We stayed here for three nights arriving at midnight and leaving at 3am! The staff were lovely, really kind and helpful and the place itself was clean and tidy. It's a beautiful building handy for the metro and the main sights. It was so nice to have a little balcony on our room. Simple but clean. Would definitely stay here... More

Horrible staff, they were truly awful and a very uncomfortable bed which should have been replaced years ago. The Italian male receptionist was incredibly rude all the time, he made the stay at this hostel very uncomfortable and undesirable.

We spent two nights in Barcelona. The Hostal is centrally located and you can reach many attractions by foot easily. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The price was good and the room was clean.

We stayed here in June, 2013 (sorry I'm late!!!). It's a cute little hotel very well located. Just renovated, the rooms are really small (almost like cruise cabins) but everything is new and very clean. The bathrooms are ok (tight shower), and you have wifi and a very polite front desk willing to help you in anything you need. It's... More

The only thing this hostel is really near is the Sagrada. The area is very nice and felt safe but in order to get to any of the sites, you will be taking multiple metro lines, buses, or cabs, and better be good with directions (which luckily we are). That being said, the staff here was so nice and helpful... More

I thought this was a usual backpackers dive but was pleasantly surprised at the at the maintenance. It was kept clean always - even the shared bathroom. There was a good supply of towels. The 2 ladies, Amanda & Monica, who manage the place were very helpful & guiding you around the city. It was nice and quiet, perhaps because... More

There is 24 hours concierge (slight exaggeration) but our flight was delayed by3hours and we arrived in middle of the night; It was nice to buy a... More

Very clean and quiet (from streetsound) . Breakfast could improve - it´s basic and too many sweet things! Staff only there 8.00 to 18.00, but very friendly and helpful. Micro in commonroom and small fridge in every bedroom . Small but working shower, toilet and washbasin-unit and plenty of hot water. (Some rooms have shared bathroom). Futonbeds - we like... More
