We stayed here for 5 nights in Barcelona. When we arrived the air conditioning was broken - absolute hell! It was so hot in the room (we were in the only room no the ground floor) and opening the windows made no difference because the windows opened onto a conservatory owned by somebody else, not actually the outside air! Luckily it was fixed by the time we returned that night, but it did break a few more times during our stay but only for a few hours at a time. The receptionist was lovely and very helpful with all if our questions. The hostel is in an excellent location to Las Ramblas, couldn't be better! However, if you are thinking of visiting Barceloneta (beach and expensive nightclubs area) it is about a 30 minute walk from here. The walk means you see lots if Barcelona, but after a night out it means you will probably have to get a taxi home for abou 10-15 euros. The hostel was really really good for meeting other people, we were in a room of 8 and it was great. However, just one bathroom is inside each room and at times it was difficult to share it between 8, especially when there was 7 girls!
