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.

Amazing hostel. Next to the main city points. Great services, people very nice. Free breakfast impressed me. Worth the money. Bar down the stairs was very entertaining. Certainly on of the best hostels in Barcelona.

Basically the room and all bathrooms were totally dirty, toliet paper, hair all over the place. All the staff were unfriendly and acted as if we were doing a favor to them. Totally oppositte to the service received in Saint Jordi which I recommend 100%.

Great location Cheap drinks Practical services Some staff at reception rude cause maybe they r young, they work there probably to pay for their accommodation, no professionalism but its a youth hostel so i guess is okay. Very practical all around. Rooms are good as well as toilets and showers. Cleanliness a lot better than other hostel. Would definitely stay... More

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.

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.
