Liked: The location is perfect both for those, who want to enjoy excellent beaches and those, who prefer strolling trough the interesting quarters. All that you need for comfortable staying is here: cosy rooms with conditioner, bathroom (private or shared depends on the room type you choose), wi-fi, microwave and drinks dispenser in the hall. The hostal is open 24 hours, so you are able to hang out all night long! The staff is very friendly, if you need something they are always ready to help you.

Disliked: For those who are on a healthy diet, the lack of cooler may be an inconvenience.

Liked: It was very clean and t he air conditioning was great.

Disliked: A kettle and facilities for tea and coffee in a mug would have been great. There was a coffee machine which you pay for which gave tiny amounts in plastic cups,just not the same as a cup of tea.

Liked: Lovely place to stay and everything was on the doorstep! Run by a family who are really friendly and willing to help. Do not have a bad word to say about the place! Will be coming back to this hostel again.

Disliked: The entrance to the building is deceiving as it doesnt look great on the outside but dont judge a book by its cover as inside was fine.

Liked: Very cleaniness, excellent location (10min by walk to the sea or to center -la ramblas-), good value for money. Good fridge, microwave and drinks available for guests

Disliked: It's written in very small letters in the booking reservation paper that the IVA (national tax) is not included in the global price. So you have to pay 7% more than the price in your booking reservation

Liked: Very nice, clean and atmospheric room. Air conditioning, Rooms cleaned daily. Free towels and bed linen. Large windows with balconies (!) and wooden shutters shading room effectively. Private very clean bathroom. Open 24 hours ,about 3-4 at night, the door opens immediately. Great location in Riberia district with hundreds of cafes and restaurants - just go down and you can sit down for breakfast or tapas. An excellent starting point for both wandering the streets of old Barcelona, and go to the beach (Barceloneta), towards the Sagrada Familia and Montjuïc etc.

Disliked: No breakfast, thin walls, noise from the street, but it's obvious because hostal is in the city center

Liked: Proximity to public transport, the hop-on hop-off open bus tours, the arc de triof and markets/plazas and museums. The staff were friendly and did their best in communicating with us despite not knowing any English and we not knowing any Spanish. We had no qualms about leaving our luggage with them after checkout and picking it up later.

Disliked: Located on the third floor and only accessible by a marble staircase which was a little bit worn down from use. Noone mans the front desk so when you arrive you can be left twiddling your thumbs - best to make a noise so the man in the office hears you! The staff only seemed to know the local languages (Catalan/Spanish), and struggled with communicating otherwise. Internet facilities were coin operated, 1 euro for every 30 minutes. This was fine but in comparison to other hostels we have been in it could have been better; other hostels were cheaper, had better atmosphere, had free breakfast and internet facilities and there were staff who knew languages other than the local ones.

Liked: Very clean, the location is great, other hostels are cheaper, but this one worths it.

Disliked: There was no breakfast, although it says so on the website. Also, it turned out to be a bit more expensive, because you cannot see the taxes added to the price on the website.
