  • The location was great ! The room was okay. The bathroom was just a bit dirty and I would prefer that they put the locker outside the room as our roommates when they came in the lockers have beeping sounds that is a bit disturbing. The bathroom lock was a bit inconvenient as you need to carry the keys with you and has this beeping sound. But anyway other than that the place is ok :)

  • The hostel is situated really not far from La Rambla and that`s great. Nice, clean, good matrasses and normal breakfast. The only thing is that you have to wash your dishes after breakfast.

  • My friend an me had a really good time in Hello BCN, which is located in a very good place, close to the metro and also easy to walk to La Ramblas and others by foot. The staff was really helpful and friendly and the room-we stayed in a 4 bed female dorm- was clean and nice! We really enjoyed our stay in this hostel and I can recommend it. Breakfast was nice too, the idea of washing the used dishes is good too, so it was always clean! Enjoy your stay there!

  • A normal hostel, small rooms, lots of people. I stayed in a 4-Bed-Dorm with only 3 outlets. On the same floor were probably about 6-8 rooms with each 4beds, but only 3 showers & 3 toilets for women & 3 each for men. The beds also moved every time someone turned around.The staff was definitely nice & helpful, the location isn't bad since it is close to metro and shopping area. However, I would rather suggest it for a group of people that is looking to party since it is noisy & mainly young folks.

  • Other than the proximity to the city centre (although there is a metro a street corner away), this hostel was perfect in every way. The doors and locks to the rooms were opened by personalised electronic keys. Breakfast was provided, the staff at the desk were very polite, and guests at the hostel are given discounts to local businesses. The hostel also provided large maps of the city and tourists guides, and had a lift to all floors. All the facilities were spotless and functioning. Thank you!
