  • Overall the hostel is ok. everything is made of metal tough (beds, locker, door), which make it impossible to sleep when someone enters a room. Showers are miniature, and its annoying when you need to press the button again and again like in the swimming pool. We booked for a week and left after 2 days because the noise was unbearable (and that is compared to other shared room hostels). they didn't want to give us refund, but we left anyway. won't be returning here.

  • pretty standard above average hostel, wasn't hear for very long, but I know they try to have an event every evening. I was there when there was not many guests so it was kind of dead. I might give it another shot during a busier time.

  • The staff is superfriendly. The open kitchen is cool because you get to save a lot of money by cooking on your own. There are 3 supermarkets right besides the hostel, which is nice. The atmosphere makes you feel like you are in a big comunity/ family and everybody is supernice. I would go there again. :) 5 stars

  • One of the cleaner hostels ive been too. There is an Italian guy who works at the front desk, super friendly and is happy answering any questions. Some of the other people that work at the front desk either aren't as friendly or only speak Spanish. Hostel pub crawls are hit and miss, some nights were great others were not so good. They also do drinking games and other things before heading out on the pub crawl which was good fun.

  • My experience at this hostel has been A M A Z I N G! As a backpacker who is traveling alone, I definitely recommend staying at this hostel! The staff (special shoutout to Pablo and J) are incredibly friendly, fun, and helpful. Pub crawls every night are an excellent way to meet people and this hostel definitely makes an effort to get everyone together!

  • Everyone was really nice and helpful, and always there to help. Atmosphere was great, very social with a pub crawl on every night! Great location 10 mins from the barrio gothic and close to sants station. Cleaning was done really well too! THANK YOU very much for making my stay there super comfortable! You should probably take a look at the wifi though..it was spotty once in a while. Thank boss for the amazing sangria too! Loved it :) And also thanks for the great goodbye Norbert!
