Reviewed 19 December 2011

I stayed here during the blazing hot summer months in 2011 whilst backpacking through Europe. Spain was a last minute decision, so the choices of hostels were limited. Be sure to enter in the address correctly - my iPhone reverted the address to an area about 15 minutes over - sucked at arriving at midnight. Regardless, the location is fairly decent for Barcelona. You`re out of the hustle and bustle, yet are within the best shopping and nightlife districts in less than a 20 minute walk. Barceloneta is an easy 15 minute walk, and Marina metro station is close by, The room I had lacked air conditioning and soap to wash the included dishware.. other than that it was fine for a single traveler. Breakfast was included with each day of my stay - the selection was ample. WiFi is only available downstairs in the lobby, however there is a computer for guest use. The staff speak moderate to well English, and are fairly helpful in regards to getting around and spending time in BCN. Thinking back, I`m not entirely sure of the price, but I am assuming around 30-40E a night. Which isn`t the best, but not terrible considering last minute reservations.

Room Tip: Lower floors are cooler, Keep your shutters closed during the day.

This is a great hostel, it is in a very good location close to arc de triomf metro and marina metro and other forms of transport supermarkets and restaurents and bars,
it is clean safe and secure.
it was great having ur own ensuite and mini kitchen the hostel has a 24 hour reception,
staff can speak english but not very friendly. i stayed aug 2009.
the only downside to this hostel was that it did not have airconditioning, and this was a big problem as room temperture was in the 30s.
I wouldnot stay here in the summer months, fans are provoided. Dublin guy 40+
