    Best hostel I've ever stayed in, and I've been to A LOT. every night we have a free dinner where we get to know everyone (super good for solo travelers), and after dinner we start some drinking games and then head out to a bar and to a party (we get in for free and without waiting in line). I want to personally thank Tomer and Bruno for an amazing experience, they made my stay 10x better, would recommend for anyone looking for an amazing location hostel and an easy way to meet new friends!

    The place is very nice, clean and well located. The staff is friendly and they organize a lot of activities for their guests (free tours, dinners, pub crowls). I would definitely choose the place again if I came back in Barcelona.

    The hostel is very nice and the location is just perfect, it is very close to the main sights of Barcelona. I really enjoyed the staying there a few days ago. The stuff was very polite and helpful, especially Ana from Mexico, who was always ready to solve any problem. People like her make the place twice better. I highly recommend this hostel to everyone.

    BEST HOSTEL TO STAY IN BARCELONA OBVIOUSLY! I spent the most beautiful weeks of my trip of two months in this hostel ! Security really great, staff friendly and competent, volunteer incredible. The hostel propose every day bar crawl (bar + club) and little game in the common area. There is also paella cooking, a walk to the bunquers for the sunset, free dinner every day (maybe the most beautiful ambiance ever the free dinner) ! Thank you to Bruno, Diego, Daniel, Tomer, Sédhna, Mattia, Ana,...

    This is my 2nd time staying at Purple Nest. This time I had a room with a view. Great location and enjoyed the spacious kitchen and common area. Nice to have a WC located in each floor. I didn't find any interaction with fellow travelers. I did join the walking tour and pub crawl. I didn't stay long enough to make connections.
