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: Loved it! I will definitely "Mambo Tango" again when I get back to barcelona :D great location and the staff was fantastic, really good recommendations to tour around. The fact that they also organised a night out was also a great way to meet people. I'm feeling like going back already.

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.

Liked: It's a very relaxed place, and a very respectful environment. The staff are really friendly and welcoming and make you feel at home.

Disliked: It's not a noisy, party kind of place, but of course, this is part of the attraction for a lot of people. Still very friendly though. The location is ok, not the best neighbourhood, but not the worst either, and reasonably convenient.
