“A PLACE WITH A HEART OF GOLD”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

A great place if one is looking for a bed for the night. I couldn't fault this place. I had a single room which was more than adequate for my needs, clean, wash had basin, wardrobe and balcony. Staff were amazing Nouvella especially, helped me out no end about how to get around. To be honest I was a bit apprehensive prior to going but once I got to albi nothing was a problem. Set in a very hip location not from las ramblas. Great bar across road, do not be put off by front door/entrance. Albi is luxury with staff that have a heart of gold. Good central location place for traveller of any age on a budget.

This is a simple hostel, basic beds and showers, but so nice. Everything was very clean and the staff was so friendly and helpful. The breakfast included was simple, but a really nice addition. We had a sink and mirror in our room (the three bed) which was helpful with getting ready.
Also, the location is perfect.
Would definitely recommend this hostel.

I usually pay strict attention to what I read on Trip Advisor, but I followed a hunch and decided to book anyway. The staff was excellent, giving me great advice on everything I asked. My room was smallish, but very clean. The shared bathroom had evidently been recently renovated and was very clean. All in all, I had a great stay in this great city!

I booked a Double Bed (Private Bathroom) and stayed for 5 nights. The position of this hostel is good. It' located in the Gothic quarter of the town and also close to the beach. However the room which they gave us had the window next to the WC and bathroom in common with the entiire floor, from where all sorts of sounds could be heard day and night, at any hour. I could not sleep for how loud people were. In addition to that the window we had faced a sort of small inner yard full of pigeon's faeces, and offcourse the window did not close properly, and I was constantly scared to have insectes entering from this dirty inner yard. The last note: the closet was broken.
