Hey so friendly staff, cool people from all over the world, three computers you can use whenever you like, a big social area where they let you drink till about 11pm so you can make friends easy. Some dorms make their own parties its pretty funny. All round a good hostel. When trying to find the place if you see... More

Dirty hostel with the scent of marijuana. On the first day we left our luggage in the locker in the room, after returning locker was open. Lady at the front desk informed us that mistakenly opened the locker... The next day we took a private room with a shared bathroom, which was outside the hostel. Standard was weak, and the... More

I booked a last minute stay at the hostel in December. Having just arrived on my first visit to Barcelona I was just figuring a few things out. Not being experienced in Catalan I was wondering how smoothly I could get by in my far-from-fluent Spanish. No worries though! The guy at the desk spoke perfect English. So much so... More

Great little Hostel rooms were ok for price, bunk beds with locker and little outside area. Very helpful and friendly staff. Good value for money and good location. Just be careful travelling in small numbers at night as 3 of the group were robbed, one at knife point and one guy punched. Very happy overall

We booked a 10 people dorm room for 10 of us and really loved it! Really good beds and big pillows (This is definitely a plus as most hostels give really thin pillows). There were enough toilets for everyone. The breakfast spread was basic but given the price it was really good. (Bread, jams, nutella, 2 different types of cereal,... More

Before coming to Barcelona a friend of mine suggested this hostel and I couldn't have been any happier with this decision! The hostel is located right in the heart of Barcelona therefore making it very practical when exploring the city. The hostel staff were very welcoming and managed to help out with all my questions about the city. The walking... More

This hostel was so central, only a street behind La Rambla. The people working there were so friendly and were willing to help, give advice on what to go and see and they were approachable. The dorms were basic but good, with big lockers to keep your stuff. The wash rooms were big and overall it was a safe environment,... More

My friend and I stayed at Be Mar for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great location, facilities, breakfast, and most of all - great staff. We asked many questions of the hostel staff including dinner recommendations, ideas for what to do during the day, and even help booking our train tickets online. Each of these inquires was handled brilliantly... More

This hostel, though located very close to La Rambla, is actually in the centre of the red light district (so dont even think you'll be out and about at night). In fact, the horrible location could even be considered to be a minor flaw amongst the other horrid features of this hostel. These include (but are certainly not limited to)... More
