My husband and I stayed here during our honeymoon and we had an amazing time. The hostel was absolutely spotless and Paolo and Mariana who work on the front desk are amongst the most helpful, lovely people you could ever hope to meet. The hostel is also in a great location, close to the Metro, places to eat/drink and shops.... More

Stayed at this hostel in July 2014 and we did have an alright time but we just felt the room was rather small and musty, it had no window to the outside, the hostel location is not really near the city centre, there is a metro which is up the street which will take you into the centre in about...

Extraordinary friendly, knowledgeable and multi-lingual staff. Immaculately clean and comfortable with a fabulous patio to sit under the sun awnings and catch the breeze after a day of walking the city. Minutes walk from the Barri Gothic and Sagrada Familia. Just walk south down down Gironda and find the Plaza Sant Pedro and you'll probably never get so lost you... More

It is more like a hotel than hostel, therefore not as good as an atmosphere for socializing but perfect for when you're tired. Peacful, spacious place to stay. We got a free upgrade due to cancellation. Staff are always available and perfect for couples! Free mini breakfast too which is useful. No bar, though. Close to shops etc. Noisy if... More
