The only positive was the staff that was really friendly and always with a smile on their face.
The room was just awful, it reminded us of a prison cell (maybe the building was once a prison, I don't know..). It just had one small window located on the upper side of the wall and the bed was really awful as it made terrible noise every time I moved during the night.
Even though the location of the hostel is good, this particular building is situated in a very dangerous neighbourhood (in my oppionion), especially we were afraid to cross these streets in the night time (many strange people wandering around, on alcohol and drugs)..
I really didn't get the showers...I was not able to set the warm water so I had to shower in freezing water which was not comfortable for me..
The "buffet breakfast" choice was very poor also, I would suggest to add some fruits and vegetables also.
For my next stay in Barcelona I will definitely choose another type of accommodation.
