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!)
