“Great location, not so great place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2012

It was cheap(ish). Location was very, very good. Furniture is run down, walls are thin. We did not realize that we would have to share a bathroom when we booked, and it was cleaned only once a day, so once people started to use it the shower, sink, toilet, etc. could get quite messed up. Staff was accommodating and most spoke English, but did nothing to control other people staying there when they made a lot of noise (like yelling late at night) and ran around the hallway. Walls were so thin that we could hear whole conversations from the room across the hall. Rooms were clean. Bed was a bit lumpy and one of the sheets had a hole. It wasn't the worst place that I've stayed in, but I wouldn't recommend it.

The hostel was in an ideal location to discover Barcelona and the prize was quite cheap.It's a very good place to stay if you 're only going to the hotel for sleep and shower.The 3bed room was basic and clean, but it didn't have air condition!

This is definitely a easy and easily accessible place to stay in the city. It does not have the wow factor one bit. But for a couple of friends who spent more time exploing the city we just wanted a place to sleep and wash. The shared bathroom faciltiies arent bad- although would have been nice to have had something to dry my hands with other than loo roll once being to the toilet.

The staff are very friendly and helpful, and if you hve late flight for just 5 euros they will keep your liggage after you´ve checked out. So it meant we could spend a day in the city without taking our luggage with us.

The reason why I gave it a ´poor´rating was due to the lack of sleep. I expected noise from the Las Ramblas but the windows did drown it out. It was the other guests! Considering in the ´hostals´rules it says ´there must be pin drop silence after midnight´ it was more loud at 2am than it was in the morning and evening. I came away from the tip way more knaquered than I did when I arrived. In saying that Barcelona is an amazing city and I will return- just not here.

Worth considering if you want a cheap place in that area but definitely the backpacker hostel end of the spectrum. Rooms are very basic, old furniture, a bit airless and depressing, you don’t get soap, towels are changed every second day, there are signs forbidding washing and drying your clothes and the whole place is VERY noisy - all the doors and latches, pipes etc are old and make a lot of noise and the sound really echoes and carries, as do voices (although there was no partying when I was there). On the plus side it seems safe and the staff are helpful and they have lots of info about tours, launderettes etc and the location is ideal if you want to be between the Rambla and the cathedral. It is easy to find and close to the metro.

We stayed in this hostel for one night with a total of 5 friends. It was one of the cheapest options in the city which was on a very central position. The rooms were very basic but that was expected for the price. We had a shared toilet and bathroom and also a shower in the middle of our room which we didn't found very useful because it delivers no privacy and it wets the room. Overall it was clean and comfortable so nothing to complain about that.

The only bad thing about the hostel was that about 6 hours after checking in the guy who checked us in knocked on our room and said that we paid with a fake 20 euro's. The fake 20 euros was a 'fake fake' which is immediately recognized as fake money as it was made very amateuristic with paper and glue. It was in no way possible that we paid with the fake 20 euros and we felt very insulted as we checked the money both when we paid it. Also we paid only with 20 euros notes so it would be very stupid to put only one fake between it. When we went 5 minutes later back to the reception, where the manager was, everything was ok and we didn't hear anything about the fake money and it seems the guy tried to scam us 20 euros.

The hostal is centrally located in a walking street. There is free wifi. Good value for the money. Note they charge extra to pay with Credit Card, have cash on hand and save 3 €

The room was small, but it had everything I needed. The bathroom was right beside the room though it wasn't in it. My room was cleaned everyday and they would change the sheets and the towels. The place was quiet even if the hotel is really close to La Rambla, which is perfect. I could go almost anywhere by walking. And, the staff was nice and calm. I would stay there again for sure!
