Very well located hostel: close to a central metro station (Passeig de Gracia), a short walk-away from Las Ramblas, el Raval etc. Nice neighbourhood. It's not hard to find if you follow the instructions. It's very clean and well-looked after. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are quite basic but that's enough for what you need when... More
