Emily Dillistone thinks…

"It was extremely cheap, but even so had a great range of facilities available. It was very much in the centre, and right next to the main metro station. Walk-able distance from the beach, but not too…"

Liked: The location was great. Really close to the metro and quite easy to find. It had a really cool atmosphere and the breakfast was delicious.

Disliked: The staff was a little jumbled when we came and forgot to tell us things like we needed to get our linen. It is a huge building and had lots of people staying there which is good if you are wanting to meet others, but makes it hard with only having two showers for the whole floor.

Liked: the location was awesome! it's easy to get to most famous spots. Besides, there're lots of choices for breakfast.

Disliked: we shared a bathroom with another room. the shower space was tiny. At begining, we didn't have toilet paper, but we asked several times until we got the paper. The staff seemed to be too busy to remember everything.

Liked: AMAZING terrace bar. Great breakfast. Right next to metro and walking distance from la Rambla. Safe and fun atmosphere.

Disliked: Reception was not as helpful as I would have liked in planning things to do and see, just pointed to posters on the wall as solution.

Liked: Loved the coffee! Location was great, and very nice atmosphere in the common room.

Disliked: Didn't like having to pay extra for blanket (and top sheet). Didn't like being moved from one 4 bed room with shared bathroom to another 4 bed room where we had to share the bathroom with an extra 4 bed room, so effectively sharing bathroom with 8 even though we had paid an extra 4 euro each to share with only 4 people.

Liked: The breakfast

Disliked: Really noisy, the noisiest Ive stayed in out of 7 hostels recently. Couldnt sleep at all, people yelling and the doors always slam badly. You can hear people on the marble stairwell even if you are far away. The male staff are rude. You have to pay for EVERYTHING...top sheets, internet is 1 euro per about 20 minutes.

Liked: Great place to meet others as it has a large cafeteria style common/breakfast room and there is an awesome rooftop patio with cheap sangria.

Disliked: It's too corporate and not as fun and cute as other places I've stayed. Also, they need to have double bed bunk beds in dorms at a reduced rate for couples or people travelling together looking to share a bunk.

Liked: Very friendly and chatty staff. Though I can speak Castillano, I was asked if I would prefer French or English. Great security. Loved the roof-top bar with reasonably priced drinks and great views, though I suppose it can get quite loud in the summer. I had to catch an early bus to the airport from Plaça Catalunya. The short distance was a boon.

Disliked: My stay was very short. Nothing negative comes to mind.

Liked: Actually I did not stay in this hostel because they have a problem with a group staying in the room they gave me; but the staff reacted very quickly and moved us into another hostel of the group. They payed us the taxi to get there and gave us a 10% of descount! And the best, they gave us a free bar service! I saw the facilities and they are very good as the location.

Disliked: They had no control on the reservations, so they have to move us.

Liked: Beautiful terrace view of the city and the Gaudi building on Passeig de Gracia. Excellent location close to the Passeig de Gracia metro stop and within walking distance of La Rambla and the Barri Gotic. The hostel itself is also very clean (a maid came through and cleaned our 8-bed room and shared bathroom once a day) and has a nice kitchen facility with an excellent common space and bar for travelers to gather in at all times of the day and night to have a drink, relax and get to know one another. Overall, great quality for a very reasonable price.

Disliked: The staff gets a bad rap on HostelBookers for being unhelpful and rude. The reality is that they are more unhelpful than rude although there are so many people working the desk that it's really a mixed bag. Also, there are so many people moving through the hostel (the place has seven floors and who knows how many rooms on each floor) that you're simply not going to get the individual attention with tour recommendations, etc. that you might get at a smaller place.
