  The Location You will find Soul Backpackers on the first floor of a beautiful old building. It is located on Diputacio, a long, easy to find street in the Eixample area. The metrostation is just around the corner and a larger supermarket also. 24h-shops are within 2 minutes walking distance. It's sort off right in the middle off everything you want to see. Walt to the old city takes 5 min. To the Las Ramblas, Plaça Catalunya, Arc de Triomph, Bus station north, Sagrada Família and Casa Batlló all takes 10-15 min walks (in different directions). The Barcelona Zoo or le Cathedral: about 30 min walk. And last but not least, the beach and /or harbour will take about 45 min walking. Off course metro's will take you everywhere fast but what a waste that would be to look around in this fantastic city! Rooms and Bathrooms There is a double room, and there are two 4-bed mixed dorms, a 6-bed mixed dorm and a 10-bed mixed dorm. Rooms aren't big but certainly specious enough. High ceilings and tiled floors give them a nice ambiance. The bunkbeds have good matresses and clean linnen. For each bed you'll find a big locker, but you have to bring your own padlock. Rooms are cleaned every day. There are two toilets and three showers, they are a bit old, but cleaned twice per day. The sinks are very small. Also 2 off the showers are really narrow. Worth to wait for the one bigger shower. Also the showers are closed from midnight till 07.00 in the morning. Common Spaces The kitchen is big enough and has everything you need. There is one stove so when it's crowded you might have to wait. There is a large common area with a large table where there is room for everybody to eat. Also there is is another with sofa's to chill. There is a large outside terrace. Here you can all enjoy dinner together or go for a cigarette. Summary Location is absolutely perfect, the building is nice and the staff is friendly. There is a 24 hour reception so there is always somebody available when needed. THe hostel is especially nice because off the size: it's not to crowded and still there are plenty off people to meet. They try to keep hours from midnight till 07.00 silent so that you can catch a good night off sleep. It's absolutely good value for money.

Good location and helpful staff, but facilities are basic
The location is excellent, in a nice neighbourhood, not far from Catalunya square, and close to night life. Reception is very helpful. The bathrooms are pretty basic with only one wash basin in the hostel having hot water. There is not much of a vibe here because the common area is small, with no bar. But the price is good, and this is an ok place for a night or two.

Really cool in general!!
I thought that the hostel was really nice! Really liked it. In my opinion, the only thing that could be better was the information about parking, bars, discos, places. In my opinion a person should know a little bit of everything about the city to "try" to help everyone's taste. Other than that ... awesome place!

We stayed there in the end of july '08 and it was great to be there! the staff is very friendly, the rooms and the bathrooms are very clean! it's in walking distance from las ramblas and the city centre. it's really a great place to stay! there is free internet and huge DVD collection! it's not a party backpacker, which we enjoyed very much!

  This hostel is very very nice! Safe area (but near Plaza de Catalunia), great rooms, clean, very good breakfast. The owner works at the hostel too and knows everything about Barcelona. i would strongly recommend this place to stay.

  An extremely nice and comfortable place to stay. There is a nice atmosphere, nice travelers, it's very convenient and in a safe area. You can leave your things in the room unlocked and nobody takes any of your things! The staff are really helpful and the owners work here themselves. They seem very involved in the hostel and take care of it very well.
