Spent 2 nights in between cruises, booked for the proximity to the cruise port & "breakfast" included. Absolutely horrible! I had stayed last year in Barceloneta for 4 months and thought to stay alittle closer and save on the cleaning fees of an apartment. What a mistake! First night my husband and I were in a room with shared bath directly on Carrer Avinyo, a main thoroughfare. Finally got to sleep by 6am as close to the local bar and clubs which was extremely loud throughout the entire night, with every sound reverberating throughout the Carrer and coblestoned streets. The next morning, requested to move to a "quiet" room and were were informed we were lucky to be given a room with a private bath without extra charge. I figured out later, that it was a room suitable for one person, not two. We soon realized how small it was, enough for a double bed and table only. The room switch was actually far worse, because the one window faced onto the only entrance/internal stairwell and front access for the entire building...not only hostel, but the tenants in the residential building. We heard EVERYONE entering/exiting the building for 24 hours. Not just the party people outside but inside the building as well! Hardly slept the entire night. "Breakfast" consisted of processed cheese food (think Velvetta) and small packaged dry toast slices. Only fresh coffee was the only perk, served by a sullen selectively mute elder man. Overpriced, good location but be prepared for NO sleep, noise until 6am (then awoken by breakfast set-up at 8am) and horrible "breakfast'. No lifts, just stairs, FYI. Sorry, will try elsewhere next time and gladly pay extra $ for a good night's sleep!
