Very basic but clean room in a good location. Was happy to find i had a sink and tiny shower in my room which i didn't expect. Staff are very helpful and beds are comfy. No fridge or microwave available but there is coffee and tea. Good value for Barcelona.

I loved the location! It's right next to a world-famous skateboarding spot and the graffiti there was super awesome. Walking distance to anything you could ever want.

I think we were overcharged for a double room which was a private booking by Ms Annelouise McGrory. Her room was not satisfactory, shower ridiculously small, No room service for the 5 day stay and extremely noisy. She paid £250 deposit for this room and a further $400 on arrival. a total of £650 + for 5 nights when we could have stayed in a 4 star Hotel for less. Devanah Thomas on behalf of Ms McGrory. She didn't book through Expedia but the HOSTEL was he same.
