Service is good.
Ideal location for visit Barcelone.
Only problem: bad isolation between room.
Great ratio quality / price

I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel! Last minute I decided to arrive a day early in Barcelona and the price at the hotel I booked (NH Numancia) more than doubled! It is cheap, clean, with aircon. The aircon is noisy and you can hear your neighbours bang their doors but nothing my earplugs can't fix. With the price and superb location in Las Ramblas, it's good value. I wont stay more than a couple of nights though.

This "hostel" feels more like a no-frills hotel. It is located a short walk (3 minutes) off the Ramblas. As Rick Steves pointed out, the street it is on isn't one of the best, but it is fine.

I stayed here for three nights in August 2012 in a single bed room. The room was as expected - single bed, AC, ensuite bathroom with sink and shower. There was really not much character in this hotel at all. Barren white walls were the theme. I found that when I walked around my room after taking a shower, my feet became dirty from the grime on the floor of the room.

There is no wifi in the rooms, which I found annoying, though there is wifi in a character-less lounge next to reception.

Great spot, clean rooms, nice bathroom, easy check-in. Only complaint was the 2 single beds (which are in every hotel in Spain) were placed head to toe so couldn't push them together. Such a good location though so great value!

Writing on behalf of my daughter. Though first time hostal experience she was pleasantly surprised, and would highly recommend the hostal. The place was in a good sight seeing location and in light of her awful Barcelona experience, she spoke highly of the staff, who were helpful.

This place feels like a hotel, not a hostel. It is a very sterile environment however, the front desk staff were always helpful.

We had our own bathroom and two single beds. Everything was very clean. There is no wi-fi in the rooms which I find irritating as it means you have to sit in the common room which lacks any atmosphere. It is in a fabulous location which is all that matters in Barcelona. Why would you be sitting in your hotel in Barcelona anyway?!
