Score from 1363 reviews Very good 8.2/10
It was amazing , very helpful nice staff , the room is small but well furnished , cuzy and clean, I had problem in the bathroom in less than a minute everything was fixed, the restaurant and the bar inside are awesome , they have flamenco show in the restaurant and everyday they have something new. Place in the center and so easy to reach , I enjoyed barcelona and the hostel
Everything was perfect
The city and the breakfast .
The lurid carpets and the tiny rooms. Fellow residents were noisy at night .
good location, clean, easy to navigate
breakfast could have fruit for what we payed.
I didn't feel safe in the area at night.
Perfect for young people, very clean & location is just perfect
the decoration and the staff
it felt like it wasnt a "youth hostel" anymore but a big machine, lack of proximity.
The bar areas were great. The bar staff made good G&Ts! Enjoyed the breakfast for an extra €6.50. Helpful staff. Very comfortable mattress but lumpy pillow.
Only 2 lifts, which were always very busy so had to wait for them quite a bit. Our dorm was very basic, there was a large empty space where it should've had a seat/table (as the picture showed on the website). There were no hooks on our bunks or anywhere to hang any clothes on which is greatly needed.
Clean, simple, good sleep
Long to check in Noisy entrance, full of people entrance
Hostel is close to a main metro line, great Wi-Fi and really comfortable stay. I now stick to Generator Hostels through Europe when I can. Stayed in one other Barcelona Hostel and it was nearby but no where near as good as this one. Definitely returning if i go back to Barcelona
It's cleaned and you have the good staff. The room is very good as well.
The location is a negative point, but you have train station closer.
The shared shower room is dirty.
Never do reviews but this was a great place to stay. For the price, it exceeded my expectations and the atmosphere is wonderful. Highly recommended.
- excellent location - friendly staff - clean rooms - bathroom in the room - very good wifi
Location is good, walking distance from most tourist attractions, not far from metro Beds are clean and comfortable (bearing in mind that it was a dorm), mattresses also of a good quality. In addition to a common toilet/shower in the corridor there was a shower cabin and a toilet in our 6-beds dorm, very convenient, big advantage. Air is conditioned, control panel in the room.
Один в один гостиница "Экономическая" из "Незнайки на Луне", только вентиляция бесплатная. Yes, it is big and ugly "insert coin" hostel. Everything is automatised - coins in wending machines for snacks, coins for washing, coins for safe box, coins here, coins there. The results are foreseeable, if you buy a safe box for 6 hours (yes, sounds stupid already), but return later you will find it wide open. Oh, and it is located in the lobby, by the way. There are lockers in the room, but with no locks and unless you happen to carry one with you, the hostel with rent it for 5 euro. Apart from cleaning personnel, you can find living beings only at the reception, they are always smiling and will happily tell you where the metro station is and how to get drunk, but when you address them with a problem of non-working socket or non-closing room door don't expect anything more than "sorry, can't help, the right guy will come tomorrow" and tomorrow never comes, as you know. The hostel positions itself as a youth-friendly, providing some evening events, music etc., but for some reason in the evening you will see guests (younger ones usually) gathering in the lobby and leaving for a better place to spend time. It is a minor thing but the corridor lights are very dim and with no windows you feel being in a bomb shelter
Hostel is very good and new! It has an incredible interior design, I like!!! But like every things have a merit and defect: It's so far from the centre, but nevertheless I've been good!

Very small room
The design. The modern interior. Style and layout.
Great rooms, young crowd, great wifi, comfortable bed, individual storage (bring a lock)
location is a little far from the beach but it allows you to walk through the city.
Spotlessly clean (I'm very fussy!!) Really comfy beds. Breakfast great value. Staff at reception really helpful and accommodating. Our room happened to be ready at 12 noon and we were able to check in earlier. We have four children aged between 6 to12 and they loved it too as it was so different from usual accommodation we have stayed in. We stayed in 6 bedded room with private bathroom. Especially loved the table football and pool table in the Chill Out Area and my 12 year old was thrilled with free wifi that actually works!! Will definitely try out other Generator Hostels in other European cities and will stay in this hostel in Barcelona again. Best metro to get off from is Diagonal rather than Verdaguer as I think it is more direct and easier to find hostel from.
Nothing but if I had to make one tiny observation it would be that the music in the bar could be heard from our room on second floor. It didn't bother us as we were all wrecked from day of sight seeing!!
I liked the shower.
There were a lot of large high school or colledge groups which occupied the entire hostel. The entire building had a strange disinfectant smell. The kitchen was not usable and the fridge full of stale going off food.
Clear, good localization
Chill area and bar
great facility excellent clean hotel area cool designed furniture and lounge lots of fun areas to hang out wifi in the rooms
- too many tour groups crowded the front desk, so hard to get through every day! - front desk wasn't as attentive, asked them to call for a taxi she called for one but did not confirm with us and we were just standing there - location wasn't perfect, wished it was closer to the attractions
It's central but not in a busy area and you can still get to anywhere easily but have a good rest.
Great location, facilities, staff. Place is modern and fun.
