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.

Im afraid this hostel / prison was a complete disaster. The place is very poorly managed with rude staff who did not take on board any of my concerns re excessive noise late at night. When I protested the next morning that member of staff simply shrugged her shoulders and did nothing. The rooms, whilst clean are more like prison... More

This is placed on booking.com as a hotel! This is rearranged office building or something like that. This SHOULD NEVER be offered to people as hotel. It is extremely misleading. After calling the reception from another country, since I forgot the charger, I was told they will not mail it to me. It is their policy. This is very unpolite.... More

This hotel (Hostel), is known as Centre Esplai Albergue at other hotel booking sites. No WAY is this a Hotel. Very disappointed and very misleading it should not be hosted on hotel booking websites. First of all, it looked like a prison cell. Even Prisoners get a TV. Then you get one smal sachet as a soap/shampoo. A small Towel.... More

I decided on this hostel as I was planning a trip to watch football at Camp Nou and I like to be close to the airport which is a 20 minute walk from terminal 2 (avoid the motorway and choose the little road which runs adjacent to it called Cami Cal Mones - look at google maps). I had seen... More

So I stayed and this location with my family as it was close to the airport and the photos looked great. When I got the Hostel, I thought that I had arrived in the worst neighbourhood of Barcelona, it all looks a bit rough. We stayed in a room of 4. Beds had lots of hairs in them, room was... More
