Rooms are ok. Bedsheets and pillows are disgusting so take out your sleeping bag and pull it over the bed.
The neighbourhood is well away from downtown Barcelona (30 min bike ride. 20 min train). Kindof a sketchy unsafe urban feel, where you don't want to find yourself lost by yourself or at nighttime at all. The taxi driver was even surprised when he heard the directions and warned us against getting mugged. The metro station is right across the street, however (nice plus).
The place inside looks much more like a US college dorm than a place to lodge. Complete with young students in pajamas everywhere, communal spaces with soda and snack machines, a room of computers with slow internet where only two of them actually work, a ping pong table and some couches. Breakfast is cereal, toast, and coffee.
I guess it's great if all of this is your cup of tea and you like meeting hungover college students from all around the world traveling on their parent's paychecks and complaining about not getting enough money for partying. It's also as dirty as.. well.. and average party dorm. Enough said.
