Cody Hellstern thinks…

"We stayed in the apartment, and it was very clean and modern. Good location just a 5 minute walk east of the actual hostel."

Rachael Reaich

06 April 2008 Rachael would recommend this property

Liked: everything was great apart from the fact that they lock the hostel from 4am until 7am so anyone who is going out, especially since all clubs in barcelona stay open till 5am or 6am, becomes a big problem. We had to sit outside for quite a while until they would open the doors after 7am! This aside it was a lovely, clean, safe hostel and everyone was very friendly.

Customer review

22 March 2008

Liked: The location was great - one street over from a downtown shopping street, right around the corner from the cathedral plaza, etc. We easily walked anywhere in the downtown sector in fifteen minutes. The lobby area is also very welcoming, if small. However, there was a strange smell on the stairs that became worse every time you walked up and down them. At full capacity, this hostel was very difficult to stay in - the girls bathroom was always crowded. Furthermore, for those staying in the large mixed room, things were very noisy and there was no good place to change. Part of the reason why the large dorm rooms were so noisy was the lack of shelves. The small lockers provided are only enough for a small amount of belongings, so moving things around, getting stuff out of a suitcase, and packing up became a noisy process. Staying here for two or three nights would be fine, but nothing more.

Cédric Sandoz

18 March 2008 Cédric would recommend this property

Liked: Central near Catalunya Square and the ramblas. It's clean because it's cleaned eveyday, the4 sheets are made everyday between 12h and 14h. The staff is friendly and they also provide help if necessary.There is a big kitchen, a diner and a living room full of information complete by a small bookcase full of Guide du routard and Lonely Planet from Barcelona, Spain, and other destination. Some of them pretty recent. There is free wifi and you can go over the net for 80 cents for half an hour.The only thing which can be recommende is to take earplugs because the isolation is not so good especially from the outside, the window.are to old. If the temperature outside is cold it may be also a bit to cold and you will have to take one extra blanket. But the beds are fine, the lockers just the right size for a small traveler's bag. Finally the price is really cheap for the service that you get. I'll defitely go back there.

Liked: This hostel was one of the nicest I've ever stayed in, the staff were super helpful, the whole place was cleaned by the most thorough cleaners I've ever met and it was in the heart of the gothic area and within walking distance of the famous Las Ramblas. If I ever visit Barcelona again I would have to stay there!!!
