We've stayed in various hostels before and I was really pleasantly suprised when we entered the hostel. The exterior gave no indication to the well thought out, funky interior. It was super clean and tidy. The hostel is on the second floor and takes up one floor of a large building. It's just of The Ramblas which made it great as a base. It offered everything to make our four day stay comfortable and enjoyable. Access to the internet, kitchen with all the cooking utensils, a common eating area, a common room with a plasma tv and access to a outside terrace area. The staff were great and we never needed to consult a tour book or tourist info centre. The hostel had a great atmosphere with both young and older travellers getting on very well. The only negative was the location of our bedroom right next to the kitchen. No sleeping late option there with the early risers cooking you awake.
