This hostel is perfect for your party and traveling needs. Very social place, very easy to meet other backpackers. The party atmosphere is really great and the prices really affordable. The roof top is the perfect place to grab a drink and the happy hour prices are cheap. You cant ask to be in a better area in Barcelona. The... More

This place has a very kind staff and is conveniently located near the port. I was extremely disappointed about how filthy my bed sheets were after almost paying the price of a hotel room for a bed in a box sizes room. The icing on the cake was the audacity they had and still have to charge guests for holding... More

Thanks for your feedback in order to help us to continually improve our services for our future guests. We are very happy to hear that you liked our staff and location. Could you give us more info about what made our sheets filthy? They are washed fresh for every customer. As for the luggage storage, we believe a modest fee... More

Perfect location, right next to la Rambla in a beautiful square, you are in the heart of the city. The bathrooms were relatively clean. We were there four nights and the free supper was pasta each time (not complaining, it was delicious!). The staff were meh, one guy was unnecessarily rude to some of my friends, we suspect he was...

My friend and I took a random trip to Barcelona for 3 days and stayed in kabul. It was excellent! Very clean, great location close to everything, friendly staff (shout out to Muhammad!!!) And a fantastic pub crawl every night! They have free breakfast and pasta every day which was a bonus! We were in the 24 bed mixed dorm.... More

I stayed in the hostel in late May-early June. The staff was friendly and cheery, the other guests were cool and polite. I stayed in a 20-person room, but I never felt inconvenienced - The lockers were good and functional, and the rooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. So if you're thinking of staying in a large room, I... More

Quite frankly the worst hostel I've stayed at! The two nights I stayed at this hostel were awful. I stayed in the 24 bed room, and I've never felt heat like it, the place was a sauna! The main square outside doesn't stop either, so constant noise, partying etc.. it's impossible to sleep at this place! I spent the rest... More

Location can't be beated. Just around the corner of La Rambla, neareast metro station Liceu, walking distance to plaza Catalunya. Walking distance to almost everything. Staff is really nice and helpful, always with a smile. They serve free breakfast (if only the had fruits and orange juice too that'd make it perfect) and free pasta at night. Also free walking...

The hostel was great! The location, right in the middle of basically everything you need and want to see while in Barcelona is great! The bathrooms were very clean and the beds clean and comfortable. The lockers in my room (201) were large enough to fit a normal size backpack or suitcase. The roof top terrace is nice, good, free... More

Its a great place to socialize and staff is friendly. The breakfast is not that good but there was locked closets for everyone and we felt really safe about leaving our staff there. We stayed five days in a 10-bed mixed room and it was extremely hard to sleep.
