    Superb

    It's a lovely old building that is newly re-furbished inside. Everything was clean and the staff were friendly - especially Juan on reception. It's in a safe area - unlike some other hostels near Las Ramblas. Within easy reaching distance of many of the sights. Good shops & restaurants nearby.

    It's not really the Hostel's fault but there were some Americans talking loudly until 5 am in the common room which was next to our dorm so it was hard to sleep. All the other nationalities were very well behaved and respectful though.

    Great staff. Private room was a bonus. Wifi available. Couldn't have survived with out the vending machines - fab idea. Great social life in the evenings, but everyone needs to be quiet or move on after 11, meaning you don't get disturbed if you need your sleep. Great upmarket location with fab transport links. Free luggage storage. Think I may be back soon :)

    I wouldn't have felt too safe in a dorm room as the rooms don't get locked and you can walk into the hostel off the street. Although, it is not obvious that the building is a hostel (no sign or anything) and apparently there are lockers. The communal showers don't allow anywhere to change, but most people just went in with their swimwear on and you can find different showers rooms on each floor so you can just find one you are comfortable with.

    The staff are really friendly, and the hostel is situated at the city center. There are free wifi and breakfast as well.

    Maybe it was just me, I didn't really enjoy this hostel and ended up switching to another hotel after staying there for the first night. My room is faced to the street and the whole night I basically didn't sleep at all. The shower room is what annoyed me the most. There is no lock on the door and it is a shower room shared by men and women! Someone opened my door while I was taking a shower! That was the very thing that made me escape from the hostel. That was really horrible!

    Cannot beat the location for exploring Barcelona, meters away from one of its most famous streets. It was my first time staying in a hostel, staying in a private room with a shared bath as a single traveller. For the price I really cannot fault the place and the staff are really friendly and more importantly helpful! I treated it as a place to sleep and for that it was perfect, plus good free wifi to catch up friends on an evening was just right. On two nights they had 'nights out' informally organised by people there, and that was also a great way to see Barcelona after dark for those up for a night out.

    Can't fault the place, I'd go back there.

    Grundsätzlich ein ganz gutes Hostel, in dem alles passt. keine übermäßige Lärmbelastung durch andere Gäste. Das Hostel ist definitiv zu empfehlen.

    Superb

    Für alleinreisende optimal, da man schnell und locker viele Leute kennen lernt. Dies bietet aber die Ausstattung und die gemütlichen Räumlichkeiten an. Hab mich stets sehr wohl gefühlt und die gemeinsamen Aktivitäten genossen.

    Mein Zimmer lag direkt neben den Aufentaltsraum, da war es manchmal laut, aber auch dass ging irgendwann.

    Super nette, hilfreiche Mitarbeiter! In dem zimmer Platz genug für alle. Frisches Bettbezug. Lage: zentral gelegen.

    Im zimmer gab es keine Schränke mit schlüssel. Es gab kleine Schränke, wofür man ein Schloß für 4euro kaufen musste. Nicht soo schlimm aber..

    Einigermaßen preisgünstige Möglichkeit in Barcelona zu übernachten

    Das Bettlaken wirkte gebraucht und wurde trotz Zusage nicht gewechselt, das war sehr unangenehm. Die Fotos machen einen besseren Eindruck als die Realität Es sind wider Erwarten nicht viele Tapa-Bars in der Nähe, habe mir die Hacken abgelaufen um etwas spanisches zu essen zu bekommen. Allerdings wurden im Hostel preiswert Spaghetti angeboten. In dem Getränkeautomat gab es kein Wasser. Ungewohnt, aber nicht so schlimm: Beim Frühstück muss man sein Geschirr selbst abspülen.

    das personal war sehr nett und zuvor kommend, die rezeption war 24h besetzt und die lage des hostels war sehr zentral.

    die sauberkeit ser zimmer war leider nicht swhr gegeben, handtücher haben wir nach einen auflreis von 2 euro pro person erhalten. wir hatten einen tollen balkon der aber leider nicht benutzt werden durfte und verriegelt war. am schlimmsten waren die bauarbeiten die im hostel in unserer etage durchgeführt wurden, beginn um 7:00 früh täglich! es war in der nacht auch ziemlich laut in der etage.
