    Great hostel in a great location. Close to a lot of the big things to see. Very nice building and cozy private beds in the dorms. Good atmosphere and free (usually vegetarian) dinners every night. Absolutely recommend:)

    I’ve stayed at lot of hostels in Western Europe and this is one of my favorites! Bruno, Diego, Vera, Santi, Daniel, Darwin, Lucia, Samuel and all the other volunteers make this place so fun and welcoming. There is free dinner every night (most of the time vegan!) and also an outing to a bar and club (which you get in free w/ hostel). I loved the night we learned salsa/bachata! The curtains for the beds are so great, and facilities are always clean. Highly recommend Black Swan :)

    Excellent hostel. I'm surprised how they manage to do all the logistics to keep their guests happy. Free dinners, outings, activities. Great when traveling solo. Volunteers are definitely the heart of the hostel. I'll include some names but all were great. Darwin, Diego, Bruno, Lucija, Daniel. We had a great time talking and they were really helpful. We even swam in the cold sea haha. A must do in winter time. Anyways. If you are in Barcelona don't miss this hostel 👍

    I loved staying here and extended my 4 days to a week. I have never been in a place so clean. The free dinners every night was a great bonus. The friendly staff was the best part, especially enjoyed talking with Agustín. Only thing not to my liking was my room was colder than I liked and someone, I think the maid, kept opening the window.

    Made to feel at home by all the volenteers, part of the black swan family. Being a returning guest after 3 years, I still love this hostel.

    The best thing about Black Swan is the free dinner every evening! The staff are also very friendly and helpful. One thing I would say is that the common spaces are often busy and it's hard to find a quiet space to relax. The location is great though and there are lots of nice places to eat nearby. I'd definitely stay here again if I went back to Barcelona!

    The perfect hostel if you are solo-travelling and wanting to meet people. I have never been anywhere with such a sociable and communal atmosphere - it is clear that the staff work hard to maintain this culture and it is very appreciated. A very cheap price, good quality facilities, free activities and free dinner every night. Only thing is that it is quite a gendered space; no gender-neutral facilities, but this is not unusual for a hostel.
