This place is terrible. The website says the hostel has air-conditioning, that's completely incorrect. Half broken fans are used to, well keep the extremely hot air flowing. You can't sleep, it's way to hot, noisy. Find somewhere else. Even the bench outside the hostel is better. This place is a s***hole!

The hostel is very well located, less than 10 minute walk from Sagrada Familia and one block away from the subway station. Also, the staff was really cool. But been there in the summer was a real challenge to sleep, since the room with 8 people had only one fan that barely worked, and there was no ventilation since we... More

This place is a joke. The clerks take forever to check you in (15-20 mins each time). The second day we had to change rooms and check in again. The clerk didn't know how to work the credit card machine. There is no moving air, making everything super stuffy and miserable. The private bathroom was in horrible condition. I would... More

The hostel is very simple, but very clean. Staff is super friendly. The rooms are bug enough, the bathroom is average. Beds were good and clean. The location is amazing. Really close to the Sagrada Família and the metro. If you like walking you can easily walk to barceloneta, El gothic and other parts of the city

It's a simple hostel and would be quite good for the prices offered, but extremely noisy. I stayed 3 nights and I wasn't able to fall asleep before 4AM (2 out of the 3 nights, so eventually I checked out earlier) as there were people slamming doors, chatting loudly, singing and playing loud music. Even the earplugs didn't help at... More

I stayed recently at the Graffiti Hostel, it's a nice place in Barcelona, close to Sagrada Familia and a good point where to start your Catalan Experience. Kevin at the reception is really helpful and kind to give some tourist information and maps to explore. Rooms and toilets where clean and tide. No problem at all during my stay. I... More

Nice hostel with a great Wi-Fi, rooms with interesting graffiti and a wonderful terrace. There may be evenings to communicate with people from different countries, or just relax. Large kitchen, it was very comfortable. Far walk to the center of Barcelona, but the Sagrada close.
