Liked: Location was very central.

Disliked: The room was very hot and the heaters were on. I asked for them to be turned off and was told that it was centrally controlled and they would turn off in 1 hour. They were on all night, every night. I was told to open the window, however, my window opened to a central corridor that did not get air from the outside and did nothing to cool the room off. The pictures on the internet of rooms with big windows are a bit decieving.

Liked: the staff was fantastic! the girls that were at the front desk were willing to help with anything. Free computer and wifi, walking tours, great location! It was definitely worth the price I paid.

Disliked: it's also a dormitory, so it gets a little loud at times, but they provided earplugs to help with that. also, my bathroom could've been a little cleaner.

Liked: The great thing about Hostel is first of all its location-very close to the trendy neighborhood of Gracia, with its cool bars and boutique shops. Also, and very important to us, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, and although it was a bedroom of 6 beds the room was clean and very specious always. the staff was very friendly and always willing to help with information and tips where to go in the city and the overall atmosphere was very pleasant , I will definitely come back again!

Liked: other than the construction that was going on, i did not have any issue. i would have prefered a better wifi service, or else computers with internet access in the hostel. there were a few in the neighboring hostel we could use, but they were always full and the other hostelers were not kind to the nikbor´s using the facilities. (they were hostel! haha) the staff was very accomedating though.
