"EXCELLENT location within the plaça reale. All the free walking tours begin here. The plaça is just off La Rambla which is the most happening street with cafes, restaurants, markets etc. Free breakfasts!…"

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: Every single night there is an event planned, so there was always something to do!

Disliked: All of the rooms had a very funky smell. It also looked like there was mold growing from the ceiling where the air conditioning was so that could explain the smell....

Liked: Location is good.

Disliked: No powerpoints in rooms so have to leave devices behind the reception, pretty annoying really. Also, staff weren't the friendliest and my electronic/magnetic key for dorm and safe worked about 10% of the time.

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!

Liked: Great location. The bar area with happy hours and internet access was a great place to meet people.

Disliked: Probably a little too much of a party hostel for me as I wanted to see a lot of the city rather than party hard. The party set getting back at 5am, blind drunk every night was a bit of a nuisance.
