the staff service is good
it's better to control the noise
Nice staff and comfortable bed. Good location
No baggage storage. Some staff cannot speak English. Tiny bathroom
Not a lot. I suppose when we finally got to sleep the bed was fairly comfortable.
If we hadn't arrived at 1:30am from the airport, we wouldn't have stayed here having seen the room, which was like a box. The staff were rude. It had nothing to do with language barrier, as I can speak Spanish. From the outside the hostel looked terrible, covered in scaffolding, we walked past it without even noticing it and had to be directed there by locals. This would have been OK if the inside had been nice, but it wasn't. Now I have stayed in accommodation ranging from the most basic of lodging all the way to 4 or 5 star hotels, all over the world, and this could possibly be one of the worst places I have stayed, if not the worst. The 'walls' weren't really walls. Some girls in the room next door were chatting and had the tv on until 3-4am. Now they weren't being particularly loud, if the walls had been normal walls (they were almost like cardboard partitions), but it was like they were in the room with us. There were human hairs (I hope) on the sheets from previous guests... I had to wear 2 pairs of earplugs to get to sleep... Other reviewers have said this hostel is good for the money. Rubbish. I come to BCN quite often and for the price we paid for this, in low and mid season, you can get a lovely place. The following night we paid 5 euros more and got a hotel with a private terrace and en suite bathroom, 10 minutes from the Sagrada Familia... BCN can be a bit hit and miss for accommodation, but if you do your research you can find something much better than this. My recommendation is, in BCN anything lower than a booking.com review score of 8.0, think twice about staying there
This hostel was more like a hotel it was brilliant I would recommend this place to every one and it's in a grate location !
I likes that the rooms were really nice and clean and this place was easy to find and it was very welcoming the bathroom was lush xx
Everything is OK.
great location, 3 minutes on the metro, 10 minutes to Plaça d'Espanya and the Font màgica Very clean and quite
lack of kitchen not the whole staff speaks English
Really cheap, clean room, not so far away from the Barcelona Sants metro station!
One thing only - corridor outside our window was under repair, so it stank of paint.
Location is the only element.
Staffs do not speak English at all. Room is very small, old and dirty. Facilities are very basic. We booked a double room with shared bath 5 months earlier, and had the Booking.com called them to re-confirm our reservation right before we headed to Spain. On the day we arrived this hotel, the non-English speaking staff used sign language indicating no double room with shared bath available, and gave us a double room with private bath. When checking out, we found they charged us the rate for double room with private bath, and also 50% over charged us the city tax.
near to metro, price
small room, small bathroom, no view from window
Clean, friendly, great location, good value, nice staff, daily bed making, 24 hour reception, good hot showers, TVs with USB power and free wifi and access to a laptop, comfy beds, towels provided
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
