    You can not sit if you choose bottom bed. The in the room, there is only two place for changing. It is really sad to be that. The location is good to beach and enjoy the shopping street. So it is good and bad. Both of it.

    The hostel is very well located and the staff was very nice. The common areas are not bad. The room I got was very smelly, and the pillow on the bunk bed had a really bad smell of unwashed body... Really disgusting. Would not go back.

    The location of the hostel is very convenient. The public area of the hostel is big. But apart from that, I don't recommend this place. The bathroom is small. I don't like the design of the room. It's literally like staying in a prison like some other people describe, or a military camp. I booked at the last minute and it's a bit expensive for me to stay in a place like this.

    Great location and security!”

    First time in a hostel! Stayed in the 10 sleeper room on the 4th floor. It was so hot and stuffy in that squashed room. The air conditioning is only in the communal areas downstairs. But the bed was comfy and clean. Two showers and 4 toilets served 4 rooms, at least two of which slept 10 people each. There were also only two sockets in the room. Would stay again.

    the receptionists are warmhearted but it's a little bit far from the plaza de cataluna which means the location registered on agoda is wrong. and only downstairs there's Wi-Fi... not good

    Good location”

    Security, location., laundry

    As wifi was only available in reception, everyone was downstairs on the Internet which made for an anti-social environment. Be weary of the pub crawls that are run from the hostel (Charlotte and Marco), whilst Charlotte was friendly they were poorly organised and not worth it. Rooms are basic but good enough (actually got a double bed and not two singles pushed together) however they do get warm as there are only fans and no air con.
