City break

25 July 2010

Liked: Good, secure locker, big shower facilities, fairly decent breakfast inc. in the price. 24 hour reception is a good thing, although pretty much standard it seems.

Disliked: It´s well communicated but pretty far out from the centre, however the prices are the same as any hostel on las ramblas. There´s no air-con in the rooms, only not ever so powerful fans. There´s also the fact that the kitchen/lounge closes at midnight, and no alcohol (in theory) is allowed on the premises. The two factors combined mean there's not really much a holiday/party atmosphere, and it's not as easy to meet people as in other places.

20 July 2010

Liked: Most of the staff was helpfull- they provided (one) map for us, and noted the "must-see" spots.

Disliked: Kitchen is closed from midnight till 9am, which means you can't get to your food from midnight until 9am--which is pretty ridiculous. "Lights out" at midnight, means that you can't talk nor have your light on in your room--even if you're the only person in it.... why? i'm not too sure. They only gave us one map, for a 3-night stay of two people... our map got lost halfway through our stay, and the hostess simply denied providing another without any explanation. Ridiculously overpriced for a 16-person room.

Liked: Staff were super friendly and hard working. The english language barrier was prominent.

Disliked: It's as if it were designed as a no-fun layout. The rooms are very close to the lounge/kitchen which is small and has nothing interesting besides German and spanish gossip magazines. Internet didn't work for people with Macs.

Liked: Friendly staff. Very informative and quite knowledgeable about the city. I didn't even need to go to the tourist information points as the staff in the hostel seemed to know the city quite well. Washing machine and dryer available as well which is great. It is not located in city centre but with metro it is quite accessible. You'd need a metro ticket (get a T10, valid for 10 travels. It's cheaper than 10 singles!) in Barceona anyway. There are food shops around (with a 24 hour shop, 2 minutes from the hostel) as well which is a bonus.I have already recommended the place to some friends who were going to Barcelona. When I go to Barcelona again, this would be one of the places I'd consider to stay in again. Oh, and good sized safety boxes available too!

Disliked: It was all good but maybe that there is only one computer available for Internet use. But who wants to go to Barcelona and stay on the net!!! There wasn't an issue with this in my stay there tho. Also, no gas cooker available but microwave available. Pleasant experience overall. Recommend it.
