  • WiFi doesn't work anywhere other than in the reception area which is really annoying especially as my room was only a few metres from there. hostel has no real chill out common area. Its just nice to be able to chill for a bit somewhere in the morning or when you get in at night before you go to bed. It felt cold as if you have no reason to be there unless you want to sleep.

  • A great place to stay and a great value for money. It was very clean, had WiFi, and basically everything you need for a short stay. It's a perfect place if you are out touring all day and need a temporary place to crash :)

  • Certain parts of the hostel were very well maintained, however the part we stayed in was unfinished and lacking in general standards of cleanliness. The rooms had no lock, and we required our own padlock for the lockers, about which we were not informed beforehand. This resulted in us having no security for our belongings. On the second day our labelled food disappeared from the fridge, despite us following the guidelines. However, the location was good (close to metro) and the staff polite.

  • Comfy beds, very nice kitchen and a big terrace. Very good for its price! But bathrooms were dirty.

  • I enjoyed my stay at Graffiti Hostel. It was nothing fancy, but for the price you couldn't ask for more. It isn't in the center of the city, but it is only two blocks from a metro stop, and Barcelona's metro is very reliable. Everyone was friendly and it was clean enough. So long as you aren't expecting a 4 star hotel you should enjoy your stay.

  • The hostel was a great value and I enjoyed my stay there. It could easily be looked over on the outside, we walked right past it. Make sure you pay attention! The location is close to a metro station and a 15 minute walk to La Sagrada Familia.The staff was helpful. We arrived early and they stored our things for us while we explored. Everyone in the hostel seemed friendly. We never had any problems with noise. Our room was very hot. The windows were locked shut but we had a small fan.

  • Staff were very unhelpful with transportation questions and suggestions for restaurants and sights. No air conditioning so the room was very hot. Not very many supplies for the kitchen. Shower in the bathroom was broken, Positive: nearby to Metro station, even though it is not right in the city center, rooftop terrace is nice.
