Great location. The inside is very very clean. Loved the bathrooms.if you have ear plugs bring them- the street is noisy at night. Free breakfast included from 8-930. It is a 24 access hostel yet the staff can get annoyed letting someone in after 2 (sorta reminded me of sneeking out to a party and coming back to grandma's house..grandma... More

My mom and I walked past many beautiful hotels on our way down La Rambla to Hostal Albi. When we arrived at the hostel we were quite put off by the graffiti covered door and bare lobby. We were buzzed in and headed up. Apprehensive, we got into the hostel and were VERY pleasantly surprised. Maîte was very welcoming and... More

We expected very basic accommodation: But description and photos are totally producing wrong and far too good expectations! Mold and other people’s hair in the bathroom; Humid, clammy and not cleaned room; Blurry linen; Construction-site-like floor tried to hide with a dirty carpet; Uncomfortable beds (feeling every spring in your back); Extreme noise at night (we could not get a...

The facilities are basic but are acceptable if you just want a place to lay your head. However the attitude of the woman on the night shift was not acceptable. The location is good for enjoying the night life but on returning to the hostal at 2am ( early by catalan standards ), I received complaints from her that she... More

On day of leaving we were disappointed cause on the room doors is written you have to leave the room before 12clock but receptionist force us to leave at... More

A great place if one is looking for a bed for the night. I couldn't fault this place. I had a single room which was more than adequate for my needs, clean, wash had basin, wardrobe and balcony. Staff were amazing Nouvella especially, helped me out no end about how to get around. To be honest I was a bit... More

This is a simple hostel, basic beds and showers, but so nice. Everything was very clean and the staff was so friendly and helpful. The breakfast included was simple, but a really nice addition. We had a sink and mirror in our room (the three bed) which was helpful with getting ready. Also, the location is perfect. Would definitely recommend... More

I usually pay strict attention to what I read on Trip Advisor, but I followed a hunch and decided to book anyway. The staff was excellent, giving me great advice on everything I asked. My room was smallish, but very clean. The shared bathroom had evidently been recently renovated and was very clean. All in all, I had a great... More

However the room which they gave us had the window next to the WC and bathroom in common with the entiire floor, from where all sorts... More
