Safestay Barcelona Gothic Reviews

Cool hostel

I've been here last week and it was really cool! The winter in barcelona is really good, and the prices are down.

Pretty impressive location! Will return for sure!

Age 19 | Germany


This was a great hostel. Really easy to meet people here and to communicate with them. It was a lot of fun, I would definitely stay here again! The bathrooms are clean and the beds have curtains around them, which was really nice. And the front desk is pretty helpful. No problems with this hostel!


I will definitely recommend this hostel. It's clean, offers a relative privacy comparing to other hostels due to the curtains, the staff is nice. Also it has a great location. The only think I disliked were some people in the room who were not quiet at all. But you have to expect that from a hostel, I don't know how the staff can control this.


Myself (female) and a friend (male) stayed in the hostel from Tues 13th to Sat 17th March 2007. I have some suggestions for improvement. Provide a kettle, there was nowhere to make a cup of tea. Do not describe the hostel as having a kitchen, as a sink does not count. I would have expected at least a hob. Replace/rip up the floor boards, as they are incredibly noisy and disturbing. When guests check in, offer blankets, as this was not clear. Staff need to be more welcoming, it felt like even coming through the door we were a hassle to them. Check if people are a couple or just friends, we were given a shared space when we were just friends and would have preferred a downstairs bunk with single beds. Replace ladders on bunks with wider steps, these were incredibly uncomfortable to climb up. Make sure all shower heads face vertically as some spray the wall rather than the person. Music in the hostel was unnecessarily loud. Lastly we were very unfortunate to share a dorm with some incredibly noisy and inconsiderate people who insisted on using their mobile phones as alarms on snooze, which meant from 7 a.m. each morning we were woken up by the phones which proceeded to go off every five minutes until we got fed up and got up. We asked them to turn them off and we were ignored. We did not feel that reception would be able to help in this matter. Location is fantastic and would be good value for money if the above suggestions are implemented. We nicknamed it the Host'hell while we were there due to the factors listed above.

Nice staff, good breakfast, and clean rooms. The privacy curtain was very nice along with the lofted beds.

Europe Rules

This hostel looks poorly maintained. Certainly not bright, it looks like an old factory building that ought to be demolished soon. It smells. The "modules" look like crap. It is located a an extremely noisy alley, people shouting all night long, live music, garbage containers being loaded on a truck in front of your window at 4 AM. Free internet and breakfast are ok though but if you want a place to SLEEP you should avoid this place. You will do yourself a great big favor by doing so.


Stayed here with some friends. It was clean and fairly quiet. They had lockers you can use (with your own locks) and they'll let you keep your bags there after you check out. Helpful staff. Good location. Fairly social place. I'd imagine it's a good place for a solo traveller to stay... not too intimidating.


no me gusto la habitacion grande donde tuve que pasarme 7 noches; o, conmontones de camas que no lo precian ni nada. bueno, 70 personas en tu habitcion?? una idea exagerada de lo que es un dorm; bleh. tampoco me gusto el common room que nno era cosy ni amable, el staff no parecia tan amable tampoco. estuve all en el verano de 2004.
