17 April 2014

Liked: Music. There was a nice radio station on all the time in common area and that was about the only thing I enjoyed about this hostel.

Disliked: Almost everything! The room was dark with a tiny window facing some wall, thus no light in whatsoever any time of the day. The bed sheets were so thin you could barely feel they existed. The lockers were nice size, but it took me a while to find one that actually had a key on. There're no allocated beds so you have to wonder whether the bed you're choosing is already occupied - happened to me. It was also loud in the room even at night, likely from people drinking in the kitchen - apparently no curfew over low late you can be partying. The breakfast was barely edible - juices tasted like some kind of chemical waste. All in all, probably the worst hostel experience I've had.

Liked: The location of the hostel was very central.2 minutes walk and you are in La Rambla! And also the staff was very helpful and trying their best.There were lockers and plugs for each bed.

Disliked: The showers were too small.There was no internet connection in the room at second floor.Breakfast was bad but, for this price we can say average.Additionally, the room was too small for 8 beds.2 people cannot move between the beds at the same time.

Liked: It had free computers with internet. breakfast was included, also the bed sheets,shower and kitchen were clean. and staff spoke english very well. location was superb. A lot of young people and it doesnt feel scary there - as I was traveling solo.

Disliked: It is very loud and I have no rest a at all because of partying of my neighbors. The lift in the property is somewhat scary because every time you ride it, it feels like it will fall down, it trembles so much and is barely moving. . Also I wasn't aware I needed to pay the 10 EUR deposit for the key (although Its possible I did not notice it on the info about the hostel. nevertheless, be aware :) )

Liked: It´s got a really good location and free breakfast (which wasn´t that good but whatever, it´s free). There are also HUGE lockers in the rooms, enough to fit my checked luggage. Very cheap. :)

Disliked: The wifi is only available in the common area, and one night the staff shut down the common area at 1am, which was ridiculous. The place is not the cleanest, but I´ve seen worse.

Liked: The location is perfect, a 2 minute walk and you are right on La Ramblas and can find a metro stop there to take you across the city. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

Disliked: Only four toilets and four showers per floor (two male and rwo female). There were approximately 10 rooms on our floor so between 60 and 80 people sharing those facilities. Wifi only works on ground floor.
