Liked: The casual/familiar environment definitely boosted up my verdict on the place.Except for the fellow who snored really loudly all night, the room was more than fair.

Disliked: Breakfast was really poor.

Liked: The location of this property was perfect for me to be able to get up in the morning and go straight out to somewhere fantastic in Barcelona! Being served breakfast on the terrace in the morning was a great start to the day, and then sitting out there at night proved to be a great way to meet other travelers and make new friends. I would definitely recommend this property to others, and cant wait to return :)

Disliked: The hostel had a curfew off 11pm for making any noise in the common room, and so this put a slight downer on the atmosphere. Although I understand that it is important to be quiet, we were constantly reminded despite us not being noisy or heard from any of the bedrooms.

Liked: Pretty excellent location.

Disliked: the security on site is awful. The lockers are a joke and despite the fact that they are supposed to buzz you in anyone can walk in. The free breakfast isn't worth your time. The wifi keeps making you log in all the time. The kitchen is mediocre. Not a great place to meet people since quiet hours starts at 11 and you can't make any noise in the common space.

Liked: The location, funky decoration, the bunk beds had curtains.

Disliked: Showers smelt of drains, balcony was large but could of done with a bar, staff were a bit blunt at times, almost expecting you to know the metro system. Breakfast could of included more fruit, more breakfast tables and bigger common room.

Liked: There was breakfast included and the location wasn't bad.

Disliked: It was really dirty. They only provided you with one sheet so you could only cover the mattress but not yourself as well. The rooms were a plywood death trap. Would only recommend if you are on a really tight budget or have nowhere else to go.

Liked: It had nice character, I really liked bunk beds with the curtains, made being in a room with lots of people more comfortable. Great location too.

Disliked: Very loud party atmosphere, could hear people yelling and talking all day and all night. Not very clean, had bad allergies while I was there.
