    The location of the hostel was the best. 1 min from La rambla street, in front of the hostel there is a supermarket that you can buy everything in very good prices.The rooms were cleaned every morning.There was a kitchen that you can cook and eat there. Clean and cozy reception-lobby with tables for eating and couches. The best part was the receptionists who were extremely helpful and friendly. Special thanks to Raja and Gabriele who made our stay even better!!!

    The rooms are horrible, small, the beds sounds a lot, and there is no space basically for anything. The shower is also super small and uncomfortable. The place looks like an abandoned building. The only good thing is the staff which is super friendly and helpful. Try to avoid this hostel or use it in emergency case.

    Quite disappointed! Only use this hostel if you want a VERY basic place to stay in a good location. PROS: very central, Clean (the staff were constantly cleaning). CONS: kitchen was small & lacked basics (cups, mugs, kettle & plates.) I had to drink coffee out of a plastic bowl! beds were uncomfortable & wobbly. No atmosphere & no organised events to help people get to know each other. Bathroom was not nice. Toilets so small when I sat down my knees touched the door! Wasn’t worth the money!

    Had to wait 15 mins to check in as staff were having a squabble. Fell over in the shower there was > 1 meter of grime built up. 1 powerpoint in a rm for 10 pple. Receptionist double booked me in same bed as another girl. Saw her stuff on the bed, went and told him and he said she had swapped because she is overweight?? He came upstairs to change the sheets and yelled WHERE IS SHE. How embarrassing. Not sure how you can blame your incompetency on some rando girls weight but ok.

    Pretty basic. You get a bed and that’s about it. There isn’t a great deal wrong with it besides the fact that the rooms aren’t properly air-conditioned and the kitchen is ill equipped. There isn’t really a decent area to socialise either. The location is about as good as you can get in Barcelona though, right off Las Rambles. All things considered it isn’t especially bad but i’ve stayed in much better hostels for less money.

    I was stranded in Barcelona for the night and just wanted a cheap bed to sleep in. I was immediately put off by the state and smell of the lobby, check in, hang out and kitchen area. It looks run down and the kitchen was an absolute mess, despite signs hanging everywhere asking guests to care for the space... they didn't. luckily the beds and toilets were cleanish. Just to put it into perspective, I paid only 2€ more for the best hostel I have ever stayed in in Madrid.
