A hidden hotel, almost hard to find, but extremely well located a few steps away from a subway station that connects easily to anywhere in Barcelona. But as a consequence it is located on a busy street on the first (second for north americans) floor and as a consequence is quite noisy all night, forget sleeping with an open window, even when the air conditionning refuse to work and nobody at the reception can figure out how to make it work. A small common area is provided with some snacking options, but you have a choice of multiple delicious bakeries and cofee shops just outside, so why bother. The room (the exact same one as the picture) was clean, with a nice size bathroom, but not much space in the room itself. The bedding is extremely firm, and tranfer movement easily from one side of the bed to the other. Air conditionning, when working, is helpful to sleep during Barcelona nights. Be sure that you have the remote control when moving in. All that said the staff was always very helpful and we always managed to communicate in spite of their limited english, and my own limited spanish and absent catalan.

De todo un poco.
La habitacion muy comoda, justa y necesaria para cubrir tus necesidades. La recepcionista no es para nada cordial con los huespeds, se confunde porque tiene un descontrol en la recepción y acerca de los check in.. fatal! Para ser un hostal elevado de precio no tiene incluido el desayuno o alguna actividad, cosa que en otros hostales en europa te incluyen el desayuno buffet asi como tambien excursiones y/o actividades. La habitacion limpia, aire acondicionado esplendido, suficientes toallas, y centrico de plaza españa, pero sobre todo hay que mejorar en la recepcion, son lo primero con que se consiguen los clientes, son la cara del hostal y si dan malos tratos no ira mas nadie.
