“Not an ideal choice, but ok for short stay”
Reviewed 11 April 2010

Barcelona has many hostels that are great. This one was just tolerable. The rooms weren't the cleanest. They do have lockers and computers though. Wouldn't suggest paying over 20 to stay there.

we stayed in one of their apartments, further down the street from the actual hostel. it was a GREAT apartment w/ tv, fan and a kitchen. good size bathroom aswell.
we also had a french balcony overlooking the street. the street was filled with really small supermarkets and turist-shops. the first day we arrived we saw a huge fight from our balcony and when we got home one night there were gangs hanging out.

i would highly recommend the hostel, but be careful in this neighborhood!

This hostel was in a great location just off Las Ramblas. The room was very basic but OK, with a large locker in the room that's essentially free (EUR 2 deposit). The showers were pretty crap, with the hot water quite intermittent, and which also has an auto stop mechanism that stops way too soon. The free internet is a great benefit, the included breakfast is basic but better than nothing. Would stay here again if only for the central location.

Stayed September 2009, travelled solo

I didnt book my stay i just went round barcelona and searched for the best hostal
as soon as i entered i was greeted by a realy friendly sweet woman and i immediately checked in
if you are snobby dont come here
but it was the best place i have ever stayed in and i have never felt more safe and met more friendly people
the beds are fine i really liked the breakfast and the showers were fine! the people who said all those horrible things obviously dont know what a hostal is!
how can you expect to have an imaculate shower if your sharing it with anothe 30 people
anyway im definatly going back ther !

  • Liked — the atmosphere and people
  • Disliked — mayb some of the people i had to share a room with but they were mainly nice and thats not he hostels fault
