12 July 2010

Liked: It's location was central if you want to be near to the bad beach and to the tourist party animals. Be prepared to spend a lot of money finding food at night, if at all.

Disliked: The hostel was a party haven for teenagers, and there were tons of guys, more than girls, all superficial and looking to get laid. It is not for the real traveller/backpacker and it is especially not for someone looking to have a normal schedule and do stuff during the day. If you want to get drunk at 2am and meet losers, sleep all day and get treated like crap by the staff, stay here.

Liked: Pros: Good location, and they take you out to party for free every night. Good free breakfast, free dinner too although it's not great.Cons: Staff was unbelievably rude and inconsiderate. We waited in the bar for almost two hours while they said they were checking us in. Also staff didn't seem to know a lot about the city, aside from the very main touristy stuff.

Liked: If you want a party hostel this is it!! At some points we just wanted to relax and there was nowhere you could go. I guess if you get your own room then its okay. we shared with 20 people so everyone was in and out, comming home at different times. the hostel was at full capacity so 250 people were at the hostel. you will meet alot of people here, so thats good. Everynight they go to a different club and its free. thats really fun since everyone at the hostel goes. They have free breakfast and dinner, thats a major plus since Barcelona is expencive. You cant beat the location of the hostel, right off La Rumba street.

01 June 2010 Michelle would recommend this property

Liked: pros: most amazing location ever (right in plaza real, next to a bar and many restaurants, beautiful square, right next to the main road la ramblas), clean plain rooms, free breakfast in the morning, 20 minutes of internet free per day (including wifi, but you can pay 5euro to have unlimited wifi for one day) - good but annoying, wish wifi was free, pool tables etc. BUTT you have to pay 1euro to play any of the games, staff takes you out every night to the biggest and best clubs (most of the time for free admission)cons - place is more like running a business (1euro to play pool and other games, no free unlimited wifi, must buy your towels (3euros for a medium sized towel which cant fit around your body and 10euros for a towel big enough to wear out - pretty expensive), our room smelled like cat food buttt we just closed the window and turned on the ac to get rid of the smell

Liked: great place to meet people, super clean, fun atmosphere. party environment wasn't exactly conducive to getting things done the next day but was still loads of fun. staff were quite rude to me and my friends more than once without just cause, but other times they were friendly and nice... that was probably the biggest drawback at kabul, everything else was super!

Liked: my first step inside the hostel was greeted by a dozen half empty cups of beer in the lobby, which is a pretty accurate view of the place. they say on their own website "if you want a place to sleep, go somewhere else" and this is true! i was so dead tired that i actually did get good sleep, but know that people won't settle down til very late and there is music bumping at the club next door. eventually you get used to it, and the beds are comfortable, plus a super secure locker in ur room. you get a bit of free internet time and access to a lot of brochures... the staff can seem a little bit shady at first, but they're harmless and a couple are pretty fun. the place is very clean, which is super important. my best advice: bring your own towel, wake up on time for breakfast (8-10), and ask the staff and other travelers about things to do. that will give you the most for your money!
