Hostel is in a great location. Conveniently located near Plaza Catalunya, Arc de Triomf, and the Urquinaona metro station. Lots of places to eat and shop nearby and if you're fine with walking then the beach (Barceloneta), La Rambla, and Casa Batlló (Gaudi House) are very close by as well. The hostel was very spacious and clean. There is a comfortable lounge area with couches and a picnic table, a large kitchen area with everything you might need to cook or store food. Showers and bathrooms are large, clean, and work well. We stayed in a mixed 6-bed which was very spacious. Beds were comfortable with what seemed like semi-memory foam mattresses.In-room lockers were huge and could fit so much. We were lucky and had a giant open area near the back of the room with about four or five french windows. Views look out onto the street. Staff were SO nice and helpful. They even have a paella making class at the hostel. They go out on fun (free) excursions that you can tag along on. Definitely coming back here. Recommended this place to all my friends.
