"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!…"

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: Perfect location, friendly atmosphere in the common area downstairs, large safes, ended up getting a private room with only one bunk bed which was nice.

Disliked: No air conditioning in the roooms, very very loud people, terrace closed too early for summer (8 pm), 5th floor bathroom was very dirty and had to go down to the 3rd floor to shower.

Liked: Its very close to the center of Barcelona and from de Liceu station. The plaza Real its chuch a very beautiful place to know. And, if you wanna party, Kabul hostel it's the right place to stay.

Disliked: Unfortunately, there is not a lounge place in this hostel. A place to stay and have some conversation or make a jam, play guitar. And there isn't a kitchen either. But, its a good hostel at all.

Liked: Most of the staff were super friendly and helpful! The bar made the atmosphere! It was nice to have a place where everyone could hang out and meet lots of new people!! The club nights and organised trips were really fun as well!

Disliked: The guy that checked us in was a complete dick. We waited over an hour to check in which wouldn't be a problem if it weren't for the fact that those staff were really rude! The doors on the shower don't lock which is really weird and the magnetic keys wouldn't work half the time!

Liked: it is a party hostel with a bar inside. the breakfast and dinner is ok. the staff is very friendly and they are organizing events to take you to clubs or similar places at every night. inside the bar there are 5 computers to use and tables and bar chairs enabling to meet and chat with new people. also you can play billiard and watch matches with cheap beer.

Disliked: sometimes other guests can be too dirty.

Liked: The location was extremely central, but that comes with being extremely touristy as well.

Disliked: The rooms and lockers stunk. There are no outlets in the rooms. The common room was loud at all times. There was no quiet room in the building. If you're looking for a "hostel experience" not a cultural experience, this may be the hostel for you. Everyone is an english speaker and is there to party at night with other english speakers.

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: 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!!!
