Liked: Good Location on La Ramblas - easy Metro Access to all of Barcelona. Cheap for own room in this part of Barcalona, but VERY basic! Bed linen, towel, wash basin, safe in room and nothing else.

Disliked: My room (#24) at the side of the building over a side-street was VERY noisy till 2.00 or 3.00 in the morning, when the clubs close. The side street is narrow and you get a lot of echo at night!! Barcelona never sleeps in the summer!

Liked: Location was fine, close to the metro, safers inside the rooms (although I didn´t use)

Disliked: the second pavement has poor accomodations, with doors that don´t lock and an akward atmosphere. Could be refurnished. Luckly I managed to be transfered to the 1st pavement. They could also tell there are stars sto go up and that there are differet accomodation inside the hostel, with different prices. When I arrived, they say I didn´t have a booking. Hopefully I got it printed and it was low season.

Liked: This property is situated at the bottom of La Ramblas so ideal for those who want to be in the heart of the action

Disliked: There were cracks in the ceiling that you could see through to the room above you, there was renovation work going on but not informed of prior to booking, the door to the room did not fit the casing properly so there was a gap at the bottom.

Liked: the best on this place was the location.. la rambla with its nightlife is just wonderful. and its in the centre with near metro (underground) station, so if you're looking for a bed to stay just for night, in great location and reasonable price, i can recommend it

Disliked: hot shower was not for 24 hours, but i could stand it with the hot weather outside, absence of kitchen to make a breakfast

Liked: the hostel is situated literally on la ramblas so there is no need to spend loads on travel. the beach is literally a 10 minute walk away also. the facilities are very basic, however the staff are extremlely friendly, helpful, and they do change your sheets/towels everyday. overall, it is worth the money.

27 April 2010 Samuel would recommend this property

Liked: There are some rooms without windows to outside, but this may be for the better as the hostal is above a bar which can be noisy. In all, i had a great stay and felt that my things were safe and secure in my room. The cleaning lady does a great job and comes around every day. A great hostel in my opinion.

Liked: the best thing was only location. i was really disappointed with it. it is cheap, ok, but i think you should give little more money and stay in a better place. and also i was a bit scared, because the door couldn' t lock up good. at night was so loudy! cant imagine that shouts in the street. i slept, maybe at 7 am!..
