The price of this hostel was very reasonable and made a weeks stay in barcelona for me and my boyfriend a much cheaper experience. The price reflects the location of the hostel away from the main areas of barcelona and takes approximately 15-20mins to reach the centre by metro (which is both close, cheap and easy to use) It is close to the beach and free internet is a bonus! We stayed in a private double ensuite room, which was basic but clean. An added bonus was a shared corridor between us and the next room which had a sink and fridge which made keeping snacks and drinks much easier (be warned when you take out the card which allows the power in the room to work it will stop the fridge working too!!!)
Having stayed in hostels across both Europe and further afield extensively I was let down by the breakfast (stale bread and cheap cereal) I was expecting a continental breakfast which most other hostels seem to offer. We also felt let down by the staff-whilst they were particularly friendly their knowledge and advise was not always correct! We asked them 3questions regarding touristy things and all 3 answers were wrong. Also all week I had a total of 1hot shower and was woken up most mornings by either barking dogs and screaming babies from the adjoining flat complex.
All in all-you get what you pay for! Barcelona is lovely just be prepared to travel each day in and out of the city from this hostel. I wouldnt return to the hostel but if its cheap you want then in return you get a clean room!
