I travelled alone to Barcelona for the weekend as was meeting up with friends there but couldn't afford the swanky hotel they stayed in. I chose Triple2 as it was the cheapest room I could find on the Internet (40 euros the night including breakfast). The location was great as i took the Aerobus from the airport to Plaza Universitat (that cost 5.20 euros) and from the re, the B&B was a 5-10 minute walk. I wasn't really sure what to expect but when I got to Triple2 it's located on the first floor of an old building. Dario, the guy who greeted me, was lovely and made me feel at home showing me around. My heart sank when i saw my room - it resembled a prison cell, had no window, was right by the front door, just had a single bed and a table, no mirror and there wasn't room to swing a cat. Then i was shown the communal bathrooms which are both of a very good size with powerful showers, hairdryer and spotlessly clean. There's a bookcase with books you can take, a lounge/dining room with a TV and a terrace with table and chairs outside. Contrary to what I'd first thought, I had a really good night's sleep and the breakfast was all laid out as a help yourself buffet in the morning. I met one of the owners, sasha, who was really lovely and told me of the plans they have for building a jacuzzi on the terrace in the next few months. The location is great as it only takes about 15 minutes to walk into the centre of the city. Dario told me that the next time i go, ask for the room at the back which has its own bathroom or one of the double rooms at the front which has its own balcony. The experience turned out to be much better than I'd thought at the beginning and if you're travelling on a budget, want some place clean and friendly, this is definitely good value for money.
