“Clean well run hostel wit loads of activities ”
Reviewed 2 March 2013 via mobile

Fantastic hostel in a great location, only 5 min walk to las ramblas and the gothic area. Very clean and run really well. Loads of free activities and a cheap bar. Free breakfast too! Gym and laundry services are very handy too. Oh and theres a lift

We kicked off our trip in Barca, and HelloBCN was a great place to start. Good location, near a metro, about a 15 minute walk to the beach. The kitchen was clean, there's a bar in the common room, and the staff really tried to make our stay great. Only one bathroom per sex on each floor, so they would get a little grungy by the end of the day, but te cleaning staff was in every morning to fix it up.

I have been there in april 2012 and everything was perfect It was not that expensive and its location is nearby the center of the city . You can go everywhere where you need to visit by walking or metro. I think that part is the best for the students :) Thanks hello bcn !

I stayed here for a concert and it was in a great location, and the staff was awesome! The room was very small, but honestly I was expecting that. The facilities were very clean and there was a cool bar on the first floor and the drinks were flowing! There was a young, fun and friendly atmosphere at this place and I would definitely recommend it for those on a budget who still want a safe clean place to lay their heads. Just keep in mind it is definitely "euro" sized rooms and don't forget to bring a towel (basic hostel logic). There is also a cool restaurant near by, next to the Apolo theater, it's called Apolo diner. They do live music on a whim and the food is great!

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.

Though I do live in Barcelona, I once in a while spend weekends in this hostel just for the atmosphere. The hostel is clean, the staff I got to know in the mean time, rooms are secured and there is a locker for every traveler. Breakfast is included, but quite basic. There is free internet, although the wifi signal is getting worser with every floor up. My favorite room is on the first floor with connected toilet facility. It can be noisy when people are smoking on the street just below the window.

I stayed at HelloBCN when I visited Barcelona two weeks ago, August 2012. I had an amazing stay at HelloBCN and will definitely go back again for my next trip back to Barcelona! This hostel is filled with friendly staff and travellers. I was travelling with my cousin (two girls) and we both loved HelloBCN. We felt safe, and the twin room that we stayed in was super CLEAN and quiet. And on top of that.. really good air conditioning :)The location is really close to metro and the beach so this hostel is the perfect place to stay!

I really want to compliment the hostel staffs that are working there at the moment. They are really helpful, which made our stay at Barcelona really enjoyable. They spoke fluent english and they gave us really helpful travel tips!I think the hostel arranges trips to nightclubs everynight.. so if you like to party, this hostel will bring you to the best clubs in the city.

The only negative thing is that they only have 6-8 twin rooms which is really hard to reserve for... and the pricing is a bit pricy compared to other hostels. But you get what you pay for!
