Wasn't expecting much being a hostel, but was amazed by the facilities and the friendliness of the staff there. The dorms and bathrooms are really clean. Breakfast is provided, but it's fine if you're not up for it, since the location is fantastic. Just a few steps out of the hostel and you're at La Rambla, the busiest tourist streets... More

I couldn't say that this is the best hostel I've been in. Overall cleanliness could be better and breakfast is a joke. However there are some pros, it's in the middle of the city, close to everything. It's also relatively cheap comparing to other places in Barna. And it has safe lockers.

We stayed here in May 2013 for 7 nights, we wanted something cheap and near everything. Me and my friend took the ''mixted rooms'' of 12 beds. The beds are comfortable, the lockers are safe (they rent the safety box at the front desk) and you have to make a deposit for the linens. The staff is very helpful (Thanks... More

Stayed for 3 nights. A group of 8 had booked an 8-bed dorm for 3 nights but due to some mix-up we ended up sharing with 3 others in a 12-bed dorm for the first night. Despite this the reception staff were very friendly and were very helpful when it came to recommending tourist attractions and providing sheets and towels.... More

The hostel great location, but should not seek Arco Youth Hostel, a hostel Palermo. This is the same institution in fact, simply dormitory located in the same building, and separate rooms - in the other. Relatively clean room, shower and toilet in the corridor, you can have breakfast in the restaurant next to the entrance to the hotel. All in... More

I had a nice time here! I felt safe, we were very close to all the attractions, and the price was decent! It is hard to find but right off La Ramblas (the big road in Barce), easy walk to all the Gaudi buildings, the sea, the Gothic Quarter, etc. Breakfast was not delicious but it included some fruit and...

Extremely difficult to find (lane is not on any map, online information and staff got on the phone didn't give any valuable clue to find the place, and local people themselves get it wrong). I needed to cancel my last night, yet since doing it online would have costed more than the price for the night itself, I asked the... More

I walked in here without booking anything in Barcelona. My experience was pretty alright. It's true that they don't allow alcohol in the hostel; however, it's just a matter that alcohol tends to make people loud and rowdy when others want to sleep. Most of the people in this hostel are travelers. What I really didn't like was the fact... More
