Reviewed 8 December 2013

Had a decent experience here back in May. Lots of character, but VERY hard to sleep on the first floor. Highly recommend staying on an above floor. Wifi can be spotty at best. The front staff is rather helpful however and speaks plenty of languages..well priced when I went ($12 a night).

Stayed: May 2013, travelled solo

The staff there was really nice and helpful, the neighborhood - Las Ramblas - is one of the funniest in Barcelona. Totally recommend to stay there.
You can stay on the streets around and drink some beers even inside the hostel with other guests.

The staff were not very helpful and blew us off when we had questions. Some of the guys at the desk actually made us feel very uncomfortable. The room was like a hallway so we could not walk by each other easily. It has good sized lockers and the having wifi was good. The breakfast was only cereal. the location was pretty good. There was only one bathroom that was also connected to the shower so when someone was showering you basically could not use the toilet or sink. We are not very picky people and we loved everywhere else we have stayed.

Room Tip: I think the corner room we statyed in was much smaller than the others.

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!
