Just the number of toweld and prepared bedd was less than the number of people. We didnt request to complete them because we brought them with us. Otherwise everything was correct, i recommend it. PS: it's 30minutes far from Barcelone (Plaza catalunia, ...) by bus, but there are busses every 10-20 minutes 24hours a day, that go to barcelone center... More

Only complaint was that the aircon didn't particularly cool the room. Room was clean, staff were friendly and helpful. Got a picnic for breakfast as we were leaving early. Canteen was cheap and cheerful, food was okay.

Advantages-close to airport, clean and good service. Disadvantage- you can easy hear what is going on next door. During my stay someone was on the phone 5am so I couldn't sleep.Otherwise perfect cheap place to oversleep in airport area.

Stayed there for one night as I was taking a flight very early the following day. First things first: the place IS rough. If you're not accustomed to seedy places, consider going some other place, like seriously. We got there and went to the reception desk. Neither of the two people there raised their heads to acknowledge our presence. Politeness... More

this is not a hotel, this is some kind of refuge where tourists happen to sleep. the attention was friendly but not professional. the room smelled like cigarette and look like an army barrack, however it was the horrible location what really made us run away 2 hrs after we checked in. The hotel is located in the slums of... More

Wow. We were really not expecting this. My 7- year- old son said: "this hotel is creepy dad". Well, it's not really a hotel but we were not expecting this for 110 euros for one night. I have some pictures I will try to upload. The hostel is just a 15' taxi ride from the airport which cost us 22... More

Good choice to be close to the AirPort (A little far to city centre). We was there only for one night but it was really good. Recommendation do not open the window because there are a lot of mosquitoes.
