Free locker for each user is perfect for keeping your stuff and big enough for regular backpacks and some extra stuff. Bathrooms were clean and the common areas were comfortable. Location is really good, just next to Carrer de Ferran (in the middle of La Rambla).
Somewhat noisy during the morning, coming from the adjoining street (although it only bothers you if you go out the previous night and stay late in bed the next morning). Having to pay for the blankets and sheets (free towel though).
Staff were friendly, other people staying tried to be considerate when other people were sleeping, location is great! It's only a 10minute walk to the beach, 2 minute walk to the nearest metro. They had pamphlets on different tours to do. Kitchen was clean and tidy and the breakfast was okay, nothing fancy but it did the job! The Wifi is excellent and fast, this is great as I solely rely on wifi for booking accomadation and flights etc for the next journey. Great location as there is lots of little restaurants, cafés, take away shops etc everywhere. I would recommend this to people.
The power went out early one afternoon and didn't get back on until 12pm the next day, but this could not be helped
The hostel is situated splendidly: Rambla is just a few steps away, not far from the beach. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere.
The air conditioning in our room got broken the day we arrived…
Friendly helpful staff, perfect location in Barcelona. Free wifi, and ample space to cook.
Free breakfast was very spartan. Tiny bread and granola.
The guests staying there happened to be nice people & easy to get along with.
Firstly, there is no indication of "Arco" downstairs, so that wasted a lot of time finding the place. Rude staff. Hot bedrooms at night, no or barely functioning AC. I switched rooms. Small recreational room. The receptionist who was working on August 7 between 11:15am & 11:25 am was very rude & wouldn't let me talk to the manager when I had a complaint.
I've been here for just one night because I had read terrible reviews, but I was sorry to leave. Great location, great staff, the place it's clean, breakfast included.. It's a great hostel.
The place is in the middle of La Rambla. Its a bit difficult to find not because the Hostel is far but because there is not enough street signs. We were there a bit late in the afternoon and we were entertained by a staff right away. We traveled as duo. Even though the hostel is a bit old but it doesnt matter because its always clean and well ventilated. It doesnt have any smell considering that its occupied by different people all the time. He accompanied us to our room and from there..He let us choose our beds. :) The breakfast is basic but its okay because its cheap. :) The other staff help us find the easiest way to travel around Barcelona and see tourist spots only by walking. We are really happy because we are saving our money. Its a nice hostel to spend your money. We will come back in Barcelona and stay in this Hostel again. :)
I really liked it location. Close to the city center and convenient to go to every touristic points.
I was approached by the receptionist when I arrived at hostel late on night about some charge which that morning earlier the other receptionist told me that I could do later. The man was visibly drunk and demanded the payment at time under the condition check out. A woman, without accommodation in the city center at late on night. I found the absurd attitude!
Not much good as I expected. They take the price of sheet
Some facilities weren't 24/7 eg printing. Can't print tickets at 8 big
Good secure lockers. Showers were always hot and had great pressure. 24hr reception so could get in and out whenever you liked. Nice helpful staff. Free wifi with strong signal.
Breakfast was very very basic, but you are so close to everything that I just wondered out to get something. Also quite noisy at night but that's because the city doesn't sleep.
The staff is helpful. Although the bathrooms are shared, I did not line up for using them.
The breakfast could be better.
- Friendly helpful staff - Safe, secure & clean - Well placed in centre of town close - 24hr reception was handy for late arrival, early departure and some late drinks :-)
- You can't actually get on to the balcony (it was protected by a gate and covered in plants) - perhaps a security measure, but the balcony probably shouldn't be advertised - No alcohol in the hostel (I understand why this might be), so if you fancy a quiet evening beer you will have to splash out in the bars :-) Not the worst but good to know
Very central Cheap
You have to pay for using the Computers! Very Expensive
Internet access; complimentary cafe and breakfast; helpful staff!
