Great staff and the check-in was extremely easy. My only complaint was the uncomfortable beds which are important after a long day of exploring the beautiful city. 3.5/5 star rating.

Clean and nice but worst experience to find
Great place to stay. Easy to catch taxi to go anywhere. Only bad thing was to fimd a location. Super hard to find and the phone operater didn't explain enough and not so nice. Second time i called , nobody answered and we were completely exhausted. Three locals ( two actually live in the same building but different entrance with a same address, street number same, too but the different door) couldn't find....we were trying ro dimd 4minutes with my72 years old momand she couldn't walk anymore. Taxi driver couldn't find it either. After 40+ minutes, kind man stopped and helped me to find a door. Only feason he knew was because he has seen people goes in amd put of that small short door. When i stepped out on that evening, there were two more people wondering around to find the place. I went to ask them if they were looking for the place and they were also lost for a long time and they also told me that nobody pick up the phone calls to help. This place really needs to send some pictures od entrance and how to get in the building. Nobody would imagine that this place is half way under ground and the entrance is a super short door / gate. Ther is another door says 19 but that wooden door ia for residents. The actual hotel is half basement. Really needs a sign there.

Nice clean place
LAURENCE, au2 night trip
Good 6.0
It has amazing location yet it gets really loud sometimes beneath the hotel making it hard to sleep as there is a church nearby and much noise in the morning. Rooms are very small and the sheets weren't clean so they changed them for us. Overall cleaniness wasn't good yet if you want perfect location with a good price this is the place to go. Staff were extremely friendly too.

Exceptional 10.0
Great Value, Location and Accessible
The Hotel is located in an extremely advantageous position located just off Las Ramblas down a pretty side street. The hostel has individual private rooms for two or double beds and is everything you need for a nights atay. We stayed for one night and was clean, reasonably spacious, had our own sink m, balcony, wardrobe, hairdryer and towels to use. Would recommend highly if you’re looking for a cheap, convenient nights stay in the centre of Barcelona.
