Hostel Name: Dream Cube Hostel
Address: Avd. Sarria 67, Les Corts, Barcelona, Spain 08029
The Dream Cube Hostel is about 15 minutes walk from Barcelona Sants train station and about 10 minutes walk to the nearest metro.
I booked this hostel partly out of curiosity of the capsule beds. I’ve noticed a trend in hostels that are offering more privacy in dorm rooms with partitioned bunk beds. Last year I stayed in a hostel with capsule beds. While it is not a Japanese-style capsule hotel the pods at Dream Cube offer more privacy than a standard bunk bed.
What I liked about this hostel was the option to get a bed that is lengthways so it is easier to get in and out. Each bed has a lockable drawer under the bed, and a light, power outlet, and shelf. A simple curtain goes a long way to adding to privacy. The mattresses were thin though and I found them a bit uncomfortable at times.
The shared bathrooms were kept clean and fresh during my stay.
A simple breakfast of cereal, toast, and tea and coffee is provided for free. There is also a kitchen for self-catering.
The wifi was available throughout the property and I had no problems connecting.
Overall I enjoyed my stay here. If you’ve been backpacking around Europe and staying in hostels without any privacy, then these self-contained capsules will offer some privacy without having to pay for a whole room to yourself.
