Before you proceed with the reservation, note that we are a FUN but not a PARTY hostel. Our purpose is to provide accommodation to people who come to Barcelona for a cultural visit and not to those who want to get wasted every night. We expect from you Respect!!! towards your roommates, the staff and yourself!!! We don't want alcoholics to spoil the atmosphere and reserve the right to refuse admission.

Age restriction
If you are younger than 18 we need your parents authorization for you to stay here.

Cancellation policy
A cancellation free of charge must be done at least 48 hours prior to the day of arrival.
If you do not show up for your reservation and do not contact us, we may charge the first two nights of the accommodation cost to your credit card.

The hostel is situated in a historical building, hence we can not have a hostel sign outside. Look up high for house number 17! Ring the bell that says entresòl-3, it's the golden bell on the bottom row!!!

Hasta Pronto :-)
