    Terrific ambiance. I took advantage of all the group activities organized by the Black Swan. I think the facilitators' names were Francesca (from Italy), Josie (from Austria), and Herem (from Turkey). They made my experience in Barcelona really enjoyable. I'd recommend this place in a heartbeat.

    My first ever stay at a hostel and won't be my last. I've always wanted to go traveling but have never had the courage to go by myself. The team at the Black Swan were very friendly and made the atmosphere at the hostel friendly which meant everyone mixed. I'm now planning my first solo trip and I'd urge anyone thinking of somewhere to stay in Barcelona to seriously consider The Black Swan. They have pub crawls, paella nights and salsa dance lessons. I will be back.

    I LOVED staying at Black Swan. Four nights a week there is free dinner and the other three nights Chef Bobby comes to teach and cook paella for 5€ each. Everyday there is free breakfast which is just cereal but still free! Very good location, close to two metro stations and a walk to La Rambla. Events going on every day and every night with wonderful staff who make sure you will have a blast! Highly recommend! Shout out to Emma for the great nights out with special drink deals! 😊

    Strongly recommend for solo travellers looking for a social environment. Great location and atmosphere for meeting others & partying. Free pub crawl every night of the week is the best thanks to Francesca, Ramiro, Ikaram, & Emma.

    This hostel is perfectly situated and the beds are comfy and the rooms are massive! The only downside is the staff. Most of them were quite rude and didn’t want to help for anything. Also, don’t base your choice on the fact that they have free breakfast because it’s orange juice and cereals, nothing more. Overall great stay but attitude could be improved.

    Convenient location, just a few mins walk from Arc Triomf and 10-15 mins to the Gothic Quarter. Free breakfast was ok (coffee, juice, cereal). Staff was very helpful with local. Strongly advise the Gaudí Free Walking tour, very informative. Overall a nice stay at Black Swan and would recommend to others.
