Liked: The location is very central if you are intersted in being around La Rambla and Pl de Catalunya. The staff is wonderful, the hostel is quiet (which is great for someone who wants to relax), yet offers you the opportunity to meet new pple too..i would definitely come back when im back in Barcelona.

Disliked: The AC in the private room is extremely loud, making us turning it off at night and opening the window: - weather in summer is really hot - window overlooking a main street hence vey noisy in the morning.

Liked: This place is awesome. It has the best location, and is really central. The staff here are also the best I've encountered so far. They will go out of their way to make sure you have a great stay and enjoy Barcelona. The rooms and bathrooms were squeaky clean, and there's aircon on at night if it's still hot. I would have stayed longer, it's that good.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: It was very modern and clean. Cleaners did the shared areas every day! Private twin room was one of 5 in an apartment with lovely shared shower rooms, toilets, kitchen, living area and balcony. There was even a computer in the apartment hallway! Great facilities including an iron and the staff were very nice. Felt really safe as we had keys to 3 different doors before we even got to our room.

Disliked: There were far too many unnecessarily repeated rules and it was quite expensive but considering what we received in return for the price it seemed like good value for money - £26 pppn for a private twin. We were not allowed to control the air conditioning in our own room, any time we wanted it on or the temperature changed we had to go down and ask reception.

Liked: The staff were friendly and helpful at all times, the rooms and bathrooms were of a high quality of cleanliness, especially for a hostel. The location is good for most things in Barcelona and was a pleasant stay throughout and good value for money.

Disliked: For a twin room only getting one key was irritating, but that was the only major complaint.

Liked: All the staff were really friendly and knowledgeable - I really liked the 'map tour' when I arrived, which highlighted loads of things about the area I hadn't got from the guide books. The food recommendations were excellent and the food nights - Pizza night and Tapas night (!) were awesome. It was really clean, and felt very safe. The hostel is really well located as well - plenty of public transport around, and most of the tourist things can be walked to.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Absolutely nice and helpful staff, that helps even with private issues, very clean rooms. The hostel offers one nice "living room" with TV, books, DVDs etc. and a big patio. Different kinds of events (pizza night, tapas night) are offered for a small amount. After check-in a short but appropiate introduction to Barcelona was given in combination with a map containing some insider information. Sometimes it felt like staying in a guest family.

Liked: The staff was useful and friendly (especially Julian). The people that clean the hostel (especially the asian man) are very effective and thorough. The terrace is huge and comfortable (especially to eat). A lot of bathrooms. Wifi was really good. The AC was more than effective. A lot of DVDs available to watch on a big screen. Good activities were planned (Flamenco show).

Disliked: The slight smell of urine (from outside) when you start the ventilation instead of the AC in the room.

Liked: The hostel was really relaxed and was a good place to come back to at the end of the day. As it says it's not a 'Party' hostel but this by no means it is boring. There is plenty of opportunity to meet other travelers but the 'lets go out and get drunk' mentality is not at the forefront of conversation (although on several occasions this was a bi-product of the evenings out!!!) The staff are so so friendly and their ability to remain enthusiastic is fantastic even though they must have repeated themselves with the same generic tourist info for probably the tenth time that day. The hostel is also spotless and seems to have magic fairies doing all the tidying because I never once had to wait to use anything because of 'cleaning in progress'

Disliked: The hostel was fabulous and I would be hard pushed to fault anything about it. The rooms are perhaps a little on the small side but as some fellow travelers agreed the hostel actually tops a lot of hotels we've stayed in (and with a much nicer atmosphere!)

Liked: the staff were THE best ive ever encountered in my travels and the couple that runs the hostel are just lovely. when you sign in, they give you a map and a mini tour of all the man attractions (on the map, not walking)...24h reception is great, kitchen is clean and they do your laundry for you ($)

Disliked: if i HAD to say something, no shelves for the beds...and they kind of scare you with the amount of rules...but most are common courtesy

Liked: Very very clean and powerful airconditioning for the sweltering summers. Excellent location, 15 minutes walking to the gothic quarters and easy public transport access to other parts of the city. Good and detailed introduction to the history of barcelona on arrival :)

Disliked: The wifi takes a long time to connect to on your own device, but once on works quickly. However, desktops are available for use, so not a big worry
