Liked: Free locker is very nice. Staff are great. Free wifi was pretty speedy. (Note: iPad, iPhone, iPod users, they're using an older router and you'll want to enter the password with a "$" at the begininning).

Disliked: More hot water! Push button showers are kind of annoying to begin with, but these ones get cold during high use periods.

Liked: The hostel is accessible from 3 different metro stops pl. del centre being the nearest one. I was aware that i was booking a dorm, so der was no disappointments or problems while i was staying der...the room was worth the money i paid and services offered were also excellent. Staff was extremely helpful and kind in offering assistance as much as possible. Every evening they prepared hot chocolate, sangria, tapas, etc... to keep the guests entertained. lounge area was really gud to meet ppl and kitchen was an added advantage to cook ur own meal.... i made new frens, loved my stay in Bcn and enjoyed every moment.. thanks to alberguinn....

Disliked: more socket extension is needed as every1 requires to charge mobiles, cameras....

Liked: The staff was very helpful and friendly. Free internet connection and breakfast. One evening we even had popcorn with a movie. Also, reception was open all day long which made going out in the night easy. Very, Very good indeed!

Disliked: The last night we slept with 10 other women (dorm of 12) and our beds were next to the door. We only tried to sleep for a few hours as this was our last night in Spain and we went out but beside us running in and out the room in the early hours this was done by others too and sleeping was almost impossible. However, this seems to be a common issue when sleeping in a dorm and I'm sure one could get used to it.

Liked: The hostel was super close to the train station and was in between two metro stations. The street below isn't too busy but is almost always quiet at night. We were pick pocketed and the staff was a huge help showing us what to do and what the cheaper parts of town were. The room had a ton of room and was super clean. The was a laundry machine and dryer that you could pay to use which was super convenient. The breakfast was basic but yummy, and there is a big tv that you can watch movies on.

Disliked: the rooms had a ton of people in it which is really annoying. Other than that this hostel was really nice.
