I was looking for a good time, just as anyone else in Barcelona would. Kabul was supposedly the "party hostel" but after staying there for 4 nights, I will never go back. The staff is unfriendly and rude and not helpful whatsoever... the rooms and living style is dirty and cramped. I actually had two friends leave the hostel and... More

I was with my cousin in this awesome hostel. Perfect location (on the Ramblas, 15 mn de la plage), very clean (what was not easy, considering they were practily full at the time, with all this young people - and sometimes not that educated people), good breakfest (muffin, cereals, bread, milk, coffee), nice staff also.

Kabul was great place to stay for a weekend in Barcelona. The price is good for travellers on a budget. The location is also perfect-5 mins from metro, in the main street, close to shops and hundreds of restaurants etc. they throw really good parties and the free breakfast and dinner is really good. Rooms and bathrooms are both clean.... More

Had an incredible weekend in Kabul. The hostel was okay, clean enough with friendly staff. However, on an evening the hostel run regular bar crawls which take you round the old town of Barcelona and help you party for cheap before returning for their happy hour at midnight. We had a great couple nights being shown round the city and... More

I've stayed here a couple of times and it is without doubt the best location of any hostel in Barcelona. It'c clean, the staff are helpful and friendly and the rooms are good too. There's a rooftop are to chill out, drink and have a few smokes. Great spot and I can't wait to go back.

Average hostel, nice for a couple of days. It is close to everything but I think they can fix some things. Anyway, you get what you are paying for. The breakfast is included what is a plus. Good common room.

Heard great things about this being one of the best party hostels in Europe, and it lived up to it's name. Barcelona is a fantastic city, and due to how much fun I was having in this hostel - I got to see absolutely none of the city. Great atmosphere, location and includes a free dinner.

Great location, right next to the ramblas. Great vibe for parties. There's a really good bar and you get discounts for clubs. Accomodations are ok. The staff is also nice. Not the best place to choose if you want quiet or a good night sleep.

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.
