Liked: Great value for money, just a block up from the beach which is perfect and a nice big kitchen for cooking, wifi worked well but unfortunately didn't reach the my room on the first floor

Disliked: The place was very very quiet and had zero atmosphere, not the best place for a single back packer if you want to meet people. Also a bit of a walk to the train station, about 20mins

Liked: Big room

Disliked: My friend and I got probably the biggest room in the hostel. It was the room for destricted persons and ther was no problem with that. But the light in bathroom had realy short timer. It has turned off every 30s. I had trobels with turning sensor on again, i can not imagine how somebody with moving problems will handel that...?

Liked: The garden space in the back

Disliked: Broken internet. The stingiest push-to-use showers ever. Common area dominated by a blaring TV. Lack of power plugs anywhere useful, either in rooms or in the common area.

Liked: Very close to the beach. Supermarket located across the street which was very cheap. Roof top views - check out floor 6 : )

Disliked: Very quiet hostel. Not good for socialising. Only 2 staff working the entire 8 days we were there, our room was cleaned for the first time on day 7. Huge hostel with potential for being a fun place to stay.

Liked: This hostel is a bit strange at first. There is a kitchen downstairs in the basement, which is hard to find. The hostel is in a great location though and is great value for money. Perhaps come with at least one other friend as it can be a bit unsocial, but my friend and I managed to find a good group! :)

Disliked: Lack of kitchen equipment, the one guy who runs the whole hostel also seems to disappear when you need him!

Liked: It was clean and nice, the location was great - close to the supermarkets, the beach, the restaurants and the shopping area. The rooms were comfortable with a big shower, fridge, microwave and nice nice beds - the rooms could be compared to a hotel. Eventhough it's 1 hour away with train to Barcelona, it's very easy to get there.

Disliked: There isn't a lot of sociallife in the hostel itself becasue there were very few people staying there.

Liked: The hostel is new and very clean. It is huge and so close to the beach and all other things you may need including restaurants and grocery stores. The owner is very nice and accommodating. It is one of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed in. AND the best price.

Disliked: Because it is new, it is a bit empty, so bring friends :)

Liked: Really nice place, clean and friendly. We were in a 5 bed dorm, but the owner let us have the room to ourselves for our whole stay for no extra cost! Absolutely amaxing bathroom, lockers in rooms, we had a balcony, nice lobby, and really close to the beach. Good direct link to barcelona via train, however calella is quite far out.

Disliked: No kitchen. Everything else was great
