"A terrace to hang out laundry is ideal! Kitchen great for making own meals. Breakfast more elaborate than most hostels. Cheese. Juice! Not merely white bread alone!"

Liked: I had to check out ridiculously early in the morning, and the staff at the front desk packed me a picnic since I left before breakfast time. So cute!

Disliked: Nothing, really. Since I had to leave so early it was hard to sleep early with all the city noise, but I'm sure that would have been the case anywhere.

Liked: The staff were great and the location was safe. It is a bit of a metro ride from the center, but it is really easy to get there and back at any time of the day. Safe and lots of features which I was really happy about. Big lockers in the rooms which was awesome!

Disliked: Everything was great.

Liked: The rooms were clean, kitchen fully equipped, the breakfast was decent, there was a large terrace and indoor common area, and 24 hour reception was a nice bonus. Also, there is a shopping center nearby where you can grab food/things you've lost/need.

Disliked: Really the only set back is the walk to the metro. but it won't take you more than 20 minutes to get anywhere, and the neighborhood is definitely safe, which in Barcelona, is hard to find.

Liked: it is for the most part very well kept and clean, and the hostel is safe in regards to where it is located and the interior siituation.

Disliked: The hostel is a bit too big to be social, and there are constantly groups of churches or younger kids there so it is certainly not a great place to meet people to go out with or party.

Liked: The hostel had a nice open, airy feeling. Breakfast was good in terms of all the other free breakfasts I've had, but the juices were horribly over-sweetened, and the coffee was mediocre. Staff were very helpful. There were composting facilities in the kitchen!

Disliked: Wifi kept being overloaded by too many users, and didn't work most of the time. It also only worked in the reception area. The kitchen provided for guests was large enough, but only had one hot plate for 240 guests, so there was a small line-up to use it.

Liked: Cheap price, friendly personnel at the desk, 24h open door.

Disliked: Elevator was slow and noisy and stopped working after 2 days. Breakfast choice was terrible, vegetarians will have problems finding any decent food there. Also the kitchen stuff lacked any understanding or kindness of any kind.

Liked: It was central and well run

Disliked: The taps drove me mad- you need to keep pushing the button to make the water come for a little while. The water comes with incredible pressure when it does come. If they had a normal tap that allowed me to control the flow I would have used less water than the crazy setup they have now.

Liked: Fantastic Hostel. The staff were so nice. We got in around 3am and the security guard got us in and situated. Clean room, everyone was very respectful. Clean sheets and bathroom. Always felt very safe. The internet situation was awesome, even if people were on the 4 computers they provide, we only ever waited 10 minutes to use s. Got wifi on my phone too for free. The breakfast was really great, but if there a long time it can get repetitive. Croissants, meats, breads, cereal, and jams. Lots of juice and coffee choices though. Very friendly staff and the place was enormous. The terrace was really nice. Great to have a kitchen to store things in and use. It is a great deal for what you pay. Would absolutely recommend it.

Disliked: Didn't really feel any air conditioning in the rooms and the windows don't open but for the time we were there, it wasn't too hot. If you are showering at around 10am, might run out of hot water, but if you wait a bit, its warm again. I also do not recall there being a bar in the hostel. And there are signs that there is no alcohol allowed in rooms but everyone drinks on the terrace.

Liked: Personal at front desk are very helpful and all the facilities are clean.

Disliked: I stayed in a 8-bed female dorm with bathroom ensuite. Let's just say that sharing only one bathroom with other 7 people can be complicated if the timing is wrong.

Liked: 1. Cheap 2. Stuff can spaek english 3. Free breakfast

Disliked: 1. I had problems with door key, they tried to solve this 1 hour about this and at last they had to change my room. 2. Lockers in room are not safe. One key can open some other safe. 3. There is no hair-dryer in hostel (even with the deposit) 4. Bathrooms are not functional: Toilets and sinks are in different places. If the other one is occupied you have to wait. Also, there is no soap in bathroom. 5. Despite people say location is good, it is not. Far from center, just close to train station (20 mins by walking). When you walk around the hostel, there is nothing touristic. You have to take tourist busses, metro or train.

Disliked: Dusty at some places in the room. The fan/air condition werent working properly so the room was very hot even if wasnt so hot outside.
