stayed here for 2 nights in october in a private 3 bedroom.

great little place situated 5 min walk from la rambla. lots of restaurants,shops and bars in local vicinity. theres a convenience store just opposite the road and a pharmacy next to that. the metro station is around 10-15 min walk to catalunya.

downstairs is a restaurant. buzz the reception bell and go to the first floor and ring the bell. the old lady was friendly and very nice. she showed us our room and facilities around. rooms are locked with a padlock. there are 2 small showers in the common room where you can also pay 1 euro to use the internet.

everything was very clean, we had a fan which broke within 5 mins of switching on - my only complaint! they have cleaners too which have access to your room.

taxi ride to and from this hostel is 30 euro and takes about 20-25 mins. the metro is only 3.60 euro for single from aeroport to caralunya ( 1 change at barcelona sants).

overall a great stay and particularly liked the old fashioned lift you can take! would stay again if in barcelona on a budget.

well..hard to say.
Location wise: super close to Las Ramblas and Placa Catalunya.
No breakfast included. Only one computer for which u have to pay (it had a virus when we where there).
Has a pretty big shared terrace.
There is an old lady in charge..but she didn't interfere..so no problems whit that.
Has no card-payment possibility.
Clean overall.
We were always super tired so I can;t say anything about the sleeping quality, I suppose it was good :)
