“Not for us - we booked in and booked straight out.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2011

The location is fairly good. On entering the girl was pleasant enough.
The room was very cold. The light bulbs were taped onto the wall. The ensuite was put in a corner of the room with very flimsy walls and ceiling. Worst of all was the bed. It was smaller than a normal double and almost like a Z bed. I think it would have collapsed if we had slept on it and certainly we would have had backache.
We have never walked out of a place before. But this place was so depressing.
We had booked in for four nights. We offered to pay the one night but the Hostal insisted on two nights payment.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2010

We arrived very late at night. When I saw it, I wanted to stay just one night, that I already payed on the internet. The receptionist was not able to speak english and if we didn´t pay the whole stay before, we could go on the street.
The room was night mare, small and uncomfortable bed with strings. No window, no light.
In our private bathroom we find a cockoach 7 cm long.
The only thing I like about it was, that I really stay away the hostel as long as possible and and saw Barcelona.
Never again. But if you like cockroaches, this is the right place for you.

Hostal Centro in Barcelona is in the good zone, near the centre of city, but has some problems in his rooms: is not very clean and the private-rooms (for 2 people) have not the windows!!
Global opinion: 5+
