Awesome hostel in the middle of the city
We booked a 6 beds private room for 5 of us.(My husband , myself and 3 kids) It was our last day of Barcelona and we had to go to airport by 5am next morning so we were only there to sleep for 7 hours. Our room had 3 bunk beds, (6 beds) and 6 lockers, 2 shower, 1 toilet. I wanted somewhere we can check out at 4.30am and this hostel was perfect as it is 24 hours reception. We thought we might need their help to call a maxi taxi for us but luckily we found one on the street right in front of the hostel. A receptionist was calling a taxi company for us but we found one before he connected to a line. Check in and check out was quick. We had one hour early check in and we walked to Casa Mira and that area. Had a fab Tapas for our dinner nearby. We also used the laundry there (4 euro for a big dryer - Maytag brand! Not sure how much for washing machine) as our previous Airbnb apartment washing machine was broken so I felt like I should have stayed here longer!

This was the first hostel I have ever stayed at and I have to say they have set the bar high for me. They cleaned the room everyday. The staff was awesome! It felt safe with the fingerprint access. Honestly the worst thing was someone ate the loaf of bread I bought lol. It is located close to the metro and between to big plazas which made it easier to find your way back if you got lost. All you had to do was me too one of the plazas and so eone could poi t you in the right direction. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and everyone. Not a party hostel but had the opportunity to have fun nights too...
