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.

Liked: The location of the hostel is just brilliant - very safe neighborhood which is near all the major attractions you should visit while staying in Barcelona. Staff are kind, helpful and some of them have a great sense of humor ;D Nice rooms (even the largest ones) and clean shared bathrooms with a hairdryer included ! ;)

Disliked: Nothing at all! Although it is a mixed hostel, my friend and I were joined by a couple and two girls later on, so it seems that the staff mix people reasonably so that everyone can feel comfortable in the end.

Liked: It was very clean and at breakfast, ham and cheese was served with bread so I was able to take a sandwich for my lunch when I toured the city to keep the costs down. Friendly, fun atmosphere and helpful staff. It's also in a great, safe location away from Las Ramblas but still close to all the main attractions.

Disliked: I had trouble finding it but other than that it was awesome!

Liked: The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to help me. They even tried to put me in a room with other girls, even though it is a mixed hostel. The facilities were nice and clean and the location was good as it was close to one of the main metro stations. It was also just one block away from one of the Gaudi buildings La Pedre. One shower I had was lovely and warm with good water pressure, but the other times the water went cold. I would advise having a shower at times when fewer people are likely to use the hot water up! Breakfast was simple, but nice. Sandwich ham, sliced cheese, bread/toast, cereal, milk and a good selection of teas (including fruit and herbal teas) and coffee, as well as peach and orange juice. The beds were very comfortable and the linen was clean. The bunks are quite high up, but had a handy shelf to store your belongings. There were also big draws under the bottom bunks that could be locked using a padlock. I found this really useful as it is a bit innerving if you have to carry your passport and other valuables everywhere in Barcelona (beware of pickpockets on the underground and in La Rambla!). The price was amazing considering the location and quality of accommodation. I would highly recommend it!

Disliked: Showers were lovely and hot and powerful unless you had one at a high traffic time. Then they went cold!
