Liked: I chose the hostel based on the great reviews on this website and they do live up to them. I was surprised at how clean the showers and bathrooms were kept considering there were shared by so many.The staff is super friendly and so were all my fellow travellers. If you are travelling alone this is a great place. Not too big so it's easy to make friends.I would definitely stay again.

Liked: I really enjoyed my stay in Mambo Tango since the moment i got in, i actually extend it several times. It feels like being home. All the staff are great, have many suggestions about what to do in the city. Location is perfect, just 15 min walking to the main area. I would definetly recomend this hostel to young people. Next time i come to Barcelona, i ll stay here for sure.

Liked: The staff were great! Always willing to help, organizing events each night, rooms were clean, wifi worked great. However, must stress, the staff are awesome!!! Best I've had in the last three months of backpacking.

Disliked: It's a minor issue, but it's a 10 min walk from La Ramba, where lost of the action starts. However, the area around Mambo Tango is really interesting, great for transport, and the best/cheapest tapas you'll get in Barca.

Good place to meet other travellers, nice downstairs area to chill out and watch a movie if you are after a quiet night; and also diferent activities every day if you are in the party mood.And the best of all is the staff that work there, really friendly, they help you with whatever you need, good recomendation on things to do and also great just to have a nice chat.

Disliked: nothing at all

Liked: Close to the beach, Gothic areas and convenient with shops, tapas and bars nearby. Every night something is happening at Mambo Tango. It's a great place to meet people and all the staff were extremely helpful. One of my top 10 hostels.

Disliked: Bathroom for the ground floor bedroom could have a little more privacy.

Liked: Very good location not far from la rambla and the barri gothic, and also very close to a supermarket for groceries. Everything is cleaned daily, the common areas while small are very charming. The staff really make everyone feel welcome and they're always helpful, cheerful and honest. They have good advice for tourists and organize something every night from making dinner together to going to clubs.I especially want to thank Cacao (sorry for the spelling?) Carlo and Hannah for their great hospitality.

Disliked: The only thing was that the room I was in had a window that could be barely opened, so it was quite stuffy in the morning.
