  • Perfect place, some rooms are very poor because of noise. But compared to the price it's perfect!!

  • Overall, a nice stay in the private apartments around the corner from the hostel. However, online it was stated a 10am check in. When we arrived a little early we expected a wait but the staff member said check in was at 2pm. He let us leave our bags in a locked room. Once checking out a staff member said 12 noon is check out. Around 1030 another staff member came and said 11am. He kept our luggage until our flight time for a fee of 5€. Poor communication between staff members.

  • It was a bit basic, didn't have a kitchen or air conditioning, but the location was AMAZING right next to a groceries store, close from both the beach and the metro. It was basically just a place to sleep. Staff was helpful.

  • Obviously, noone should go book a hostel with a 3-star hotel expectations; however, Barcelona 4 Fun couldnot even manage to provide very basic needs. Private rooms they offer are in a seperate building, and there is no reception! Our flight got delayed, so we had to check in later than expected, and our oom was given way, instead of compensating us, the attitude of staff was unacceptable. They tried to charge us for things we didnot use. Sheets and towels are NOT clean.

  • There was no door-plate at the entrance so it was very hard to find. When we rung the bell nobody heard us. So for the future i would make a door-plate at the entrance and at the right bell.

  • I was a solo traveller to Barcelona and was made to feel perfectly safe and welcome! It was easy to find but difficult to get into the hostel and I had to knock on a few doors, as soon as I met the staff they couldn't help me enough, I had booked into 2 seperate rooms but they let me stay in 1 for the whole time and advised places to go and visit and even took my bag to my room for me! The only downside, (around the corner) had no communal room or cooking facilities, so was bit lonely!

  • The building (and front door) is awesome, but the hostel itself is average, Staffed when I was there by a hipster that didn't offer any information whatsoever, other than the location of toilet and shower. He did answer questions as helpfully as he could when asked. Three (huge) flights up, with baggage it's a pain. I can't even tell you about breakfast, because I didn't see any; I was told I could make myself a cup of instant coffee. Location is good, near shops, bars, and transportation.

  • The hostel was exactly what we needed- a central location with average facilities. Unfortunately on our first day I had some euros stolen from my locked room, when I asked the on duty receptionist about the incident they implied that I lied about the incident and nothing would have been taken, I was told the manager would be there to meet me on checkout. The next day when I checked out the manager failed to appear and take responsibility for the incident. Very poor service- DO NOT STAY HERE!
