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

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.

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: 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: Location, atmosphere & organized dinners & club entry. Breakfast & bonus small dinners ( sometimes average others a hit)

Disliked: Lockers didn't always work. Staff not good at communicating events. I.e we waited 25 mins for a scheduled walking tour with at least 15 others & were told after 25 mins it had been cancelled. We tried to extend our stay however staff told us to book it online because they couldn't be bothered helping us, apparently there was 7 beds available. None online though!!

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.
