“Great base for Barcalona!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Lovely little pension- excellent location, both quiet and very central. We stayed as a young couple (September 2013) and had a great time. Very friendly and helpful staff (recommended good restaurants), all of whom spoke good English. The room was very clean on arrival, and was cleaned each day- as were the shared bathrooms. This really is a great place to be in Barcelona.

Room Tip: Having a little balcony looking into the courtyard is lovely.

excellent location, 5 min walk from La Rambla. Lots of bars and restaurants around the hostel. the staff were very helpful. the hostel is very clean and quiet with internet in rooms. the washrooms were shared but never crowded and always clean. loved this place. the only drawback was that its on the fourth floor with no elevator so you need to climb quite a few stairs which are very steep. not something you want to do after a day long wandering in barcelona. the rooms are a little cramped but then its a hostel, not a hotel so no real worries Apart from that its perfect!

this was my first hostel at barcelona. the location was great, right in the middle of many plazas but a bit far from metro station. the room was cleaned, there is a sink in the room although unfortunately at our first night the aircon didn't work and it was really hot at the time but the staff is very helpful and friendly, she tried her best to fix it as best as she can. she also pin point some of the great place to hang out or to eat. but the bathroom and the toilet is a bit narrow, only have 1 pretty big bathroom that has a toilet. but pretty much i enjoy staying here, it's an all new experience. some notes though, don't bring heavy luggage as you will work your way up to the 4th floor using narrow stairs.

Great hostel in a perfect location to explore Barcelona! The staff are extremely helpful, even helping us translate between ourselves and a bus company to help us locate our lost luggage!! Bathrooms and showers and cleaned daily and are always spotless. Not to mention that the building the hostel is in is amazing! 10/10 would stay again! Beware that there are some serious stairs to get up to the hostel itself.

I travelled with friends in October and we stayed here for 4 days (Thursday to Sunday). The staff was friendly, helpful. The room we stayed in had 2 bunk beds, 1 washroom and 4 separate lockers with keys. It was a decent sized room for 4 people who planned to spend more time sight seeing than sleeping.

Pros
- good sized room
- good ventilation
- basic bathroom (bring your own towel/toilettries)
- free wifi
- not noisy; excessive noise is well managed by staff

Cons
- a few flights of stairs with no elevators; a challenge only if you've got heavy luggage

We stayed here for 3 nights. The location is great - in the Gothic area. We shared a bathroom and toilet which was fine - they were very clean and we never had to wait to use them. The room was small but that was no problem. The staff were friendly and helpful and recommended some places to eat.

Very good place to stay at for a one week trip with friends! It's really in the heart of the city, the hosting is very nice, and it met all our needs! The little kitchen is really convenient, and it's a good way to meet people and have a good atmosphere at the pension.

Room Tip: It's very nice having a small balcony
