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.

Disliked: Bathrooms are not always clean.

Liked: Fast WIFI and 1 laptop to use. Very modern building and great location. 15min walk to the main city street - la rambla. Great party atmosphere everyday, with something new to do. The beds are new and comfortable. The lockers available with a key.

Disliked: Charge additional for the use of credit card, whereas other hostels in barcelona do not. (stayed in 4 of them). WIFI only works in ground floor. 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.

Liked: It's a nice hostel. It's definately not a party hostel; if you want to relax and do nothing you can, but there is also the option to go on the hostel organised bar outings. The rooms are always clean and on a quiet street at night time.

Disliked: It takes atleast 25 mins walk to get to the main area, but maybe that's good because you are not always overcowded with people like in las ramblas.

Liked: It's cheap to start. Apparently it's very new so it's getting itself started, and honestly I think they are doing an AMAZING JOB! Seriously these guys seem to have it down, and i'm very impressed. I would highly recommend for both penny pinchers & people who are looking to have a good time.

Disliked: The kitchen. It's tiny. During dinner time you have to wait to cook, I mean it isn't terrible but having everyone making their food at the same time becomes a bit hard. I'd recommend cooking early, because it'll be full until bedtime.

Liked: Easy to meet people. Great common area. Self catering kitchen {though no oven} and lots of markets near by. Friendly staff and clean. WiFi is great and there is a computer terminal as well.

Disliked: Desperatly needs Air Conditioning in rooms and common area. Badly. The bathroom in the room has no lock on it which makes it less than private feeling given each room has 8 bunks in it.

Liked: One of the best hostels I've stayed at. The common room area is super cool and trendy. Always very clean. The staff were so lovely, helpful and fun! Bathrooms and rooms were always clean. There was something (clubbing/bar visits) organised nearly every night so it was helpful to know where to go out and to be with a big fun group!

Liked: The hostel was very clean and new. The atmosphere is really inviting and is well decorated. There is always someone on staff to let you in the building. There is also a staff member that coordinates "outings" that way you can experience Barcelona nightlife. They also have maps and suggest tours to you depending what time of the year you stay.

Disliked: The WIFI was only available downstairs and not in the rooms. It would have been nice to have the WIFI upstairs in the rooms, that way we could message and post from our own beds if we didn't feel like being downstairs.

Liked: What an amaizing place just a few minutes walk from the centre of Barcelona - pristine clean and caring owners. It has it own theme, so initially you might confuse it with the tailors shop, so the hostel stand out from others by having its own unforgettable face. You can cook your own meals here so save money on restaurants! And the other pleasing thing is that despite the fact of it being in the center, it´s on a quiet road, without disturbance of discos and drunken people passing by, but I would still advise to bring earplugs just in case if the people you share room with are snoring, but this could happen in any hostel anyway. Good value for money! Ideal for students and people on a low budjet who do not mind sharing... Overall, it is a very positive impression. I would strongly advise to chose this place. Hopefully, you have the same appreciation.

Disliked: Albina left no negative feedback.

09 June 2013 Robert would recommend this property

Liked: It is brand new, thus absolutely clean (it actually smells new). Good ideas in the interior design (they preserved and re-used old objects they had found in the former tailor's shop). Spacious and comfortable common area linked to the kitchen, so you can have a chat with the others while making your meal. Proximity to airport (Areobus stop is about 50 meters from hostel entrance). Staff very kind and helpful and speak languages (not only English but some French too!) A very good value for money!

Disliked: They charged me 3 euros for storing my backpack for a couple of hours in a locker room that had no lock on its door.
