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.

Liked: Most of the staff were super friendly and helpful! The bar made the atmosphere! It was nice to have a place where everyone could hang out and meet lots of new people!! The club nights and organised trips were really fun as well!

Disliked: The guy that checked us in was a complete dick. We waited over an hour to check in which wouldn't be a problem if it weren't for the fact that those staff were really rude! The doors on the shower don't lock which is really weird and the magnetic keys wouldn't work half the time!

Liked: The location was extremely central, but that comes with being extremely touristy as well.

Disliked: The rooms and lockers stunk. There are no outlets in the rooms.The common room was loud at all times. There was no quiet room in the building. If you're looking for a "hostel experience" not a cultural experience, this may be the hostel for you. Everyone is an english speaker and is there to party at night with other english speakers.

Liked: it is a party hostel with a bar inside. the breakfast and dinner is ok. the staff is very friendly and they are organizing events to take you to clubs or similar places at every night. inside the bar there are 5 computers to use and tables and bar chairs enabling to meet and chat with new people. also you can play billiard and watch matches with cheap beer.

Disliked: sometimes other guests can be too dirty.

Liked: Perfect location, friendly atmosphere in the common area downstairs, large safes, ended up getting a private room with only one bunk bed which was nice.

Disliked: No air conditioning in the roooms, very very loud people, terrace closed too early for summer (8 pm), 5th floor bathroom was very dirty and had to go down to the 3rd floor to shower.
