“ok for 4 nights”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Hotel is situated right by the metro station. We have booked a room with the private bathroom. The room is very small and basic but had everything we would need - bed, air-conditioner, TV and WIFI in the room.
When we arrived we have found lots of hair everywhere in our room but after mentioning it to the receptionist he personally promised to clean our room tomorrow to make sure that the room is clean. And it was!
Towels have been changed every day. I found pillows very hard and uncomfortable but for the price we paid for it i shouldn't complain.

For some reason the staff of this hotel (two peruvian or ecuadorean guys) think you're staying there for free because their attitude makes you feel unwelcomed. I would definetly go some place else. The rooms are real small. To the point that is hard to fit in the shower. The location is good close to the L1 Metro station and the train station. There is an excellent japanese restaurant just across the street.

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights with my wife. Hotel rooms are pretty neat and clean. Rooms aren't that big have got private bathrooms. Bedsheets, blankets, pillows and towels were provided. Rooms were quipped with AC and a cupboard is available in the room. No food is provided. There is a PC available in the common area to access the internet. A guy is present at reception all the time but they don't speak English.
Hostel is well connected through metro. You can take the red line and goto metro station "Fabra i Puig". Hostel is just 50 metres away from the metro station.

Three minutes walk from Fabra y Puig metro. Download street map as locals do not seem to realise its whereabouts. No food available on premises. Supermarket within two minutes walk. Excellent location for exploring Barcelona. Cafes and bars close by. Check it out.
