I. C. Turner thinks…

"Although it is far from the centre, it is quite near Sants station. The bed was fine and the dorm was fairly spacious."

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.

Liked: the hostel is clean and rooms also, the location is a little bit far from the center, but it was OK because there is a metro station 03 mins walking, the break fast was very good, i really enjoyed it, very quit and comfortable, showers are clean and there is hot water. staff very friendly

Disliked: the location is far a litle bit from the center, but there was à metro station only by 03 mins walking. the atmosphere is not very cool, although, there were only young people (18- 30 years old), but there was a lack of acitivities to facilitate the communication between them.
