This is a hostel. I have never lived in a hostel until this place. This is a clean place, modern furnishing, a small place too. I was on my own, so it is perfect. Everything works in this hostel. The breakfast is basic, but good. The reception is on the first floor, so you have to carry suit cases up....

The rooms were stylish and small, but very functional. The staff was accommodating. We have no complaints and would stay there again! (There are a lot of stairs.) The location was awesome... On Las Ramblas, next to a metro stop.

My staying in hostal (24-27 January 2013) was pretty good: the rooms has been renovated and are cleaned daily, staff was very friendly, breakfast was ok (especially for those who is on the diet) I think it is a good ratio price-quality.

Staying in La Rambla

Neighbourhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetising selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
