“Very highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

Spotlessly clean, brand new everything, powerful, hot showers, crisp, white, cotton sheets.
Very sweet staff.

5 min walk from Sants, but in a quiet area without the usual noise and undesirable things which come with being near a train station.

I should also mention that I was in a 6 person dorm ( actually sharing with only one other person) and it only cost me 14 euros.

New, clean and comfortable. Will not disappoint. Staff are very friendly. We had a piece of luggage that did not make it with us and Jordi diligently called airport to connect and inquire. He had to call over and over because the airport does not routinely answer the phone. Good news our luggage came in. Recommend staying ... beds are comfortable, nice pillows, clean but small washrooms. Few minutes from train station.

This hostel does not disappoint, its unique and true to form. Its a new hostel. Staff are excellent and its very clean. Location is very good and close to everything you need. Barcelona is such a great city and its great when you visit that you can stay at this safe hostel. Liked it very much.

Very good location; 8 minutes walk from Sant station, 2 minutes walk from metro station. Staffs were really nice and helpful and played great music. It is very small, everyone hang out like a family. However, the common area was not clean, especially the toilet and shower room.

Room Tip: Ask staffs to turn on air-conditioner at night

It is a small hostel, best thing is that is a really clean hostel, and brand new, it opened few months ago. Rooms are ok, a bit small but bed is comfortable. Staff is really really friendly. Probably will repeat.

My best hostel experience so far. The main selling point is the helpfulness of the staff, if you ask them where something is, they wont just tell you but they will also walk you there as well.
It is also vary new and clean, I couldn't fault the actual condition of Hostel.
It's tucked away down a small street which gives it a homely feel, but ita very close to the Placa de sants metro which means everywhere around the City is accessible.
Another great thing is the price, I thought it was very reasonable, everything was included in the cost, no hidden bed linen costs etc.
I would highly recommend it for a group of friends visiting Barcelona.

The staff is beyond wonderful- they are insanely helpful and incredible people. They always showed my friends and I local places to eat, gave us suggestions for traveling, and recommended the best ways to get around the city. It made my trip a million times better. THANK YOU HOSTELSCAT!!
