Liked: Everything was well organised. Alberguinn's is structured so that you can go there and rest from your day of sightseeing or night of partying. When you move into the sleeping area, there's total silence (aside from the occaisional snoring person maybe). The breakfast is included although its aim is more to give you a starter and not a total nutritous meal. All the rooms are tidy and nice - to be honest, you really want to go there at the end your day to sleep. Pluss the staff is young and very friendly - they are the same people as you are: traveling, experiencing life and they know what might be of interest to you in the city. I was very pleased with Alberguinn's service to me and a great value for money.

Liked: The receptionist was AMAZING - she was so helpful with any question we had, and took the time to mark an entire map with every place we mentioned (she knew where all of the places were!). Everything was clean and it was so nice that they gave you a locker to keep your stuff in.

Disliked: It would have been nice to have a bathroom that you just shared with the other people in your dorm rather than basically everyone in the hostel. Also, it was very VERY noisy at night...hard to fall asleep and people moving around at all hours of the night.

Liked: Great spot to stay if you're heading off to a football match or need to stay close to the train station. Otherwise it's a bit out of the way if you want to get to La Ramblas or other places like that.

Disliked: Sam left no negative feedback.

Liked: Close to Barcelona Sants train station. Clean bathroom. Very nice, helpful staff. Provided sheets & towels (for a fee).

Disliked: Noisy location. People coming & going in the room all night. Breakfast provided (great!) but was just white bread, cornflakes & coffee. Very little character.
