Outstanding”
One of the best hostels I have stayed at. They have a program for their guests who doesnt have an itinerary upfront. Free walking tours daily, they have paella-making nights which I soo love. They gave out some free dinners too! The staff is awesome, very friendly and always ready to help. Special shout out to Raf, Jen and Niko and all the lovely ladies of Black Swan - you guys rock! Even though the rooms are shared, showers and toilets are separate from the guys. I will definitely rebook here when I find my way again to Barcelona. All the best!!!

Centrally located, friendly staff and worth recommending !”
I found Black Swan hostel ideal for solo women travellers like me. Staff is present 24/7, internet connectivity is excellent and cleanliness is good. They also have Paella cooking classes and free dinners twice a week which was great !I have attended one of their free walking tours of the Gothic Quarter which was so informative. Other activities like the pub crawl, salsa classes etc cannot be missed. The hostel has a chic ambience and an up-to-date kitchen, a nice common area with all amenities to make your stay comfortable. Above all, the location is superb. All major bus stops, metro stations, supermarkets are close by. It is at walking distance from Arch de Triomf and even Placa Catalunya. The staff is always happy to help and welcoming. If you are looking to stay in a centrally located hostel with superb staff look no further than Black Swan Hostel.

Bathroom and toilet isn't on the same floor, and both smells/are little dirty. When I check-ed in they gave me a bed which isn't ready so I had to point that out and transfer. Elevator wasn't working, though it's just 3 floors, someone with a back problem like me is very articular with elevators. Staff were great though, they were very approachable. Printed my ticket for free, and one time they were just feeding everyone with pasta.

Very active, high volume hostel”
Very efficiently run hostel that seems to cater to young travellers. Everything was fine as long as you are aware that place will have a lot of people coming and going and making noise at all hours. One large negative that I found was that there are only 4 mens toilets for dozens of men. Use your imagination. There is another room for showering, thank god.

Loud hostel”
I stayed there for only one night, that I couldn't sleep coz it was way too loud, I had to go to another hostel (360). The staff there wasn't helpful or friendly. I hated the vibe in the air. It is a hostel fot very young and loud people, that don't any respect whatsoever for their roommates. It is plenty of stairs. The bunk beds don't have their own lights nor a sucket for charging your electronics.

My awesome travel BCN in BlackSwanhostel”
location kindness activities
I am really satisfied with Black swan hostel. First of all, the location is perfect. the hostel is located near Catalunya Centrum. I normally walked to there and take a bus or metro. Second, the reception is very kind. There is a korean guy whose name is Jaehyun. The hostel have free dinner on some days. The guy cooked korean chicken that was really awesome and he was really kind. If I go Barcelona again, I will go Black swan Hostel. The reason is for him. And I want to see the guy again. Next time, I want to cook for him. Thank you Black swan hostel and Jaehyun. For you, I can spend my perfect travel in Barcelona. Gracia !!!

Cleanliness, friendliness and helpless of staff
I had a great experience at Black Swan Hostel. I was very impressed by how clean the facilities, kitchen, rooms and common rooms were; staff were always on duty and someone was always cleaning. The kitchen was very nice and allowed for cooking for ourselves, and had a coffee machine, great snack machines that sold detergent for laundry. Staff member Juah Yun also prepared free dinner for the hostel one night-- the stew was amazing! Breakfast was enjoyable and healthy and included in the cost. The staff were friendly and inviting and wanted to get to know the hostel guests, and there were lots of fun activities like salsa classes and pub crawls for those who wanted to go out. There were lockers with locks in the rooms and the sheets were clean. Best hostel experience I've had and I'd recommend this hostel to a friend.
