I travelled with my sister and we spent 4 nights here. The Hostal is run by super friendly sisters and mum. It's VERY clean. Every day we were given clean towels, soaps and shampoo. Our bed was changed with fresh linen after the second night.

The Hostal was very close to the Ramblas but in a fairly quiet side street so noise at night was not a problem. The whole place was incredibly clean and the beds comfortable. The owners were friendly and helpful. The only downside was that there didn't seem to be hot water in our room but having said that it was such a small problem we didn't mention it to the owners.I would certainly stay there again.
