Liked: The staff at this hostel are awesome (very helpful and a ton of fun!). The room was pretty decent with a balcony and a fan. The location is also great, close to metro and walking distance to Las Ramblas and the harbor.

Disliked: The only thing that was not fun at the hostel was the bathroom. I am not even sure if this is the staff's fault as I think maybe someone did not realize you have to keep the shower curtain inside the shower, repeatedly. There was always water all over the floor which was too bad because the bathroom itself was actually nice. But, I would still go back :D

Liked: Place was great! This is a more family oriented hostel. It is a smaller hostel than the ones i've stayed in but the staff is amazing & nice. If you needed information or directions they would provide a great deal of info. Cacau, Daniel, Luis thanks for everything. Also the place is very clean. Felt like they were always cleaning the bathroom. Location was very close to La Ramblas and very close to the subway. Very close to Ave Paralell so you can catch a cab instantly. They cook dinner or have sangria every night for 2 Euro. Breakfast isnt included but when Cacau was there she would generously prepare some food for us. Great tapas place close by. Ask Luis! Common room has a TV with a wide range of movies to watch. Highly suggest this hostel if you like something more on the quiet end.

Disliked: We stayed on the first floor and our bathroom was the common bathroom for the common area. Wasn't that big of a deal. The common room is kind of small but it worked. They only have 2 computers and the Wifi didnt work our first day there. This isn't really one of the "party hostels" but they do have a huge pub crawl in connection with the other San Jordi hostels in Barcelona which was loads of fun. But no real problems here.

Liked: Best hostel I've stayed in Europe. I stayed here 5 years ago and Had good memories of this place. Yes the ownership has changed and the free breakfast is gone, but if anything, the place is even better now. Daniel, Cacau and all the staff are pretty awesome. No wonder I love Barcelona!

Disliked: No free breakfast but its not a biggie given there are loads of cafes nearby.

Liked: My favorite part about the hostel was the staff. They were extremely friendly and helpful. Nice tv with good movies. The location of the property was very good. Close to La Rambla, metro line and other hot spots. pretty clean

Disliked: The showers are not designed well. You have to push and turn the nob, but water only runs for about 40 seconds before shutting off. Therefore, you have to push the knob with one hand for duration of your shower. Kinda hard to wash hair, etc with one hand! Also, hot water was not always working and the shower stalls are very small. I also did not like how my room and bathroom was so close to reception...the place is kind of small. I think the hostel is just a bit overpriced for the actual stay. You are paying for location and the staff because there is also no breakfast.
