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…"

10 April 2012 Farrah would recommend this property

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.

Liked: Staff are OK, location, cleanliness, value for money, very secure even not using locker (I might had luck with the roomates I had), but everything ran just fine.. will be back for sure.

Disliked: The main complain will be that lockers are not big enough depending on what you are carrying. Isn't the hostel fault, but, very young students around... lol

Liked: The location was perfect, the staff were very helpful and friendly, and I thought the free breakfast was quite good - I had a great stay. I thought it was a wonderful value, and I would definitely stay here again if I ever come back to Barcelona. Just be aware that there are apparently two "Passeig de Gracia 33" - the hostel is just around the corner once you pass the first building numbered 33. I had no trouble finding it, but it would have been nice to know beforehand.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
