I liked that the bunkbeds had curtains around them to give some privacy while sleeping.
I didn't like the shower situation. The bathroom was small, the showers were kind of gross, so it was hard to figure out where to change and put stuff while in the shower. Also, the showers weren't very clean. It was a bit noisy as well.
Good location, hotel is close to main square (plaza cataluna) and to main bus station (barcelona nord).
no pillow and blanket - so if you travel without your bedroom they charge u 2 euro per night for pillow and duvet which i think is ridiculous. Staff is bored and isnt helpful, and obviously fed up with their job. Beds are very short - if you are taller than 165 cm, be prepared to kick the iron end of the bed every time to lay down and also be prepared to wake up at night several times with hurting feet. No hangers in bathroom, so you cannot hang your clothes on anything while having shower - but i wouldnt recommend u to walk in the bathroom without your clothes as it is a shared facility and others may not be interested in watching you naked... In over all i wouldnt recommend the place for anybody and wont go back ever again.
Good location - walking distance from Plaza Catalunya which has direct fast bus to airport. Walking distance to most sights in Barcelona. Good eating joints close by. Dormitories have good seclusion of beds by curtains, bedlight and secure locker with charging point. Internet access free - both wireless and 4 terminals. Kitchen area clean.
Mixed dorms - could be gender identified.
