Liked: Everything from decor to facilities to location was excellent. Very good value for money. The lounge and eating area were both very relaxing places for hanging out. The kitchen and toilets were always very very clean. The best thing were the reading lamps at the head of the beds so everyone could continue reading late into the night without disturbing anyone.

Disliked: Madhura left no negative feedback.

Liked: Great staff, fantastic location. We stayed for 4 nights and had a great break in Barcelona, exactly what is expected from a hostel.

Disliked: The only issue would be that the hostel advertises rooms of 8 and they are rooms of 10 beds instead but the price is still very good.

Liked: They actually serve you a nice breakfast in the morning. It's not free but, for 2 euro, it's pretty good: fresh bread toasted with nice jams, muffins, cold juice and hot brewed coffee. The common rooms are big with cushy furniture and small balconies with tables. The kitchen was great with lots of community food leftovers. Nice lockers. Friendly, competent and accommodating staff

Disliked: Can't think of any deal-breaking problems. It was a little stuffy in the rooms at night. But the beds are comfortable, and I stayed in two rooms, and neither one squeaked.

Liked: Great Location!

Disliked: The musty smell on the stairway. The leaky roof that dripped on me when it rained- yuck!. The staff had to place buckets and towels along the stairs. Slight health and safety risk!

Liked: The front desk lady was extremely helpful and nice. Everyone at the hostel was very smiley and kind. The location is amazinggggg, we could make frequent stops a the hostel to drop things off/pick things up or use the bathroom.

Disliked: the showers are a little weird, they are on a push timer and so you have to keep pushing the button, every minute or so, to keep the hot water going it was a little obnoxious.

Liked: Great location, the hostel is not too big but it has common areas so it's really easy to meet people. The hostel is clean and each bed has a locker. The staff were really helpful and friendly, and the internet was cheap and fast.

Disliked: They closed the kitchen and common areas around 11 at night, bit annoying if you're prepping for a night out but you can go downstairs and use the tables there.
