If you want to be near the beach or out partying all night, this is the perfect place for you! If you want to get some sleep or quiet time, maybe look elsewhere. It also takes a little while to get into the city to see some of the major sights like Sagrada Familia or Park Guell so be aware... More

It was all in all a great hostel! Very friendly and welcoming staff with a lovely atmosphere. The kitchen area was a little on the small side and was busiest around 8-9pm, but when it was a little quieter there was everything you needed. They even provided free pasta which was fab! Having two computers to use was great and... More

The bad part of the hostel is that the room(atleast one in which I was staying) was way too small for even 2 people. Let alone when there were 4 of us in there And I mean it.There was only enough space for one fully grown person to stand upright in the room. When I entered the room the cleaning... More

Although it is a little offset from the main area of Barcelona it is only a 5 minute walk away from one of the main metro lines that takes you right into the heart of the city. The staff were wonderful and the atmosphere was alive at almost any time of day. They have communal dinners that are followed by... More

This was an amazing hostel, very friendly staff, clean, safe and in a great location. Some people are sad bcoz it's alcohol free but there are good pubs near by ,and every night they arrange for pub crawl.So can't really complain.Worth visiting and good value for money.

Hi Soumiya, Many thanks for your feedback. As you said we are a FREE alcohol hostel because the government doesn't permit to drink or sell alcohol in youth hostels, but you are right there is plenty of bars around for people who wants to go out. For us the rest of our guests is important too. Hope to see you... More

This was an amazing hostel, very friendly staff, clean, safe and in a great location. The problem I had was that it was alcohol free. I only wish you could drink in the hostel. The bars are close but a pre-game is always nice.

Hi Philipp245, Many thanks for your feedback. We really appreciate it. As you said is an alcohol free hostel. The alcohol is forbidden by law in all the youth hostels in Catalonia, but as you said is plenty of bars around to hang out and drink! Well, anyways we hope to see you again!

Stay here! Good dorms. Perfect location, quite cheap because it's a local type area. Good walk to a lovely park and a Lidl, but so worth it but it's extremely cheap and a great sightseeing park with a zoo. City centre is 5-15 minutes, or less by subway. Beach is 5 minutes walk away, the main beaches/ beach front is... More

Staying in Poblenou

Neighborhood Profile
Poblenou
The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that this area of town is the newly crowned technological park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well as a host of local and international high tech companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of activity in new high-rise residential buildings and two top-notch shopping centers catering to everyone's need. The ambiance of this area is calmer than the city center and the beautifully relaxing Bogatell Beach, popular with locals, is just a handful of blocks away.
