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: Highly recommended. Great and very friendly staff. The staff made my stay there awesome. Good location, just a 10 min walk to Ramblas and close to the Metro line. Cozy rooms with lockers. Two showers and toilettes in each dorm. Kitchen and common room. Free internet terminals and wifi! Good music playing. Hostel provided free dinner one night; homemade stew with lentils and chorizo.

Disliked: The kitchen is not very well equipped and I couldn't get the hotplates to work.

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.

Liked: The most friendly and welcoming staff I've met in my travels, so helpful and inviting. Met a lot of great people here while I was traveling alone and found that I was never short on companionship in exploring the city. Facility is clean and homey and they have internet that works that you dont have to pay extra for. Located right next to Mont Juc, which was one of my favorite parts of the city, great for a run and alone time.

Disliked: Laundry service is available, though a bit pricey, and you cant do your own.

Liked: Very homey atmostphere! You get to know the staff on a first-name basis and they vice versa. They make some great reccommendations and you can tell they really care that you're having a nice stay in Barcelona.

Disliked: I think I would have liked to see a little more value for my money (ie. towels included or breakfast included etc.) because I have payed a similar rate throughout Europe and gotten more. Many good things outweighed the bad, however!

Liked: Mambo Tango is quite an excellent small hostel for those who value community over large loud party throngs. Set on a quiet side street, you can get a night´s sleep here, no prob. The place is spotless, thanks to Adela´s diligent attention - bedding always clean, floors always mopped, just super. The desk staff are the best, quite excellent - Daniel, Gustavo, Igor and Daves are efficient, super nice, play superb eclectic music...cook great stew and mix wonderful sangrias...and the tea, in many varieties, is free. The kitchen has all you need, though small and they recycle diligently. I have stayed in dozens of hostels and this is one of the very very best in Europe imho.

Disliked: This is really a great hostel, it´s like a family into which you are welcomed, no complaints at all.
