The hostel was alright, but quite a few too many complaints to really be classified as good. First of all, we couldn't pay with card which was annoying. Secondly, the man in charge of checking us in didn't offer to help us carry our heavy suitcases, backpack or extra bags up the stairs, which we thought wasn't the best service.... More

Staying in Albareda was such a great experience! The staff is super friendly! Everyone! They give you tips for your travel, they include you in all the activities, they take you to bars and night clubs, and they have a tapas dinner once a week. The rooms are okay, they are clean and there's enough space for everyone. The hostel... More

I stayed here for four nights and I absolutely loved it. It's in a great location around everything, and the staff was awesome! The bathrooms were always being cleaned in the morning so I never saw the place get dirty. The rooms were a typical hostel room with five other beds that I stayed in, but they had a locker... More

The staff is very welcoming, very nice and helpful. The location is perfect: close to everything ( 5 min walk to la rambla, close to the beach). I highly... More

I was supposed to stay at the hostel for a week, but I had to move about 5 days in. I was leaving to go to Girona for the day, and the owner (who didn't speak great English) explained to me I had to move to another hostel because they were cleaning. I was upset, because it ruined the day... More
