For 30 euro a night is not to bad with breakfast include next to the main street and next to the bars and prostitute everybody can get what they want ! Just a little bit noisy at night and the double bed for me what 2 single bed so if you move to much you get separate from your love one

This was a basic hotel. We were just fine with it. Considering only 3 minutes walk away from the Ramblas the centre of Barcelona we could not complain . The hotel was small but clean and a nice breakfast . The staff were really helpful they were there for you with information and to deal with any queries. For the price we paid I cannot complain. Recommend it to all those who will use this hotel just for sleep and out all day which we did.

Room Tip: Do not take the room next to the lift as it can get a bit noisy !!!

Firstly if you are not on a budget then this hotel is definitely not for you.

For me it was just a place to rest before exploring Barcelona.

This place is so cheap it is unbelievable, I didn't stay for breakfast so no idea what it was like, staff were pleasant and helpful and the rooms were clean and towels changed daily.

Because it is cheap you pay the price of being located in the heart of the "red light district", which didn't bother me but may bother some.

I was proposition numerous times on the way in and out of the hotel, it became a standing joke after a while with all the "girls" laughing.

The place is very central and is only a 4 minute walk from La Ramblas.

Ideal for backpackers and sightseeing, but not for people looking for a little more comfort.

I would definitely use it again.

Read previous poor reports but pleasantly surprised. Price was very reasonable for such a location - 5 mins from Las Ramblas, Theatre, Palau Guell! Within walking distance of water. Room basic but clean, beds comfortable, serviced daily (towels, shampoo and soap); air conditioned. Was aware of some street noise (especially Friday night) but did not hinder sleep after day of walking & sightseeing! Computers available in lobby (for a fee). Continental Breakfast also basic but fresh (5 Euros - 2013 rate - if not included with room rate) - toast, croissants, jam, marmalade, butter, juice, coffee and tea. All staff pleasant, courteous and VERY helpful. Highly recommend!

This hotel is the worst, most disgusting place i have ever stayed in!
We lasted one night, never again! Outside is full of prostitutes, the rooms are filthy, all plaster coming off the walls, wholes in the ceiling etc i did not feel safe staying here so i booked me and my other half into another hotel double the price but alot more secure! I felt like i was going to be robbed at best.
I would not let me worst enemy stay here.
