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.

Liked: The hostel is fully equipped with a kitchen, washing machine and dryer, free internet computers and wifi, TV and a 24 h very helpful receptionist. And breakfast is included! Further they offer some free entertainment at the evening e.g. sangria workshop (make it and drink it). Anyway the staff is really helpful. They have a lot of free maps and can show you almost everything there is in Barcelona.

Disliked: Like it always is in a big dorm. It's kind of noisy. But what do you expect when sleeping with 10 other guys in a room? Well, if you have a light sleep pack in some earplugs.
