This a relatively low-cost solution to accommodation in Barcelona.
The chief attraction is that the hosts - Amanda and Monica - are fluent English speakers, intelligent, humorous, responsible, warm and welcoming: the place feels safe and homely. We booked by phone, calling long distance from France. Everything turned out as promised. Payment is upfront. Credit/debit cards accepted. Good value for money.
The place is well lit and kept scrupulously clean from what I could see. The hostel has free WiFi on both floors: this is quite a plus as the luxury 5* hotel we stayed in nearby a week earlier did not have WiFi at all. The rooms are small - tricky when opening big suitcases - but that's OK for the fair rates they charge. Location is fine: walking distance from the fashionable downtown areas. Close to Sagrada Familia. There is a communal social room where you can make yourself a free Nescafé coffee and help yourself to an apple if you wish. Notice the wonderful bay windows overhanging the street: the chief attractive architectural feature of the place. Elevator/lift access to the floors. Secure rooms.
If possible I will stay here again when I return to Barcelona in the autumn.More
