“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

We stayed here in January 2014. Our room was quite spacious and comfortable for the price, but the location was perfect! Right on the Passeig de Gracia, we could walk out of our door and a short walk would take us past the Pedrera, the Casa Batllo, and a busy shopping and restaurant precinct. Public transport was convenient too. Only negative was the breakfast. But overall very good.

We booked a double room, ensuite bathroom (needs a renovation). Minimal old furniture, but the staff were kind and location was great, at the heart of Barcelona. Free breakfast: coffee, cake, toasts and cereals.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Location of this hostel was convenient. We traveled from airport by direct train to passeig de gracia-barcelona. It was about 15-20min walk to the hostel. The hostel is very clean, offers free breakfast and staff are friendly. Although, the only thing that we dont really like are the size of the room, it was extremely tiny for 2 guests with 2 big luggages. Other than that, definitely recommend for backpackers.

The Hostel was simply a great accommodation! The people that worked there were very welcoming, helpful, and patient with the many questions. The price for the hostel for the two nights was not that expensive. clean bed with clean sheets, a blanket, and a pillow. Overall I would recommend this hostel to any of my friend!

I enjoyed the staff and I think the place is good value for money -- it is not a five star hotel, but you will get fair service, food, rooms for the prices they charge.

The place offers lunch/dinner for 9 euros which is quite good.

Nikbor is in a great location in a very nice area of Barcelona. We stayed here for a stag do and for large groups it is perfect.

as far as hostels go it is good, the view from the balconies at the front is amazing. the beds are comfy. the room is reasonably clean. the breakfast isn't great but then the hostel is cheap to stay in.

my only significant issue is security, to get into the hostel you buzz and are automatically let in. you can then ask for any room key and no proof or identification is asked for. so anyone could get into your room at any time. If Nikbor can change this then they would have a fantastic hostel!

The people working there are so nice and helpful! They organise nights out with the others, so it is super easy to have fun and make new friends! The atmosphere was great, the hostel was clean and well situated, the train from the airport goes there. We had a great time in Barcelona!
