Amanda Clark thinks…

"We stayed in a private room in the apartments down the road. It was so quiet and clean. Great kitchen facilities and very adequate breakfast. Loved staying in this apartment."

Customer review

10 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Good Hostel, dishonest advertisement. Bad things: 1) There is a strict curfew from 4am to 7am. This NEEDS to be stated on the website, would have picked a different hostal had we known. 2) In the rule book you receive upon check in it states that cleaning is from "12-2pm" but she vacuums and begins cleaning around 10:30am and looks annoyed that you are in the way. 3) There is no noise allowed after 10:00pm, NONE. Kitchen closes, common room closes, you will be shushed at in your room, and you will be shushed at in the lobby. Good things: Clean, good breakfast, warm blankets, great location, awesome staff. Overall, enjoyed our stay, just wish the property description was more honest!

Customer review

16 October 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I noticed that the average age of guests in this hostel is relatively high which probably ensured the quiet nights. From 4 to 7 you can definitely sleep peacefully as the hostel is closed down during that time --- this kinda made it hard to go out to the clubs very late. A big plus are the balkonies you have in every room and the dining area. Sitting outside with a bottle of wine and some tapas, you can suck in the atmosphere of Barcelona really well.

Anna Przybylska

14 October 2009 Anna would recommend this property

Liked: Great location! also very clean, as cleaned every day. I loved recycling bins in the kitchen, shelf with the book guides downstairs and large "living room". Minuses: kitchen was closed overnight till 12 in the afternoon so the ' living room" was - therefore there was no other place than the dorms to stay and chat with people. till 1 am u could stay in the downstairs area by reception but later receptionist is probably not gonna be happy as cant go to bed. especially the guy, who was miserable, and looked pissed off when he had to wake up at 5 am to open the door for us as we were leaving early. overall positive but some of the staff not really friendly.

Liked: I really loved this place and it's definately going to be my hostel again on my next visit to barcelona. It was great, very nice and clean rooms, bathrooms very clean, kitchen as well, nice chill/living room. Very friendly staff. Yes, I would definately recommend it. Very close to Ramblas and plaça Catalunya, nice location in the middle of town (but not noisy there)

Rani Cheema

02 October 2009 Rani would recommend this property

Liked: I have only stayed in 3 other hostels before this one and the other hostile had cleaner bathrooms and extra bathrooms. The photo that was taken with the wide lens is The Red Room and it was cramped (8 beds) and tinier than the other rooms. According to the other people that stayed there they said it was the best hostile they had stayed in on their trip but for me I stayed at nicer places so... there ya go lol. Also that staff wasn't bad. Other people complained about them but I thought they were cool one guy seemed like he hated his job but he put a fake smile on.
