The environment stinks of I don't know what. Like a giant sneezed all over the place. Check-in takes forever, we were 2nd on queue but waited 30mins. I think they use paper ledgers for book keeping and stuff. The room is ok sized. 4 single bunk dormitory type beds. Big enough toilet/shower using recycled water from rain etc. There is... More

Had a really enjoyable 3 night stay. Great size room (two sets of bunk beds) and lovely balcony. Breakfast was just what we needed before a day of exploring. Staff were all really friendly and helpful especially on reception and the lovely lady who organised breakfast. No major issues with noise apart from building work during the day. We were... More

Stayed for one night, Check-in took a while even at 1am. The room was very basic, bathroom had seen better days so didn't want to use the shower. Glad I had taken ear plugs as it was a little noisy from the air con and the airport. Breakfast was also very basic with fruit juice that wasn't good. If you... More

The bathroom looked terrible, the beds was ok, and the breakfast was minimum standard. The cost an location does make it an ok place to stay if you arrive late or leaving early from the airport. The reseption was not very friendly when we arrived.

So this is a hostel but I found it thru booking.com which usually searches hotels. It's like they can't decide which one they are...and truthfully, it's uncomfortably half-way between hostel and hotel. Nice enough; bunk beds, signs on the walls explaining all the eco-friendly designs (and yes, if you open both doors it SIGNIFICANTLY cools down the room, you just... More

We have stayed here after arriving on a late flight and did not regret it. If you are unlucky like us you may end up waiting for nearly an hour between the last day service bus (pr1 finishing at 22:50) and the first night service bus (n16 starting at 23:37) to take it for 3 stops or about 4-5 minutes...

Our flight was delayed arriving at barcelona and so we decided that rather than drive to our destination through the night we'd stay over somewhere and head off in the morning. This place fitted the bill, wasn't far from the airport and had a 6 bed room for us all. Check in was long and tedious, there were lots of... More
