Excellent location in the centre of Barcelona and a good place to party and meet new people. Not far from bars and clubs. Can get to the beach easy. Clean and tidy hostel. I stayed in the room with 10 people there was enough space in there. Free breakfast and dinner too!! Only downside to this hostel was the staff...... More

Quite possibly some of the rudest staff I have ever come across in my 21 years of existence. The blonde at the reception desk is a b. Check in was a pita she said 12pm and we sat there for an hour waiting for her to tell us. Pretty much ruined our experience before we even got to begin it.... More

Having literally just returned from a 4 night stay here I would definitely recommend it. On arrival check in was slow but had no issues with the staff as previously stated by other reviews. I had booked into an 8 bed dorm and found this to be more than sufficient for the price I paid, locker was large and secure... More

First impressions of the hostel was good. Lots going on with walking tours, bar crawls, drinking games, live music and BBQs. The rooftop bar is a great addition and good for meeting other guests. The room was clean, the lockers were huge which was useful. The showers and toilets were ok but not particularly clean and seemed to always be... More

Excellent hostel. Staff were brilliant. Great location and the atmosphere was the best for a hostel I have ever stayed in. It was clean. The bar on the roof was great €1 a drink during happy hour which seemed to be every hour. If your looking for a hostel in Barcelona this is the stay at.

I'm absolutely baffled why people recommended this place to me. The rooms were incredibly basic, with the sheets being dirty and the entire room and bathrooms not looking like they'd been given a decent clean. The staff gave such a little care about their job that pay via machine had to be installed. If you have to do that rather... More

This hostel is the best that I have stayed at! I backpacked through Europe on my own and I met majority of my friends at this place that I met along the way. I stayed in a mixed 24 bed room. I chose to stay in this room to Meet people. The hostel doesn't have power points in rooms which... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and it has its positives and negatives like most hostels. Positives - first the location couldn't be any better. Second security, the lockers in the room are very secure and operated by a key card system and come evening have a security guard ensuring its only guests entering. Negatives - first the roof top bar... More

The reception at this hostel were incredible rude. I have been travelling Europe for 4 months and not once have I dealt with staff so unhelpful. When I was checking in there was an argument going on between reception and a guest. The guest had been put in a room with more people but charged the price of a room... More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
