For a cheap place to stay, this is perfect, although there are a lot of pick pockets on the street about one minute walk away from the hostel, it's great value for what you pay, you get breakfast, lunch and dinner included in the price, great bar staff too

3rd time staying here and never disappointed. Great location. Clean. Fun. Decent beds. Excellent security and lockers Free breakfast and (basic) dinner for the price you pay per night is amazing. Having no plug points in the room is new and annoying.

It has a very youthful feel to it. It is clean, simple and comfortable. The sitting area is quite nice with cool seating and a pool table. In terms of location, it is right in the city center with ample of choices to eat and visit.

Location is amazing! A lot of reviews are saying its the kind of hostel that you have to go out clubbing every single night , I disagree I stayed here for 2 weeks and some nights would just have a drink on the upstairs balcony and then crash. The hostel is very clean and the beds are comfy. Yes there... More

My boyfriend & I only stayed one night after a long day of travel. We stayed in a room w/ 4 beds. It was super basic, but clean and we only had one other roommate. We just needed a place to crash before heading on our way so it did the job. Lots of activity as it was a Saturday... More

This hostel should be for people who want to stay somewhere when they are travelling and want to go out every night, otherwise it's not the place for you. Having read the reviews before I went on a boys holiday I was a bit worried but the rooms and bathrooms, although basic, are fine to stay in and worth the... More

Location is perfect - couldn't get much more central. Rooms and bathrooms are clean and decent. I stayed in a room overlooking Plaza Mayor which was really cool. Some people's lockers were completely broken and unusable or really difficult to lock. NO PLUG SOCKETS IN THE ROOMS. You have to hand in phones or whatever else you want charged at... More

As a solo traveler this hostel was perfect for me! I met lots of new friends who I went out with every night. The bar crawl is good because when you come back it's happy hour so perfect to get drunk before heading to one of the clubs. It's not the cleanest place and the staff aren't nice or friendly...

I strongly recommend for people to stay else where whilst in Barcelona. Although this hostel is advertised as one of Europe's premier party hostels, it is far from it. If your idea of partying is drinking expensive, low quality beer and sangria whilst hanging out in a dingy, attempted night club, common area/bar then by all means stay there. But... More

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
