Hostelworld says

Safestay Gothic is in Ciutat Vella district, very near Museu Picasso, Jaume I metro stop and Barcelona Cathedral, and about 15 minutes' walk to the beach, the aquarium and the Maremàgnum. We like their 'cubicle' style of bunk beds which create a little personal space in large dorm rooms, with privacy curtains, reading lights and power sockets. Many of our guests say they also appreciate the breakfast and the hostel's rooftop terrace.

Barcelona is a city of charming streets, busy with people and full of life. The old town, comprising the Gothic quarter, the Rivera and Raval districts, is famed for its historical monuments, narrow streets and bohemian atmosphere. The city also has the biggest selection of modernist architecture; most of these buildings are in the Eixample district which constitutes a unique model of European urban planning.

Barcelona is the only European capital with over four kilometres of beaches where you can enjoy the most modern amenities and these beaches are not far from Barcelona's historical landmarks, and they have opened up our modern and cosmopolitan city to the sea.

The Safestay Gothic is one of the Safestay Hostels all around Europe.

Persons under the age of 18 are only allowed to stay in private rooms or dormitory rooms that are booked for use of one family or group of persons, and can't share dormitory rooms with other guests. People under 18 years of age must travel with their parents or legal tutor. View House Rules

    Very friendly people, organized, and perfect localization. I just want to add that would be nice if the rooms had air conditioner.

    I really really appreciated the privacy curtains around each (bunked) bed. Those were a great addition to the room. The bed and bathroom were mostly clean, although I got bitten by some sort of bug/spider repeatedly in my bed.

    It was a clean place at a great location with friendly staff. I understand the high rate was due to the high season so I was not complaining about it. Overall was satisfactory 👍

    Great hostel! Virtually no social atmosphere though so I wouldn’t recommend for solo travelers! Other than that everything was perfect

    Everything went smooth with my stay. Only complaint would be the WiFi. Couldn’t get on at all the first day due to the web page not working correctly. Talked to one other guest that had this issue. The rest of my stay it worked smoothly. I’d come back.

    Really good experience here! Beds were clean, showers were a bit small but honestly nothing to complain about. Air con was broken for a while in our room so temperature varied a bit. Had no problem with bed bugs or anything like that. Location is amazing really hard to find something better thats this central to everything!

    The good parts about this hostel: 1) It is a pretty good location. You can walk to lots of attractions and there’s also a metro stop a 2 minute walk from the hostel The not so good parts: 1) BED BUGS (205 B1+2) 2)The atmosphere of the whole place was by far the worst I have stayed in. No drinking on site=people will not hang around the hostel on a night. 3) The WiFi is terrible! You constantly have to keep signing up to it for it to work

    If you are a young female traveler do not stay here! This place feels extremely unsafe and their dorms are so full you can barely move around. Wouldn’t recommend

    DO NOT STAY HERE!!! This hostel is not safe and has very bad security. We stayed here for one night and left the next day because our friend had her phone stolen TWO FEET from the door. The security guard told us this happens often and that people will stand outside the hostel at night and target the people staying there. We met a boy about 5'9 and roughly 160 lbs who said that 7 guys held him down outside the hostel and took all of his belongings. I could go on but it is NOT SAFE!!!
