Siobhan Davis thinks…

"We were welcomed with a free upgrade to a private en-suite room, which was a great start! Really reasonable rates for the location - which is fabulously central. So easy to walk everywhere or hop on…"

Liked: Much better than other barcelona hostels I've stayed in. Kitchen is nice, tea and coffee provided. Beautiful terrace in the sun. They organise activities though none on the nights I stayed, the other guests had enjoyed them though.

Disliked: Rooms fairly small, squeaky bunk beds. No free food shelf in th fridge, needs sorting - there was three month old food in there.

22 April 2013 Kamila would recommend this property

Liked: Very cosy and comfortable. Clean rooms and other facilities. Staff was very helpful (always there to answer all your questios, also one step ahead with some useful tips and event organization). Moreover: location, location, location! 5min away from the train station (passeig de gracia), just a stroll from Placa de Catalunya and Barri Gotic. Basically RECOMMENDED!

Disliked: nothing about the property, but it was the 1st time in over 5 years of staying at hostels (always dorm rooms), that we had such a terrible roommate - big Asian guy, who snored louder than a F1 bolid or a plane, which is about to take off. Ear plugs did not help at all (he even snored while lying prone!)

Liked: For my first hostel stay ever, i was spoiled !! Not only was the living space entirely clean and equipped but the staff was exceptionally great !! The location is only a plus, right down the street from Paseo de Gracia . I definitely recommend staying here and participating in the night activities like flamenco show and homemade paella restaurant like i did, but whatever questions you have the staff is readily available 24/7.

Disliked: Everything went great.

Liked: Everything. It is the cleanest and most beautifully furnished hostel i have been. A Canadian i have been staying in hostels the last 9 years travelling 1 to 3 monthsat a time from Europe to Asia to North and South America this is the best and nicest hostel I have evev stayed. The nicest staff you can ever have and they are always ready to help even you have asked the same question before, they stilll enthusiastically answer your questions. They have amazing information on where to eat (local goes there only) for fabulous prices. Most of all they are so clean you can eat off the floor!! I feel like I am staying in a 4.5 star hotel at hostel prices and with wonderful people. I am planning to come back just to Barcelona as it is a great city with such wonderful clean hostel to stay in and so so centrally located......Thanks Alexia, Madi and Julian you made my stay such a wonderful experience....
