Liked: Everything was fantastic! Amazing location, breakfast included, great people!

Disliked: Rooms were hot and stuffy. Air con would be on sometimes at night but then turn off half way through the night and it wouldn't turn back on making the rooms very hot.

Liked: the bunks are far enough apart so you don't hit your head when you're on the bottom bunk. Also the location is good for shopping and very close to the metro. the facilities were clean and they had good service.

Disliked: there were a lot of people in this area so it was crowded as soon as you go out the door. not a huge deal though, it might have been the time of year

Liked: The location is ideal!

Disliked: The lack of organisation with room bookings which resulted in us having to change rooms before 10am every morning of our stay - we book 3 beds for 3 nights and had to change room 3 times and having to leave our bags in the luggage room every time; and not what one apology for the inconvenience from the staff! Also lots of hidden costs like having to pay for sheets, only 20min of free internet for the whole stay...

Liked: The location is THE BEST. It is so central and so convenient to everything. The train station and metro are both nearby and central barca is always reachable on foot. Plus, it is located at a super safe area, unlike the too central and unsafe places. Good value for money so highly recommended :)

Disliked: the 12 mixed dorm is a little crowded but its not too bad.

Liked: The property is in an ideal area; only a 5 minute walk to La Rambla and a good amount of cheap restaurants are all within walking distance. The rooms are cleaned daily which is excellent, I didn't find that the rooms were too cramped either. The atmosphere was brilliant, I met lots of cool people from all over the world and the staff were always upbeat and friendly. 24 hour reception/no curfew was definitely handy as the Barcelona night life is awesome...The hostel also ran a number of tours for during the day and at night which was great for meeting new people. The terrace was my favourite part of the Hostel, beautiful views from up there onto Barcelona and the terrace bar has Sangria on tap! Over all, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this Hostel.

Liked: good price (20 eu) for the very convenient location- very near the metro stop of Passeig de Gracia, which has important gaudi sites and fashion stores and in center of barcelona.

Disliked: it´s not a hostel where you make friends. the general atmosphere is rather impersonal. ppl don´t usually talk to each other in the dorm and in the dining area. breakfast and checkout at 10am.

Liked: i loved the location of this hostel. it was also very clean. the breakfast was good considering how many people they had to feed, i had no problems with this hostel at all.

Disliked: the things i dislike do not have to do with the hostel. the people staying in my room were horrible. all of you backpackers out there, please be courteous to your fellow travellers when you are in hostels. dont be super loud at 4 in the morning when you get in and dont turn the lights on at that time, you have a bedside light. also, dont leave your crap all over the floors so that they are in the way of others

Liked: Pretty good location, except if you want to go to the beach, then it's ages away. But it is close to several supermarkets, plus the main market street La Rambla. They have a few games in the common room which is nice. Breakfast was nice, with cereal, toast and oranges.

Disliked: You needed to show a pass to the reception every time you walked in. It was a pretty flimsy piece of cardboard and really annoying to carry around with you everywhere. I didn't bring mine once and the staff member wasn't very happy. I showed him that I had my room key, and he said it wasn't good enough. When I said it didn't fit comfortably in my bag he told me to stick it to my forehead next time. I didn't really appreciate that. Other than that most of the staff were fine. The elevators were a little tricky, they didn't necessarily go in the direction you want them to, so you'd have to go all the way down first and then go up.

Liked: the breakfast was really good, the location is awesome, it was always clean.

Disliked: it was good hostel overall and we would stay there again, but, at check in they didnt tell us that there would be a 1 euro per person per night charge if you pay by credit card, this turned out to be nearly 5% of our bill, the kitchen was way too small for how many people the hostel holds.

Liked: Very close, really doesn't take long to walk to the centre even though the map says it does.

Disliked: Nothing, to be picky the ensuite bathroom in the 6 bed dorms, mainly the shower, is small but that's being really fussy.

Liked: Excellent location, just a short walk from las ramblas and gothic quarter to explore! Metro stop just outside the entrance, so great links for going to explore other areas of the city! Friendly and helpful staff, good kitchen facilities (although could have been a little bigger for number of people) and nice common room areas to chat and mingle with other travellers. Really good continental breakfast included.Regular live music in the bar, and a fantastic terrace with a brilliant view of the surrounding area-definitely a great selling point!! Clean bathroom and dorm with good locker space (but would recommend earplugs if a bigger dorm with 12 beds :)). Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely go again :)!!

Disliked: Nothing
