A nightmare! This has absolutely nothing to do with a hostal or a hotel. Those were the 2 most horrible nights of our life and I wouldn't recommend ANYBODY to go there, not even my worst enemy. The room isn't clean (see pictures), it smells like an open sewer and it feels unsafe. When you close the front door, it...

This is a very basic hostel, there are two shared bathrooms and a shared kitchen. The rooms are clean and have the essential. There was wifi in the common area which worked okay. For what you're paying its definitely worth the stay. The rooms are a bit noisy as the hostel is on the main road and the Windows are...

It is a flat used as a guesthouse/hostel. Shared bathrooms. Average beds. No isolation in windows so you can hear the noise and wind (seriously we felt as if the windows were open), and it gets cold if the weather is bad. Most lamps doesn't work, usually lamp-shades are used. On the other side, Location is very good. Bathrooms and...

We booked a triple room on the fourth floor with a private bathroom for three nights.It is located in the residential and quiet area of Eixample, approx 15 minutes walking distance from the Plaça de Catalunya and few minutes from the metro station Tetuan. It is a good solution if you want to avoid the noise and crowd of the...

We had a fine stay,but don't expect a hotel. It's more like a hostel and it feels like a student house. A cleaninglady comes everyday to clean the common area's but i still didn't had the feeling it was very clean. We paid 100 euro for 2 nights, which is a bit too much in my opinion, it's also not...

I really liked this hotel, I stayed in with two friends for five days, and we felt like home, and I liked it more than the other hotel we stayed in it in Barcelona. we had our own key for the entrance of the building. We had a shared kitchen, a private bathroom (because we booked it with the room)...

You dont ask much for a hostel, the mattress' were comfortable, the bathroom had been refurbished and it was very secure (you have 3 locked set of doors to get through) It is not signed at...

I didn't expect much, only paying 76 euro for 2 nights, but it had to be the worst/ grossest night at a "hotel/ hostel" that I have ever experienced. First, it wasn't even marked, there were no signs and it didn't even seem like a legit business. It smelled bad, it was filthy dirty and the bedding was nasty and...
