I spent two days there and the experience was excellent. The only downside is the showers in the basement. Fortunately the hostels is very small and there is a lift but still... The personnel was super nice, everything clean and modern, large personnal lockers in the room,... In addition it is open at any time.

The water only runs blistering hot in the sinks, the rooms are unbearably hot and the staff is not very knowledgable of the place they work. I needed change for the laundry and was given small coins when the machine only takes full Euro coins. Then when I went to buy detergent, she gave me the dregs at the bottom...

As soon as I arrived I was more than welcomed, it felt like I became a part of the family instantly. The facilities and cleanliness was perfect too! Even if you're not as lucky as me to meet a great group of people, the manager is lovely and it is located in a very central yet quiet spot. I wouldn't...

We booked one night and the most important thing was location. This place is close to Sants station. It was clean and lady in the "reception" was nice and friendly even we came pretty late in the evening. She didn´t speak english, but that´s common in Spain. We had booked a private room, but I have to say it wasn´t...

We had a great stay at this hostel! Tucked away in a side street, this hostel has a great location out of the tourist-y part of the city but very close to the metro. It's crisp and clean - all nicely furnished - with relatively comfortable rooms. As the other reviews mentioned, we had a great experience with the staff....

This hostel is a new hostel on the block it seems. Close to the metro station. The hostel has a lift and full house with 3 floors and a basement. A single shared bathroom is present on each floor. Extra shared washrooms are present in the basement both for males and females. Overall, a nice hostel to lay down.

Spotlessly clean, brand new everything, powerful, hot showers, crisp, white, cotton sheets. Very sweet staff. 5 min walk from Sants, but in a quiet area without the usual noise and undesirable things which come with being near a train station. I should also mention that I was in a 6 person dorm ( actually sharing with only one other person)...

New, clean and comfortable. Will not disappoint. Staff are very friendly. We had a piece of luggage that did not make it with us and Jordi diligently called airport to connect and inquire. He had to call over and over because the airport does not routinely answer the phone. Good news our luggage came in. Recommend staying ... beds are...

This hostel does not disappoint, its unique and true to form. Its a new hostel. Staff are excellent and its very clean. Location is very good and close to everything you need. Barcelona is such a great city and its great when you visit that you can stay at this safe hostel. Liked it very much.

Very good location; 8 minutes walk from Sant station, 2 minutes walk from metro station. Staffs were really nice and helpful and played great music. It is very small, everyone hang out like a family. However, the common area was not clean, especially the toilet and shower room.

“The rooms are all connected. That didn't matter to me, the security of the location and for each person was very high (lockers available at no charge) and the staff cleaned each area (each "room") daily.”
