Samuel Webster thinks…

"It has character, friendly staff, clean rooms, generous breakfast, great for budget stays for couples and groups, we were a (respectful) group and found it very quiet and comfortable."

03 March 2011 Jacqueline would recommend this property

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!

Liked: Very helpful and friendly staff! Recommended a great Tapas restaurant and provided information on all the main spots one needs to see while in Barcelona.

Disliked: Maybe it's a European thing but the milk was warm for the cereal. Yuck.

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.
