The location of the hostel is very convenient. Just right in front of the exit of Urquinaona station. You could walk to Pl. Catalunya to catch an airport express or to the Barcelona tourisme counter within 5 minutes.
Staff are very friendly and helpful. There are free coffee and biscuit provided at the cafeterior all the time.
However, the room was so dark. There was obviosly not enough lighting and they even used the light in shower room for room light. The shower room was see-through. Although there was a blind to conceal, it couldn't do any help with the light inside the shower turned on since everything could be seen anyway.
Although they changed towels and made up room everyday, the towels were rags with many holes and very thin.
There was a flat screen TV provided but I couldn't manage the Spanish appeared on the screen anytime I was trying to turn it on so I gave up watching. The room was very basic with no fridge also.
I requested a room with windows and was given a cornor room on the 1F. Since it was facing the main street and on the lower level it was noisy from people chatting from the pub and restaurants downstairs at night and in the morning.
It is a good hostel but the worst one we experienced in comparison although it was the most expensive one we paid for in Spain. This is Barcelona where accommodations are expensive so don't expect too much from the price you pay though.
