Liked: This hostel is a must for anyone staying in Barcelona. It has everything you could want!! Modern and clean, good air con, free dinners, super-hot stove tops for cooking. The best thing though is the staff as they are always up for having fun and getting all the guests involved in activities in and out of the hostel. Partying with Moni, Anderson, Eli, Viridiana and Fanny will make your stay awesome!! Bloody Legends they are!!

Disliked: Nothing to dislike at all!

Liked: Black Swan Hostel is everything you could imagine a hostel being (in a positive way!) - The staff is super nice and friendly, they organize cooking evenings (paella, patatas bravas, spaghetti) and pub crawls (free entries and reduced prized drinks), the athmosphere is so nice and chilled, it was just a perfect stay, I have nothing negative to say about it! The metro station is not even 5 minutes away but you can also easily walk into the city centre (Barri Gothic). Cannot recommend it enough and will definitely stay there again!

Liked: The relaxed atmosphere and the very friendly staff. The rooms were all good and there were secure lockers for each bed in the rooms. They had computer access and free wifi plus a fully equipped kitchen so you could keep your food/drink in the fridge throughout your stay and cook meals whenever you needed. The staff were helpful with ideas of what to do and helped out booking a return taxi to the airport. Excellent stay, will recommend.

Disliked: There was not much we didn't like. The location was tricky to find, but that's probably down to our navigation skills.

Liked: This hostel is modern and well equipped. Location is OK, not near a lot of attractions, but close to metro. The staff were friendly & helpful, especially Fanny. Free activities were available which were good fun. Power in lockers with socket adaptable for different plug types.

Disliked: Nothing significant that was an issue. The kitchen was a bit on the small side, and mens showers smelt slightly of drains. The lockers were in the rooms which was a bit awkward because the coin operation made noise when returning late from a night out.

Liked: I arrived at the Black Swan Hostel after traveling around on my spring break staying in other hostels and this was definitely my favorite. The place has a really nice atmosphere and the staff is super friendly and helpful. The way the hostel is set up makes it easy to meet other travelers and make new friends.

Disliked: The bathrooms were clean but the showers were kind of small and difficult to use and the rooms were cramped but we barely spent any time in the room since there was so much to do in Barcelona so it wasn't that big of a deal.
