Liked: Good social atmosphere in common areas. Staff good at suggesting places to do/things to see and helping if you ask.

Disliked: Can be hectic at times, trying to check in/out, ask questions of staff as it is a huge place with so many people. More often than not, I had a cold shower as everyone was wanting to shower at similar times and the hot water system could not cope

Liked: Sehr gute Lage, direkt am Plaza Catalunya. Very good and big lockers!! Clean, good breakfast. If you are a group it is a very good hostel with a good bar and a lot of space in the common romm.

Disliked: The WIFI was not working in the room. It is a big hostel, probably a bit difficult to get in contact with people if you travel alone.

Liked: The bar and common room make this hostel so much fun to party at and meet other travelers. Curtained cubby like bunks are great so personal lights don't bother other people.

Disliked: Although all of the security measures are in place such as locked cages to put all of your things in and controlled access to each floor this hostel was still very bad for having things stolen. Numerous people had phones and wallets stolen and I had my jacket stolen from my room. I highly suggest locking EVERYTHING up and keeping an eye on you things. Also a bit far from the beach but definitely walkable

Liked: Can´t beat the price and location. Many thoughtful services and amenities like privacy curtain on bed, hot showers, fridges, laundry, postage service.

Disliked: Frat-house atmosphere, lots of drink discounts lends to an immature clinetele. Mediocre food, way too expensive to use slow Internet, long lines at check-in, dorm areas and rooms SMELL very strongly of moldy clothes and dead rat.

Liked: Great location at Playa Catalunya; helpful staff; excellent common area to make friends; connected bar; privacy in dorm rooms and convenient bathroom areas (showers have dry and wet sections)

Disliked: Because it is so large, you feel disconnected to other travelers in general. Long lines at the reception usually. You had to pay for many things and laundry machine didn't work/was very expensive.

Liked: The hostel was very clean and I liked the large secure lockers for all of your belongings. I was robbed whilst out in Barcelona and the staff were very helpful and allowed me to use the front desk phone and computer to cancel my card.

Disliked: For some reason the internet worked fine in the bar area for me but whilst I could connect in my room, I couldn't actually get any access.
