“Very basic but not expensive”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

This is more of an upscale hostel than a hotel. Everything about it is very basic and functional. Small but clean and adequate bathroom with room. Convenient to the Metro. Not much in the immediate surrounding area. Sparce furnishings. Wifi only in the common area which is basically a modified parking lot. But this place is cheap and clean and secure so what more would you want for this price in Barcelona.

Simple, but clean and comfortable. Nice and helpful staff. There are two fridge for the guests (every stuff stayed untouched what we left there). There are Enough place in the room and in the bathroom too.
You can buy food next to the nearest corner. A good choice for your money.

Reviewed 29 July 2012

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights in July 2012. We were very happy with the location, not close in to the city center and major attractions but only a short metro trip away. It is located close to 2 metro stations. Park Guell is only a 10-15 min walk away and worth a look, it has spectacular views over the city. The room itself was large enough, but despite betting a double room it was just 2 single beds which we pushed together the first night. (When the room was made up the next morning it wasn't made with double sheets).

Our air con was very dodgy, when we first arrived it was not working and upon letting reception staff know the problem wasn't solved immediately. It was a pretty hot time of year too. In the middle of the first night it seemed to kick in and worked for the next 24 hours but then stopped again for the remainder of our stay. The staff weren't the happiest bunch of people but did answer questions that we had. There was a high level of general cleanliness, sufficient bathroom although I struggled to fit in the shower comfortably. There are good common areas with vending machines, a lot of fridge space too with a microwave if preparing small meals is your thing.

Have given it 4 out of 5 because of size, location and cleanliness-not for the dodgy air con!

Give it a go!
