location, location, location!
price value, price value, price value!
Even cheaper, if you just walk in

ok, service is poor and breakfast is a joke
But it's fine for being a cheap hostel. What do you expect?

This place is really terrible and I would not recommend it to anyone. The place was quite dirty and messy. The bathrooms and the toilets were also quite dirty. Unfortunately there was not any hot water and there were simply notes on doors apologizing about the problem.

However the staff was quite nice and friendly. The location is also good.

I would never recommend a place like that. I made a reservation 4 months before my arrival and when I got there, my room was not what I had booked. The place is dirty, noisy and the breakfast wich is supposed to be included, is a pigs-meal in a dirty kitchen. Don't ever go there. There are so much better places in Barcelona.

Absolute Dump. Do not visit. 3/4 showers did not work. Other shower had was blocked, and also had wee at the bottom. No pillows on arrival. Walls/floors disgraceful. Stayed in 10 hostels in the past few weeks. Worst so far. Not very expensive but not worth 50p a night.

There's not much to say about this hostel as the price/night says it all. Thin mattresses, grotty walls, missing floorboards... It was all as expected. The room smelled really damp and mouldy everytime we'd come back from a day out and had shut the windows to prevent theft, but opening them again solved the problem. As a room of 4, we shared one bathroom, and this bathroom exceeded expectations, apart from the water drainage that made a really loud, strange sound. The shower pressure was good, lighting was great, no mould in corners or on walls, clean.
The only negative about this hostel is the security. Our room was located on the 1st floor while the reception was located on the 2nd, thus misleading people to our room in the middle of the night thinking it was the reception. On one occasion, someone actually tried to force their way into our room at 2am, but thankfully we'd locked it.
Overall, the atmosphere is quite friendly but not overly so. Your privacy and personal space are respected. Breakfast is a bit of a joke, though. My advice: grab a pastry and coffee further down the road.
