Positive Reviews

Shopping and Sightseeing

The hostel is situated in an ideal location near the Gracia and Diagonal areas, with the famous Passeig de Gracia just a ten-minute walk away. It's the perfect place for shopping enthusiasts and is convenient to many sightseeing highlights as well. Guests found it easy to get around on foot, especially when going out to down, but the nearby metro makes travel even more effortless.

Morning Delight

Guests were impressed with the selection at breakfast time. The vast continental spread is much more than one would expect from a hostel. You can expect to find fresh fruit, bakery, cereals, meats and cheeses, with juice and coffee as well.

Rooftop Terrace

Make sure to spend some time on the communal terrace. Lay down and read a book on one of the loungers or enjoy a coffee at the patio tables. For many guests, this was a highlight of the hostel.

Negative Reviews

No A/C

Summers in Barcelona can be harsh, and unfortunately, the hostel is missing the much-needed air conditioner. Guests warn that the rooms can get quite stuffy around August.

Sound Travels

Judging from repeated noise complaints even with less than loud neighbours, it seems that the rooms are not well insulated.

Language Barrier

Quite often, guests ran into communication issues with the front desk staff. Though they are friendly and willing to help, it seems that many employees don't speak any other language than Spanish.
