    The beds are pretty terrible and have no curtains. When you turn over the bed makes a horrible sound. There were also mostly older people staying there 50+ so youth hostel is not the best name. But the reception person was nice and the terrace upstairs is beautiful

    I've stayed at 4 hostels around the city with nearly the same price and reviews and this was the most disappointing. It's great if you want somewhere right in the Gothic and just bed, but otherwise it lacks. It smells everywhere. There's no AC. The lockers were tiny. The beds wobbled if your bunk mate moved. There weren't easily accessible outlets to charge your devices. The bathroom didn't seem super clean and showers struggled to get water out. The kitchen is there but not well stocked.

    The toliets and the showers on the 3rd floor are shocking. The balcony door didn't close so I was kept awake by shouting and glass being smashed on the street. I witnessed a domestic fight between a couple in the room, which started by the lady throwing punches, multiple times throughout the night, once around 12 and again at about 4am. The lift to the rooms is a deathtrap. It probably hasnt' been serviced since it was installed.

    This is the third hostel I know in barcelona. I've never experienced anything close as bad as this in my live regarding hostels. All the staff I met, of course I can speak only for the people who were there when I was there, couldn't speak english at all. Sometimes it worked by speaking very very slow, with the help of gestures or even translators. The whole hostel smells like chlorine. No usefull stuff in the kitchen, and what is there you wnat to clean first, no towels though.

    Terrible! Nothing better than "TERRIBLE"! Dirty,noisy,and lack of management. The bed is brocken, shaked, and noisy. The blankets are smelly. People are yelling, singjng, shouting almost all night (until 4:30 am). And two people share one bed(they back at 1:00am)....No one know who they are ? It's very unsafty for the customer... By the way, one floor has only two shower rooms and male & female need to share it. Moreover, the pipes are screaming when people take shower!
