(+): The hostel is 5 stars. Super clean, friendly, calm and well-located. Nuria and Margot were amazing and super kind. Definitely I recommend the experience and I would like to thank.
(-): During the weekend, the volunteer has to share the room with Maria who works there. Most of the time is ok, but eventhough we are in our dayoff , she lock the door inside with the keys in the door and I was not able to enter in the room. My last day there I was sick and I tried to enter and she didnt open the door at 01 am. In this cases we have to sleep in the living room but that is not fair.

The environmental is really nice. The experience was perfect for me. I recommend for people who wanna start life in Barcelona or stay here for a short period without spend a lot of money. The best part was met people from every countries and also be in contact with local people and the very simpatic staff (Nuria, Margot and Maria). I loved it!
