    I don’t normally leave reviews, but Sebastian was such an amazing Pub Crawl guide that I had too. We got to know each other during the Pub Crawl, and afterwords, I can confidently say I haven’t had a better guide in all my travels. I saw guides yelling at their guests, or avoiding true interaction with them, but not Seb. He knew how to control the energy of the group, moving them to the next location, while making sure everyone was still having fun. 11/10

    I stayed in a private apartment a few blocks away from the main building. I loved it! Clean and spacious and also very close to all the restaurants and stores I needed. The person at reception actually walked me over to my apartment upon checkin as I was a bit confused after a long day of travelling. Thank you! I would absolutely return to Be Sound. Great property and excellent value.

    This had to be on of my favorite hostels I'd been to during my backpacking trip. Very cheap! I only spent $90 for my room for the five days I was there. Within the first few minutes after checking in, I was instantly friends with some of the others staying there. The nightlife is awesome. If you skateboard, the scene in Barcelona is one of the best in Europe. And this hostel puts you right in the middle of it all, with the beaches still very close by (about a 10-15 minute walk).

    I definitely recommend staying here. The staff is very kind and helpful with sights to see and any questions you might have. The place is clean and each guest is given their own tap card that provides access to the main entrance, their room, and their individual locker. Also, beds are assigned when you arrive, so even groups of 2 won’t be split across the room. They also offer free guided walking tours through Barcelona. I went on the Gothic Tour run by Dan, and absolutely loved it.

    Lovely staff at reception on arrival, were really helpful for helping us get around the city. Beds were really comfy and there were plenty of communal bathrooms. Great little balcony upstairs to chill on the evening. Amazing location being near a metro stop as well as a 10-15 minute walk to nearest places to visit.

    The relation quality-price is not quite good. Is a little expensive for what it offers. Best thing: Sofia at the front desk. Very cheerful and willing to help. Thank you!

    This hostel does not compare with others we have stayed in with the same rating. Overall it sounds like a great location with the security of the keycard locks to get into the building and into your room, but it was very dirty in the bathroom and room and attracts a seedier crowd. It might be worth it to spend more money in Barcelona and have a cleaner, nicer place where you can be more comfortable.
