    Property was close to Ramblas area, but the building is too old and while inside my room, there was this drains odor coming from the restroom, very disappointing.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Pros: Hotel is in the city center. 5 minute walking distance to a subway station. Supermarket, laundry and restaurants are nearby. Clean old room with large window. Shared bathrooms are clean and warm. Although my room has a private bathroom,but finally we like to use the shared bathrooms. Cons: Room is small for three people. Private shower space is squeezy. Bath fan was very weak. Front desk is just in front of our door.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    My first hostal in Europe

    Hostal had converters, hair dryers, and wine openers for people to borrow. Staff was polite and kept the place clean. They also gave me a cheaper price than what was listed on Hotel.com. Had 3 private bathrooms for everyone to share but one out of the 3 had black spots and idk if that is mold. Place is located near public transportation and the Gothic Quarter is around a 25 minute walk. Neighborhood is safe and friendly.
