“Best End to Our Eurotrip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

I can't praise the staff and accommodations at Rock Palace enough. They went well above and beyond any of our other hostels. Whatever you do, do NOT miss out on the pub crawls. They are a blast, you meet a ton of people from the hostel, and the staff who join are amazing!

Room Tip: We stayed in a ten person room, which is really fun if you are looking to meet people and not be too...

Excellent hostel from the minute we arrived, staff were very friendly, and offered us a secure place to keep our luggage until our room was ready as we arrived early in the day. The man at reception then offered suggestions of what we could do while we waited, and gave us a map with directions and markings of the places he suggested. A ten minute walk from the placa de cataluyna and La Rambla, the location is central, there is also a bus that runs from the road of the hostel to La Rambla (this bus also continues on to the beach which is about a 20 minute ride from the hostel). The rooms were very clean, and each guest has a large locker as well as a small area at the top of each bed for storage, also equipped with personal reading lights for night time. General lights in the rooms turn off around 11pm each night. The windows also cannot be opened after this time for safety reasons. The rooms did get very hot at night time however I feel this is to be expected since the window was closed and we were in a room of 10 people! We had one bad experience with a guest who caused the room to smell significantly however this was not the hostel's fault. The social aspect of the hostel is great - everyone is very friendly and inviting and the nightly pub crawls organised by the team that work there make everyone feel welcome.
The decor is amazingly modern and well thought-out. I was very impressed by the theming of each floor (each represents a different famous club/music venue and is decorated in that style). Although the roof top jacuzzi was not working while we were there it was still nice to be able to relax on the roof top in the sun
Would definitely stay here again.

The hostel website recommends getting the airport bus from the airport to the plaza de catalunya followed by the metro from there to the hostel, however it is only a ten minute walk - I would recommend walking even if you are transporting luggage because the metro takes longer, costs more, and involves a lot of stairs which is not ideal with luggage!

Excellent clean hostel with activity on offer every night. No obligation to join in though and easy to get a good night's sleep if that's what you'd rather. Would definitely recommend for people travelling in groups and people travelling alone.

Absolutely fantastic. Fun atmosphere from the second we walked in. Staff were great - friendly, helpful, and full of information. The hostel arranged outings every night which was great to meet people. The kitchen was large and clean, and the free coffee and tea was nice. The rooms were clean and the key locking rooms and lockers were very secure. Great location too. Overall a great experience here!

I can't write anything negative about this hostel. The location was perfect, the staff were very friendly and helpful and we made some great friends with other travelers.
The hostel is extremely modern and clean. Every evening the staff arranged for everybody to go out together which was hilarious and the perfect way to meet other people from across the world.

I would definitely recommend this hostel to anybody visiting Barcelona and when I return I hope to stay at the Sant Jordi Rock Palace again.

(We stayed at the hostel for 4 nights at the end of May/beginning of June)

Close to transport, which is really handy. The rooms are all well cleaned especially in comparison to the other hostels I have stayed before, they are very basic which you would expect from a hostel but had lockers to keep belongings. The toilets/shower rooms are all very clean (coming from someone who is VERY picky about those). Staff were all friendly and on nights the whole hostel went out as a group which created a great social atmosphere. There was also a modern kitchen which anyone could use to cook meals if they didn't want to eat out. Had a fantastic time and met some great people.
