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.
