Liked: The hostel was very homey, casual, accommodating, and welcoming. Everyone I met was so friendly and nice and it made traveling alone very comfortable. I met so many people and went sight seeing with people and clubbing at night with others.

Disliked: The hostel is not extremely close to the night clubs but that is my only real complaint. It is so close to the metro and many many other sights.

Liked: Incredibly friendly laid-back atmosphere, excellent location close to Las Ramblas, very clean. A genuine backpackers' hostel. Staff could not have been more helpful, especially Igor!

Disliked: My only slight criticisms would be: 1) the curtains in my dormitory were very thin, meaning the room became quite light relatively early; and 2) there was only one available power point per dormitory, making charging of phones/iPods etc. a bit of a lottery.

Liked: Mambo Tango was such a wonderful place to stay because it was like a home. The couches downstairs are ultra comfy, the rooms are well ventilated with a/c, and the staff are hilarious caring people. I would definitely go back to Mambo Tango - the location was great, the people were awesome and the atmosphere relaxed. Music choices by the staff were very nice also! The kitchen is easy to cook up a storm in, and the facilities operate on a trust system which made me feel like i had the respect of the hostel. A wonderful experience.

Liked: I can not say enough fabulous things about this hostel! If you are coming to Barcelona you absolutely must stay at this hostel! The staff are amazing, friendly, helpful and fun. It is great value for money and is very central for walking throughout the city, catching a bus or metro to anywhere you want to go. Gustavo was so much fun and very helpful! I met wonderful people here from all over the world and would highly recommend the hostel if this is something you are looking for on your travels! Mambo Tango is the best hostel in Barcelon by far!!

Disliked: Nothing it was absolutely perfect!

Liked: The staff were amazing. Also, it is really not a party hostel (thank god!) but you can meet people and have a drink in the lounge / bar, and still be assured of a good night's sleep when you finally choose to go to bed (as you are in Barcelona, that can never be too early). There are lockers and comfortable beds.
