31 August 2011 Yolanda would recommend this property

Liked: It was in a really good location near the beach, la Rambla, Plaça Reial and Plaça Catalunya. There was no curfew and the staff were friendly. It was fairly quiet at night, not near a main road.

Disliked: Although there is a kitchen available, its use is restricted between 6 and 11pm, so it's rather busy. The showers could be improved with more space for changing and more control over temperature and water flow, instead of just the push button currently there.

Liked: I really liked that the property was near the beach, la rambla and had many different bars and shops just round the corners. I could buy everything I needed near me.

Disliked: It was so hot in our room, and we could'nt fix it, so it was a little bit hard to sleep. And that you could hear everything outside the room. It said that they would clean our room every day, but it never happened.

Liked: Albergue New York Hostel is in the best area of Barcelona with lots to see and do, and La Rambla just a stone throw away. They offer free breakfast and internet and the rooms are a good size.

Disliked: No air conditioning so had to survive with a fan, but it was ok.

Liked: the location,the fact that it was close to a lot of nice bars,the old gothic building,the fact that you can walk to most worth visiting sites

Disliked: the fact that they give you wrong information on how to get from the airport to the hostel by metro(you had to change at Passeig de Gracias and this wasn't mentioned on the website) so we got lost for like an hour and a half, which is not a pretty thing on the heat in july; also when i told this to the reception they mumbled something and seemed not to care or not to understand what i was saying. the fact that in july it's terribly hot in the building at any hour during the day or night and there is no air conditioning, only a ventilator that doesn't do much; breakfast is extremely sweet for someone who's not used to this.

Liked: The location was perfect!

Disliked: Although the location was perfect, the total impression of the hostel was not very good. The staff was not always very friendly and the free breakfast was not tasty. You can use the kitchen only untill 10 pm and you can only grap sometime out of the refrigerator after the breakfast has been served. However, the location is perfect and in Barcelona you only need a place to sleep!!
