Liked: Not too far away from the sightseeing hotspots such as the Ramblas and Casa Battló, the staff was very friendly. We had some minor problems with our room and shared bathroom and once mentioned they were fixed within five minutes time! The hostel is not accessible without a key or ringing the doorbel, so I felt quite safe leaving the luggage there. The hostel (reception and breakfast area) is small but very cosy, the atmosphere was very nice. The biggest plus was the staff, because they were not only friendly, but also took the time to have individual conversations with us.

Disliked: Not a dislike, but two ideas that might improve the hostel a bit. 1) Airconditioning in the rooms, we couldn't get our room cool and filled with fresh air whatever we tried (also during the day time we tried several things). There was a big electric fan though, but I think airco feels a lot more pleasant. 2) The breakfast and lounge area of the hostel is not large and most people sleep upstairs. There is a couch in the common area there, why not but a water boiler and a table with board games out there? It not only gives more space for people to hang out, but also spreads it out more evenly. But again, these are just ideas, they weren't problems that made us dislike the hostel in any way!
