Liked: It was very clean and all things were in order. Cosy basic hostel with a kitchen and enough of showers. Location is good as well. They even had a hairdryer in the girls bathroom.

Disliked: Strange bathroom doors... not too much space in the toilet. The lockers are funny plastic cupboards, they don't seem so difficult to break (but you can lock them with either your own lock or borrow from the hostel) - they always have someone sitting behind the desk at the door so it's quite safe anyway.

Liked: It was really cheap and I got a small room rather than a dorm for the same price. The staff were nice. It was a pretty room and close enough to the centre.

Disliked: It seemed more like a guesthouse than a hostel - it wasn't very social, there was no breakfast etc. The biggest thing for me however was that the rooms did not lock and there were no lockers so I was really concerned about the security of my things.

The property's response is...

Liked: Good location in a safe and quiet neighborhood, close to the metro station and within walking distance to central Barcelona. Great for short-term stays. For longer stays I recommend other places with bigger rooms and ensuite bathrooms.

Disliked: No shelving space in the shared bathroom, which can be a little inconvenient for toiletries

Liked: The staff was really nice and outgoing. You got to meet people really quickly and it's not too far to walk to the centre. The people from the reception were very welcoming, they offered me ice cream and sangria and turned on an English Tv programm, so I could understand more. :)

Disliked: Lockers for suitcases in the big rooms were too small. Not everybody could talk English but they could manage it somehow.

Liked: Quiet hostel, easy to reach by foot from Barcelona Bus Station (Estacion Nord) and Barcelona's center. Rooms have balconies :) But use air conditioners if the street's too loud for you to sleep with open balconies.

Disliked: Rooms face rather noisy street (but so does everything in Barcelona).

Liked: The location is great. It's in a very nice building, just a few minutes walk from Passeig de Gracia, and right by a metro station. There are a few supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, and everything you need just right outside the door. Staff is always there, so you don't have to worry about arriving or wanting to check-out at any time. The kitchen was well-stocked with what you need to cook with, there are both free computers and wi-fi, and there is a lounge room with TV.

Disliked: There is only air conditioning in the rooms (but thank goodness it's at least in the rooms!) so the rest of the place is muggy and uncomfortable in the summer; the bathroom can get quite crowded if more than 2 people want to be in there. There are however, two individual bathrooms as well. The fridge was a little gross and packed full. There was a sign saying to label your stuff because they clean it out once a week, but I think it needs to be cleaned out more often. Staff is not friendly, but definitely helped with anything that I asked for.

Liked: The location was alright as it was close to metro stations. Also there was free internet access

Disliked: The lockers provided were not safe, I was given a padlock for it but there was nowhere to attach it to. The toilets were ridiculous...knees touched the door so I had to sit side on. Could see through gap in door. Shower screen fell down as I showered. People were allowed to check in a ě in the morning and were loud and receptionist did nothing about it. Didnt like time there at all.

Liked: close to the centre, a stone's throw to the metro station,

Disliked: really noisy at night - you can hear cars and motorbikes all the night, closing the window doesn't help at all. also, walls are rather thin, you hear everything what happens in the next room

Liked: They provided big and easy to use lockers. The kitchen was big and well equiped, also they had a good system for how to store food and to leave food behind for other travellers if you no longer wanted yours. The bathrooms were clean as were the rooms. The staff were very helpful and friendly. One night we got caught in a rain storm and they washed and dried our clothes for us for free.

Disliked: The tiny toilet cubicles were annoying, but nothing worth not staying at the hostel for.
