Liked: It was very spacious and light, and quite central. Staff was very helpful and although we didn't make use of the kitchen it looked really good and clean! The whole hostel was very clean, even the shared bathrooms.

Disliked: The rooms were not very well insulated, sound would seep through very easily. Also the emergency exit sign was very bright and a little annoying. It probably needs to be there but in a small room it was quite annoying. Also, there was free wi-fi but there were no computers that you could use.

Liked: The staff were very friendly and helpful. And the location is great, just by a metro station,

Disliked: It's not something I disliked, but I just thought I'd mention that I had a bit of trouble finding the hostel! I got to the right number onh the street but it's not very noticable as it's actually on the first floor of the building and there are no signs for the hostel.

Liked: The AWA Hostel (Casa Gracia) is a lovely hostel, located in one of the most exclusive districts in Barcelona, within walking distance of just about everything. It's like staying in a hostel on 5th Ave in NYC! Barcelona is a very walkable city, but it will take longer to walk to some areas than others, but the metro is right outside with a main hub 4 streets away, making it nearly effortless to travel from the airport to the hostel. The staff is very welcoming and takes the time to check that every guest is comfortable.

Disliked: I can't really complain about anything. If I had to choose something, it would be that the top bunks are really high up and I had a room on the 1st floor, near the common area, which could get very loud at times at night, but this is to be expected in a hostel.

Liked: It was incredibly clean (the cleaners were always up to something). They have a brilliant guy who comes in most nights and has organised events for the guests. He is one of the best blokes we've met, makes the stay sensational. Couldn't recommend it more, would definitely go back.

Disliked: Our room was very pink!!!! :p

Liked: Great staff! Brilliant location. The free continental breakfast was good. Clean facilities (especially the toilets/showers). Free Wifi...and generally, there are many people to meet in a relaxing lounge.

Disliked: Stayed in a 4-bed dorm with bunk beds. They are quite small, but very comfortable. It's really the only thing that can be criticised. Rather choose the bottom beds, because they're more spacious with drawers underneath.

Liked: Very centrally located, had a certain charm to it. The staff were friendly, the place itself was very clean...I'd definitely stay there again!

Disliked: There was a mixup with the key on our second night there...some random stranger walked into our room because they programmed his key with our room number by mistake, and our card wouldn't work the next morning (cuz it had been cancelled when the other card had been programmed)...but this was an honest mistake and wasn't such a big deal. They were appropriately apologetic about what had happened. :)

Liked: Such a lovely, spacious and clean old apartment, nicely decorate, well-stocked kitchen and comfortable lounge area, free wifi. Because it was a quiet time of year it felt like our own house, especially when Israel cooked us dinner. Twice. (Thank you so much!) The hostel is in a not-so-touristy, interesting barrio, and walking distance to all the Gaudi attractions.

Disliked: Having no laundry facilities was a giant pain. Common area shuts at midnight, so if you're sharing a room, you can't stay up late (come on, it's Barcelona!).
