The hostel great location, but should not seek Arco Youth Hostel, a hostel Palermo. This is the same institution in fact, simply dormitory located in the same building, and separate rooms - in the other. Relatively clean room, shower and toilet in the corridor, you can have breakfast in the restaurant next to the entrance to the hotel. All in... More

I had a nice time here! I felt safe, we were very close to all the attractions, and the price was decent! It is hard to find but right off La Ramblas (the big road in Barce), easy walk to all the Gaudi buildings, the sea, the Gothic Quarter, etc. Breakfast was not delicious but it included some fruit and...

Extremely difficult to find (lane is not on any map, online information and staff got on the phone didn't give any valuable clue to find the place, and local people themselves get it wrong). I needed to cancel my last night, yet since doing it online would have costed more than the price for the night itself, I asked the... More

I walked in here without booking anything in Barcelona. My experience was pretty alright. It's true that they don't allow alcohol in the hostel; however, it's just a matter that alcohol tends to make people loud and rowdy when others want to sleep. Most of the people in this hostel are travelers. What I really didn't like was the fact... More

The only thing that I can say its: to take care with the booking manager of the hostel, his name is Pablo Flores. I made the reserve (paying 4 nights) for a 8 people room by email always in contact with Pablo Flores. He has said to me that everything was in order, totally perfect. And when my friends had...

Positives: Great location right near La Rambla and the metro. Free wifi in common areas and lockers in the rooms. The bathroom and rooms were fairly clean. The staff was not the friendliest but not unkind either. Negatives: It's located up a couple of tall flights of stairs which makes it difficult to get up with suitcases. The rooms are... More
