10/10 Exceptional

Eu adorei a propriedade, apesar de ficar mais na rua. A atenção dos funcionários foram espetaculares. Somente não gostei da parte da ducha. Muito pequena e para uma pessoa maior, seria mais complicado para tomar banho.

2/10 Poor

Rude staff, if you have any problem don't expect them to help you or be understanding, they charge you 5 euros for a towel. The room where I was staying smelled badly. The only good thing about this place is the location but there are better places around to stay much better than this so its not worth it.

Close to public transportation and lots of restaurants and bars. This hostel is a good place to meet people with a beautiful rooftop that overlooks all of Barcelona. You will love the rooftop and the bar downstairs
