Hostelworld says

Nestled at the base of Montjuic, HelloBCN Hostel has been a popular spot for travellers coming to Barcelona since it opened its doors in 2006. With an array of activities organised for guests (pub crawl, group dinners, beer pong), and the friendly disposition of the staff you’ll feel at home right away. The hostel is located just minutes from the Paral·lel metro station giving easy access to all of Barcelona’s top attractions, and it’s within walking distance of Port Vell, La Rambla, and the Gothic Quatre. We particularly like their unusual electronic bracelet keys because they’re difficult to lose or steal.

For a fun and comfortable place to stay during your visit to Barcelona, HelloBCN Hostel is the perfect choice!

Start your day right with our simple yet delicious breakfast before heading out on an amazing free walking tour. After a full day of exploring Barcelona, come back and join us for dinner, drinks and games in the common area, and if your energy levels are still high head out for a night on the town with the Party Animals! They know where the party’s at! Then end your day with a good night sleep in one of our comfy beds!

Our friendly staff are available 24 hours to help you out and give you tips on the best things to see and do in Barcelona.

HelloBCN Hostel is located in the up-and-coming neighbourhood of Poble-sec, but still less than 1 km from the famous pedestrian street, Las Ramblas and the popular square, La Plaza Reial full of bars, restaurants and nightclubs. In the heart of Poble-sec, and just a short walk from the hostel is Calle Blai (Blai Street), which has become famous among young people for its offer of excellent tapas at affordable prices. There are also plenty of local supermarkets and specialty food shops (e.g. greengrocers, bakeries) nearby to help you stay within your budget.

Just two minutes' walk to the metro/ bus stop (Paral.lel), the hostel offers easy access to all of Barcelona top tourist attractions including La Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, Casa Batllo, La Pedrera, Montjuic (from which you can enjoy the panoramic views of Barcelona or just chill out in the magical bar at the Migdia lookout), and of course the beach!

In the hostel you will find the most advanced technology in security, with electronic keys giving you 24 hour access to the hostel, 24 hour reception and security cameras. We also provide you with other amazing services such as free wifi, a bar, a communal kitchen and lounge area, table tennis and much more!
