Liked: This place was such great value for money. I stayed in the 18 bed dorm but it felt very private, each bed was sectioned off although it was a struggle if you have a top bunk. Great location - the gothic district is beautiful and you're in walking distance of everything - as well as being right outside the metro

Disliked: The free breakfast isn't so great - a lot of mouldy fruit and stale bread. Showers were a bit stop and start but ran hot water so that's more important. It's hostel standards but pretty good for how much you pay for it

Liked: The casual/familiar environment definitely boosted up my verdict on the place. Except for the fellow who snored really loudly all night, the room was more than fair.

Disliked: Breakfast was really poor.

Liked: The location of this property was perfect for me to be able to get up in the morning and go straight out to somewhere fantastic in Barcelona! Being served breakfast on the terrace in the morning was a great start to the day, and then sitting out there at night proved to be a great way to meet other travelers and make new friends. I would definitely recommend this property to others, and cant wait to return :)

Disliked: The hostel had a curfew off 11pm for making any noise in the common room, and so this put a slight downer on the atmosphere. Although I understand that it is important to be quiet, we were constantly reminded despite us not being noisy or heard from any of the bedrooms.

Liked: Pretty excellent location.

Disliked: the security on site is awful. The lockers are a joke and despite the fact that they are supposed to buzz you in anyone can walk in. The free breakfast isn't worth your time. The wifi keeps making you log in all the time. The kitchen is mediocre. Not a great place to meet people since quiet hours starts at 11 and you can't make any noise in the common space.

Liked: The location, funky decoration, the bunk beds had curtains.

Disliked: Showers smelt of drains, balcony was large but could of done with a bar, staff were a bit blunt at times, almost expecting you to know the metro system. Breakfast could of included more fruit, more breakfast tables and bigger common room.

Liked: There was breakfast included and the location wasn't bad.

Disliked: It was really dirty. They only provided you with one sheet so you could only cover the mattress but not yourself as well. The rooms were a plywood death trap. Would only recommend if you are on a really tight budget or have nowhere else to go.

Liked: It had nice character, I really liked bunk beds with the curtains, made being in a room with lots of people more comfortable. Great location too.

Disliked: Very loud party atmosphere, could hear people yelling and talking all day and all night. Not very clean, had bad allergies while I was there.

Liked: Really nice hostel! Don't forget this is an hoStel: so, of course you're in a room of 14 people, but this is not a problem for me! The beds provide a lot of comfort, and everything is clean. Hot showers 24/24, no curefew and a lot of interesting people to meet!

Disliked: Almost nothing. Maybe just that the breakfast ends at 10', quite early on vacation.

Liked: The location was perfect. Walking distance to so many places and located right off of the metro made it a very easy traveling hub. The staff was friendly and the a/c actually worked (sometimes) in the room!

Disliked: I was told while booking my stay that if I prepaid, I'd be able to get a refund if I had to decided to change the duration of my stay. Upon asking to change my reservation so I could change hostels, they refused any refund. I would've been find with being charged maybe one or two days, but no refund was offered whatsoever with little to no effort to even attempt it.

Liked: The location is perfect. The gothic area has lots on offer and the beach is also within walking distance.

Disliked: There was absolutely no vibe here. Downstairs in the common area there is no airconditioning so its like an oven. The kitchen is really tiny and also doesnt have a stove or an oven. This hostel has the opportunity to be really great but they need to host some events to get guests involved.

Liked: Amazing location at the edge of Old City and next to the Cathedral. Plenty of things to do in the area. Youth hostel atmosphere. Fun and rowdy and loud. Always busy. Beds were bunks with curtains. Very cute and romantic. Allowed us to store our luggage in lockers after check-out. Provided breakfast. Had free guided tours available.
