It is very nice place! I would recommend everyone who goes to Barca to stay there. Location of the hostel is just perfect to see the whole city. Free breakfast was included. Free use computer and free wifi in the rooms. the staff was great , One of the Receptionist helped us to find airport bus .Thanks for a nice atmosphere

We stayed at Nikbor for three nights in a twin room with own bathroom. The accommodation was acceptable although nothing special and for that a bit overpriced. The room was basic and a bit colorless compared to the otherwise innovative decorations. It was clean but had only a small window, the water heated up very slowly and the beds were a bit uncomfortable. The staff was available 24 hours and very helpful. Breakfast was included but for the price we paid a bit too basic. The location of the accommodation was okay with a metro station nearby but in a posh financial district with little else. All in all we would recommend Nikbor but it depends on the respective prices of the rooms.

The property is in an ideal area; only a 10 minute walk to La Rambla and a good amount of cheap restaurants are all within walking distance. The room was clean . The atmosphere was brilliant, I met lots of cool people from all over the world and the staff were always upbeat and friendly. 24 hour reception/no curfew was definitely handy as the Barcelona night life is awesome...The hostel also ran a number of tours for during the day and at night which was great for meeting new people. Over all, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this Hostel.

The staff were the best thing about the hostel. So helpful and friendly, and they really added to the laidback atmosphere of the place. it's a nice way to meet other guests. Bedroom and bathrooms were always clean. Very good experience that we suggest to all!

Very well located, within a walking distance to almost every touristic destination, also near the metro station.The atmosphere is extremely friendly and you can meet lots of new people.
The organized events and pub crawls are a big plus.
Recommend!

I liked A nikbor because of its very relaxed atmosphere. The living room is awesome. When I got back to the hostel, after a long walking tour around the city, I could enjoy a clean and quiet place. Also the location is much better than other hostels I've stayed in. And the price was reasonable for such a good place.

We traveled in a group of 3 and while we were there to see the sights & make the most of each day, we felt surrounded by a crowd of travelers that were there strictly for the night life & for the late night partying. The staff were nice but nothing to write home about. We asked for recommendations on several things (ie getting to the airport, places to eat) thanks !
