Nice and clean, great hostel
The rooms are very clean and comfortable, it is very close to Santa Maria del Mar and Born Market, the staff is very friendly, if you have a car the area is very hard to find parking and expensive, you can walk easily to many sights, good hostel highly recommended
Maria, ca2 night family trip
Good 6.0
I always pictured a hostel to be on the disgusting side, but this was good enough. The only thing that I’d recommend is getting new kitchen supplies because when you warm the water in the steamer it just comes out disgusting. It wouldn’t be bad to restore the place a bit. It’s haunted, too lol

Fine for a solo traveler
The room was comfortable but very small. As a solo traveler it was adequate but would have been problematic if there were 2 people.

Charming and economical but squeaky bed and room smells a little weird.

Simple, but comfy!
Great location, but was tricky to find. No lobby or signs, just a door which leads you to the pension on the fourt floor of a mixed use building. Very helpful staff, rooms very simple and dated, but clean and air-conditioned!

Cheap and Cheerful
It is a very basic place but everything was ok. Nice location and helpful staff.
John, gb1 night business trip
Poor 2.0
Any way I observed that the hotel was in good area
We arrived at the hotel but, the booking was canceled for one reason which they mentioned that the Creadit Card was not opened by the bank! while they could save our booking until we arrive than we pay the sum. It was respectless of the hotel manager. Any way I observed that the hotel was in good area while the moral of the business ZERO! The policy of manaing guest is Zero!
