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.

Liked: This place was just fine. I was only there for a night and I picked it because it was close to the train station, which I would be leaving from early the next morning. From that perspective, the location is great. The neighborhood is kind of meh, and I was in a huge dorm room, so atmosphere-wise, it was just okay. They did have free internet and free breakfast though, so that was good! The front desk folks were all very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Nothing, it was fine.

Liked: Everything was well organised. Alberguinn's is structured so that you can go there and rest from your day of sightseeing or night of partying. When you move into the sleeping area, there's total silence (aside from the occaisional snoring person maybe). The breakfast is included although its aim is more to give you a starter and not a total nutritous meal. All the rooms are tidy and nice - to be honest, you really want to go there at the end your day to sleep. Pluss the staff is young and very friendly - they are the same people as you are: traveling, experiencing life and they know what might be of interest to you in the city. I was very pleased with Alberguinn's service to me and a great value for money.

Liked: The receptionist was AMAZING - she was so helpful with any question we had, and took the time to mark an entire map with every place we mentioned (she knew where all of the places were!). Everything was clean and it was so nice that they gave you a locker to keep your stuff in.

Disliked: It would have been nice to have a bathroom that you just shared with the other people in your dorm rather than basically everyone in the hostel. Also, it was very VERY noisy at night...hard to fall asleep and people moving around at all hours of the night.

Liked: Great spot to stay if you're heading off to a football match or need to stay close to the train station. Otherwise it's a bit out of the way if you want to get to La Ramblas or other places like that.
