    broken AC, it was there but it wasn't cooling staff was there only at certain hours, so people who were coming after hours rang the doorbell and no one was there to open the door and check them in. No one was there to answer the phone at evenings, so it was ringing. All in all, a little bit too loud. breakfast very basic, Spanish style - bread, sweet pastries, some jam, nutella, cheese and ham. No vegetables :( very small shower cabin - not for tall or bigger people

    The room was very stuffy. The neighbourhood was quite noisy at night, opening the window meant lack of sleep. Staff should improve their English immediately. On the first day there was no breakfast! No information about it, no apologies, nothing. That's unacceptable.

    A very nice, clean room, looking exactly like in the pictures. A fridge and a kettle in the room were convenient. Really nice staff, breakfast modest but sufficient.

    Small clean room. Convinience location close to the Metro. Quiet location. We spent five days at Barcelona during the last week of March 2018. We spent majority of the time out we only came to the room to sleep so it work out perfect.

    The manager was extremely rude and wasn’t willing to work with us. Spoke in a violent and aggressive manner and threatened us also. I do not appreciate being treated that way after I chose to stay here when I could have stayed someplace with better customer service. The guy who was working called me disgusting because the room was a mess which he was over exaggerating. I do not recommend this for anyone!

    I have arrived too late (at around 20:15) so I had to check in the central office (You should write Carrer d'Aragó, 281, 08009 Barcelona, Spain in google maps to find it. It is in 100 meters away from Casa Batlló.) so I had to travel 3 km to get my keys and travel 3 km back with my keys and luggage. The Wi-fi was awful. (When it worked it was acceptable, but I do not know why did it stop working, or came back...)

    I have stayed -- from the many properties of Barcelona City North -- in Saragossa 95. The property was on a good pace. It is in a little, quiet street, but some hundreds meters away you can find busy roads, bus and metro stations. There was a little shop just in front of the hostel and a little pub as well.

    Breakfast was poor quality and boring after a couple of days. Wifi did not work in our room. TV did not work. Room not properly cleaned. If you check in after 6pm it is very difficult as you have to go to their other hotel in the centre of Barcelona to check in first.

    Don't do it... Stay somewhere else unless you want your room to flood.

    Even though this is a hostel, this offers the absolute bare minimum when it comes to a room. Wifi was spotty. Check in was challenging as they don't have staff on hand.Lucky for us, we arrived when one hotel staff member was clearing out rooms. In Spanish, we communicated about our reservation. She didn't know how to work the credit card machine and we handed over 7 credit cards which were all declined only to find out she was using the machine incorrectly. But that is all tolerable compared to what we experienced next...When eating breakfast the next morning, we were very concerned to learn from other guests that they found their rooms unlocked. Apparently the hotel staff had left rooms unlocked after she was done cleaning them out...leaving guest belongings open for theft. To make matters worse, in the middle of that night, the water pipe in the bathroom burst and flooded our room. The water damaged some of our belongings and we are still working with management to get an update on how they will handle the situation. No telephone in the room so of course we had to use international minutes to call the management company from the main hotel. Since they do not have staff on hand, we were moved to a new room after more than 30 minutes of water flowing everywhere. We had to shut off the pipes ourselves so that more items were not damaged. It was a mess! Imagine having all your suitcases, clothes, shoes, everything- soaking wet in the middle of the night when you have an early morning flight the next morning. This in addition to a number of bruises and injuries from slipping over the wet floor while moving our belongings and turning off the pipes. We were traveling with a child and thank goodness the child was unharmed in all of this. It was an unfortunate experience and hope that management takes a look at their facilities and this property with a closer eye to ensure something like this doesn't happen again.

    We didn't see that breakfast was included in the rate so thought that was a nice touch.

    Facilities are below average. It's basically as if you rented a room in an apartment. Breakfast not included in the price which was too much for such a room. I moved later on to Princess Hotel with nearly the same price but with much better facilities and service and the breakfast was included.

    The room was cozy and super clean. Good location, near the city center.

    The location is easy to find, though a little bit far from city centre. But you have several bus lines and of course the metro, so it's not that big a deal. The wifi exists, but maybe it was just with our room (nr1), but it always disconnected and then reconnected the whole week.

    The room was big for the two of us - we asked for twin beds and we got a single and a double bed, so had a lot of space which was great. The AC worked just fine and the people at the reception were kind and helpful. You have breakfast included in the price which is okay, but don't expect anything fancy - though the coffee was good. All the rooms have 2 doors - one regular one and one soundproofing one which is good - you can hear really little from the people arriving and leaving the hotel.
