €120 per night for the weekend that I was there which was incredibly expensive!! But all hostels were also very expensive that weekend. Staff were really really great and gave a really full run down of things to see and places to go, they were great. Atmosphere is ok.

    Don’t bother staying here- The ENTIRE HOSTEL shared 3 toilets and 2 or 3 showers- it was SO crowded. The doors don’t lock or even click shut in the rooms- anyone can come in. The lockers are in the front of the hostel- and my assigned locker didn’t open. So security was bad, I had to leave everything out with no protection. Very upset that this was €27 a night and had basically no redeeming qualities besides the nice receptionist & the restaurants around the hostel.
