Firstly I would like to say that i'm not some lunatic that expects perfection for little money . I have travelled extensively throughout the world with little to complain about anywhere . The problem I have here is in relation to the staff more so than the actual hostel itself . The rooms are small but clean . The room didn't have hot water for a few days and we had to ask for towels and toilet roll each time we required more which wasn't any big deal . The first real problem we encountered was when we required a second key . We were asked for 15 euro for the key and told we would have to give it back when we leave in a week . On leaving for our flight the guy behind the desk demanded the key back !! Basically turned into a big argument that resulted in me keeping the key and him being quite irate . The second problem was the same guy trying to screw us over for the taxi trip back to the airport . The staff member tells us that only special taxis go to the airport and he will have to book one for us otherwise we will not make our flight ! Any taxi in Barcelona will bring you to the airport this is common knowledge . He bangs our door down at 8 the next morning telling us to get up and have a shower that the taxi he has booked without our consent is outside . We think sure we'll just get it and if he trys to rip us off we just won't pay !! I asked before the taxi trip how much to be told 40 euro ( we paid 20 to get there on arrival ) ....... To be honest in hindsight i'm surprised these guys weren't robbing our rooms.. Pick any other cheap place but not this one ! absolute dump....
