“Not very friendly staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2011

For some reason the staff of this hotel (two peruvian or ecuadorean guys) think you're staying there for free because their attitude makes you feel unwelcomed. I would definetly go some place else. The rooms are real small. To the point that is hard to fit in the shower. The location is good close to the L1 Metro station and the train station. There is an excellent japanese restaurant just across the street.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2009

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights with my wife. Hotel rooms are pretty neat and clean. Rooms aren't that big have got private bathrooms. Bedsheets, blankets, pillows and towels were provided. Rooms were quipped with AC and a cupboard is available in the room. No food is provided. There is a PC available in the common area to access the internet. A guy is present at reception all the time but they don't speak English.
Hostel is well connected through metro. You can take the red line and goto metro station "Fabra i Puig". Hostel is just 50 metres away from the metro station.

Three minutes walk from Fabra y Puig metro. Download street map as locals do not seem to realise its whereabouts. No food available on premises. Supermarket within two minutes walk. Excellent location for exploring Barcelona. Cafes and bars close by. Check it out.
