Liked: The staff was friendly, helful and kind. I liked the included breakfast and the common areas- kitchen/ livingroom.

Disliked: I thought the womens bathroom could be a little cleaner. The air conditioning in my room was on very high most mornings and it was a little uncomfortable. One suggestion- pan integral or a cereales like muesli offered at breakfast would be nice.

Hi !

Thanks for rating Alberguinn Youth Hostel!
And thanks for the breakfast suggestions, we'll see what we can do! ;)
You should have tell us about the A/C in the room, we could have switched it off or put it softer. Please understand that it is difficult to keep a good temperature for everyone in a shared dorm , as some people feel hot and ask for lower a/c temperature when others think it's chilly, but we try to find a balance and keep everyone happy and comfortable! ;)

Liked: really nice staff , really helpful

Disliked: showers , hard to meet new people , long way from downtown so you always had to be back by 12 midnight because metro stops at 12 midnight

Hello!
Thanks for your comments!
We are very sorry we forgot to give you this information at the check-in, but of course there are alternative ways to the metro to come back at night! You should have asked at the front desk ! ;)
The metro stops running at midnight during the week, but after that you can use the "night Buses", buses running every 20 minutes coming to the hostel from the center, until the metro starts again.
Anyway, we hope you had a great stay in Barcelona!

Liked: good connections to public transport. safe (card access, individual lockers, video-cameras). free luggage storage. breakfast included (basic, but can't complain). nice and helpful staff. useful facilities (computers, tv, social space, wifi, kitchen, refrigerator etc.). overall, a good organization & work automation, best practice for the hostel business :)

Disliked: location is near the rail & bus station, but not so close to the historic center.a bit of exterior noise during the night.

Liked: The friendly staff, the breakfast included in the price (goo and dcomplete), the atmosphere of the hostel and the security (lockers, magnetic card...)

Disliked: The lack of information about the price of the parking service (about 15€ for 1 day), but that's really all and actually it's not that expensive in comparison with the prices you can find in the city.

Liked: Extremely nice and helpful staff, easy to find, good location near Sants Estación.

Disliked: The dormitory noisy all night but that's probably the issue of personal culture of other travellers.
