I have found this University guest house by Google map, looking for cheap accommodation close to the Palau de Congressos de Catalunya. I have to admit that it was a nice surprise; my single room was really well equipped, considering the price of about 35 euros/night. Private bathroom, air conditioning system, private kitchenette, with fridge and microwave owen, and ethernet connection in the bedroom (which I really like, being usually faster than wifi connection - in any case available in common spaces). The TV model was quite "retro" (not critical for me, tough), however essential things such as warm shower, towels, shampoo/shower gel and daily cleaning routine were all present. Nice green and quiet area (University campus), close to metro/bus stations, Dragon Gate of Guell Pavillons and, especially, Avinguda Diagonal shopping centers (good for people loving shopping, like me ;-)
Breakfast was included; quite various: tea/coffee/milk, brioche, fruits, cereals, jam/butter, yogurt, salty food, bread. People at the reception were very kind and helpful (eg: for purchase of touristic bus tickets). Bedroom shutters had a strange design (working principles not really obvious), but in the end they worked fine ;-)
