Poor 2.0
Rude maid
Very rude. Had a reservation for two nights and still get woken up by the maid telling me I need to get up and get out. I tell her I have another night booked, doesn’t understand English, gets mad at me and shakes her head, goes to the front desk and the front desk person comes to wake me up. Once again I have to explain that I have another night booked and that I don’t have to move according to the person at check in. Don’t give attitude when your waking up a paying guests After paying to stay consecutive nights. Willl not come back nor will ever recommend. Sorry Not sorry

Great hostel, needs some elbow grease
This was my second stay here, the first being when the hostel first opened a couple years ago. I came back because the first experience was so positive. Most of the elements that lead me to repeat my stay at Gracia City Hostel were there the scond time around: great staff, a friendly environment, perfect location, and a great bang for your buck. However, the place really could do with a thorough scrubbing. The biggest problem is mold around the air ducts in the dorm as well as all over the celing in the showers. I'm sure management will get that taken care of and, as soon as the hostel has had a deep cleaning, I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Exceptional 10.0
Great hostel!
Cozy hostel located right off the main street. Just far enough away that we weren't kept up by the hustle and bustle of the city. Rooms were clean and hostel staff was super helpful (they even took care of getting us a taxi to the airport when we left!) The bathrooms are older and are set up more like gym bathrooms, and have wear and tear. But they were clean and both the hot and cold water worked with no issues. The beds were very comfortable. Staff enforced the "don't be loud after 11pm" rule, which was very, very appreciated. NOTE FOR PEOPLE GOING IN THE SUMMER: there is air conditioning but you have to ask them to turn it on for your room specifically.

Fair 4.0
Wouldn't recommend it
This was a crammed, small hostel with too few facilities. The showers were pretty dirty, there was never toilet paper. There's too many people and too few facilities which means a lot of waiting around. It's a bit far from metro's and buses, but that is because of it's cosy place in Gracia, so it depends on what you're into. Also, the front desk is supposed to be manned at all hours but I came home at night and the key-card to get in the front door had stopped working and I had to stand outside for 30 minutes until a guest could let me in. The next day when I told the staff he didn't care at all and simply ignored my complaint and checked me out. I've stayed at a lot of wonderful hostels in Barcelona that are cheaper and better than this one, wouldn't recommend it at all.

Amazing value, a few minor issues
Unbeatable value for the location, walls a bit thin between rooms so we could hear interesting sounds from next door! Also, refilling toilet paper dispensers not efficiently managed by staff.
