    Our stay was great. I accidentally slept in and was an hour or so late for check out and even then the staff were really helpful. I'll definitely stay here again. Great location, especially for skaters. Thanks again!

    I found this hostal amazing, the personal care a lot about me, all the questions I asked, I got my answeres and even more information, it was clean, the bed was comfortable, the locker was nice as well. I think that the only "bad" thing is that there is only one bathroom per floor. But the rest was absolutely fine for me, the location is ideal for those who wants to know the center of Barcelona, even it has a metro/tube station close.

    Stayed at the apartments.. a little pricey but you get what you pay for. It was a beautiful apartment with AC, a little kitchen, and a very comfy queen sized bed. Location was a few blocks away from the actual hostel.. amazing location next to everything

    The hostel was close to the Main Street, beach, pretty much everything! Everything was walkable distant. The workers were very helpful with everythings. The walking tours that they provide are fantastic and best part there for free. Lots of markets etc are close to the hostel. Rooms are a good size for what you pay for. Would recommended

    Staff were all very friendly and helpful with all our questions about the city/recommendations etc. Stayed five nights and don’t believe our bedroom was swept or cleaned at all during the stay. Bathrooms were fairly clean. The social atmosphere was very quiet after 8 pm, was not a very lively place to stay. Good location, lots of places to eat nearby and about a 25 min walk to the beach. Would recommend this hostel more for people looking for a low key experience rather than a party hostel.

    Fine hostel for the price. Staff was great and super helpful! Really close to public transportation which made travel easy. BRING YOUR OWN SHEETS. They do not clean theirs - other than that the rooms are clean and the bathrooms well taken care of.

    I do not recommend this hostel to anybody. The rooms are cramped and humid, the air conditioning does not work, and overall the hostel feels like a prison. Dirty washrooms. Many strange guests compared to other hostels. There are many older workers who use this hostel as a temporary stay and I was shocked when I opened the door to my room to find a naked man in his late forties lying sleeping in the cot beside mine. This hostel is cheaper than the others however not worth it. Staff is excellent.
