Genuinely lovely, very friendly hostel with a great atmosphere. This isn't a party hostel so it's a great place to unwind - perfect to escape the party scene at city centre hostels! The location is great, it's only about 20 mins by metro into the centre, but it's a really quiet and peaceful residential neighbourhood which is lovely. Great parks nearby and the Laberint d'Horta! Amazing staff, really relaxed vibe, and just such a friendly place. Facilities were great - comfy beds, clean dorms, the kitchen was CLEAN and had everything I needed, lovely garden, and an amazing roof terrace. Fantastic views day and night. Also - the free wifi worked well, no hidden extra costs for towels/linen/lockers, and the breakfast was pretty decent. All in all an amazing and lovely hostel! I've actually written a full review on my travel blog - you can find the link in my profile!
