  • Five stars all around, this hostel is hands down the best I've stayed at. Fantastically clean, excellent facilities, friendly staff, terrific location, they offer tons of opportunities to see Barcelona (bar crawls, walking tours, beach visits) and the public areas are very nice and a great place to meet other travelers. An excellent price for an excellent place to stay.

  • I really liked that the pub-crawl was free, and we visited some really nice bars and a good club. I had fun! And the staff is relaxed and informal. The toilet/bathroom is a bit small to navigate in during the early hours when a lot of people are using them.

  • You have to be a contortionist to fit into the bathroom stalls. Other than that, good hostel, location and great staff.

  • This is a very nice and modern hostel. The beds are wooden, which is really nice because they don't squeak whenever someone climbs in or out. The common areas --bathroom, lounge, kitchen-- are all clean and new. We had a very comfortable stay here.

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
