When I picked Kabul as my hostel in Barcelona I was a little concerned because I had already read some bad reviews, but after my stay there, I think that those nas reviews were absolutely wrong. It is a safe, nice hostel, clean and with a good atmosphere to know other travelers

This hostel has the potential to be an excellent party hostel. Decent facilities and located conveniently off La Rambla. HOWEVER, the staff should be force fed lessons in hospitality. Very rude, lazy, and asking for help is akin to getting blood out of a stone. Wake up Kabul.

Stayed at Kabul with a group of 7 and had a pretty good time. We opted for a 10 bed dorm (the only one we could book all 7 of us into) which was a little disappointing for the amount we paid. The room was cramped and outdated but did have a fantastic view of the square the hostel is... More

We spent 5 nights here in July in an 8 bed mixed dorm. - The staff were some of the rudest people I have ever come by, especially the blonde girl who was always at reception. - Our dorm had no power outlets for charging. On the back of the door it was stated that 'due to theft they removed... More

This hostel was awful. Cramped into a dorm with 10 beds was quite inhumane. The air conditioning did not work and the room was like a sweat box. The window was tiny and had to be open otherwise there could of potentially been a fatality through heat stroke. With the window open, there was no chance of any sleep due... More

The location of the hostel was amazing as it was just off La rambla. So it was close to bars and restaurants. You could walk to the beach in 20-30 minutes as well as the most "famous" clubs. The room was good, pretty standard but clean and the bathrooms were also good. It was way too cold at night, however... More

Great location right on Plaza Reiel, near some amazing architecture and La Rambla, Had a very cool rooftop bar and 1 euro beers out of a vending machine. Had free breakfast and dinner. stayed in a large room with a great view of the plaza, met some amazing people and had a great time.
