“An awesome hostel !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I was there last week-end, I had a nice stay!
The place is really clean, fun and it has a unique decoration. The staff is amazing and helpful.
The location is the best and easy moving to all turistic places. I'll be back again and I recommend this place to everybody!

There aren't enough toilets, so people have to wait to go to the toilet!!!!
We spent 2 days there and nobody cleaned the toilets....
It's to noisy you hear everything from the street
The hostel is quite nice but we didn't like the lack of atmosphere

Dear Africa2009 ,
As we see during your stay in Baecelona you was every 2 days in a diferent hostel and as we see non of them were good for you . So the problem is yours . We have 2 times cleanners in hostel ( total of 10 hours ) after check out and at night when everybody is sleeping .So how do you say that we never cleaned .I remember you and your friends untidy and all objects around the beds and nobody could clean around your bed . See other coments please . What kind of services you need more? We gave you clean , comphy , new and bright rooms . Big Kitchan . activity room , terrace , 24 hours recepcion , free walk tours , free pub crowls... We don't know what kind of services you need more . Please be honest in future and if you are not organized , tidy , clean and open minded in share rooms stay in a hotel . You was been in all good hostels in Barcelona and you werent happy with non of them , so is clear that the problem is yours not hosteles. Thanks

Small hostel with a great atmosphere! Pub crawls running on most Friday and Saturday nights, the staff are incredibly friendly, kitchen is well equipped (but no oven), small but cosy common/lounge area (tables, couches, tv, computer, board games, cards etc), cheap alcohol for sale, female and male bathrooms, no powerpoints or reading lights at each bunk (that sucked) and the whole hostel always seemed to be very dark... Need better lighting! But apart from that, an excellent hostel and I would definitely stay again.

A friend and I stayed here for 5 nights at the beginning of June, and we absolutely loved this hostel. The staff were awesome - Lucas and Miguel both always playing music in the common area (Miguel playing violin and Lucas playing guitar/singing), not to mention Lucas' wicked taste in music that was always playing the background when he wasn't playing his own. The hostel itself is decorated beautifully and the kitchen/common area was super well-equipped and a great place to meet other travelers. Every night the staff organized outings to bars and/or clubs, which were always fun. Overall, really mellow, relaxed atmosphere and beautiful environment to spend your time in Barcelona. Only suggestion is a little more of a thorough cleaning of the bathrooms. Other than that, five stars 100%.

Me and a group if friends have stayed here over the weekend. The rooms are clean and spacious, beds are really comfy and large lockers.
Bathrooms were pretty clean and nice, showers hot and powerful enough.
Common area downstairs was really good and comfortable. Fridges for you to use and refreshments to buy. You can also rent bikes for €10 for the day, and rent things such as towels, which is a great help.
The whole place has such a lovely vibe and feel and everyone was so friendly and sociable.
The people on reception are so helpful. Go to them for help, they know the city well and have maps for you.
The boys from reception at the hostel organised a night out which was brilliant as they knew where was good to go. The two boys on the desk are so lovely.
The hostel is so safe to stay in, doors are locked at night and you must buzz to be let in. There is someone on reception 24/7. So good!
This hostel is perfect location and such a lovely friendly place for such a cheap price. I'd definitely recommend it and would definitely stay again, should I find myself back in Barcelona.

Best hostel ever. Staff were friendly. people were nice. Environment was friendly and everything was perfect. Best 4 days of my life.Also it tooks like 15 minutes by walking to la rambla.There was a common kitchen , so you dont have to spend your money in fast food restaurants etc. also there was a library, full of beautiful books. and the living room was really comfortable for chilling. If you are looking for a hostel in barcelona, you must stay at tailors hostel

Yes the hostel is cute looking and close to la rambla. However it lacked the welcoming environment it was more as if my arrival was a disturbance to them. For one when I got in they were disorganized didn't know where the key was or their check in book. Then she gave me my key didn't tell me how to get to the room and also forgot to give me my sheets...thanks! The beds were good and the lockers provided were spacious but the bathroom smelled horrible and it did not go away. The day of my check out was interesting and it was only 7.30am, I was waiting for my shuttle and the one guy actually told me I should wait outside because he was going to mop the floor and I was in his way...again, THANKS! Luckily my shuttle got there in time...Anyways location is good but if you want better staff and feel a bit more welcome look elsewhere.
