Liked: 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 noisy at night. The standard of English of the staff was excellent. I'm planning on going back to Barcelona and will most likely stay here again! Would recommend.

Disliked: More showers would have been nice. Also, not being able to bring guests in meant my brother had to wait in the lobby for ages while I checked in.

Liked: The location is awesome

Disliked: The staff is soo slow. It takes like 15mins to check in 1 person. I needed help to book museum tickets and reception - the guy whose almost bold said hell come up after he's checked everyone in. 20mins later still nothing. I waited another 10mins and he wasn't there he had left for the day. I couldn't get the @ on the keyboard to work and because they took forever I missed out on the museum because I was strapped for time! Wifi is soo bad as well.. The breakfast was really bad just cereal and bread

Liked: Nice common areas with lots of seating and TV etc. Good laundry facilities, friendly atmosphere.

Disliked: Showers were a bit dirty and difficult to use as there were no shelves in the shower to store clothes, so you had to get out the shower naked. No plugs near beds made it impossible to charge the phone without risking leaving it somewhere where it could be stolen.

Liked: Nothing. Its a large sterile hostel with unhelpful staff and horrible beds. Stay somewhere else. I've tried 6 hostels in the city over my times here and this is by far the worst.

Disliked: WIFI DOES NOT WORK. SERIOUSLY SLOW UNHELPFUL STAFF atmosphere is sterile and very difficult to talk to anyone as people are so desperately trying to get the wifi to work. The breakfast is a joke. White bread and cornflakes, warm milk and no water. You have to pay for a top sheet, and a blanket. The noise the beds make make it impossible to sleep well. Avoid at all costs

Liked: Really good Hostel, definitely recommend it. Had a 8 bed mixed room and it was pretty spacious. It was well organised and clean.

Disliked: Would have been nice to have some events, breakfast alone wasn't very good for meeting people. Also, beds didn't have blankets, you're just given one sheet which you have to choose to use as a bed sheet or a crappy blanket.

Liked: The location was very central and the common space was very large. Also the rooftoop terrace with a bar/music was very cool.

Disliked: There was a large tour gorup of teenagers who arrived the same day as us so that was a bit hectic, especially in the luggage storage area.

Liked: Good location to see all the main attractions in the city. Helpful and friendly staff. Flet like my belongings were safe. Decent shower and bathroom facilities. The New Europe Sandemans walking tour the hostel advertises was exceptionally good, especially our tour guide Tommy. Also went on the Tapas tour in the evening which was great too.

Disliked: Very large hostel lacking in atmosphere. Would not recommend for solo travellers as it appears that most people who stay there are big groups of friends only coming to the city for the nightlife. Arrived at 3 in the morning to find that someone was sleeping in my allocated bed. On return to the room the next day all my stuff I'd left on the bed and my sheets had been taken. However when I spoke to reception about this they were extremely apologetic and gave me clean sheets and retrived my stuff from lost property. Airconditioning was dripping into a bucket in the middle of the room making quite a lot of noise when trying to sleep.

Liked: It's location is really good.

Disliked: The hostel charges you for a bed sheet which is ridiculous, all you're given is a sheet to cover the mattress and a pillow. The staff were quite rude and really not helpful, and the hostel wasn't very clean. Someone had thrown up in the hostel in one of the hallways and it wasn't cleaned up until late the next morning. There was also no atmosphere in the social area, everyone just seemed to be on a school trip. Definitely the worst hostel I've ever stayed in.
