This place was weird. It´s supposed to be a proper hostel, but you can feel there are many dodgy things about it. First of all, they take as much money for a room in one of their two buildings, in La Rambla, as for a room in their main building. And the building in La Rambla is old, extremely noisy, not clean, very badly equipped, and I even saw a huge cocroach on the toilet cailing while I was taking a shower. Groze!
Their main building is a bit better, but still just about acceptable. Breakfast consist of little and very poor tasting toasts, coffee and "juice", and well... I don´t know exactly where and when, but in this hostel I´ve got BED BUGS´ bites. Enough said.
