Liked: Located in the heart of the city, it's the most amazing place I've ever stayed in! I might as well not have left the hostel at all for the whole 5 days, that's how great the atmosphere was! Tasty food, great music, super friendly staff and a lot of amazing people coming and going every single day. I wouldn't believe you if you told me that there was a better place to stay in Barcelona.

Disliked: The common spaces (lounge area, bathrooms) were cleaned every morning, so no complains here. However, the 22 beds room was a horrible mess (of course, it was NOT the hostel's fault, it was just bad luck with the roommates). People are coming and going every day, so do prepare yourselves for a complete chaos. But then again, who comes in Barcelona to stay in the room anyway? :D

Liked: I have been at this hostel twice and really like it! I have always met really cool and fun people from all around the world. If you're looking for a quite place, this may not be the right hostel. However, if you're looking for a party hostel, def consider it!

Liked: BEST HOSTEL we stayed in!!! Loved it all around! Amazing nights out! Staff was awesome and so friendly I even got my back cracked by the security. This place made Barcelona one of my favorite destinations of my whole trip.

Disliked: Curfew of the common area sucked a bit but this way we made it out to more bars/clubs.

Liked: The rooms were brilliant and the square in which the hostel was located looks amazing. It is just 1 min walk from Lass Ramblas and 2 min walk from Metro station. Lot of good restaurants including cheap places like McDonalds, Burger King, Subway are nearby. I even walked to the beach and port as it was close by. The hostel even served free lunch and dinner. It organized great pub crawls. Simply loved the hostel.

Disliked: NOTHING AT ALL!!!!!!!

Liked: Free breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Awesome atmosphere and bar! Free club entrance almost every night!

Disliked: At the off-chance that you want a good night's sleep, this is impossible- loud music playing throughout the hostel and people stumbling in and out all night. Also, my locker was broken.
