Very small rooms, most of them with exterior bathroom. Not very clean. But it's on central location and cheap. For those who are interested in sightseeing and not being many hours in the room, it's very good value for money.

This hotel is very basic. We booked for 3 nights for our grown up family of 5. We had 3 rooms. Two overlooked the placa real and one over the Ramblas. Although it is very clean and the staff are very lovey and helpful it is very old fashioned. The bedding is like something from the 70's and the towels...

The rooms are small, beds are not comfortable, only the location was good... that's what you get for the price you pay, but next time would prefer to pay more for something little bit more comfortable..

Positives: The hostel is very well located just off the main street of Barcelona in the touristic area. The staff were helpful and friendly. Not so good: The shared bathroom often had a lot of water on the floor and only one roll of toilet paper. You need to look up in order to find the sign for the hostel,...

Ill-tempered receptionist, cigarette ashes in the shower cubicle, dusty furniture in bedroom, not enough toilet paper in shared toilet by night, zero soundproofing. Of all these, the receptionist was the worst factor. She has an attitude problem.

Terrible rooms. Smells of stale smoke. Owner wanted way too much personal information to register. So very disappointed. Avoid this place. There are much nicer places at similar rates nearby. Just wish they had rooms available because I would switch right now.
