The atmosphere was fantastic here and I loved my short stay of only 1 night. BBQ on roof top terrace was pretty nice and breakfast wasnt amazin but what you get at most hostel included breakfasts. Tea & Coffee available all day is really cool. Its nice and close to the town and markets etc.

We stayed here for 5 nights in Barcelona. When we arrived the air conditioning was broken - absolute hell! It was so hot in the room (we were in the only room no the ground floor) and opening the windows made no difference because the windows opened onto a conservatory owned by somebody else, not actually the outside air! Luckily it was fixed by the time we returned that night, but it did break a few more times during our stay but only for a few hours at a time. The receptionist was lovely and very helpful with all if our questions. The hostel is in an excellent location to Las Ramblas, couldn't be better! However, if you are thinking of visiting Barceloneta (beach and expensive nightclubs area) it is about a 30 minute walk from here. The walk means you see lots if Barcelona, but after a night out it means you will probably have to get a taxi home for abou 10-15 euros. The hostel was really really good for meeting other people, we were in a room of 8 and it was great. However, just one bathroom is inside each room and at times it was difficult to share it between 8, especially when there was 7 girls!

This is a good central hostel with friendly staff. Free breakfast isn't amazing but it keeps you going. Good wifi and locker space locked by a key card so your stuff feels safe. Shower is small and only 1 per floor (one for boys and one for girls). Dorms are mixed sex.

I've traveller throughout Europe for the year and this would have to be the most expensive AND the worst hostel I've stayed in. The shower facilities are dodge - one on each floor for each male and female. The one on my floor has a glass door that doesn't shut properly so other than people being able to look through the glass they can also look through the crack in the door. The shower area itself is so narrow that I can stand in there with arms by side. If I want to move I need to leave the shower area and detach shower head. The terrace is a narrow area where the air con pumps out hot air. Plus it seems to be in a shady area with porn shows, peep shows and other adult type stores. Would definitely look into staying elsewhere next time. I wouldn't mind if I'd paid €15 or something but to pay €28 for this is not cool.
