This is a great place to stay when in Barcelona. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. I Was traveling alone and felt very safe there. The bus stops right in front of the building and the metro is very close. It’s clean and nice and the beds are pretty comfortable. The food served at the bar is tasty. I would stay there again. They have bunk rooms and single bed rooms as well. The bathroom is nice and has a hair dryer. Keep in mind the rooms don’t have a TV but that never bothered me.

Liked: Property conditions & facilities
The bar area is beautiful and has reasonable prices. The common area is funky and unique. The Front desk staff were not very friendly and didn’t really seem to want to take the take to explain much of anything. The hallways upstairs smelt like a boys locker room. The rooms where pretty spacious and felt clean. The bunk was were comfortable and enough room. Toilet and shower area are separate from each other and both are entirely too small. Water pressure was good and water was hot but the sprayer was position in your face due to how small the shower area was. Didn’t feel connected with other guests and no activities were offered to help facilitate that.
