                  The room was very spacious, the location was a 15-20 minutes walk to Sagrada Familia. The location was also close to a metro station, however, it was not as close to the shopping areas as I would like it to be. (10-15 minutes walk)

                  Rooms could be cleaner!

                • Family with children
                  7.0

                  It is located central with some interesting places in the walking distance

                  It is too noisy, it does not have basics such as kettle, even towels you will have to ask, and you have shared bathrooms as well.

                • Family with children
                  5.8

                  Close to downtown, subway and beach.

                  The beds were noisy and not really comfortable.

                  4.2

                  The location was very good,close to metro and La Rambla street,alsoa lot of restaurant around,snack bars,etc. 24 hours reception,even if the night staff don't speek english at all.

                  Our double room was very dark,just interior window,what was not in the description of the room.i hate that kind of windows,so after my complainig,they change our room,but for charge, of course.the new room was with french big window with balcony,but on the very,very,very noisy street,so we didn't open it too much.the badrooms were two,one ok,but second not very clean and very dark also.reception was very poor,no info,no buletins,not very good english.they have any shareroom or living room,or kitchen or something like that over there.

                  Very good location you can easy get access to any part of the city, also close to the metro station. Fast wi-fi connection at room. Quiet at night.

                  The building and the room is a bit old and facilities are very basic. Not very clean but acceptable considered with the price.

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  Good location, helpful staff on reception.

                  It was basic - hard bed by our standards and shower was hand held rather than attached to wall.

                • Group of friends
                  7.8

                  Good location, only 10 min to the nearest metro station on foot. Cheap price and nice receptionist.

                  Except the toilet and bathroom is shared with others. Sometimes you need to wait. A little noisy because it's by located by the street.

                • Single
                  5.0

                  The staffs were quite nice and friendly.

                  Seriously, I don't quite like this hostel. The light in the room is poor and the roof is so high which gives me a feeling of pressure. The beds and wardrobe are pretty old and the floor is old too and kinda not that clean. I've been to several hotels and hostels in Barcelona, Madrid, Sevilla and Jerez. I don't find this one worth the money I spent.

                  It's in a great location, next to a bus stop which has several buses go to city center and beachside. And u can walk to those areas as well.

                  Close to center

                  A little noisy... but cannot really complain.

                  The girl in the reception she is very nice and friendly. The hostel is an old building but the location is good of course theres is many hostels around but for the prince that i paid for this one is fair enough.

                  I do not like the bedding. seemed that there was not been cleaned and found several hairs on top of the bed and under the blanket.In one day in the morning had no hot water to take a bath ..

                • Couple
                  4.6

                  - Staff shows up immediately when I was very tired and reached Hostal at 2 am in morning. - location is somewhat good, 5-10 minutes walk from hostal to Metro Passeig de Gracia. - the AC is working, dear lord!

                  - On Booked.net, it writes clearly that this hostal --- do ---- takes cards to shoot the bill. Butttttttt! It only takes cash!!!!!!!!! Are u kidding me?? Even I show the booking paper to staff of Hostal, they said they only take cash! I am pissed off!! It is totally ok to pay by cash, it is fine, but if one hotel is not willing to take cards, just say it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In advance. - third floor rest room, one floor above reception, the shower water is cold! nice! the water devours your feet when you wet your face.

                • Group of friends
                  7.4

                  As I read some of the reviews of previous guests I feared what I would find there, but it was quite ok. The room was tidy and fairly clean. It was an old building with old floors and walls, so it looks as it is not clean but the beds are clean and tolietes as well. I think it is a fair balance between price, comfort and position of the hotel (near P. da Gracia).

                  The location is great. There was everything needed in the room including a fridge!!!!.

                  The room looked really gloomy and too simple. A couple of simple pictures on the walls would do the room a lot of good
