Liked: The atmosphere is great! Every night there's something going on in the common area: free sangria night, drinking games, night out. Staff is really helpful and involved. The place is clean and you get value for your money. There's a place to cook and store your food so you don't have to go out to eat every day. I'm definitely staying here again!

Disliked: The rooms aren't locked so in theory everyone could go in (although there are lockers).

Liked: The hostel had an amazing character; the lounge areas and the hallways are all decorated amazingly! The staff are great, they are helpful, social, and make the hostel so much fun. Plus there is free sangria nights! The bedrooms are clean, the showers are clean, there is super markets right around the corner, everything is within walking distance, and it's great for socialising with other travellers.

Disliked: Cara left no negative feedback.

Liked: The owner, or mi madre, and her daughter, Sara, are absolute wonders! They will help you with any information or sort anything out they can for you. I stupidly booked the same beds twice, instead of on our trip in and then out of Barcelona, but they had no problem changing the dates for us. The hostel itself is a really friendly crowd with a great atmosphere. The facilities are good, with a pool table, drinks machine (selling beer as well as soft drinks) and veranda. El Raval is one of the best areas in Barcelona for food, and the hostel is walking distance (15 mins) from Mercat de la Boqueria as well as the MACBA and CCCB both well worth a visit.

Disliked: Gary left no negative feedback.

Liked: The hostel had a good atmosphere and had a free activity each day/night. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Also if you stay here i highly recommend the sunset tour

Disliked: The common area has no aircon just fans and it gets very hot in there. The dorms have aircon but only from 11pm to 9am, and there are no fans at all in the rooms. I highly advise to the property that you install fans.

Liked: Location is just a block away from the Metro and a 15 minute walk from La Rambla. The theme is very sweet and vintage, and the common room has a very homely feel. The staff are very friendly and organise lots of activities, including free sangria, paella cooking classes, bar crawls and daytime parties at the beach. Despite being in the 12 person room it didn't seem crowded and was very clean. The sun terrace is also lovely (but unfortunately closed late at night). There are lots of cafes and restaurants nearby for breakfast and dinner, and the hostel kitchen is very well equipped if you're not eating out.

Disliked: Maybe some prior warning about city tax on their description would be nice, for those unfamiliar with Barcelona regulations

Liked: the place is full of awesome decorations and even has a full kitchen available to use. the rooms were clean and everyone says friendly. On top of that it is a block away from a metro stop and within walking distance to many things like arc de triumf (little longer walk but doable) or casa mila.

Disliked: the bathrooms were not very clean, dirt on shower floors, towels used for walking mats not changed often etc nothing to major

Liked: The location is the best for me out of the many hostels I've stayed in in Barcelona. The tailor's theme to the decor in the common areas is nice, with sewing machines and swathes of cloth &c. (Unfortunately, while the dorms are named after different fabrics, they themselves are bland in the extreme. Hopefully the theme will extend inside them at some stage.) Although not as good as having separate bathrooms, the shower cubicles are large. There is a large terrace, although with limited opening hours.

Disliked: Although the ceilings are high, the vertical space is underused and the bunks are too low to sit up in. The horizontal space is rammed full, though, with there just being a very narrow corridor between two rows of bunks. There is only one public computer, which was extremely slow due to being full of viruses (which the manager refused to believe even though it was totally unambiguous) and which is unavailable when they were showing a film. They charge you extra to pay by card. I realized after booking that they had a maximum age of 35, which I am marginally above; luckily they did not enforce this when I arrived but it is still discriminatory and offensive: I have met some great older characters in hostels and they add to the diversity and get along with younger people perfectly well. I wanted to get a night bus to Madrid, but they were going to charge me five euros just to sit in the common room: in any normal hostel so long as you have left the dorm and checked out there is no problem in using a few hours' worth of oxygen.

Liked: Location is close to many of the attractions. Good atmosphere with friendly staff and interesting fellow travellers. The middle age lady who seems to own the place was pretty nice and gave me a free beer. They have wifi and it was pretty fast. Everyone has a locker which was pretty secure. The reception was 24 hours and i have no problem checking out at 5.00 am.

Disliked: The kitchen and common area was pretty hot. There were problems with the hot water in the shower for 1 or 2 days, not such a big issue in summer though

Liked: The location of the hostel is great. Easy to reach from the airport El prat and close to the center and a metro station. As well I liked the atmosphere and the decoration of the hostel.

Liked: Everything is reasonable walking distance. Over a week, I only took public transport twice!! The bike rental is amazing - 8 euros for 24 hours. The staff are extremely helpful. Not only that, they make you feel like family, no matter how little you're there for. Need to talk to someone about life? Lucas is there. Pepo knows all there is to know about BCN. Everyone working there was really friendly.

Small narow dorms like a train carriage floor space. Not enough showers and tiolets. Only 2 showers for men and toilets as well for entire building.
