  • This hostel was really great! From the second I arrived I loved it, it was clean, very nice and cozy. The staff was great especially during the night, they were so relaxed and helpful all the time. I would reccomend this hostel to everybody, you will meet lots of nice people there and have a good time :)

  • Very stylish hostel in a nice district. The stuff is helpful but not very welcoming, but one guy. I have been there alone and found some nice people to get connected to.

  • Within walking distance of nearly everything. Nice kitchen, though it closes at odd hours. Wifi works everywhere. There are good common areas, and the hostel organizes events (like pub crawls and nightly dinners) so it's a really good spot to meet people.

  • Don't stay at this hostel. The manager doesn't always apologize for some things and the only compensation he will offer you is another stay at the hostel if you've had a bad experience there, but he won't tell you how he will improve your stay the next time. If you ask for a reduction in what you paid them for your stay, you won't get anything. If you really care about customer service, save your money and look for another hostel, because the staff are lousy there.

  • That was a good place to stay, just 10-bed room was too small and not really comfy. Common places was really nice.

  • Staff was really friendly toward our group and we had excellent conversation during our stay in Barcelona. Close enough for walkers to get where they want to go and close to metro as well. Recommended to others on our same study away program.
