Liked: The location. Very center! And the bed there's a curtain that gives everyone a privacy even when you are 10 in the room. I like the atmosphere of the hostel. It is clean and well-modern.

Disliked: Different room for the shower room and toilette but not really a big deal.

Liked: Location was good.

Disliked: The bathrooms rival those of a well-to-do prison. There is also a mysterious vinegary stench in the hallways and in the rooms. Maybe 10 years ago this was a good place, but these days with so many good hostels at this price point this place is simply not competitive.

Liked: Great location. Everyone is young and cute. Big focus on partying. The bar/restaurant downstairs is great. Staff is really nice. Breakfast is suuuper.

Disliked: Smell. I was on the 4th floor, and the whole floor always smelled like poop honestly. They need more ventilation in the bathroom/shower rooms to control the smell. I stayed in a 12 person dorm room which mostly smelled like feet. I didn't like being on the top bunk cause there isn't anywhere to put your things when you're changing. The lockers under the beds are hugely inconvenient cause they make you buy a lock and key to use them. Then you have to roll it out from under the bed and open this big lid and it's a whole annoying process.

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.
