“Very good location for little money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

We stayed for a week in the room with bunk beds. Very small room, with basic furniture and a little window facing the inner courtyard. The room and the bathroom were clean and towels were changed almost everyday. Wifi was free and worked with surprisingly good speed. The staff we encountered on check-in did not speak english but we understood eachother just fine. What is brilliant about this hostel is the excellent location, just a few steps away from Catalunya Square and Las Ramblas. So it was perfect for us traveling with a tight budget to stay in the heart of the city.

We had a room with 3 beds and it was very clean. The rooms are very suitable for travellers who don't seek any luxury. There was also a fridge and water heater in the room.

The staff was friendly but they didn't speak english very well. The main door of the hotel was weird and it was difficult to open it. We had to practice to unlock the door many times before we were quite sure that we could open it later :D

We got in and the person at the reception said there was a problem with our room. We ordered a 2 bed room with a bathroom but instead we got a queen sized bed with a bathroom. As much as it wasn't the best to sleep in the same bed, having your own private bathroom is very unusual for hostels at this price (about 25 euro/night). If we actually got the 2 beds, this would have been a 4 star review. Location wise, it is 5 minutes from the beginning of las ramblas and about 5 minutes from a major train station that takes you everywhere and especially easy to get to the airport. You can walk everywhere from this location. Problems were they turned the WiFi off at night and didn't usually turn it back on until around 10am, but there si a Starbucks down the street with free WiFi if necessary. And they did not provide soap or shampoo, but as a traveler I assume you have the right of mind to bring those with you. All in all, the service wasn't the best, but the quality, considering it was a hostel and cheap, was better than I expected.

Room Tip: Make sure you get the right room. Call in advanced to make sure it's still available.

The good thing about this place is price and location (that is amazing). Other than that place is dirty, smelly, the walls are moldy, in short everything is old and you just want to get out as soon as possible.
If you can afford even little more money try to avoid this place.

The owner said we had to wait until 5 to check in although it was clearly posted in the lobby that check in was after 2pm. They were extremly rude and didn't seem to care what we thought. the sheets were filthy as well as the rest of the room, everything was dusty. The bathroom was extremely dirty as well. The shower head was broken off of the wall so you had to hold it the whole time, which was difficult as I was shivering from the freezing cold water, and the drain did not work so I was standing in 4 inches of freezing cold water as well. Luckily there was a lot to do and see in Barcelona because we didn't want to be inside that filthy mess anymore that nessecary. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Ever.

First of all, I came from a longggggg train and was extremely tired looking for places to stay. Booked this online hours before my arrival and they wouldn't let me check in til 5 pm!!!!!!!! Shower was broken, no hot water at all, no free wifi, horrible service from the Chinese people. Bed felt like it was gonna break. Worst of all, guy gave me a receipt for my transaction which was 65€ and then he ended up charging my card 81€ but It only showed up in my account days later. Bathroom dirty full of hair from previous guest. Tooooo sketchy of a place and people who run it. I seriously hope no one ever goes there and they either run out of business or go to prison.

The studios is 5 minutes walking from placa catalunya and la rambla.it's not luxurious but clean and comfortable.In our room we had also a little kitchen.
I recommend it to those who want to stay in the city center without spend too much money.quiet and safe at night.it's pelayo n 5.
the maid came every day to change the towel but he used to give us only a large one and it's of poor quality.I recommend you to bring it from home if you're demanding.

highly raccomanded!!!!
