The location is perfect, 2-min walk to Casa Mila with a metro station nearby. There is churro nearby as well which I highly recommended. I LOVE their breakfast buffet and it's totally worth it! Cheap price with high quality and great choice! However, the room is compact with small and very basic bunk bed. The room rate is high but it's Barcelona you know.

Eu adorei a propriedade, apesar de ficar mais na rua. A atenção dos funcionários foram espetaculares. Somente não gostei da parte da ducha. Muito pequena e para uma pessoa maior, seria mais complicado para tomar banho.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Rude staff, if you have any problem don't expect them to help you or be understanding, they charge you 5 euros for a towel. The room where I was staying smelled badly. The only good thing about this place is the location but there are better places around to stay much better than this so its not worth it.
