“The staff super nice and helpful”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

The Hostel was simply a great accommodation! The people that worked there were very welcoming, helpful, and patient with the many questions. The price for the hostel for the two nights was not that expensive. clean bed with clean sheets, a blanket, and a pillow. Overall I would recommend this hostel to any of my friend!

I enjoyed the staff and I think the place is good value for money -- it is not a five star hotel, but you will get fair service, food, rooms for the prices they charge.

The place offers lunch/dinner for 9 euros which is quite good.

Nikbor is in a great location in a very nice area of Barcelona. We stayed here for a stag do and for large groups it is perfect.

as far as hostels go it is good, the view from the balconies at the front is amazing. the beds are comfy. the room is reasonably clean. the breakfast isn't great but then the hostel is cheap to stay in.

my only significant issue is security, to get into the hostel you buzz and are automatically let in. you can then ask for any room key and no proof or identification is asked for. so anyone could get into your room at any time. If Nikbor can change this then they would have a fantastic hostel!

The people working there are so nice and helpful! They organise nights out with the others, so it is super easy to have fun and make new friends! The atmosphere was great, the hostel was clean and well situated, the train from the airport goes there. We had a great time in Barcelona!

We stayed for just two night and arrived around 10 in the night.
There was someone on reception to attend us and show us around and make us feel comfortable.
The beds were decent and clean bedding was provided. Lockers were good size. Dorm was big and spacious.
Overall comfortable stay and very well organised.
Staff also provided a lot of info to us and it was on their fingertips !!
Would highly recommend.o

The stay was very good. The only problem was that the 6-bed room we had was supposed to be open all the time - fortunately, we eventually got the key because there was only our 5-people group. This was apparently the only room that could not be locked, but still it seems a bit unsafe to have such an option.

The place has a great location, just perfect - it is close to the centre, about 10 minute walk from Placa de Catalunya. The breakfasts are very good - they are more than just a roll and cheese. The crew is nice and helpful. We liked the overall quality of the kitchen and the reception desk, but the room could use a bit of redecoration. But the window view was just perfect!

There are several parkings around, so it is not that hard to leave a car close to Nikbor. You must just remember too book the place on the parking in advance - it is much cheaper that way.

Nikbor is definitely a place I would consider when coming back to Barcelona.

Stayed three nights in this great hostel. The staff were very helpful and provided tourist information as well as restaurant recommendations and very conveniently located in the Gracia neighborhood . The city was a great experience, and this hostel (and their staff) exceeded expectations. Would stay there again!
