Liked: Loved the individual lockers with key cards. Amazing concept and very neat. This place is so close to the beach, it's wonderful. People say that the beach is man-made, so it isn't that nice. But that depends what you compare it to; I thought they were awesome.

Disliked: Bathrooms seemed like they could be fresher.

Liked: I most liked about the hostel the great people you meet there! The stuff makes sure that you are having a great time and is there for you, if you need any help! The hostel is really close to the beach and you can reach the metro that brings you to the city within 5 Minutes. I would definatly stay at this hostel again! :)

Liked: Awesome atmosphere, everything beach themed, close to the beach, fantastic friendly staff, good breakfast

Disliked: Disturbed by people coming into the room at 4am and basically having a party in the room while we were trying to sleep, and ignored our requests that they let us sleep. However this is no way the fault of the hostel, just unfortunate that there were these very rude people.

Liked: Great common areas and good clean bathrooms with a large amount of showers. The female Swedish promoter (sorry can´t remember her name) that took us out to Shoko on Monday night was amazing and got us a great deal!!

Disliked: The location is a 4km walk from the gothic quarter. We also stayed 4 nights at another hostel in the gothic quarter for the same price. The hostel also allows young school groups to stay there which is very annoying and takes away from the experience. We also had a bad experience with a promoter (brown curly hair) - she made us leave for the club about 2 hours earlier than everyone wanted to go promising to get us a good deal and did not even give us the drinks.

Liked: Amazing place to stay!! 15 minutes walk from Opium and Choko, close to pubs and bars. Located in a very safe and lighted district two blocks from the beach. Had a lot of free space areas for companies up to 20 people. Stuff is very friendly and envolvent))

Disliked: It is usual for hostels, but seems to be too small rooms. I stayed in 6 bed dorm and it was fine, because there were only my friend and one more guy. Anyway if someone wants to open baggage, others should be out or stay on beds.

Liked: Close to beach and grocery store. Area was pretty nice. Breakfast was decent. Dinner can be bought as well. The keycard lockers were cool.

Disliked: Bit far from most attractions, although the metro is close and efficient. Couldn't connect to WiFi, others had problems as well. There are only 2 public computers to use. Can be a bit of a party hostel. A dude was passed out in the toilet stall in the dark. Also, lights in rooms automatically go out at 23:00, only reading and night lights remain.

Liked: This is a great hostel. Very clean and modern with a fantastic atmosphere!

Disliked: The only thing I would say is that it is not a hostel for someone who is looking for a quiet, relaxing place to stay. It is most suitable for people who want to party all night and sleep/sunbathe all day.

Liked: Everything was vibrant clean and very inviting. A close walk to the beach and a five minute walk to the metro. Lots to offer such as a large kitchen space, computers, washer and dryer, and clean bathrooms. Seemed like there was always something going on every night downstairs. Fun and exciting atmosphere for any type of traveler. The rooms were cleaned daily and sheets and pillows were free. The temperature of the rooms were on the cooler side but not cold. The front desk was very helpful and friendly at all times of the day.

Disliked: The only problem I encountered was when I tried doing laundry and they ran out of coins for the machine. It wasn't a big deal but that was the only snag I ran into. The front desk helped out with other laundry mats in the area.

Liked: The staff are super cool. The hostel is very nice and well taken care of. The staff always ask if I need anything or if the hostel is good enough. Just great service. 5 minute walk to the beach is awesome, so if you want to relax you can get to some of the less busier beaches. Poblenou station is pretty close, so connecting to downtown and other subway stops is super easy. Great cooking facilities, love the cheap meals that the bar crawl people provide every night. The lounge areas also allow for making new friends and just relaxing times.

Disliked: The poblenou area occasionally smells like sewage or waste when you walk around. If you go out to the bars, coming back either involves a cab or walking a longer distance than if you stayed downtown. However the atmosphere in this hostel is definitely worth the stay.

Liked: The hostel has only recently opened and is therefore very clean and functional. I particularly liked the individual lockers that are secured with your room key, meaning you can feel safe about leaving valuables in the busy rooms. The hostel is located near to the beach and to Poblenou metro station, maybe 10 minutes by metro from the centre of Barcelona. Being out of the main part of the city meant that it was quiet at night but still accessible. We were in Barcelona for the Primavera Sound festival and the hostel is super close to the festival site; two metro stops or a 15 minute walk.

Disliked: Nothing terrible, just a few niggles like the lockers not working when we first got there (they did get fixed quickly though) and the constant lack of toilet paper in the bathrooms.

Liked: Really light and spacious common areas, good kitchen facilities and cool decor. Staff were very friendly and welcoming throughout our stay. Toilets and shower facilities excellent and clean. Great location just five minutes' walk from the beach,.

Disliked: The wi-fi was intermittent - it only worked properly for two of the six days we were there. There were also a few problems with the access card system - on more than one occasion it stopped working either for the locker under the bed or for the door to the dormitory (which was particularly annoying after coming out of the shower!). The staff were very helpful and apologetic, though.

Liked: This property is about an hour walk from La Rambla, which is amazing when the weather is warm and full of sunshine. Otherwise, it is a five minute walk from the beach (even the nude one ;)). There is a supermarket open 6days of the week right around the corner, as well as shops all along Poblenou. The hostel is a great location if you don't mind being outside of the centre of the city. There are three particular staff members that I found were SPECTACULAR, and they are Ivy, Teddy and Xavi. They were always extremely helpful, friendly and went beyond their duties as a staff member and became friends. I would come back to Barcelona just to see those three people! Bravo. <3

Disliked: The Wi-Fi connection was constantly down, although that wasn't terribly important to me as I was there to see Barcelona! Sometimes the washrooms were extremely dirty and toilet paper-less as they are only cleaned 1-2 times a day. Also, there needs to be more staff present during the evening hours as sometimes there is only 1 person, and that 1 staff member can easily be overwhelmed... plus, if they need a break who is going to be there while they are taking a break?
