Most rooms are off reception which can be noisy so take you ear plugs
Very nice people. At perfect place. It was a little bit noisy, but for my visit it was exactly what I needed. Thank you.
- the location - the stuff was nice
Our room was basically just one room with three very old beds, the equipment was at least 20 years old or older. The room had one window that was facing a wall and the ventilation from a restaurant - so useless. We just needed to stay there for one night, but I can say that I will never go back. It's not worth the money a hostel would be a bigger standard.
Walking distance from Plaza espana.
It's veeeery cold in November.
it is close to the metro station.
it was very NOISY because of construction in this building - October 2014. My windows looked at the main entrance - i had to smell cigarettes all the evening and listen to stories that has been discussed there. Receptionist didn't speak English!if I didn't show him my booking in hard copy- he could not understand who i am and why i was there :) booking number was not enough. Number of toilets is enough but 1 shower is not enough. i stayed there only for a few hours- so i didn't feel any inconveniences. old refurbishment. No English channels.
rooms are small but very clean well located friendly staff stable wifi very cheap would stay here again!
a bit noisy
The positives--close to the Metro, good location n terms of restaurants and access to interesting parts of Barcelona, and someone is always on staff.
Full disclosure. I've never stayed in a hostel before. That being said, I wasn't impressed. The negatives--whenever someone enters the complex, the doorbell is wrung. Which means regardless of your room, you'll probably hear the doorbell throughout the night. Also, someone sits at the front desk 24/7, which may mean you'll hear the person's text tone every time they get a text.......... The bed was not very comfortable so for those with a bad back, be mindful. I can't recall at this point how much other accommodations go for, so hard to compare to others.
The hotel was clean and spacious enough. While there are no frills it provides the basics
Rooms are clean, small but comfortable, especially beds. Service was nice & good. Hostel is situated at the center of the city, near to the station Poble Sec. We have spent really nice time there :)
Not every room has a private bathroom, but I understand it's because of price.
Reception nice and professional. Room big enough and clean
There were scaffoldings outside my window and they start working early in the morning!!!
Nothing to like
Lack of comfort
Location, Clean rooms, and friendly helpfull staff
Thin walls, could hear all the noise from next rooms
Good staff, helpful & friendly
Very close to the metro station, nice area around the hotel. Kind staff.
I have chosen Hostal Elkano because it was presented to have spacious single rooms 18 m². When I arrived there I had a choice between two rooms: one of them had a strong cigarette smell, the other was very small, about 6-7 m², with a very small window. There was noise of music and people dancing on the ground floor until late night.
Friendly staff, easy to reach from main metro station
very small room, especially the shower room (could not bend over inside), fixed shower cable, making more uncomfortable the staff cannot speak English, therefore cannot help much.
Close to metro
Windov had to be closed in hot time,because there were small terase exactly behind it, somebody smoked there all time.
nice men staff clean room good location stable wifi
very bad woman staff, show annoying faces no cleaning service when we required
Dust was everywhere. I could not sleep all night, because of ringing bell. Bars on the window, poor view. Very small room without bathroom and toilet.
the friendly receptionist there was some soap in the room
the loud cleaning car passing by 3 o’clock right under my window some cleaning and one more bathroom would do good.
Cheap drinks from the vending machine; free luggage drop-off possible
Our room was extremely small, and the bathroom rather far away; poor English from the staff
Large and clean room with wi-fi and tv without any problems. Friendly staff, always ready to help You. Central location with all kind of facilities and 1' to Poble Sec metro station
Unconfortable bathroom with a too small bath
Fan in the room, good location.
Light switch in the room was hidden behind wardrobe. To turn the light on you need to pull wardrobe. When you pull wardrobe antenna gets off the TV.
Elkano is well located, near Parallel street. The staff was quite friendly and helpful.
It is not a hotel, but a sort of hostel. The window looked on to an inner smelly court and the beds were made of iron, the mattresses slipped and one can easily fall. The room is so small you can hardly move. It is not worth 50 euros per night.
