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.

    I had a perfect stay at this place for 4 nights. It all started with a good email 1 day before arrival with a lot of tips and tricks. The welcome by the staff was awesome. The room was ok. The atmosphere was perfect. They know what travelers want and offer the right stuff. Perfect storage of luggage after checkout. Good kitchen and common room. Very nice "garden". When i'm back in Barcelona i'll definitely stay here again.

    The best hostel ever. Although the small space of the hostel, I found it really great. Wonderful staff and friendly atmosphere during vacation. The hostel is located at the center of the city and near from many historical landmarks and very near from Metro and Bus stations. The staff explained to us everything about the city and gave suggestions about the most popular areas. Don’t miss the wonderful Tuesday of the free dinner and flamingo show with discounted tickets and free drink. I loved it

    This has to be one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. The staff are welcoming from the moment you arrive until you leave. The place is clean and kept that way. Security is not a problem either. As there is staff there 24/7. The staff are very knowledgeable about the city and where and when it's the best times to visit. Transportation is superb which makes the city easy to explore. Good food abounds in the city also. From tapas and all day snacks to a la carte menus. Simply a must visit.

    I had a great experience with this hostel and the staff that work for it. The hostel is in a beautiful location in the heart of a very exciting area of Barcelona. It has a very Mediterranean-Barcelona vibe with balconies and courtyards to spend time in. The facilities are clean, the offer laundry services, and a staff members is available 24/7. They organize a community dinner twice a week, and explore Barcelona together as well. If I had any issues, it would be that my room was a little stuffy.

    Barcelona Central Garden is a fantastic hostel if you are looking for some peace and quiet or a place to recuperate after a long day of site-seeing. The front desk is open 24 hours, the laundry service is inexpensive, and the staff is incredibly friendly. The showers have amazing water pressure and the back yard is a wonderful place to enjoy a beer or read a book. This is NOT a party hostel. They have a curfew and adhere to it which is exactly what I was looking for after a long weekend.

    I stayed here for 4 nights and the hostel is perfect for me. The staff is so friendly and helpful and they explain the barcelone attractions and good restaurant in detail. There are CCTV to ensure the safety of the hostel so i feel so safe to stay here. You can leave your key to the staff when you leave. The location is so close to metro and main attractions e.g.Casa Mila. Easy to meet different traveler. I enjoy the free dinner made by the owner and watch flamenco dance at cheaper price.

    It’s a cute little hostel in the heart of the city. Kinga was really helpful during my check-in. They have organised events like flamenco night (I opted out as I had already made plans). There is a place just next to which has nice variety if cooked meals on decent prices. The only negative things I can mention were the squeaky door, was annoying to wake up every time someone opened it, and the springs in the bunkbeds are getting worn out and they squek whenever you turn. But overall good stay!
