Liked: even in a 12 bed dorm, you have your own privacy. beds are good and clean, lines are good and clean and the badroom, which is the most important thing is super clean. the location is 10 min away from las ramblas, but is an excelent choice when you are traveling in a low budget!

Disliked: the manager, marcelo he is so rude. he doesn like to talk or to explain. he put on his earphones and he watches tv during business hrs. he gets mad when he is interuptted by an absurd question!

Backpacking / gap year

Liked: Lockers under bends, shades on beds, plenty of computers, plenty of showers, very clean.

Disliked: Annoying staff, horrible atmosphere, you have to pay for sheets, at 11 pm there is a lights out policy and you can no longer use the computers, kitchen, and other facilities. Reception is not really 24 hr, and they take a long time to open the door at night because they are too busy with other recreational activities to open the door. They also do not give a key.

Liked: Great new, clean, nice hostel! Afternoon and night staff were extremely helpful and fun!

Disliked: Morning staff was a little pushy at check out. Kicked me off of the computers and threw away my (properly named/dated) food from the fridge! Besides the morning guy the staff was great though...

Liked: Each of the beds has curtains surrounding it, so a bit of privacy is awarded, even in a room that holds many people. The internet was provided free of charge, which was really helpful. Kitchen for public use, complete with a microwave and fridge.

Disliked: The staff was dismissive and caustic. For a hostel that prides itself on being "hip" and has buddhist-inspired art on the walls, this was totally unexpected. Also, the girl's showers are really awkward, since the glass is semi-transparent and there aren't any shower curtains. I know that Spaniards are more okay with nudity (as per all the nude beaches in Barcelona), but for travelers who don't share that mentality, showering was a stressful experience. Paint the glass or put in curtains.

Liked: This was definitely the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in. The curtains around the bed made it feel very private and the locker under the bed made it easy to secure my belongings. The staff seemed a little unfriendly at first but after awhile they warmed up. The location was away from the crazy tourism but an easy walk to most of the main sights.

Disliked: There was a fair bit of street noise but no more than is to be expected really. If you want to meet people and socialize at the hostel then this is not the place for you. I prefer to have a quiet and clean place to return to after being outall day so it was perfect for me.
