We went for a concert in Barcelona and stayed for a night with a friend in a room for 4 people. At the end we were 5 because there was a family and they added an extra bed. That wasn't a problem and they asked us if we minded before taking the room. The staff was very kind. The only... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in one of the large 16 bed rooms. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Met some awesome people and had the time of my life here. The rooms are pretty clean and felt fresh. The location is very nice. Close enough to the old city but far enough to be quiet and peaceful. I felt... More

We just got back from an amazing trip to Barcelona. The city was of the best I've ever seen and the hostel was lovely. The main things the hostel has going for it is its really cool, relaxed vibe and also its clean, modern feel. The place just felt very fresh, unlike a lot of hostels which (at least in... More

I like to stay at smaller hostels because I like the sense of community more than major hostels and this one fit the bill just right. The location was pretty good and the price was very affordable. The rooms were small and clean with only a few beds in each room. One of the down sides to my stay was... More

I have just returned from a short break in barcelona. Having never stayed in a hostel before, I wasn't sure what to expect. On arrival to hostel box I was pleasantly surprised by its modern and clean communal areas and the rooms were pretty good too. The staff were helpful. I stayed in the 4 bed dorm and had no... More

It's really close to Las Ramblas. The people who managed the place were also awesome, friendly and resourceful. I lost my baggage at the airport and told the receptionist regarding the upcoming calls from the lost and found. They took notice of it and assured me to take care of it. When I got back, my bag was there. Wonderful.... More

Good location -- near the port and a short walk to the famous Ramblas. Clean and cheap. I honestly can't complain about much for the price I paid, but there just wasn't anything that stood out about this hostel. It's not a party hostel, but be aware that you will be woken up by people coming back from partying at... More

Great location, near Las Ramblas, the subway station and the coast. The place is confortable and calm in spite of the big rooms. There aren't too many showers and toilets. It's not a party place and I couldn't notice much interaction in the lobby nor activities organized by the hostel, which makes harder to meet people to hang out with.

This is a nice clean hostel in a good location right near the metro and the port. The rooms are a little smaller than the pictures make it seem but there was still enough space. Just make sure you dont use the washer/dryer as it doesn't actually dry your clothes. We ended up having to turn our bunk bed into... More

Clean hostel with the greatest location. Park Guel in just 5 minutes of walk, city center is in about 10 min by metro. In this Hostel you can also find an information about bike rentals, tours and even get a coupon for a free dinner ( i didn't use it, but hope it's not bad).
