“Very nice!! Totally worth it!”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

Very nice hostel!

Rooms and bathroom very clean. Nice lounge/common area with tv, ping pong table, cheap beer and sangria.

Rooms are not so big, but it's enough if you want a clean, quiet and comfortable place to sleep.

All facilities: free Wifi, free computer, bar, kitchen, activities every day and night. Grocery store on the corner.

Not so far from La Rambla, in a quiet area.

I totally recommend this place. Really worth it for the price. Staff very friendly.

My place if I go back to Barcelona.

I hadn't stayed in a hostel in a few years and i was very pleased with HelloBCN. It was in a great location (just 5-10 mins walk from La Ramblas), was secure with wristbands for access to the building and good safe lockers in our room. The internet was free and the staff were also very friendly and helpful. I would have no hesitation in staying again.

Once thing i would mention is, as with the whole of Barcelona, be very wary of pickpockets. Despite being ultra careful, i still managed to be relieved of my blackberry and my friend had 50 Euro stolen outside the Apollo nightclub just around the corner from the hostel. Try and get taxi's to drop you right to the door of the hostel to avoid walking through the side streets, particularly at night. This is no reflection on the hostel at all however as Barcelona is without doubt the worlds capital from street robbery.

the hostel seemed very secure, we had wristbands that let us in to the hostel, into our room and into the locker in the room. everyone had their own locker. rooms were clean. bathrooms were clean. common room/kitchen area was very social. free internet use on computers in the lobby. free luggage leave service on check out day. location was close to trains, so no problems getting around.

I'm not a hostel fan, yet if you want to meet other travellers during your visit to Barcelona, do stay here. The place is averagely clean and the bus stop that takes you to the beach is a walk away. I especially love the morning, a big melting pot during breakfast. However, call me old fashion but I did get a bit of a shock when I found naked guys in the "ladies bathroom".

I´ve used the kitchen every day and i didn´t had any problem with that. The beds are good, a bit noisy but ok... The bathroom is very clean, the laundry prooved to be very usefull. The beakfast's very good as well.
In simple words: "Best hostel on my backpack"

Having backpacked around the world for a year, I stayed in a lot of hostels. This one was amongst the cleanest that I have stayed in. The location could not have been more ideal, as it was only a 5-10 minute walk to Las Ramblas/Placa Reial, around the corner from a Metro stop and walking distance to the beach. The staff were not overly friendly, though it was easy to meet other people in the lobby. Would definitely recommend this and stay here again.
