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: 13:00 to 24:00 (if you arrive after midnight, you must request a 'late check-in', read conditions please)
CHECK OUT: 10.30 am
LATE CHECK-IN CONDITIONS (for arrivals after midnight): Our reception is open until midnight. If guests arrive after midnight the hostel will charge them 25,00€ for the late check-in.
LUGGAGE STORAGE: If guests arrive at the hostel before the normal check-in time (1 pm), they can leave their belongings in our luggage storage after 9:00 am. The cost of this service is 5€. If guests want, they can also leave their luggage in our storage after the check-out time (10:30 am) until 9:00 pm. The cost for this service is 5€.
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 midnight, 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.

    This hostel is just absolutely wonderful – clean, cosy and very well located. It felt like staying at the best friend’s place, because the host and his family are just amazing – helpful, cheerful and happy people. They really love what they do, and you can feel it in every thought throug detail in the common area as well as in the rooms. Thank you for my great stay and hope to come back again!

    As a female traveller on my own, I wanted somewhere peaceful, safe and friendly to stay and this hostel gave me all of that. The staff are so friendly and it was a really lovely place to hang out in after a day exploring the city. It really is one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed.

    Comfortable beds, even if the female dorm was a bit cramped when full. Showers were also good and the bathrooms were always clean when I used them. Staff was really nice and attentive, especially when I arrived and was taken through a map of Barcelona with suggestions of what to see, where to go and where to eat. Great atmosphere for people who just want to relax after a day and night of sightseeing.

    Barcelona Central Garden was perhaps my favorite hostel I've ever stayed in (and I've stayed in hostels around the world). The staff were super friendly, helpful, and accommodating. They were able to answer all questions about local attractions and transportation, and had so many great recommendations for restaurants. Even though there were lockers and other places to store my belongings, I felt so secure in the hostel that I didn't need to use them. And all of the people I met were amazing!
