Liked: It has a very good location, the breakfast is good, and there are complimentary dinners if you get to the bar in time,

Disliked: Where do I start? No wi-fio and internet was 2 euro an hour. However, the machine to add more time to your account was broken, and the staff didn't care nor had any idea how to fix it. The staff in general are apathetic and unhelpful except when organising social events. The walls are very thin, the square it's situated on is loud and the staff don't care when other people have loud parties in other rooms and in the doorways until 2am. That's not an exaggeration. Good for partyers for 1 or 2 nights but a terrible place for a serious traveller.

Liked: There was a great atmosphere. There is a lounge/cafeteria area with computers where breakfast and dinner is served. It's a great place to meet people while eating, or just hanging out over some beers that they sell at the hostel bar. It was clean and they gave you information on anything you need. They take you out to clubs, cutting the lines, and avoiding you paying cover charges. The one thing is that it's a youth hostel, so it's not great sleep.

Disliked: If you want a good night sleep, this isn't the place for you.

Liked: The atmosphere!

Disliked: The staff. Ther were kind of rude and didn't return my key deposit money, which by the way was unusually high (15 euros). I might have had bad luck, but I felt that they are always trying to get more money out of you.

Liked: Incredible location, could not be better, right in the heart of where you want to be in Barcelona, La Ramblas. Great atmosphere, good free food, AMAZING value for money pub crawls (they get you into the best clubs for free), great place to meet people and a party atmosphere. Barcelona is notorious for pickpocketing etc but the lockers they provided were like safes and had huge thick doors so you felt that your stuff was really safe. Good key/lock system too. They have a professional cleaning team (not just gap students) who clean every room and bathroom for like the entire day so everything was always spotless. Don't stay anywhere else in Barcelona, and if you really want to party, book into a 20 person dorm like we did, just don't expect to sleep.

Disliked: Don't expect a good nights sleep if you're in a big dorm. The pub crawl starts at 2 am which means that there are pre-drinks in the big dorms beforehand and people arrive home anywhere from 3 until 6 am so you're constantly interrupted, but if this is an issue for you (it wasn't for us, we were there to party) just book a smaller dorm or even a private room. Just a warning.

Liked: It's a great place to go if you want to meet people and want to be right where the action is at. They even will have events and clubs that you can go to as a group. I felt safe but still had a great time and got to rest. I think for the price it is one of the best places in Las Ramblas.

Disliked: I didn't like that you only get 15 minutes to use the internet and then it is 2euros for every 15 mins after that.

Liked: I liked the location, which was just great! Close to everything and it was so easy going out from there. Also, the atmosphere was very nice and youthful. It was a place that you would really want to hang out. The staff was fine, good at english and helpful with informations. We liked the man, who served the breakfast - he was funny!

Disliked: The staff was, though friendly enough, very slow - they really took their time speaking over the phone instead of servicing the guests. But when they did, the service was good. The rooms were very small and not very cosy and when we arrived our room wasn't cleaned at all. Not so nice!
