Liked: Friendly atmosphere, new, clean and colorful facilities. Air-conditioning in the dorms, which is very nice during the hot summers in Barcelona. Free lockers next to your bed. Bed was extremely comfortable for a 12-bed dorm room. Very well-equipped kitchen and soap provided in the bathroom and showers. Free internet. Nice lounge area. One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in so far!

Disliked: The only thing that is a little inconvenient is the hostel's location. It's perfect if you arrive late at night or depart early in the morning from Barcelona-Sants train station as it is very close. The Montjuic is also in walking distance, but you have to take public transportion in order to get to the main attractions. The area seemed pretty quiet at night, which permitted a good night sleep. As a girl travelling alone I felt absolutley safe in the hostel, but the area was a little too quiet at night.

Disliked: The location isn't very good as it is far away from the touristy area but the train station is a 5 to 10 min walk and from there you can get the metro into town so its fine.

Liked: Free breakfast in the mornings is a great way to start the day. Wireless in the rooms and lobby. Friendly staff. Laundry services (though 3 euros for both washer and dryer, I was desperate enough to use them! Also they provided a free standing hanger to air dry for free)

Disliked: You must use the metro to get pretty much anywhere. It is fairly close and convenient, but because I was there during the week it stopped running at midnight, leaving no choice but to head home early or pay for a cab. (Some fellow travelers walked, but I was by myself, and this didn't seem safe)

The property's response is...

Liked: The place was clean, well cared for and they offered lots of information about things to do in Barcelona. It was nice that they offer personal lockers in the dorm. There was a good vibe of young people there.

Disliked: The location is mediocre. The neighbor is residential and doesn't seem to offer much for the traveler. It is simply too far from the heart of Barcelona's site to make it a desirable place to stay when compared with options that a closer to Las Ramblas and other attractions and don't cost much more.

Liked: Very very kind and helpful staff. Good location if you are arriving at or leaving from Barcelona Sants station. Near camp nou :) breakfast was free flow and quite good. Kitchens and rooms were big and clean, even in he 14 bed mixed dorm. Free Internet (2 terminals) but usually have to wait. Met so many nice and friendly travellers here. Very safe though lockers are too small for backpacks. Bathrooms were spacious and clean with hairdryers even! The best hostel i have stayed at so far - will definitely recommend to my friends.

Disliked: Not many eating places around the area. Lockers were too small for my backpack.

Liked: Alberguinn Youth Hostel was amazing. Our corner room was spacious and had a lot of natural light. Breakfast was really good. I especially liked the chocolate cereal and the nutella for the toast. The staff was really friendly and helpful. A lot of tour and restaurant recommendations were available that made our trip even more fulfilling. Also, we met a lot of friendly people staying in our room with us. It was a great envrionment to live in and have as a base to explore Barcelona.
