Liked: Free Breakfast & Dinner. Bar staff was entertaining and funny. Nightly club is always free w/ ur room key, solid clubs and saving about 15€. Really easy to meet people and have fun if your a single traveler.

Disliked: Mon pub crawl was quite worthless for 7€ to empty bars. Sometimes sketchy people wondering the hallways of our floor, but Barcelona is supper sketchy in general.

Liked: Great location.

Disliked: Bed cleanliness is a bit sketchy. Beds are very short as well (ie. not great if you are 6 feet and over). The staff seems completely cynical of working there and not very willing to be helpful. And for some reason, the bar-loungy area really plays the worst music ever. From 80s soft-rock to questionable reggeaton to backstreet boys and spice girls marathon. You may find this to be an upside though. It's not a bad hostel, it's functional and well located, but there is definitely better in Barcelona.

Liked: the location is very good, but a little bit noisy

Disliked: much to much strangers in there, there was a fight in the lobby while we arrived there, only police was able to stop it. staff is not friendly, rooms look like a prison, toilet was closed during 09:00 and 10:00 am, i think the most frequnted time in a hostel. The living room turns into a dubstep party in the night time, horrible...

Liked: it's near the bars and clubs of barcelona and also near th city center.it's a hostel where you can have a lot of fun and to meet people.

Disliked: if you book the room where you will be sleeping with other 18 people it's better to have earplugs.we have problem with the light because each bed doesn't have their own light.
