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.

Liked: This hostel was one of the best I've ever stayed in. I stayed in a 14-bed room and met some great people there. (Though I would of course recommend ear plugs.) There was a room on the second floor that was great for socializing and that also had a kitchen that could be used to make lunch/dinner. The breakfast wasn't bad: white bread that could be toasted, cereal, milk, juice, butter, jam, packaged muffins and biscuits. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable. The location was good - a five to ten minute walk to placa catalunya, and close to a couple gaudi buildings. It was in the newer part of the city, though; some might prefer to be in the gothic district. There's a terrace on the roof where they serve coffee and drinks, which would be nice most of the year (it was cold, windy, and rainy when I was there). Also, the tour guide company (Tour Me Out) that is advertised in the hostel is really good. They have walking tours twice a day and they pick you up at the hostel. One's a Gaudi tour, the other a tour of the gothic district. They're free and last about 2.5 hours (a tip is expected at the end, I gave 5 euro, which is a tiny bit more than average, I think, but definitely worth it). I really enjoyed the tours despite the rain, so I bet they're even better in the sun. The company also does Party Tours in the evening for 12 euro, which is a lot of fun and a good way to meet people, esp if you're traveling alone or with a friend.

Disliked: Sometimes the elevators took a long time to get to you and one of them didn't seem to work on all the floors - not a big deal, though.

Liked: The location was perfect. It was on one of the most beautiful streets with the best shopping and right near the metro. It was very safe and people were friendly. Really liked this hostel, I would recommend it to others.

Disliked: The room for 8 people was really small - could have been bigger. The hostel promotes free wifi but you can only access it on 2 floors of the building. Also the breakfast wasn't good, could have been a little better.
