decided to settle in this hostel because of the good reviews. We arrived late but we were greeted and immediately given a room key, even without taking the money. The hostel is located right near the metro station and near the pedestrian street of La Rambla. But despite this terrible night to the hostel to go - in the alley... More

Location is excellent for the subway and Las Ramblas - just off on a narrow side street that felt pretty safe even later at night TIP - there is no elevator and Hostal access is up 2 or 3 flights of steps - ok for those who are reasonably agile - but would be a problem for someone who has... More

Rooms are pretty spartan, but immaculate, with cleanup and new towels every day. We had a shared bathroom down the hall but with a sink in the room. The location can't be beat, just a half block off the rambla on a pedestrian-friendly street so nights were quiet. Neighborhood abuts the La Raval so you will see some prostitutes and... More

The staff in hostel was very nice, friendly and helpful. They gave us many infos about city and travelling. The room was always clean when we came back in the night or evening. The location is almost perfect, 3 minutes of walking to the metro station and La Rambla. Greetings

Our stay at this place was perfect. It was very clean, very secure and the staff were lovely. Came back every day to beds made and clean towels. I am someone not used to staying in hostels and the thought of sharing a bathroom with so many other people was a bit terrifying. The worry was clearly not needed though... More

We are very satisfied with the service. The room was very clean, due they cleaned it up every morning, we also get new towels every day. They were very nice and helpful even if they don't speak english (just a little bit), it really wasn't a problem. You can go out and come back whenever you want, it's in the... More
