  • The price is the best thing about this hostel. Most of the front-desk staff were kind and helpful. The close proximity to Las Ramblas is great. However, not all of the beds are in the boxes as advertised in the photos. I was in the larger mixed dorm and half the beds were white metal prison-style bunks. Bring a lock, towel, and shower flip flops. You can rent the first two but not the last one. I wouldn't go alone/for more than 1 night. The "free breakfast" consists of wonderbread and jam.

  • The hostel was really great, and really good value for money. The beds and showers were great and the kitchen was really well stocked. They had a TV and a vending machine and a computer, and the staff do everything in their power to help you. Only downsides were the fact that security was pretty lax and that there were some "long term guests" that thought they owned the place, using all the tables to cook for one or two people, hogging the tv, and talking down to guests. Otherwise, great hostel.
