Liked: Cheap hostel, good location. Perfect for a short term. Members of staff are really friendly.

Disliked: Not very clean when it comes to toilet and showers. The water kept coming up. Sometimes a bit noisy at night,but you should be tired after an eventful day and still sleep well.

Liked: Exactly what you need out of a cheap hostel. Nothing more, nothing less.

Disliked: Two things... 1) Hard to find once you get to las ramblas. Make sure you find the doorway with 44 over it on las ramblas. It will say hotel Forno but just push the alarm button and you'll be buzzed up. Then it's up a flight of stairs and the door will be open. 2) pretty loud if you intend to stay in and sleep.

Liked: the staff were very helpful, easy to ask about where to go..the washing service was ideal, left it with the girls and was done when i got back, has a kitchen and located halfway down las ramblas, beds quite comfy and even though on las ramblas pretty quiet.

Disliked: bit hard to find, and not a very big social area, and ran out of hot water, but they are all minor things

Liked: This hotel is in a very good locación! The staff is great! Close to a plaza with lots of bars and places to hang out. Two showers and two bathrooms. Laundry services!

Disliked: The place dones not have AC. So it can get hot a little in the summer. Also, the place looks a little old, but nothing really supper nasty to complain about. Also, even though in the second floor, it is also a full 4 set of stairs (Therefore, if you haves heavy bag, that at be a problem.) overall, more positives than negative! I like the stay!
