Location of this hostel was convenient. We traveled from airport by direct train to passeig de gracia-barcelona. It was about 15-20min walk to the hostel. The hostel is very clean, offers free breakfast and staff are friendly. Although, the only thing that we dont really like are the size of the room, it was extremely tiny for 2 guests with... More

Awesome hostel! Everything is so well thought! Very beautiful, clean, well located, staff is realy nice and helpful! They're all super young and hang out with the guests in the common area on their breaks, the Gracia neighborhood is charming. I'm sure I will repeat!

The Hostel was simply a great accommodation! The people that worked there were very welcoming, helpful, and patient with the many questions. The price for the hostel for the two nights was not that expensive. clean bed with clean sheets, a blanket, and a pillow. Overall I would recommend this hostel to any of my friend!

I enjoyed the staff and I think the place is good value for money -- it is not a five star hotel, but you will get fair service, food, rooms for the prices they charge. The place offers lunch/dinner for 9 euros which is quite good.

The people working there are so nice and helpful! They organise nights out with the others, so it is super easy to have fun and make new friends! The atmosphere was great, the hostel was clean and well situated, the train from the airport goes there. We had a great time in Barcelona!

We stayed for just two night and arrived around 10 in the night. There was someone on reception to attend us and show us around and make us feel comfortable. The beds were decent and clean bedding was provided. Lockers were good size. Dorm was big and spacious. Overall comfortable stay and very well organised. Staff also provided a lot... More

One of my friends recommend me this hostel and I really enjoyed my stay. I originally booked a bed for 2 night but I extend it for 3 more nights. The breakfast was great and didn't end super early like many of the other hostels I've been to. I recommend this Hostel to everyone!

The stay was very good. The only problem was that the 6-bed room we had was supposed to be open all the time - fortunately, we eventually got the key because there was only our 5-people group. This was apparently the only room that could not be locked, but still it seems a bit unsafe to have such an option.... More
