This is a great hostel! If I'm ever back in Barcelona HelloBCN will be my first choice. Great service, clean rooms and comfortable beds. Close to supermarkets, metro and Montjuïc. Also, breakfast is provided, as are maps and tourist guides, and guests at the hostel are given discounts to local businesses. My friends and I really enjoyed our stay here,... More

What a disappointment!! The worst check-in and service ever seen!! Luckily this type of hostel it's not worth a visit again and the old bold man working there should think of retirement or change job! Hostels are made for young people by young mind set people!! There are no words to describe what has appended! I have recommended this option... More

Firm mattresses. Bright fresh place. Location is great, El Poble-sec has proper night & cafe culture. The Castle is up the hill & the mischievous Raval is down !. Moments from the port! Rooms some en-suite are airy & street outside is quiet .. fitness room & a nice lounge space to meet greet & relax !

I've stayed in this hostel twice for 2 days in 2010 and 2012. I must say that it was my first choice even in my second travel to Barcelona. As a traveller with strict budget, I was very pleased with both of my stays. The location of the hostel is easy to find. The prices are great.

I stayed here for 3 nights and quite enjoyed it. The staff were helpful and the free breakfast meant I could make myself lunch to take out for the day too!! The neighbourhood that the hostel is located in is a bit dodgy but as a single female I never felt unsafe. The key system is a great idea, you... More

We stayed two nights here. Arrived late but it wasn't a problem, the man on reception was friendly and checked us in and gave us all the info we needed. It's a 10euro cash deposit for your wristband which gives you access to the hostel, your room, and your locker in your room. The lockers are fantastic! They were so... More

I paid 30€ for one night in an 8 bed room here. It was clean, quiet with a decent atmosphere. The breakfast was well stocked, but pretty meager in terms of the variety. The bathrooms had no mats on the floor or anything so the floor was always covered in shower water. I almost slipped every time I went in... More

For €27 a night I wasn't really impressed with this hostel. On arrival they took forever to check us in and just handed us a pack of sheets to make up our beds for ourselves. The shower have bad water pressure and the breakfast is fairly average. On the plus side the nightlife activities and free pub crawls that the... More
