Liked: -Definitely the location! Few minutes walking to the see, las Ramblas, metro/train station... Couldn't imagine myself a better located place. -Cleanliness. It's not "just" clean, it's so clean that you can eat from a shower cabin. -The staff. Even thou at first sight they might seem old and grumpy, all of them are very friendly and helpful. XO XO for you, guys! :) -Free Wi-Fi.

Disliked: These points below are NOT meant to complain or to repel you from this hotel. I did know of them (from other people's comments) and repeat them only for you to be prepared. -No AC. It's boiling hot in Spain! -Not every room has the view seen on the pics. In fact, only a few of them have. Our was small, and from the window we could see only walls, with a perfect view of our neighbours' room (and vice versa). -What comes from the two mentioned, you can either open the window and try to avoid watching other guests (hoping they'll do the same) or keep your privacy along with keeping the temperature going up. -Again, only a few rooms have showers and toilets. We had to use those next to the room, which wasn't bad, but a bit irritating. Especially with the security camera on the way. -After 7 p.m. you must use the entry phone to have the main door opened. Not that there was any problem, even around 6 a.m. or so, but it was kinda weird. So only a little inconvenience. -The Wi-Fi had its ups and downs. Good to check e-mails and facebook, poor for song from YouTube. But ALL IN ALL, as I said before, taking into consideration the price and all the advantages, it's a good place to stay if you're rather into visiting Barcelona than relax in luxury.

13 April 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Liked the opportunity to stay in a single room which was small, but very clean and cosy. There is also a small sink in the room, and generally there is no noise coming in from the street.

Disliked: There is only one shower in the hall for every floor, so during busier summer periods you have to be lucky to get your turn. However, the cleanliness makes up for this.

Liked: - Location was ok.

Disliked: - Hollow walls. In our room we could hear the noise from washroom. For some reason we could hear housekeeping at 6am moving the bed around. We could hear the people in the kitchen from the building next door. - Reception is on the 3rd floor. - No view from room - Bathroom smells smokey - Staff was hit or miss

Liked: The location was very good, the staff was nice and the room and bathroom was clean. We had everything we wanted (airco, balcony, sink) and we didn't have any problems.

Disliked: The only things we disliked, is that we didn't have a fridge, although we knew that there wouldn't be one and that there wasn't really a chance to meet other people in the hostel.

Liked: We booked at the last minute and then were really late due to delayed flight. Was nice to have 24 hr desk. The outside looked a little shady at 4 am when we arrived (better in daylight with shops opened, etc,) but room was really clean and well equipped suite. Would stay again.

Liked: Low price and good location ,just oposite of the railway station are the good cacacteristics.The bad ones:We took a room with a double bad.The room is small,and there is no climatisation.It's extremely hot in the night,impossible to sleep.No facilities,no Tv,no toilet,no shower you have just one bed,lavabo and 4 walls.You share the shower room with others and there was some strange smell in it.There was warm water but not hot.I had much betters hostels for this money or a a bit more.Generaly i don't recomend it for couples.but if you want to spend a night or two alone ,or you are on short business travel this hotel might be good option.

Liked: The staff are very helpful and the place is really really clean. Its 15m from the town and 15m walk to the beach so you are right in the middle.Easy to get to and the tourist bus stops just up the road.No breakfast, no towels but food is everywhere on the streets.Really nice people.Oh yes - although it says on the 1st floor... take the lift as it actually works out to be 4 flights up...Highly recommend.
