Me and 2 friends stayed at Kabul hostel for 4 nights, 7-11 april so just over the easter break. We stayed in a 22 person dorm. I paid 54 euros for the 4 nights, and a 15 euro deposit which you get back at the end, which I thought was pretty good value for money. The hostel is just off... More

Great hostel but get ready! If you are not a party person it's better you look for another place to stay. They always have something to do with thei guests. Tourism, pub crewl, party, party ,party...and the price include breakfeast, lunch and dinner. Good prices! Love it!

In my room were 8 people. 3 iphones and a wallet were stolen and security didn't do anything. Security is non existent and anyone can walk in. The only positive aspect of this place is how cheap it is. With that being said, you get what you pay for. Beds had stains on them and were itchy. Group of people... More

Talk about location this place is perfect! Breakfast included every morning plus a free dinner if your in quick. This place has a great bar and common area, if you're a solo traveller like me this is a great place to meet people! The place itself is a little grungy but I liked that. The reception staff weren't overly helpful... More

Stayed in Kabul for my first few nights back in Barcelona. It´s inexpensive, you get 3 meals a day and the atmosphere is great, always a party or something happening. I found the staff very helpful, always willing to answer questions you may have or point you in the right direction. All the staff are great craic too, joining in... More

Great central occasion and the bar inside is well stocked and priced, 3 meals are provided in the cost so thats great. It is in no way a quite small hostel, this is a place for party animals and the staff have connections with all the major clubs and organise nights out every night. The Location is stunning and I...

So there are a lot of bad reviews for this hostel and I think a lot are unwarranted. It is not the cleanest hostel I have ever been to and there is non stop parties which are great for solo travelers like me but may not be for everybody. Bottom line is a shared hostel room is 10 dollars a... More

the location is really good, but the living experience is really bad. The room was not clean. It smelled really bad. The ventilation system was poor. The air conditioning system was more likely a heating system. I was lucky, I went there when it was cold. There was no power socket in any rooms. You have to go down to... More

According to my hostelworld profile I have stayed at 45 hostels (just reserved through hostelworld) since 2009, so when I say it is the worst hostel I have ever stayed at it means something. Complete party hostel, but all hostels in Barcelona have somewhat of a party atmosphere, if you are looking to party there is still no reason to... More
