My friends and I had a lot to praise this hostel for: an amazing location (right on the beach), friendly staff and a nice atmosphere despite the basic nature you should expect of a hostel. But we would never stay there again, because a good night's sleep is impossible. For some reason, the walls between the rooms are incomplete (only... More

This hostel is the perfect location, only about 10 meters from the beach, 10 minutes to the big nightclubs and 1 train stop away from gothic qtr. staff were also very friendly. There are 2 negatives though 1) kitchen is tiny with no stove which made eating cheap hard 2) there's no atmosphere with no real social areas. A lot... More

The location is unbeatable, right on the beach - if that is what you are after however it is about a 10/15 minute walk to the metro. I was put on a bed ABOVE the bathroom with a 8 ft ladder to get to it. I couldn't even sit up and its was dangerous getting up and down that ladder... More

Very good location just down by the beach (and about 1 km walk to all the good clubs in town ). Staff were very friendly and the place was clean. Our room had own bathroom only shared by the 7 people in there. Sheets are provided and ok breakfast is included.

The only hostel in the whole city with beach front location! Surrounded by supermarkets, café's, restaurants and bars. The standards are simple. Keep in mind that it is a hostel. 7/9 bed dorms and en-suite. Awesome staff. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable (and they all seem to speak every language!). The cleaning staff do an excellent job at cleaning up the... More

The location is really great, taking a breakfast by the sea is really great. But the room are not that clean, it was really noisy because the partition dorms will not go to the top. 3 bedrooms therefore communicate with each other so expect light and noise during your night. Nevertheless, the price is cheap and the staff very helpfull... More

Awful hostel!!! Small and nasty rooms that look like a jail. They put people as sardines, No A/C, crowded and the rooms are interconnected, so you are awake all night from other rooms noises. I got robbed, and many other people. Every day you heard people getting robbed at the hostel or out in the beach. The rooms are dirty,... More

I think this is the kind of hostel you just either hate or love. I've seen many lukewarm reviews on here, and in all fairness, it isn't the fancies hostel around. BUT. I ended up extending my stay there from a few days to a whole week! The staff there is AMAZING, and then especially morning shift Naza and night... More

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighborhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
