My husband and I stayed here in April for three nights and the experience was ok... The room is quite small and at first smelt a bit musty. We needed to have our sheets changed out since our skins itched a lot after the first night. Afterwards everything was ok. We saw one or two cockroaches there too so watch out! Also, they could use an elevator since the stairs are quite narrow and steep. They staff were helpful and it was steps away from Las Ramblas so no complaints there. There was no complimentary breakfast as advertised on the website, but there was a cheap little place "Tapas Gaudi" right around the corner. I guess you really pay for location.

My girlfriend and I, stayed here at the beggining of December 2013. We don't understand why most people here are moaning about, all the staff we communicated with were friendly and more than helpful. We spoke to the receptionist on the first night and he told us where the best places to go are, handing us a map and circling the attractions and gave us friendly directions to find them all. The rooms were clean Abathrooms kept clean and tidy. On one night, one of the receptionist gave us discount ticket for a club nearby plus there was 24hr service, and even when we strolled in at 4 in the morning they were still very charismatic.
At the end of the day there are people here that want it cheap but expect the Hilton. So you decide but we strongly reccomend it if you fancy a romantic or touristic weekend in BCN

Room had no external window, just a window into an interior light well overlooking the reception area so the noise of guests arriving all night echos up to the rooms. Lack of external window meant no fresh air. No security;non-functional safe in room. Suitcase with passport and laptop locked inside stolen by someone with a key to the room (no damage to the room lock). Extremely unhelpful, unprofessional management did nothing. Avoid this "hostal" at all costs.

Room Tip: Stay in a different place.

We ( four chaps ) stayed here for the Barcelona GP and I was a bit worried as it was very cheap for somewhere right on Las Ramblas. It was cheap but it was also very clean and secure. If you are looking for somewhere with no frills in the middle of everything then this is a great place. I've scored it a four based on cost and value for money. Great bar underneath as well. Depending on which floor you are on though, take ear plugs

Booked this "hotel" as came within budget for last weekends trip to Barcelona for the F1.Great location,right in the town.Fairly basic & very noisy & we had an inside room..
WARNING!!!Security was very dubious to say the least...No safe in the room & within hours all cash & electricals(cameras,kindals,all chargers,)removed from a locked suitcase with no forced entry to the room!Room was on the forth floor with an internal balcony door(no balcony,overlooking reception)Hotel was very unhelpful,kept saying police we're coming,then could'nt contact police!Draw you're own conclusions but take you're valuables with you!!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

Spent four nights post cruise traveling as a single with couple of married friends. Location cannot be beat. My room #103, had shower and sink but had to use shared bath across the hall which was spotless. Friends room #209 was perfect with bathroom in the room. Both rooms face front of hotel but pretty quiet due to the fact they face La Rambla. Metro stop (Liceu) across the street and an amazing restaurant around corner (Choquito). If you are looking for decent fair priced hotel in the center of this amazing city, this is the place.

We booked quite last minute and when we saw the price and location we weren't really expecting much, especially from a hostel. But I was very pleasantly surprised, we got there and the staff were friendly and helpful! The hostel was easy to find and the location completely central. The room was clean and had all we needed. They even changed our towels everyday which is way more than I expected! I loved it and would recommend it or go back any day!

Just one thing we were on the fourth floor and there was no lift so it may be difficult for some people, but it was no problem at all for us. It was also rather noisy but that is no fault to the hostel at all, I can't imagine there are many places actually on the Ramblas as this hostel is and is quiet. So all together I really loved the place!

Room Tip: If you find it difficult to go up many flights of stairs ask for a room on the first floor
