Nice hostel near the heart of the city.
Overall a good stay. The hostel is located within about a 10-minute walking distance from the old city center as well as a few nice parks. The La Sagrida Familia Basilica is only a 20-minute walk away as well. When one needs to travel further there is always a selection of public transport to choose from nearby. The hostel itself is nice, with large rooms and friendly staff. The rooms, beds, toilets and showers were all clean upon arrival which is a bonus, and checking in and out was very easy. Each person in a room is also assigned a locker in order to store valuables. I would ahhpily stay at this hostel again.

Nice stay, nice spot
Black Swan was clean and tidy. Under-bed lockers, beds with curtains, and personal charging ports were all nice touches. Great location, friendly staff, and plenty of social events. cons: Bathroom stalls are tiny, showers only have one hook, and the crowd runs young (read: noisy). All said, I had a pleasant stay.

Great activities but staff could be better
Some staff were super cool and friendly. Some didnt care about you at all. We did two pubcrawls. First night was really nice, great vibes and great guide (french girl, cant remember her name). Second night was shitty. The guide didnt care at all and it put a different atmosphere into the group. Hostel has great facilities. Large kitchen and chilling rooms. There are many activities which is what makes this hostel great to stay. Dorms were a bit small but the beds were big and private, with a large underbed locker. Area is awesome, walking distance from everything. 24h/7 supermarket next to the hostel is a plus too. Showers were okay, some were clean but others had a terrible smell and lots of flies.
