Guests must always inform us of their arrival time in order for the hostel to arrange their check-in. A VALID picture ID will be required to check-in
NORMAL CHECK IN: 1:00 pm to 10:00 pm (if you arrive after 10 pm, you must request a "late check-in", read conditions please)
CHECK OUT: 10.30 am
Out of those hours, you may leave your luggage in our storage room, free of charge, while you go out to explore the city.
LATE CHECK-IN CONDITIONS (for arrivals after 10 pm):
Non-refundable rates: If you have booked a "non-refundable rate" you only need to inform us of your approximate arrival time, and we will coordinate your check-in. No problem.
Deposit-Only rates: As for the rest of the reservations, if guests arrive after 10 pm, they must request a "late-check-in service". Our hostel usually doesn’t charge late-check-in fees, however, the cost of the first 2 nights will be charged in order to arrange a late-check-in (which means that we will maintain all of the beds reserved and have someone waiting until the next day at 9 am in case guests have experienced any delays). If the guests don't show up by the next morning, the reservation will be cancelled and the money won't be reimbursed.
AGE LIMIT FOR SHARED DORMS: Being a 'Youth Hostel', our shared mixed rooms are meant to be 'student dorms'. For that reason, children under 7 or guests over 45 years must book private rooms or entire dorms (all beds in a shared dorm). Please, contact us immediately if this concerns you, so that we can assist you.
ATTENTION: We can't accept Bachelor Parties as we are NOT A PARTY HOSTEL.
BARCELONA TOURIST TAX: The local Government charges a Tourist tax to all visitors over 15 years old. This tax will be calculated upon arrival according to city regulations.

Non-Refundable rates:
This option requires the full cost of the stay to be paid in advance in order to complete the booking process and confirm the reservation. This rate is cheaper, but it cannot be cancelled or modified (consequently, paid amounts cannot be reimbursed).
Deposit-Only rates:
These reservations can be cancelled (or modified) until 5 full days before the due arrival date (for example, if your reservation is due for the 10th of July, you will be able to freely cancel or modify the reservation until the 4th at 11:59 pm). No modifications or cancellations will be accepted free of charge after that time.
Modifications: They will be subject to our availability and minimum stay requirements. Please note that there will be no refunds in the event of early check-outs.
In any case, if you need to modify or cancel your reservation, please do NOT wait until the last minute because it will be impossible for us to help you, as the more we approach the due arrival date, the less chances there will be of re-selling your cancelled nights.
We are a small hostel, and we cannot afford having empty beds.
Important: If you are arriving after 10pm, make sure to request the late-check-in service because all of the reservations that haven't arrived by that time will be considered a no-show and can be cancelled by the hostel.
Deposits: Hostels cannot reimburse the deposits paid online since they are kept by the booking companies chosen by the guest. If you have any inquiries about this, you should contact the booking company.
Credit cards: According to the booking conditions, a valid credit card is required in order to maintain the beds reserved. In the event the provided credit card doesn't work, the reservation can be cancelled by the hostel as there is no guarantee that the reservation will be honored.

    Undoubtedly the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. Staff are super friendly, accommodating and they make you feel comfortable and welcome for the duration of your visit and beyond. Even though it’s not a party hostel, this doesn’t mean you will be bored here as every week they run activities such as a free meal and flamenco night for all their guests. I traveled alone here and I never once felt isolated, nor did I feel like I was at a hostel - I felt like I was at home! 11/10 hostel.

    Guests were very helpful and welcoming to a first-time Euro traveler. A positive, clean, and family-friendly atmosphere. They are very inclusive of all comers. They were willing to make an exception to the age rule in the mixed dorms in my case. My only criticism is that they told me they don't allow drugs or alcohol but there was drinking allowed on the terrace. Perhaps I misunderstood. Despite that, I would recommend.

    First hostel experience, and it was awesome! The staff was helpful and inviting. They made sure everyone was comfortable and had all the information about the city. They had an environment of respect for everyone and I felt perfectly comfortable and safe the whole time. Friday night homecooked dinner and sangria was AMAZING! I would absolutely stay here again, hands down!

    I had a great stay. The location is ideal, close to subway and Gaudi spots. The staff is very friendly and welcoming, and the place is clean and very secure. They also do excursions during the week such as seeing the Magic Fountain and flamenco dancing. Would definitely recommend.

    Great location and a great hostel overall. We were in a private room with a shared bathroom which was extremely clean. We only had to wait for the shower once, which we thought was very good. Fridge and kitchen area was handy, we loved being able to have cold water on hand waiting for us after a big day in the sun. Rooms were tidy and good size, big enough for two people to move around in. Easy and friend check in and check out with the staff, very appreciative organs or advice and tips

    This is the best hostel we have ever stayed in. The staff are so friendly and always happy to help. It is very close to Passeig de Gracia station so easy to access airport and town. The rooms were clean + hostel felt very secure. The terrace was beautiful and there was a real family atmosphere. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed. The hostel organises flamenco etc + walking tours. We went to both which were brill. Bathrooms were modern and clean. We’d love to stay again. Thank you

    Great hostel. We had a private room and it felt like staying in our own apartment. Not a party hostel but centrally located and walking distance from all the main attractions. The staff were very friendly and always helpful and accommodating. Thanks for having us!
