Liked: I liked the atmosphere. It was very easy to meet people. There were 2 happy hours at the bar with really cheap beer. The staff were overall friendly and helpful, some more than others of course. The bathrooms were pretty clean, the showers had hot water.

Disliked: Not a great place to sleep. People are loud at all hours and the music from the bar gets pretty loud at night.

Liked: Fun atmosphere, bar in the lobby, definitely a party hostel.

Disliked: It seemed like a very young crowd (19-20 years old). The bartender was super rude. The rooms didn't have any outlets at all, so any charging, etc. had to be done in the bathroom or lobby. Also no lights.

Liked: The location is just at the heart of Barcelona best party places and the beach of Barceloneta.

Disliked: This is a place for young people to party. The hostel is closed about 1am, so you have to stay in your room or outside. The staff is terrible, look likes they want you to f%&k yourself, they are not willing to help you. The rooms are very very small and the bathrooms are very dirty.

Liked: This hostel is the best for you if you are looking for a great party time!! The staff is friendly, the common room makes it super easy to meet people and the events organized by the hostel every night are pretty great. I also liked that the bathrooms are not in the room, makes it easy to shower at 4 am if you feel like it. The location is perfect. Great place.

Disliked: If you are looking to sleep, good luck. However you should consider this before booking the hostel. Its up to the people in your room.

Liked: Great atmosphere, and got to meet a lot of really fun people. Includes breakfast and free dinners, as well as free entrance to clubs every day of the week, which meant saving a lot of money. The location is perfect, and although many complained about staff I found them all friendly and helpful (definitely recommend the free walking tour! the guy is brilliant!) Of course, you must be prepared for some cramped rooms and quite a bit of noise, but it all came with the experience! I would go back to Barcelona just for this hostel.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Like their mottos, "easy to find, hard to leave".

Disliked: Due to population of this place, toilets were really dirty. They should clean them more often. The "dinner" is at 20:30 but as far as they told us, it runs at 20:35, although we were at common area at 20:55.

Liked: comfy beds, big lockers, clean toilets, really good air conditioning in the rooms, really good location in nice square close to La Rambla and lots of shops/ places to eat, free entry into some of barcelonas biggest clubs

Disliked: Some of the staff were really rude and unhelpful. It felt as if no-one knew what was happening and when you asked you were made to feel like you were bothering them. Also the bar and common area was really warm so when in the hostel we spent most of our times in the room as it was a lot cooler. It was really noisy until everyone left for the clubs around 1.30 which didn't bother us but for those wanting to sleep i definitley would not recommend this hostel to them
