Liked: the place is at walking distance from the see.....an evening stroll of 1 km takes you there. It is very well connected by both bus and tram. (Welington and Marina are very close). The breakfast is nice. Supermarket Lidl is also very close by (150 m). A small kitchen is very handy.

Disliked: no air conditioner. but the available fan in the room does the job well. The window of the room has only 2 positions, either completely closed or open. It can not be kept tilted. :(. A big minus from my side.

Liked: Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Immaculate room. Great location. Value for money second to none (our hotel in Lloret for the remainder of our holiday was not as nice!). Excellent breakfast. It's above and beyond what you'd expect for your money when booking to stay in a hostel.

Disliked: No complaints.

Liked: The hostel provided many amenities that other facilities do not including towels, toiletries, a hearty breakfast, a in-suite kitchen, and internet access in the lobby. The location was within walking distance to the majority of the noteworthy attractions, including parks and the beach, yet was not crowded with people. For that reason, security was above average.

Disliked: No air conditioning in the rooms, but a fan is provided and the windows open completely.

Liked: I've got my own key suitable both for the main hotel's door and my room door- so I could leave the hotel any time i liked and back at any hour having key with me - absolutely independent. Hotel cleaning service was ok. The property location 75% - 15 to 20 min walking distance to city centre. Safe neighbourhood!

Disliked: Personel did not speak english or very little!!!!!!!!! Cleaning service at all!!! Internet available only at reception, printer out of order, lack of safety deposits in rooms.

Liked: The hostel was quiet, clean and had private rooms available for a very reasonable rate. The breakfast was excellent (fruit, yogurt, cereal, toast with various spreads, coffee/milk/juice, meats and cheeses) and secure parking was included in the price of the room. The hostel offered free internet. Staff were professional and helpful, and those working during the day all spoke fairly good English (the security guards who take over at night speak very little English, however. If you are arriving late, it would be helpful to have your reservation information printed off as this may make communication easier). There is also a really beautiful park just across the street from the hostel.

Disliked: This does not reflect on the hostel directly, which is actually very secure, but you should keep a close eye on your valuables when walking in the surrounding neighbourhood. We had a ruck-sack stolen from the back seat of our car as we were waiting to pull in to the parking lot! Violent crime does not seem to be a problem, but theft is. That being said, I didn't get the impression that this part of Barcelona was worse than others with regards to those problems.

Liked: Rooms were cleaned every day, stove&fridge in the rooms were good. There were some utensils, but not many (our room had no cups). Unfortunately our room wasn't ready when we arrived so had to stay in different rooms the first night. Breakfast is pretty good (cereal, toast, doughnuts!). The only thing was it was hot! There are fans but still hot. Very close to many sights&the beach

Disliked: Brenna left no negative feedback.
