Soul Backpackers Barcelona
Ranked #183 of 735 Specialty Lodging in Barcelona
Reviewed July 19, 2013

The owner is probably the nicest human being in Barcelona. He is super knowledgeable about the city, helpful with everything, and takes amazing care of his hostel. It is clean, fun, stocked with beers for only 1 euro... but it isn't ever too crazy and loud. Definitely a fun place to be, and a place you can still catch lots of sleep which is the best balance. Close to everything you need, has a fridge, kitchen, free breakfast, great music.....definitely the best!

Room Tip: we had a private room for only 7 euro each more which was a great deal.

I loved it, best hostel I've ever!!! been in Europe. For that price (but off-season) I just couldn't believe it!
Lovely staff and the guests were also very nice. It was as quiet as hostel can be, and the facilities (kitchen, living room etc) were pleasant. Anytime again!

The hostel is located near the metro station but you can also easily get to the main turistic attractions on foot (approximately 20 minutes). Cheap restaurants nearby with good quality food. The staff in the hostel is very helpful and keen to talk. Rooms clean (staff provide clean sheets for each guest)with six beds in each of them. There is a locked wardrobe so you can safely leave your things while sightseeing. Two showers, one big bathroom, terrace and spacious kitchen at your disposal (you can make yourself tea or coffe or just use hot water). Decent breakfast included in the price. Though there were many backpackers staying in the hostel it was very quiet at night.

It's not another fun and party hostel in Barcelona, but rather quiet and peaceful place to sleep in. The staff is very open and friendly, willing to recommend nice places to see or/and eat at.
The hostel may be a bit difficult to find for the first time, but its location is really good. It takes about 5 minutes to get to Girona metro station. There are some shops around, and good and affordable restaurant just across the street.

We stayed in the hostel just for one night, but that's enough to recommend the place for other backpackers.

i started an 8-day visit to the city, my first time in Barcelona, by staying my first two nights here. It was reasonably easy to find, very close to a metro station. i was welcomed by a very friendly, Javier, i think it was. The room & bed was adequate, i was next to a window opening out to the main street, but it wasn't too noisy out there, and the guests during my stay also kept quiet. Some reviews have commented on the small kitchen, and it certainly is small if you're planning to cook a 7-course meal in there, but all i needed was to store some items in the fridge. There's enough common areas where guests can sit and chat or surf the net, and the terrace is also a nice place. Breakfast isn't much to write home about, expected for the price.

i recommend this place for the quiet location, the price you pay, and the staff friendliness.

Directions were not given properly in the website. They gave a wrong direction and I was searching for more than half an hour from the so called nearest metro station. Too many useless rules to keep the guests calm and quite. Guests were entering the room in the mid night disturbing everyone but they didn't allow me to shower in the morning at 6am saying that it would disturb everyone.

Really nice place, good staff, friendly atmosphere. Great location right in between Barri Gotic, Passeig de Gracia and Sagrada Familia. Large lockers, fit whole suitcases. Nice terrace in case you like to stay in one night. Only slight complain is the small number of bathrooms available, and there's only one stove for the whole hostel - queues for showering and cooking may happen. A little hard to find, no sign advertising the place. Look for the house number! Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the street, the locals like using their car horns a bit too enthusiastic...
