Stayed here for 3 nights and wasn't impressed. Check in was slow and they charge you 7% if you use your card to pay. the location is great though, just a short walk to las ramblas. I was in a 6 bed dorm and it was very tight. The bathrooms were tiny with absolutely no security or privacy. The door... More

Booked a 6 bed dorm, get there and they had overbooked, we booked 2 months in advance. Someone comes in our room after first night and tells us we have to move into another room, it's a tiny 6 bed dorm with a shared bathroom. And we were even given the wrong key cards.

Staying in a 6 bed dorm is always going to be a little squeezy but these rooms were extremely tiny with little space for your luggage. The sharing of one bathroom also took a little time to get used to but overall the beds were comfy, bathrooms kept constantly clean and the reception were always smiling and willing to help.

Be sound hostel was our second hostel in the area and was a much better choice than the first (be dream). It's very much central and in walking distance to a lot of great things minus the beach.. You have to bus it there or rent a bike.. Either is good but the bike more enjoyable for us as there... More

This was the first hostel we stayed in, was quite impressed. Always clean! They provide towels and wash them if you need. Great breakfast, awesome location!! The only thing is the wifi! We were in the furthest room (205) and it drops out all the time! Only ever have 1 bar!!

unfortunatley this Hostel wasn't too good, the toilet's weren't that clean and the rooms wre very basic. The staff weren't exactly friendly and there was nowhere to meet other people. However the location was incredibly good and did the job it was supposed to do .

This is my first ever negative review, that is how angry I am. The rooms were pretty packed full, but that is ok. I have dealt with that before. Lockers at were least ok. No bar whatsover, no party or even friendly vibe, staff were not even slightly friendly. They say free wifi but they make you sign into facebook... More

As always when I pass from Barcelona I stay in this hostel, it is very cool and always with some activities organized by the hostel! Also the location is perfect, near the rambles and the putas that said me every night compliments, perfect if you wanna increase your self-esteem!

Based on some reviews I read I was unsure about this hostel but it was a lot better than I was expecting. Loved the rooftop terrace and it had a good common room which were very sociable. Noise was not an issue at nights. Dislikes were how narrow our room was, no extra shower door (no privacy while showering) and... More
