Liked: Very close to Sants station in a non-tourist, quiet area that seemed to be safe. it looked to be very clean.

Disliked: A little bit tricky to find. They did explain that it was on the 2nd floor. Kitchen a bit small.

Liked: Great atmosphere, VERY VERY CLEAN!! they also do a little something special every night (could be sangria at 20:00, etc).

Disliked: - bunk beds -> not so good if the person above or below you moves, as it may wake you up- no full stovetop... but you can cook pasta etc. in a rice cooker they have.

Liked: We stayed for 4 nights here. The staff are very friendly and helpful! (thanks a lot); location is good, just few minutes walk from 3 station exits (one of which is the main station that connect you to airport or other main cities); the room is clear and enough space with large locker (big backpack, no problem); also there is a kitchen with sufficient equipments as well.

Disliked: There are only 2 computers (with internet access) in the common area, sometime have to wait for a relatively long time to use. but it's not really a big problem; there seems not much restaurant to choose around at night; and the door closer is too noise when opening, you will surely be woken up by it when sleeping (even you open it very carefully...)

Hi !
I see you stayed with us last year! :) Just wanted to let you know that we have solved some of the issues you did not like about the hostel then . There are 3 computers now in the common area and we have fixed the dorm's door so it doen't sound so much when closing.You should have asked us for advice about restaurants, there are many different option around the area!
Anyway, thank you for your comments, as you see we take good note and try to improve thanks to your feedback! :)
