Wow, beautiful hostel, walkable location, and super quiet! Everything in this place is extremely clean and well-taken care of. Not to mention that Paula, the receptionist, is an amazing person and her kindness made our trip 10x better! She was so amazing and gave us the best recommendations of what to do during our trip. I will definetely come back to this place next time I am in Barcelona. The most welcoming hotel!

Would definitely visit again.
10/10 for cleanliness, customer service and location. Walls quite thin so can hear people coming and going in the other rooms but not loud enough to disrupt sleep.
