Great Hostel and a great location, clean, very helpful staff and helped us out massively. I would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone who wanted to go to Barcelona. Staff were great, my friend was robbed and he required to go to the hospital, they were very accommodating when phoning the ambulance for him.
Substantial sized lockers to keep valuables, which may I add I think your valuables should always be kept.
Supermarkets and coffee shops are close by, they are required as breakfast is not included in the Hostel, cooking facilities and a fridge to keep things refrigerated. Vending machines and a coffee machine are also available.
Location is about a 2 min walk from the top of La Rambla and Playa de Catalunya Metro stop.
I would on the other hand warn them that it is extremely dangerous with regards to pickpockets and other dangers of getting beaten up. This is not the review to be discussing this though.
Thanks to all the staff for their help and cooperation throughout out stay in Barcelona, after we had checked out they allowed us to store our bags in the office until we came back to go to the airport.
