15 June 2011 Belinda would recommend this property

Liked: The area was close to the Gaudi attractions while also being a nice distance from all the tourist traps. Supermarket around the corner. free wifi was good and fast. It had a homely feeling due to the intimate kitchen area which made it easier to get to know other travellers.

Disliked: Surprisingly considering the homely atmosphere some staff were not as freindly as you would expect. Showers are very small and a few toilets in the private girls were so small that your knees pressed against the door (and im not a very big person) and bathroom sinks in mixed bathrooms have been installed on the wrong angle so it goes against gravity.

Liked: The location close to Sagrada Familia and to Metro station, safe district, close to a store. Friendly and helpful staff.

Disliked: When we were booking Ona Barcelona, we thought that a private room means, as it always means - a room for 2 with a private bathroom. It turned out it is not a standard in Barcelona. Our room was small and had neither a bathroom nor a sink. In the morning we had to use th common bathroom and a common sink. It was not a big problem, everyone can get accustomed to it, but I think it should be stated clearly in the offer that provate rooms don't have a private bathroom.

Liked: Location (for being near the metro station and a few metro stops away from the attractions). hair dryers available in the shared bathrooms.

Disliked: unstable wifi connection. low water pressure in the shower heads. sometimes heaters were not working, so showered in cold water. toilet cubicles were so small there was no leg space, so you have to sit sideways. but there's 2 private showers with toilet available.

Liked: Ona was perfect. A lovely, homely atmosphere, with excellent bathroom and kitchen facilities. Staff were friendly and unintrusive, and the location is walking distance from bus station, Sagrada Familia, Las Ramblas and just a block away from the Metro. The free towels was a life-saver. Will definitely be back next year.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Location right in the center. The staff - thank you to Nuria and the girl woking late at night for being so kind. Sweet girls. Good value for money - beautiful Eixample building. Very quiet and relaxed. Clean and without the chaos of a usual hostel. La ubicación en el centro. El personal - gracias a Nuria y la chica trabajando en la madrugada por ser tan amable. Son muy dulces guapas. Buena relación, calidad-precio. Un precioso edificio tipica de Eixample Muy tranquilo y relajado. Limpio y sin el caos de un hostel.

Liked: Good location, Internet for free, nice "living room"

Disliked: The bed in our "superior double" was not that good. The pillows were bad and the bed made strange noises at each movement on the matrace. So not a good option for couples in love...

Liked: Location was good. Room was large. Had own TV..

Disliked: Its very noisy.. Also the staff are the worst I have ever encountered in a hostel. Most places hire like minded travelers. But not this place. They need to be taught a lesson in customer service. They don't care about the guests or even make an effort to be friendly. Watch out for the guy at reception who listens to rock music. He is one of the night guys. He says he is busy whilst watching tv and eating lol. Employee of the year!!!

Liked: The staff was very nice. Especially the guy from Chile who prepared us yammy sangria one night :) The location's good, walking distance from Las Ramblas and Sagrada Familia.

Disliked: The security wasn't the strongest part of the hostel. The lockers in the dorm were plastic and could easily be openet without a key.

Liked: The rooms are very clean and tidy...Our room had a tv which was nice and they offer free internet use along with coffee and tea in the morning.

Disliked: They had NO hot water when we were there...so if you need a shower prepare to be frozen!! They also lock the front door to the building in the evening so you have to buzz and wait for someone to come and open the door for you. Not a big deal but they didnt let us know when we checked in...There are also no signs saying that the hostel is in the building.

Liked: Quiet and brand new hostel, central location, small and clean. This is no party hostel (and that's what I was looking for). Good price too, considering the location.

Disliked: Nothing.
