Liked: It's as described, a party hostel, but a great place to touch down for a day or two, have an instant group of people to party with. Really great that the hostel organizes outings to the night clubs so you can go with people you've met and GET IN FREE to dance the night away. Lockers are huge. The entire building (main door, dorm door, locker door) work on a small electronic chip which is convenient and small to carry. Bar downstairs nice for socializing. Internet fast.

Disliked: The staff is not very welcoming upon arrival, but they warm up afterwords. The bartenders and the guy you runs breakfast are super warm and friendly! You don't expect to get sleep, but the staff doesn't have to enter the dorms at 4 or 5 AM, turn on the lights, and talk loud just because one person is looking for a key or something. Bathrooms not bad for traffic, but not sparkling or anything.

Liked: It had a great location on Placa Reial. It was definitely a party hostel, with a full bar, free pub crawl and entry to Opium.

Disliked: The staff weren't very nice and the beds weren't clean. There was gum on my pillowcase which was disgusting. The showers sucked too, the water temperature was hard to monitor and they were the push start showers that turned the water off every 30 seconds.

Liked: The bar was a great place to meet people and there were many events organized.

Disliked: IF YOU STAY AT THIS HOSTEL YOU WILL GET THINGS STOLEN UNLESS YOU ARE EXTREMELY VIGILANT!!! The lockers are electronic and DO NOT WORK PROPERLY!! I got my cash stolen from inside the locker that appeared to all my best judgement to be locked. The staff would not do anything about their faulty lockers. I know at least 5 other people staying in or around my room that got their things stolen. Also, I've been told by other travellers that this hostel is frequently robbed. So BEWARE!!!
