"Only stayed one night, but it's a great spot if you need to catch an early train from the Sants station. Free breakfast was also convenient."

Liked: Very home with kitchen and nice common room, computers, television, and socializing. Breakfast provided, which I loved since no other hostel I stayed at provided this, and it was a good breakfast. Common bathrooms for girls and boys, clean and spacious. Bedrooms have lockers and comfortable beds. VERY close to the central train station.

Disliked: Location was a little tricky to find, but if you follow their directions you will find it easy.

Liked: El hostal esta a dos minutos de la estacion del metro y a 5 de la estacion del tren lo que hace que llegues facilmente a los destinos que quieras visitar. La seguridad es muy buena y el staff es muy amable. Las habitaciones son amplias, limpias, seguras y tienen espacio suficiene apra poner tus cosas. Los lockers igual son espaciosos. Cada dia tienen una actividad en la tarde lo cual es bueno si planeas quedarte en el hostal aunque podrian amenarlas un poco mas.

Disliked: El hostal me gusto mucho, podrían completar un poquito mas el desayuno con fruta o yogurt pues es solo cereal y pan, (aunque me gusto mucho que dieran crema de cacao para el pan.

Liked: Unfortunately I forgot to ask for her name, but the girl at the desk with all the sweet tats was so helpful. Asked her for a map, and she marked down close Metro Lines, places I should visit,etc. Any questions I had, she helped me out with. I stayed in a dorm of 14 and it wasn't bad. Everyone has their own decent size locker. Upon arrival, sheets were given so you know they were clean. I would reccomend this to anyone traveling to Barcelona

Disliked: It was a little tricky to find. Its on a corner on the second floor. I passed it twice, but it didnt seem like a bad location so I didnt really mind it.

Liked: I got to the hostel at 6:30 in the morning, and as soon as I got there I was welcomed, I was able to leave my luggage and the staff was very helpful and welcoming. I liked the fact each person is given a individual locker and a key, to get in the hostels and rooms and your own locker key. I was able to leave important things in there like passport and some cash. There are multiple showers and toilets in bathroom and I never had to wait to use either of them. The rooms are big, and there are cool and very breezy and comfortable to sleep. Next to each bed there is a personal lamp which I was very impressed with. There are so many power extensions that every one can recharge their electronic gadgets and you never have to wait of use them. Also the continental breakfast was also very good with good variety and there were people there ready to clean the tables as soon as someone was finished that way the tables and the area was always clean no matter when you came in to eat, that was very impressive. The location was not in the heart of downtown and the stores in the area were not open late night, but still it was close to the Sants Station and in the day you would have access to pretty much everything. I like also the fact that they had a lot of information on things to do and they had a bulletin board that lists things that were happening that day so it gave you a lot options on what to do and gave you ideas on activities and places to go where you can meet other like minded travellers like yourself. There are a lot of things I like that i can keep writing on, the things I wrote about were what had impressed me the most. But overall, what puts this place over the top is really the staff. Each and everyone of them were very friendly, and helpful and just had a great attitude and vibe that made this hostel very good. I would most definently stay here again.

Disliked: I didn't like that the reception closed at midnight (officially) but the staff was very cool and let you finish your things on the internet and would not kick you out. There was only 1 laundy and dryer, so you would have to wait to use it at times, and also they have a rule that you cannot use it after 10pm which I didn't like since there is only one.

Liked: We stayed for 4 nights here. The staff are very friendly and helpful! (thanks a lot); location is good, just few minutes walk from 3 station exits (one of which is the main station that connect you to airport or other main cities); the room is clear and enough space with large locker (big backpack, no problem); also there is a kitchen with sufficient equipments as well.

Disliked: There are only 2 computers (with internet access) in the common area, sometime have to wait for a relatively long time to use. but it's not really a big problem; there seems not much restaurant to choose around at night; and the door closer is too noise when opening, you will surely be woken up by it when sleeping (even you open it very carefully...)

Liked: The staff was friendly, helful and kind. I liked the included breakfast and the common areas- kitchen/ livingroom.

Disliked: I thought the womens bathroom could be a little cleaner. The air conditioning in my room was on very high most mornings and it was a little uncomfortable. One suggestion- pan integral or a cereales like muesli offered at breakfast would be nice.

Liked: The friendly staff, the breakfast included in the price (goo and dcomplete), the atmosphere of the hostel and the security (lockers, magnetic card...)

Disliked: The lack of information about the price of the parking service (about 15€ for 1 day), but that's really all and actually it's not that expensive in comparison with the prices you can find in the city.

Liked: The staff were very very friendly and helpfull! (Thank you Martha, Maria and Leo). The hostel is very close to Sants Station which was perfect because I had an early morning flight out & could catch the first train. Even though it was away from the city center, it is well served by the metro with stations a few minutes away. The individual lockers in the rooms are most def a plus and the hostel was clean.

Liked: Free basic breakfast, nice info board in the living room with tips and an activity each night. DVDs to watch on the TV, lockers, individual lights, pretty much has everything you would need for a basic stay in a hostel. Clean and great staff!

Disliked: Nothing really! The only problem was other guests -- had a huge group of teeny bopper school excursion kids who were pretty annoying, but that's no fault of the hostel...
