“Room with window to elevator”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

Pluses:
central location
nice patio
ok services

Minuses:

we got room with window that was facing elevator and there was no natural light (room was very dark and gloomy)
in general due to being close to elevator it was quite loud all night
room was very basic

To sum up: I would expect for that price something better.

towel got stained, the room was very dark. but good location and service was ok. If you are only looking for something cheap and good location this hotel is alright.

It's a good location. Ten minutes walk from the main square. However, although we booked (and paid) for four nights we stayed just one. The room was claustrophobic and small and the double mattress had seen better days (probably about twenty years ago). The hostal is probably clean but everything is so old and battered that it doesn't give that impression. I wouldn't mind if it was cheap but, for what you get, it most certainly is not. I have stayed in a beautiful hostal in Madrid that was half the price and also very central and so 'hostal' does not mean 'let's just leave the place as it is and try and squeeze as much money from the tourist as possible without giving anything in return'. The Agua Alegre needs a complete overhaul. It's amazing what some sand paper and a fresh coat of paint can do. It reminds me of an old aunt who was once a beauty but has now given up on her appearance and is waiting for death!
Oh - and don't pay in advance!

Stayed here in September 2011 and again last weekend of May 2012. We will definitely be back! The location is perfect, only a short stroll to Las Ramblas and Placa de Catalunya. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the staff are more than helpful, from the moment we arrived they were courteous and polite and extremely helpful. They even arranged our transport back to the airport for our return trip home - we would have missed our flight without it! Overall, we were very happy with the hostal Agua Alegre and will definitely be back again in the future!

Great location -Placa Catalunya is 10 minutes and Sagrada Familia is 20 minute by foot.
Accommodation was average the beds are uncomfortable and old :((((
Basically you get what you paid for !
We stayed in this hostel for 5 nights in a private double room.
The staff is friendly and helpful .
Wifi works but at low speed.
There is a good backer very close to hostel.
