I decided on this hostel as I was planning a trip to watch football at Camp Nou and I like to be close to the airport which is a 20 minute walk from terminal 2 (avoid the motorway and choose the little road which runs adjacent to it called Cami Cal Mones - look at google maps). I had seen... More

I like it's design, his enviroment, it's breakfast is great and delicious, the bed is comfortable. It is easy to reach to Barcelona center, it will take you not more than half an hour. The price/value rate in this hostel is really good. Altough... ...the cleanliness would be better...mostly as far as the breakfast facility concern (dirty cutleries, for example..).... More

We chose this hostel because it's close to the airport and we arrived too late to pick up the rental car. It's reachable by bus from the airport, but it takes forever, because of the trajectory of the bus. Location: a rather scruffy neighbourhood, with very few dining/drinking possibilities. The restaurant attached to the hostel closes early, so be prepared... More

Breakfast was too busy and not enough food to go around. Lots of special needs adults and carers staying which can be a little intimidating. DONT GET... More

The hostel itself is a solid 4- very clean and modern. I booked a private room and they gave me a room w/ 4 bunk beds w/ a bathroom all to myself. The bed was comfortable but reviewers were not joking about the wildlife noise - I thought maybe people were just being prissy, but no, it's VERY loud. I... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for one day for an early flight from the Barcelona airport. Located very conveniently for airport access however for any tourists wanting to frequent the city centre, i would not recommend this hostel (1 hour bus ride). The facilities and service were great, staff were very helpful; they even deliberately made us breakfast for... More
