“Very nice, clean & friendly hostel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

1st thing is it is really close to the Barca Sants station - but getting there the 1st time could be a bit tricky, but not a sweat for most travellers. Just follow the road signs and ask the staff for the adrdess & between which streets/ roads the hostel falls. It's also a nice 20-30 min walk away from Camp Nou (& the walk down Rambla de Brasil is awesome!)!!

Very clean hostel, nice spacious rooms with bunks and individual lockers. Also persona bed-light near every bed. Room key allows you entry/ exit at any point of time.

Staff: Very friendly and eager to help. The lady who was there during my trip (Juanita i think) will take trouble of pointing out all places to go / how etc on the map.

Facilities: As is present in most decent hostels...sheets etc included. Towels can be hired/ sold for Eu 1/ Eu 2. Plus they serve a simple convenient breakfast too.

Best part: The Lounge! it was always teeming with conversations of travellersfrom across the world! 2 computers with internet + free wifi + tv/ books/ audio-video cds, a kitchen holding a fridge for the beer and the coke...the lounge was the best thing when u came back at night to chill out over beer with the fellow-travellers! i just loved it n made great buddies there! only thing is - since it's a residential area, the lounge area has to be closed down by 1 am (but while i was there we always managed to stretch it beyond 2 i think :))...but it's definitely became the center of 'us' travellers.

Would defintiely recommend it to travellers coming into Barca for 2-5 days!

Room Tip: When in Barca - dont waste your time inside the rooms! And when in Alberguinn, spend time in the lou...

A great hostel very close to Barcelona Santa Station. About a 10 minute walk. Very secure and clean facilities. Did not stay for included breakfast but lockers included and towels provided on request as well as laundry available (plus dryer). Very happy and friendly staff.

I spent two nights here. I booked it because of it's proximity to Barcelona Sants station. It's a little bit out of the centre but it's close to three metro stations so getting anywhere is easy. The staff were friendly, the rooms were HUGE and there were plenty of showers, toilets etc. There are hairdryers in the girls toilets which is handy. The free breakfast was adequate but there are limited cooking facilities to make your own meal (no stove and just a small conventional oven). At least look at what there is before you buy something to cook so you don't buy food you can't cook there. There is a flight of stairs to get to it, but it's not too much, even with luggage. Free wifi was great and the whole place was really clean.

The hostel is situated at a very convenient location. Coming from the airport all you have to do is take the airport train directly to Barcleona Sants and walk about 10 minutes (if you dont get lost) to the hostel.

I enjoyed my stay (3nights) at Alberguinn. The hostel staff are friendly and open to any questions and requests. The common room is large and comfortable, with TV, CD player, books and free internet. Breakfast is pretty standard, with cereal, milk, coffee, jam and toast. The kitchen is clean and has a big bench for food preparation.

I like the generous head room on the bunk beds and the head lamp is a real bonus. The only question I have about the hostel is that they have a separate room for guests with physical disability, but why is there no lift to take them from the ground floor to the hostel??

Room Tip: Try to get a bed near the window in Room 6 (if i remember correctly)

I stayed one week in this hostel and really enjoyed it! I was looking for a hostel next to the Sants train station and I chose this one because it seemed to be a very clean hostel and indeed it is! I also liked their big living-room allowing you to meet all the other guests easily. But the thing I liked the most is the staff! Everybody is very welcoming and always helpful. Next time I am going to Barcelona I already know where I will stay.

I often travel all over europe and I always choose hostels. Alberguinn was like the best place ever to stay. It's very clean, the staff is friendly and always kind, the rooms are big and the bathrooms are extremely clean. They have a kitchen in which you can eat and cook and they also have a big dining room with TV in which you can talk with all the other guests. So my advice is: if you are in Barcelona, go to Alberguinn!!!

I stayed there for four nights and would stay there again. It can be tricky to find though! Its location seems far from the city centre but the metro system is fantastic (get a T-10 pass) and there are stations everywhere. It's also quite easy to walk wherever you need to go and take in several sights in one day. The staff were friendly, helpful in giving advice and direction, and the facilities were wonderful. Decent-sized lockers, keycard security at front door, dorm areas, and to each room is nice.

Separate washrooms for men and women, more than enough showers for all, good Wi-Fi connection and a lounge area that is always teeming with conversations and people to meet. Beds and linens were clean, washrooms were clean. Only one washer/dryer but I had no problem getting a load done.

It's located in more of a local, residential area than a tourist area so you can take in some culture and avoid the chaos.

Room Tip: Save money on eating out, use the fridge/kitchen!
