I´ve been travelling pretty cheap for a while now, I was not deterred by the broken beds or the heat in summer. I was glad it was cheap. However, I was very upset by the rudeness of the staff and the general creepyness of those that worked there. One morning i went to have a shower, as you do, and... More

The only advantage is a good location. Everything else was absolutely negative. To begin with, it was hard to find a hostel because it now changed a name. Afterwards, we got a crappy small room with broken beds which did not look clean at all, instead of pillows we got ripped blankets. The next morning, breakfast was for 1 hour... More

The only +point is the location and the free wifi. The staff aint friendly, the rooms are dirty, the beds are broken/dirty, there aint any hot water inside, no toiletpaper,.. It was my first AND last time in this hostel. Make sure you look for an other hostel when youre goinig to Barcelona. I dont recommend it.

My friend and I are two young backpackers traveling Europe and can generally handle unfavorable situations just fine. We booked at the Ramblas Catalunya Hostel because it seemed like such a great deal! Once we got to Barcelona, however, we had difficulty even finding the place because it has no sort of sign outside at all and is in a... More

Firstly, from the street this place is called 'The Winsor', the name has changed but they haven't got round to sorting the sign. This is not the Ritz and there's no point pretending otherwise, but if you want a hostel for under 10 euro a night in the very centre of Barcelona this is the place. Breakfast is included and...

We stayed at this hostel for 2 nights and were very disappointed. The rooms were smelly, the bathrooms dirty and the breakfast poor.. There was only one bathroom with warm water for the whole hostel and therefore waiting times to shower were long! Also many beds were broken so sleeping (more or less in a whole) was very unconfortable and... More

One bathroom on two floors, no hot water, dirth and dust everywhere, you can't lock your room from inside just from the outside, everything is in the padlocks (including the fridge) except the lockers in the room (if you bring your own padlock then you can lock your things)...I think I sad enough. The only good thing is location, but... More

This was the extreme! Really bad, dirty, not good attention, nobody to help you. Please don't try it. You will not sleep and will be thinking about your stuff while you try to enjoy the city.
