The multilingual staff was very very friendly and supporting. I also liked the location a lot. The hostal is located next to a street (Carrer de blai) known for its Pincho (little spanish snack) bars and a metro station is close by. The harbor is within walking distance (20 min). The hotel offers luggage storage (lockers) for a little charge.
The room (single person) was clean but unfortunately there was a really bad moldy smell when the window was closed for a couple of minutes. The window was directed to the elevator shaft. The room is not very well soundproofed.
It was equipped with a portable fan instead of a ceiling fan.
