“Excellent location and decent rooms!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The hostel is just minutes away from La Boqueria market and the main shopping areas, so that was very excellent. We walked about 15 minutes from the last stop of the Aerobus service that we took from the airport, so we did not have to spend much on transport to get to our hostel at all. We had a 3 bed private room, and it came with a sink as well. The room was clean and quite spacious. The toilet was a floor down, but it was very spacious and very clean. The hostel is on a street that has shops open till quite late, so you feel safe walking back to the hostel even at night.

Navigating to our room was confusing at first, because we had to take the lift up to the 2nd floor, walk up 2 floors, walk a passageway and then go down 1 floor. But overall, staff was friendly, wifi was available at the basement with couches, and it was an excellent choice of hostel for Barcelona and we really enjoyed our stay!

Very simple room for one person. The location is excellent but it is also very noisy. The room was simple but the mattress was very uncomfortable and the walls would definitely need some paint. The area is full of activities and shops.

- GREAT location. Walking distance from most things you'd want to see or an easy metro

- Friendly staff, there 24 hours which was nice/felt safe

- Private room was nice. It's not a hotel - don't expect one. But it was clean, spacious, and we had our own sink.

- Bathroom was cleaner than a lot of hostels I've been to.

- I'd definitely recommend!

I was very happy about my holidays: the staff was always nice and available (24h receptionist at least) both in terms of time and kindness; you're literally on Las Ramblas; cleariness was good both in the common areas and in the room; price was the top!
Don't forget, guys, we're talking about an hostel which actually offers lots of different room choices: it's a basic accomodation and the risk to find drunk and noisy people is average.
My cousin and I were in a double room and we didn't party or looking for crazy holidays.
I'm glad I've spent my days in there...come on, you're in Barcelona, you don't need to live there, you just need a bed and a clean and cozy place!

The location is great, just a few steps from Rambla and Boqeria Market/ Liceu Metro Station. I had the room inside the building so no noise was heard. But the rooms are poor - very simple, basic stuff, there is a sink in the room but the bathrooms outside. The price makes it reasonable to stay there. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

I did not like the hotel. The room I rented was tiny. Toilet and shower were outside the room.In the romm there was just a sink. There was no air circulation so I felt suffocating in the room, but I was afraid to turn on air-conditioning. A room window was tiny and the air does not come through it into the room. On the window hangs a dirty-dirty curtain. Lighting was terrible. I want to mention glass tumblers in the room. For me it was very difficult to get my bearings in the hostel premises, because to get to my room, it was necessary first to go to the elevator, and then to climb a bit on foot and walk down a long corridor. The only advantage of the hostel is its price, but, nevertheless, I think it is better to pay extra and stay in another place.
