“Way Too Much Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is an amazing hostel. It is very much a party Hostel where you meet and become friends with people from all over the world. Every night there is a group of people heading for a night out and the place has such a friendly, homely vibe. The rooms were a little small but they were clean and Mikel and the other will go out of their way to help you however they can. It is in one of the best location and easy to find. Really excellent value for money.

The hostel was quite good, nice rooms with great lockers. We had a lot of fun with Jeroen, Mikel and Lorenzo. The last one is excellent in making pizzas. One thing which was actually quite clumsy was the fact that there wasn't a warning sign when the cleaning lady was busy. So i fell quite hard when the floor in the kitchen was wet, it was like sliding over a lying banana.

We had a lot of fun when we stayed here with 6 guys, the atmosphere was great, it's a small, cosy hostel where you instantly feel at home and can hang around on large couches. The drinking nights with people from all the other Sant Jordi hostels were hilarious! The staff guys, Mikel and Lorenzo, are extremely nice and go out of their way to give any advice or help you find a destination in the city, they make good pasta for the visitors, and their service is professional. The facilities in the hostel were completely fine, the rooms were cleaned very well and frequently, and all for a bargain price.

I absolutely adored this place. Was by far the friendliest hostel I've ever stayed in. Was clean, tidy and simple. It's in one of the best locations in Barca and is easy to find. Just get the bus from the airport, cheap and quick. The hostel people especially Mikel are great fun and have loads of information about the best places to go and also take you out on pub crawls with other hostels, meaning as a solo traveller you get to have great nights out and meet lots of other fun loving people. This is not really the best hostel to stay if you're after an early night as despite trying to stay quiet after 11:30pm, you're having that much fun that it's nigh on impossible to do so. I will definitely be returning for another week of partying soon :-)

great hostel in the middle of downtown, the guys running place make sure you are comfortable and you enjoy your stay!
Staff takes you out every night, free entrance to clubs! They make sure you find your way back to hostel as well.
Can't recommend to those who wanna have a good night sleep, but if you are a solo traveler and wanna meet new people and go out at night then this is the right place!

Absolutely nothing to criticise on this one. It did exactly what it said on the tin.

Bargain hostel, friendly staff, brilliant location and a small enough hostel that you get to know the other travellers.

We arrived at the hostel to check in with 1 guest more than we had reserved beds for. Despite being fully booked and rather than turn our friend away, the member of staff allowed him to sleep on a sofa in the communal area. Couldn't ask for more!

I probably wouldn't recommend to those wanting an early nights sleep or those with children, but I'm sure the hostel is marketed as having a party vibe anyway.
