Even for a simple place to stay, the interior was very worn and dull. No closet. No door to the bathroom. I guess I had the worst room of the place: the noise of the 8-lane street plus also every word spoken at the reception made it very difficult to sleep. At check-in the friendly receptionist told me that for... More

The building is near to city center, the sea too and is in the most beautiful part of the town. You have clean towels every day and free tea and coffe too. And free wifi. It's a lovely place to stay some day in the city. We have only one problem: there is one bathroom with toilet for four room,... More

The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the wi-fi was a great bonus. Yes there is an amount of noise from the... More

Location - it's true, it's convenient and close to a few attractions like Parc Ciutedella (the zoo is within), famous El Born food district, old town La Ramblas, 5-10min walk to the beach, and literally right across the street from the metro. We came from the airport and left for France using the same metro station and it was so... More

This is a good place to stay if you want to combine rather low costs with some disadvantages and a good starting points for sightseeing excursions. The metro is near, but you can also see the city on foot as the distances are not very tiring. The beach is also very near. The bad point of this pension is that... More

We had a triple room with private bathroom and balcony. Close to the Picasso Museum, the lively Born district and...the beach! There's a hop on hop off bus stop alomst in front of the door. We had no noise at all from the reception, but you wake up early if you leave the balcony door open because the station caller... More

The hostel is well located near the Ciudadela Park and Estacio del Francia train station, There are lots of shops around, as well as restaurants. 10 minutes to Ramblas, 10 minutes to Barcelonetta metro station. Our room was cleaned daily, the bathroom was shared with the other rooms, but that wasn't a problem. The reception guys were friendly, but spoke... More

We stayed in the hostel for 7 days and had 7 sleepless nights. As one other reviewer experienced our room was right next to the reception and the buzzer was ringing all night. Also staff, although nice, didnt really care that we were sleeping at 6am!!! Walls were paper- thin and they were talking really loud. The road outside our... More

Three of us decided to stay at a hostel as we didn't feel like we needed anywhere posh for a 3 day trip to Barcelona where most of the time would be spent out exploring however we were most pleasantly suprised when arriving to pension. It is literally opposite the train station and walking distance to las ramblas, the beauty... More
