This was the first hostel I had ever stayed in and it set my expectations very high. We were there for 4 nights so we booked a 4 bedroom (all female) dorm. The lockers were very spacious in each room - although the rooms themselves were not that large. The shower stall door were that warped glass effect so you could still see into them. The beds were comfortable enough and everything was pretty clean. The staff was awesome! We did the day trip to the beach, led by one of the hostel workers, and we went to the clubs every night. A plus about this hostel is that one of the staff will go with you to the clubs (on the bus etc) and you dont have to wait in line to get it. You are on your own to get back but at least you dont have to worry about how to get there and you are with a group of people staying at the same place. You get bracelet/wristbands for your keys to the hostel. They look like watches but they are super helpful because you can't lose it. It's a great location because it's located two blocks from the underground on a very well-lit street. You do have to pass a sketchy casino but there are security guards. The kitchen is pretty much always open, we cooked in there a couple times. There is a "bar" in the lobby that serve sangria and beer. Pretty decent prices for both. Overall, the security/safety was good, cleanliness good, staff excellent, location good, atmosphere excellent. I would recommend this hostel to ANY person traveling to barcelona on a budget who is looking for fun.
