The Pension was close to La Ramlas and the railway station so it was easy to get to. The square by the station had a lot of activity during the day and evening, but my room was quiet. The only hassle was the lack of any fridge on the premises left no place to store heat sensitive medicines. Caretaker suggested... More

It's not a fancy place, it doesn't have the most attractive rooms but it's good if you want to save money and just go there to sleep. The location is the best thing about this pension. I've read the reviews given before on Booking.com saying that's really dirty and it's true it's not the cleanest place. I would have preferred... More

First of all the location of pension is amazing, just near to everything and far from crowd. The staff around the place is very polite and helpful. Room is everything you need, the only thing missing is small refrigerator! General experience 5 of 5, thanks we gonna visit again for sure.

Fantastic location - just off the Ramblas. We got an airport transfer to Las Ramblas and then walked 15 mins to the hostel. The rooms are clean. We had a shared bathroom, but we felt like we were the only ones using it. The place feels really secure and safe. The price is very reasonable. I'm not usually a fan... More

Taxi driver had some difficulty locating it but the location was awesome! We were able to walk pretty much everywhere. Rooms were what you should expect; tired looking but generally clean. The location, security of turning in keys as you leave to venture out and the price are what would draw me back to stay at this location again. Mini... More

I had to wait 15 minutes before anyone opened the door. The guy at the reception was dull, unwilling to answer any questions. Don't be fooled by pictures, the reality is much worse: walls are stained, curtain in the shower looked like about to collapse. The another guy at the reception (with a long hair) was smiling and nice. During... More

Stayed here on a short break with friend. This is 100% a hostel but our room was fine, it was clean, the bed was alright, the bathroom was fine. It was also safe and someone was always at the desk to let you in. The location is also fantastic for Barcelona, 2 minutes to the bottom of the ramblas, near... More
