Exceptional 10.0
Stayed as a group, the room was small with 3 beds. However everything was clean and the service was excellent. Really pleased we found it.

Better than it looks
We loved the location here. Right in the middle of everything. This is an older building and you need to go up one floor for reception. We had a room with Patio and it was really just as you would expect for a 3 star place in an older part of town. All that said we would stay here again.

Overall nice place
I want to start off by saying this hotel is part of a larger building and the entrance is a little difficult to find from the street. Once we arrived we were greeted by a nice person at the front desk who showed us to our room (the entire place is very small). We were nervous at first that our room would be noisy but it ended up being very quiet. The room was great for the price and the cleaning lady did a wonderful job every day with cleaning our room. The only thing I wasn’t completely satisfied with was one of the front desk staff members, it might have been a language barrier but she was pretty rude every time we asked for help.

Great Location with an A+++ Front Desk Service.
Good Location. Breakfast is Ok, but Front Desk Service was an A+, all of them, the Men (don't remember his name), Paola, and Laura were very very helpfully. I had problems buying the train tickets to Madrid and Laura was SUPER nice looking for the best time-price and help me to bought it. Did the same with the tickets for Park Well, THANKS THANKS THANKS. You were awesome.

Hesitant but nicely surprised
Was a little hesitant to stay at a Hostel but was pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome we received upon check-in and the super friendly and helpful staff (available 24 hours/day). It's located in a great location in barcelona - walking distance to most things. Metro or MyTaxi for the rest. Our room had one queen bed and it's own private bathroom with a spacious shower (no Tub). It had a small desk for my computer and a balcony with a table and two chairs and a lounge chair with Umbrella for shading during the hot part of the day. The room sparkling clean and modern. The breakfast served in the room for 4 Euros was basic (Croissant, Toast, Coffee, Juice) but always prompt and tasty. And there are usually free fresh pastries in the lobby in the morning. They provide fresh towels and room cleaning daily. It's on the second floor and there is an elevator which we used only when we had heavy luggage. Wifi, heating, cooling, hot water - all worked perfectly.

Perfect place to stay
Great hotel (not a hostel as name would suggest), with own bathroom and balcony onto gran via. Perfect location for us. Great price.

A perfect spot to stay in Barcelona: central, affordable, an easy walk to the airport shuttle. Paola was so friendly and helpful!

Great location but some improvements needed
The hostal is in an excellent location, 15 mins walk from Las Ramblas and 2 mins walk from the airport bus drop off point. Beds are comfortable and all reception staff friendly. We bought our bus tour tickets at reception which was slightly cheaper. Some negatives; we'd booked a twin and were given a double - the beds were changed on the second night. The room smelled of stale smoke and just after we got there we had the door open while the receptionist checked for a twin and we were accused of smoking. We had a 1pm check out as a perk (confirmed on arrival) but the receptionist knocked at 11.40 to check why we were still there. She apologised but after a very late night we'd have preferred the sleep! These were fairly minor points and I'd still say stay there.
