Liked: Location was good, staff were helpful.

Disliked: As it was the weekend of the kings cup final and a long weekend, the prices were increased to 55 euros for a 10 bed door instead of the usual 6 euros. The bathrooms were very basic and only 3 bathrooms for all the dorm rooms on the floor. The dorm room was also very noisy- people rummaging through their bags with the light on for 1 hour at 1am and then again early in the morning.

Liked: We reserved 5 nights, paid for 3 and stayed only one. The room we got was without window, next to laundry room that was working all night, the mattress was extremely uncomfortable and the toilets and kitchen were dirty.

Disliked: The stuff was unpleasant, if not rude. Never had worst experience actually. Even if it was for free, we would rather give 10 euros extra and get a decent sleep. The toilets were so dirt we went to a coffee bar next door when we need it.

Liked: It has very good staff!helpfull guys!!location is great-that's true, but a bit noisy and I am not sure about staying there in winter, cause the balcony didn't close all the way. As for summer-early autumn stay-is a good idea!

Disliked: Not enough wall-sockets...in a room for 6 there were 2 of them only and both for bottom bunks...a bit of a problem And there is no private light, so either you turn on the light for all, or simply don't..I had not a nice neighbour, who went to bed at 21 and complained about the light, but again it's peoples factor In general-it is worth its money!the price is really fair

Liked: The hostel is near the sagrada familia, and close to a metro station. The receptionist was very kind with us

Disliked: The door of the bathroom (a shared bathroom) was broken, so you had to have a shower with the open door. There wasn't an elevator, so i had to take the luggage to the 4th floor by myself

Liked: The location was great (near metro stop/food/shopping/bars) and the staff was very friendly. This was my first time staying in a hostel and the staff was very accommodating.

Disliked: The first night we arrived we had to wait 30 minutes for someone to buzz us in to the building. They might have been out or sleeping.

Liked: The location was nice.

Disliked: The hall smelled aweful. They put up a few air fresheners to cover the smell, but they didn't really help. The bed in our room was broken, and the shower head in the bathroom didn't stay on the wall (I had to hold it up and keep turning off the water so it wouldn't spray everywhere. It even hit me on the head the first time it fell down). Hopefully you won't get booked in a room high up, since they don't have elevators. Overall, €50 (including taxes and fees) was not worth it. Maybe if it was only €20 it would have been a better deal. I found a lot of nice hotels around the same area for around €50 a night.
