The location and wifi were perfect.Also the receptionist woman was really nice,helpful and cheerful.We didn't like the hostel too much but because of the cheerful woman we didn't change the hostel :)
The rooms were very old and not exactly clean.
totally worth it!
Free wifi, location
No air con :( but airy rooms
Great and helpfull staff. Perfect location. Everywhere was close enough to go on foot. Room was very clean. Everyday we get celan towels.
clean, friendly, well located, reasonable.
second and third floor walk up may be an issue for some.
The staff were excellent and the location was perfect. I decide to stay a couple of days and owners ( two sister), were only happy to accommodate me with a single room.
If your stay on saturday. Be careful of the pickpockets outside the hostel. They are out in groups.
Staff very friendly and hotel is an excellent location
Bit noisy but need to expect that for the location.
Very good location. Good staff, kind and always ready to help. Clean sheets and towels everyday.
Room a little dark and not so cosy... Not so clean but acceptable.
The owner was lovely, the staff very friendly. The owner was lovely & helpful & even offered to lend me an umbrella when it rained. I felt very safe there which was good as I took my mum who is in her 60s. You had to knock on a door upstairs to get in & after night the downstairs door was locked so you had to ring a bell to be let in so no'one could just wander in off the street. There was little lounge as well with a table & microwave and lots of useful leaflets of places to visit. The hotel is a 1-2 min walk off La Rambla so nice & central, literally 2 min walk from the La Boqueria market packed with cheese, fresh fruit, olives, vegetables & many other things. A great place to get fruit & ice cold fruit juice for breakfast.
Location and comfort of the room. Staff is very kind, welcoming and helpful.
Extremely helpful and friendly staff, clean rooms and decent facilities.
Friendly, trustworthy staff of 2 sisters and their father (?) They made excellent restaurant recommendations with delicious food at a great value. Gave us a room with own bathroom. Held our luggage for us after we checked out. They cleaned our room and changed our towels every day. The location is perfect!
Walls are thin. We could hear a person coming in during the early morning hours.
Nice friendly reception. Purchase T10 metro ticket as perfect location to go everywhere, great savings.
no lifts so it's tough if you have big suitcase.
Good price Good location Friendly and helpful staff Clean and comfortable room
Bad shower experience Sometimes smelly toilet
One giant snake pillow for two people. Heavy bleach smell. Las ramblas just a minute walk but its over priced and the food is kinda bad, go elsewhere for better food.
Centrally located. Near all bars and shops. Close to all public transport. Helpful staff. Access to hotel at all hours.
Location - very close to Liceu metro station, about 3 min walk.
I asked staff about payment by card in euro, not roubles, but eventually she rapidly pushed some buttons and payment was in roubles... Hot water was a rare thing in our room 303, may be another rooms better, don't know. But having a shower was not a simple thing for us - 3 min only cold water, then 1 min normal water. That was awful. Towels were washed, but there were some mug spots on it, not good. Some rubbish at floor, single hair at toilet, bathroom, also in bed... I don't like that.
Fantastic location, very central , just off La Rambla. Lots of good places to eat including food market with endless delicious options. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very clean.
If you are a light sleeper there can sometimes be some noise, however this is traded off with good location.
Staff really was very friendly. Location is the best!
Noise from the street.
Staff was absolutely frienly and even loan us umbrellas because one day was rainy. Allways hot water in shower. Near to everything. Room was clean, towels were changed every day. Safe place, someone was 24h there and opened front door. It's not 5-star hotel, but in that price it is really nice!
The staff was really friendly
The fact that sometimes the hot water was not running
