Kabul party hostel is such a lively, vibrant, happening hostel that it's really beyond words to express. Always something interesting is happening. The vibe is magical, the environment is enchanting. The super helpful staffs are just a knock away. The beautiful terrace offers not only great view but a great place to hang around and party. The location is just...

Stayed here because it was cheap but the value for money is amazing! The bar offers 1 euro sangria and beer, I didn't even bother with buying drinks at the grocery store. The rooftop terrace gives you an amazing view; location is absolutely perfect about 10 min walk from the beach. Very clean, saw the cleaning ladies working non stop....

Me and my friends have stayed in this hostel for 6 nights. The room was small for 8 beds,in my opinion, but always clean. the bathroom was in common to the whole floor but I've always found it very clean and comfortable. Every night there was a free dinner and after that music, drink games and music! The breakfast was...

My first time staying at a hostel, and it wasn't much of a hit. Smell of toilet ine the entrence is not a welcoming sign. Also, pool table costs money, where i'd think it should be free. And, most important, gender inequality is a major issue. Around 15 guys there is only 1 girl.

Cool place, super easy to meet new people as the common area and bar are huge. Staff were so helpful with any request, got to check in early, printed bus tickets for me, gave good recommendations on where to eat and party, all round friendly crew. Only gave 4 stars because the beds didn't have proper sheets.

This hostel seemed to be very popular with backpackers, although it did still suit me and three other friends going to Barcelona for a city break. The location is amazing, next to La Rambla and the hostel is set on a beautiful square 'Placa Reial' which has lovely restaurants and some live entertainers. Rooms were small but clean, however don't...

The worst hostel I've stayed at in my three month Europe trip. As mentioned in several other comments, the beds are terrible. No sheet provided (2 euros if you want to rent it) and the blanket didn't look washed. I stayed in the 24 bed room where it was impossible to get even a few hours of decent sleep. The...

I chose this Hostel because of the good prices and excellent location. That is it. Everything else was absolutely disgusting, including bedrooms and bathroom. I might have ignored all if only you had clean bed sheets , or even bed sheets at all. Seriously, wash your blankets, you have all sorts of bugs in there.

My wife and I stayed in a 20 person bunk room, which was noisy. We didn't sleep super well every night. But they give free breakfast and a free pasta dinner, and the location is unreal in the Plaza Real right next to the Rambla. It's worth a stay. Get a room with less people than the 20.

Firstly, to anyone who complains about this place I don't get it, party hostel is right in the name! And that's what this place is, a fun party hostel for young people. Great location right near la rambla and the big market (la boqueria?), and the metro too. Met some really cool people here, rooms were a little crowded and...
