Liked: Israel, the owner, has made a really wonderful Hostel. It's decorated beautifully and is in a really gorgeous old building. Israel himself is such a nice guy willing to help out everybody and anybody with tips of where to go to eat, drink, sightsee, shop tailored to what you are looking for. The organised nights out were great fun as was paella night. The dorms are really comfy and the common room is really easy to either relax and read a book in or get chatting to the other residents. A really great place I couldn't recommend it enough.

Disliked: Nothing really.

Liked: perfect location! one block from a tourist office. 3 minutes walking distance from one of Gaudy's important architectures. This hostel is located inside a gorgeous French apartment looking building and beautiful historical entrance right on the fancy tourist street (Louis Vuitton, Gucci, etc also located on the same street). Surrounding immediate area was upscale, touristy with art Nuveau lamp posts and the closest metro station comes with a lift for a heavy luggage or wheel chair. Inside the hostel, there is a good looking spacious lounge. Their storage room was locked and secure. One of the female staff offered me to change my room because I was booked in a room with 4 other guys. I didn't have to ask them to do so, she made the special consideration spontaneously.

Disliked: not really

Liked: This is a beautiful hostel. The MOST COMFORTABLE HOSTEL BED EVER! The mattress was like a memory foam, very thick and luxurious, much more than what is expected from a hostel. The bathrooms were modern and clean. The front desk staff, especially in the evening were incredibly helpful, the even made several phone calls to local restraunts and stores to make sure they were open (we were there on Easter holiday). The building is stunning with ironwork and marble in the foyer. The location is near Casa Mila in a chic area of the Eixample.

Liked: location and staff, the old house itself

Disliked: The room: it was loud (you wake up every time somoebody is using the bathroom on the floor or just walking around). It had single window looking at a smelly backyard, so you could not open window because of the bad smell.

Liked: You WONT find a better hostel in the whole city, perhaps the whole country. While the property itself is imaculately clean and well stocked with endless extra amenities, the staff is really what makes it stand out. Israel at the desk is made my stay as good as it was. He helped me get my friend a bed and was always talking with and organizing things amongst those staying at the hostel. I've not met a kinder more geniune person working at a hostel. Just getting to talk to that guy is worth staying there alone. He also makes a decent gaucemole. There was also Guillaume, who's partying and clubbing expertise showed me that the Swiss know how to do more than financing and making excellent pocket knives. He brought together all the individuals and groups together and made sure everyone had a good time out on the town. He's a gentleman and a scholar. Stay here, you wont regret it!

Liked: One of the best hostels I ever stayed at. Super clean, not to mention, interior design magazine quality common areas. The free breakfast was good, instant coffee, cereals, bread, ham, cheese, milk, tea. Great outdoor patio to lounge, smoke, take a nap on. Vending machines for late night snacks or mid-day freshly ground espresso. Great satellite radio station playing low throughout the day in the common rooms.The staff was extremely helpful, informative, funny and attentive to my needs. They were always recommending and helping out for things to do and see while putting together fun events like paella/sangria in the hostel and pub crawls. By the end of my stay, they all grew on me so much it was hard to say goodbye.

Disliked: Nothing really. The outdoor patio opens somewhat late in the morning and closes pretty early in the night (im a smoker so this is somewhat biased). The hallways were a little noisy some nights as some of the doors are thin and most of the rooms are in the same hallway as the 24 hr reception.
