Yellow Nest Hostel Barcelona by Feetup Hostels Hostel Review and Information

The staff was really nice, helped me with everything, from getting to the station to booking a tour. The hostel has a homey atmosphere where you can chat with people if you feel like it on the terrace or in the common area, but the bedrooms are very quiet and comfortable. The beds were also really comfy and there was plenty of room. It is a bit far from the center but its very accessible with the metro. It is also very quiet at night so you can get a good night's sleep. - Palova
