    The black swan was a fantastic stay - from location to comfort and everything in between, it was a dream. The staff was also absolutely brilliant, offering complete assistance and dinners every night. Laura, who works the front desk, was one of the kindest (and happiest!) people I was lucky enough to meet in Barcelona. She was always ready to answer all questions, offer help or directions, and share recommendations for food, tourist activities, and anything else you could need.

    A great place to stay for some nights in Barcelona. It’s the best hostel I have ever been to. I really enjoyed the place, located in a good area,close to the city center and other attractions. Everything was very clean and tidy. Moreover the staff was amazing, they organize every night different activities for everyone. Laura from the reception is the best 😍😊

    Was super nervous about choosing which hostel to book as I was a solo traveller and wanted a clean and social hostel but the Black Swan was definitely the right choice! Free walking tours introduced me to other solo travellers who I had the best time with! Tours also SUPER informative and interesting! !! Free dinners !! Like…yessss save a fortune queens & kingzzzz !!! Bar crawls on the daily with free entry to the clubs and we also attended a super fun FREE salsa class?! 10/10 yes

    Loved my stay here. Really good social environment. It was also the first place I’ve ever seen offer free group dinners at night which was a great way to save money and meet other travellers. Most importantly they had a great staff! All the volunteers were super friendly and Laura was the best receptionist ever! She treated me like an old friend from our first conversation and she really wanted me to have the best stay possible. Don’t let her go!

    I met so many fun people at Black Swan and it's a good location- the bathroom was pretty messy most of the time I was there and was out of toilet paper quite often

    Great pub crawl, super fun and super easy to know people. They lack something’s in facilities, like we asked for towels three days in a row and they didn’t have them, but a really great place to be and to start the party

    I had such an amazing stay at the Black Swan Hostel! I met the most amazing friends there thanks to the free guided tours the hostel provides, which led then us to go on and do group things together which was so nice! A really great social hostel if you are a solo traveller and the free dinners they provide are amazing! My locker was quite dirty and the showers and bathrooms are slightly gross but the beds were great and amazing having AC in each room too! I found a few of the staff members to be slightly

    The general experience was ok. In my opinion there should be showers and bathrooms in every floor. In this hostel there are two floors, and showers are on the first floor, and bathrooms on the second floor. If I wanted to shower, I had to go downstairs. Furthermore, some days there is no soap or toilet paper at the bathroom in the evenings. My roommates were a bit messy, but this isn't a hostel problem, so its ok 😊

    Disappointing overall, would stay elsewhere. There are better hostels in barca at this price point. Have stayed in about 10 hostels around Europe this year and this was somehow was the most expensive, yet the least nice
