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: good localization, cheap. full equipped kitchen.

Disliked: Room wasn't clean (dust on shelves, ditry pillows). Bed was shaky. So if you don't like dust, you would better choose other hostel. But it was really cheap.

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: Everything was clean. The kitchen had evrything you could need and it was easy to leave our food and drinks in there. Our room had a balcony which was great. Staff was very nice and helpful and spoke English quite well which was very important for us as we do not speak much Spanish. Good location, can either walk or take the metro which is only a block away. The lockers are huge, the two of us fit everything in one and still had room to hang up clothes.

Disliked: this is not a party hostel, so if you are looking for somewhere more lively this is not it. the beds only had a sheet and small blanket, if it were colder that would have been a problem. The men's bathroom did nit have a sink, had to wait for one of the mixed bathrooms to be free.

Liked: It was located in a nice quiet area close to the metro station, had a supermarket right next door and the room was clean, bright and airy. Bed was really comfortable.

Disliked: the bathroom facilities were quite small, the power kept tripping out in the kitchen and the plumbing needs some attention.Although there is 24 reception to gain access at night the night staff have to go down 3 floors to open door for you when you ring the bell.

Liked: More or less exactly in the center of the city, with metro access just around the corner so you can reach any part of the city with the metro in no time. Near main streets and city life but still in a relatively quiet and peaceful part of the city. High ceilings, internet access, tv and radio. Definitely worth the money.

Disliked: The room was quite hot - no air-conditioning. Would not recommend the room in high summer. The room is located in a quiet area but the walls themselves are thin (therefore you can hear other guests passing by, chatting, etc.)

Liked: The location is close and central to most of Barcelona, easy acccess. The price for the stay was excellent. The man who let us in was very helpful and friendly, as were most of the staff there. The rooms, showers and kitchen areas are clean and tidy.

Disliked: The showers were very small and lack of hot water was frustrating, out of 3 days I had we had no hot water. Not a major but having no key to front door and waiting was bit odd? On the website the directions are quite long and silly, as we found a quick simple easy way. Catch a train from the airport to central Barcelona, get off at Passeig de Gracia, change onto the L4 line and one stop to Girona. This seems a much easier way. Overall we had a pleasant stay, these are mere minors on the scheme of things
