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

Liked: it's a great place to stay, everybody is friendly. everyday they're arranging some tours around the city, also in the night everybody in the hostel is going to the famous clubs of the city. you can never be alone there. it's also clean. i stayed in a double room with my friend. it was too small but you're just sleeping there. that is not a problem. i highly reccomend!

29 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: As far as the location is concerned,Kabul is the right place to stay in Barcelona!This was the one and only advantage...We were speechless when we realised that there was not a single socket in the room to charge our mobile phones!In addition to this,smoking is prohibited not only in the hostel's cafe-bar,but in the rooms as well.There was a smoke detector!!!As if we were 5 years old and we would cause a fire...The staff were all very rude and unkind(except the girl with red hair)especially the old man with the glasses!However the nightlife that the hostel suggests is good,especially Apolo club!Overall,although the disadvantages were many,we do not have a bad impression of Kabul!Geographically it is in the best position!You can go almost everywhere on foot!If you are a very social person who wants and is able to meet new people from all over the world,then you have to stay at KABUL!!!

25 November 2009

Liked: No plug sockets in the rooms making phone-charging a nightmare. Plus I was woken up several times throughout the night by another resident of the dorm trying to touch me up under the blanket. Staff, bar a few were quite unpleasant.
