This was probably the cleanest and quietest hostel I've stayed in. The staff were nice and I had a great sleep. The only downside was the wifi was a bit off at times. Nonetheless would recommend the place, especially if you have to catch an early morning flight, as it's just next to Sants train station

Right from the beginning this guy was rude, short-tempered with zero people skills. He should be working as a meter maid or corrections officer instead of a hostel! Then again he probably doesn't have enough education. The owner(s) must not understand that a hostel must employ customer-oriented individuals instead of miserable disgruntled and rude people like this guy. I didn't... More

Near train station Sants. Budget. Bunk beds. No privacy. But at that price and location it is hard to beat. In addition, the staff is nice and the kitchen quite well equip. Includes breakfast too. Perfect for backpackers.

There are big Internet issues at this place. Most people need to coordinate their days and plan their days. The wifi seems to be set to disconnect people after about 10min making life difficult. The staff pretend they don't know what's happening (or that there's no problem) or that the problem will be fixed soon... If you need to work... More

Booked to stay in a 10 bed dorm but after paying and being given my key I realised they'd put me in a 12 bed. They refused to refund the difference (only a couple of euros, but still) or move me to a 10 bed dorm. The three staff members I met were all unhelpful and pretty indifferent towards the... More

Great hostel. One of the best I've stayed in. The place has nearly everything you'd need during your stay. Quite close to the Railway station but the city center is far. Metro helps. Computers and kitchen were a saver for me.

Stayed in the 18 bed dorm for 2 nights. The room is huge so 18 beds didn't even feel as daunting. Check in is 24hrs, which has its pros and cons. Spent the first night constantly waking up because 15 new comers were getting checked into the room throughout the wee hours of the morning. Bathrooms were huge and great,... More

I stayed here for a night since it was walking distance from the train station and I was going to Madrid the next morning. The common room was nice and open for conversation with other travelers, although it was really warm. Great location for restaurants and bars. You do have to take a bus or taxi to get to some...

I stayed here with my friend for 4 nights. And it was a wonderful stay! We met fellow travellers who loved to chat and share traveling experience together in common room. The staffs are nice and helpful. The location is not in the central, but it's really near from Camp Nou (our ultimate purpose to Barcelona) and near the big... More
