"EXCELLENT location within the plaça reale. All the free walking tours begin here. The plaça is just off La Rambla which is the most happening street with cafes, restaurants, markets etc. Free breakfasts!…"

Ivana Rokolj

04 May 2010

Liked: This hostel is pratically on the La Rambla street. This is the best thing about it. The add says: "If you only want to sleep go somewhere else" THEY MEAN IT!!! in four nights that I was there only the last night I was able to sleep a little. Bagging the doors or long group conversations ,in the middle of the inight,in front of your room are normal there. Room and Bathroom weren't very clean but I guess it could been worse because neither the city or the restaurantes were clean. Friendliness of the staff is on the level that they have to do it with the exception of a nice older man that works on the breakfast bar who every morning had at least a friendly greeting for us.

Liked: Best Hostel I have ever stayed in, so much fun!!! Met lots of great people. Helpful staff. Free breakfast and dinner. Best place to be stuck when a volcano erupts. Great place for people who are wanting to have fun and don't mind a bit of partying.

13 April 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I did like this place. It is fun to stay here. However, for the amount you pay it isn't worth it. You pay a minimum of 20 euro and only get 20 minutes of internet a day, you also have to pay 3 euro if you want a small towel. i have never met such rude staff at a hostel. They are inefficient and seem like they would always rather be doing something else. Checking in is a total hassle and sometimes you couldn't check in until a new shift started, we got there at 10 at night and had to wait till 11 to check in. They are not helpful and will outright be rude to your face. It is a good place to stay but don't expect to be well liked by the staff.

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.
