Liked: Very loud if you get the 20 person room. Expect a bit of partying in the room before going out for the night around 2. Free entrances into discotecas with the hostel - Fun way to meet people and know the best places to go.

Liked: they do a lot to help make your stay in barcelona a good time. every night there's a specific bar or club they all go to and they have a pretty good breakfast and dinner was decent. definitely worth the money but not in the best location in terms of safety because that area is known for pickpocketers. overall it was decent, kind of like a huge college dorm to be honest.

Liked: great location, helpful staff, but keep in mind it's really noisy pretty much all night long - bar downstairs, thin walls, rooms overlook the plaza where there are lots of bars and people partying. definitely recommended as long as you don't mind not getting a ton of sleep.

10 March 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The good point is the location, you won't find a better one...as far the rest is concerned, you can not really sleep because of the noise, the toilets are really far away from the room, it seems to always have some problem with your locker/ your bed/ your reservation, anything... the staff is kinda helpful but you can see that you are a pain in the a*s when you ask them to some informations about the city or anything...The other good point is the free dinner but if you are a guy, you can already plan to go to KFC afterwards.The staff in charge of the animation is cool, in a "Club med" style.This hostel is quite good it's true but I won't go back again.

27 January 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Great location and good value for money however I would definately not recommend it to anyone planning to get a good nights sleep (on a saturday night anyway). There were people in the next room shouting and screaming until 7am in the morning and the staff didnt do anything about it until it happened again the next night.

RENATA COSTA

09 January 2010 RENATA would recommend this property

Liked: Kabul is a very nice hostel. The location is good but you have to be aware of pickpockets in Las Ramblas. Part of the staff was great but THE BALD RECEPTIONIST he should stop working there. They give free dinner every night, a happy hour with cheap beer and a club for free. This was really nice. The rooms are quite small but if you are staying with your friends I would recommend it for sure
