Liked: The staff here are simply the best! They are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They know everything about the city and will go above and beyond to help you have the best possible stay in Barcelona.

Disliked: When we visited there was an odd group of people staying -- too many young (under 18) and too many older people. It was very difficult to get to know people in the hostel as everyone seemed to keep to themselves.

Liked: Exceptionally clean and comfortable facilities and dorms. Respectful guests who socialized in common areas and were quiet in the dorms at a reasonable hour. Staff was always freindly and helpful. Location is convenient to train station but be sure to have directions or if cannot find call them and they will meet you. Wonderful neighborhood shops gave a real taste of Barcelona life and culture.I came for one night and stayed for three. Very good value and quality.

Disliked: The only issue I encountered was getting directions to the property from locals.

Liked: Friendly staff, free breakfast, lots of showers/sinks to use, luggage lock in room

Disliked: The dryer didn't work and left all of our clothes wet, which was highly inconvenient. The location also isn't that great, it's close to the Sants station, which is nice but you have to take the metro to get anywhere really interesting

Liked: The staff was absolutely friendly and helpful. The place was clean, modern and very well designed. The bathrooms were big enough so you would never had to wait to use a shower or a toilet. The location was great since it was very near the Sants train station and Plaça del Centre metro station.

Disliked: I think everything was ok and I will return to this place.

Liked: Very secure and safe - lockers and keycards to enter your room. Close to Barcelona Sants railway station. There were several toilet and shower cubicles so never had to wait.

Disliked: Staff were helpful upon request but not very friendly. Usually a sound sleeper but the combination of creaky bunk beds, metallic lockers and a group of noisy Germans made it difficult to sleep.

Liked: Great value for one of the cheapest hostels in Barcelona. Simple, clean, inviting, free internet, fairly comfortable bed, etc. Nice lounge space.

Disliked: Free breakfast was rather poor (bread and maybe cereal), bust mostly not really organizing social events. They are written on a chalkboard in the main room but never seem to materialize. Staff should be more enthusiastic about pulling this together.
