Liked: it is located near two metro stations (and near the main station of the city); it is clean and secured; breakfast included in the price; nice staff

Disliked: Maybe a little bit too far from the city centre, so we have to take the metro to go downtown. The streets surrounding youth hostel are particularly noisy (especially early on mornings)

Liked: The location is perfect, very neat to Santz station. And people were kind and friendly, the kitchen was kept clean, bathroom was clean enough, good-working hair dryer, and comfortable bed. I'm totally satisfied.

Disliked: I felt a little unsafe around here midnight, but if you come back earlier it does not matter.

Liked: The staff was extremely friendly, willing to help, and available 24 hours. The free wifi was a huge plus. I also liked that it was fairly small, so it was easy to get to know other guests. It was very clean and in a safe location.

Disliked: While the location is very close to two metro stations (and from there a 15 minute ride into downtown), it's possible that we could have actually saved money by staying somewhere closer to downtown for more per night since we wouldn't have needed to buy so many metro passes. The breakfast was, for lack of a better word, lame. White bread, nutella and cornflakes? Really? We had thought we could save money by having breakfast included, but we ended up going elsewhere in the mornings. All in all though, those two things are relatively minor and I thought the hostel was great.

Liked: Its close to a metro station, although this station is a bit far from the centre. The hostel is clean and safe. The location looks a bit dangerous but it is not. The staff are friendly and helpfull. We have lockers close to the beds. Bathroom and bedrooms are clean and the linen as well. The common area is friendly and the wifi and the computers are very helpfull! If you are backpacking and are not worried about comfort, I will totally recommend this place!

Disliked: It is a bit far from the centre!

Liked: The front desk worker was always friendly and willing to help. The common area was always clean and very nicely decorated. The free wiki and two computers was a HUGE help. The rooms were clean, and so were the bathrooms. Absolutely no complaints, would recommend to anyone traveling!

Disliked: The location was a bit far from everything but with a metro stop only several blocks away, it turned out to be fine.

Liked: The staff was very helpful and friendly. We appreciated the free breakfast though it is simple. The free lockers are very useful.

Disliked: It's a bit of a walk (20-30 minutes) from the center of town and even farther from places like Park Guell and the Sagrada Familia.
