The receptionist seemed not very interested in being a good host.

You had to review the hostel high on some webpage to get the Wifi!!

The place was clean and looked quite new. I wouldn´t recommend it though. There are better iptions close by.

I had a wicked experience here, it was a great hostel in a nice location for a great price. One of the main highlights of this hostel was the basement. Great place to meet people and play games/listen to music.

There is a small kitchen but some great tapas bars around the corne

Our room was like a spooky small cell in a jail. No window, no place for our luggage or anything. You cant sleep at night, cause there‘s no chance for fresh air and if you put on the air condition its to loud. Horror... and pretty expensive. But at least the location of the hoste

This place is so F-ING noisy - I can’t believe how few have commented on this! People stomping up and down the stairs, playing music, and even the visits to the toilet can be heard from anywhere on the two upper floors. We had to get up at 5am Monday morning so we went to bed ear

The staff were caring and helpful. The breakfast was good cereal toast ,apples , cheese, juice and tea and coffee.
The hostel was clean. Our double room comfortable with a pleasant little balcony. Although the room was slightly apart from the main hostel and on the third floor.

Are the bed linen/towels supplied in the room price?
There is bed linen, but i don't think there are towels. I had my own, so I'm not sure about that.

Hello, What is your latest check-in time? Our group wouldn't be arriving until after 11pm. Thanks!
is the hostel far from airport? i'm going my self next week, ive travled in hostals a few times but this will be the first time my self so im the same a bit worried! and hoping I will meet some people!
Hi Gary- I can't remember how long it took to get to the hostel but it wasn't too far, we got 2 seperate trains which I think is pretty common with barcaleona cos their metro is crazy compared to Glasgows simple circle! At the airport head for the metro, depending on what terminal you're at i think you'll have to walk over a sort of bridge/walkway to get to it. From there you can't go wrong as it's a simple one way system - one train leaving the airport and the other coming in to the airport. At the airport metro buy a multi journey ticket as it will save you money in the coming days! I think it's like €10 or something can't mind how many journeys but at the end of our long weekend we hadn't used them all up! So that line is the grey line, stay on that til you get to Sants station then get off and jump on the green line and get off at paral-lel. The hostel is less than 5minutes walk from there! If you're going alone the hostel is a great choice :) they will offer to make dinner for you and take you out on tours and pub crawls haha. Have fun!
