I booked this place because of all praises of the place. Somehow everything just went wrong for us. Hosts did not reply to my e-mails concerning our arrival time, there was nobody at B&B when we tried to check in at the time that I had informed then. When I called them, we were told to go to another address (the flat). We walked there 15 mins with all our luggage and then we were told that sorry, this is a wrong place, lets go back to where you were.
When we checked in, we were told which bathroom (there were supposed to be 4 bathrooms for 5 rooms) to use and that we were to share it with one other person. We thought that it was ok.
Our room (we chose the one with a window, even though it was rather small) was nicely decorated, but we felt a lack or privacy, because we could hear everything from the next door room & common room & we needed to walk through common room / breakfast room to get to the shower.
First night we were told that next morning we need to change room, we were misplaced for some reason (again). So we packed our luggage. For some reason this need to change room changed overnight and after all we were able to stay in our first room for the second night as well. So we unpacked our luggage.
First morning we find out that we need to queue to the bathroom, as all rooms seemed to be using the one and same bathroom.
On a good side I need to mention that B&B is well located, nicely decorated and wifi works. But for us all little details went / felt wrong, and we were happy to leave Barcelona after two nights.
