    Good location but Google maps takes you to 360 hostel which is luckily around the corner. Taxi to train is only $12 euros. Worth not wondering around in the dark !

    Black Swan hostel was a great Hostel to stay and have fun in Barcelona! Lot's of social activities make it really easy to make friends and meet new people. The staff was great, Laura was really welcoming, and they knew how to guide a fantastic pub crawl! I also did the walking tour, and it was such a great way to get to know the city. Definitely recommend staying here if you will be in Barcelona!

    Black Swan hostel was the best hostel I’ve stayed at in Barcelona. The atmosphere is very warm, people want to include and talk to others, and the food was great. The manager Olita was also really rad at making sure people feel welcome and that they have a good time. Not to mention it’s got the best location. Highly recommend if you are in the city!

    I stayed there for a week and I had an amazing time! The staff is super friendly and the hostel offers activities everyday. I wish I participated in some of the walking tours but I could never wake up early enough because the pub crawls were too much fun! Both Miriam and Aaron are awesome pub crawl leaders and a lot of fun to hang out with! Definitely recommend this hostel!

    Fab hostel with great social atmosphere and activities. Only complaint is that they write your room number and name of hostel on your room key so if you lose it it’s not very safe. Recommended for solo travellers, maybe not recommended for people travelling in groups or couples who would rather do their own thing as it can be very pressuring to do the activities/pub crawls especially on weekends.

    The rooms are modern and comfortable and the facilities well equipped. There was always loads going on and lots of friendly travelers to meet. Definitely a good hostel if you are going around solo. The staff were excellent at creating a social atmosphere, Miriam was fantastic, took the time to get to know us and made sure everyone felt really involved in the activities organised by the hostel. This was my first time in Barcelona and I would definitely stay here again.

    Not the cleanest of places there is a cleaner so not sure why everything is still dirty... The showers barely worked the pressure was terrible. Not sure about the woman's toilets but the guys were so small I'm not a big dude and even I struggled to get into the cubicles...

    Great staff can't fix a hostel as flawed as this one. There's no common area except a dark dungeon-like cramped space next to reception. Corn flakes and warm milk is considered an acceptable "free breakfast", but of course no one bothers to wake up for it, killing another social interaction opportunity. The showers are cramped cages. The water cut out at time or was a mere trickle. Rooms are so small people crowd the hallways to pack/unpack. The events were nice, but can't save this place alone.
