Worst Hotel I've ever stayed in!!Posted Aug 20, 2015 on Hotels
I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. It was dirty, seemed like there was dry blood on the walls and super loud at night so sleep was difficult.

Perfect location. Poor rooms.Posted Aug 14, 2015
Pros: The gentleman with the black mustache who welcomes new arrivals midday. He was very friendly and helpful.
Cons: The room needs a new coat of paint, some cheap IKEA furnishing, and, more than anything, a staff that has even a passing interest in basic aesthetics.
Location: It is perfectly situated in the center of Gothic. You can't find a better location in Barcelona.
First, it should be noted that the staff member working reception midday is a lovely, friendly gentleman who offers a very warm welcome and is happy to help in any way he can. He is, rather unfortunately, replaced in the evenings by a cantankerous old Catalan who is actively rude and disagreeable. Perhaps one learns to love him over time. Like Archie Bunker or an oddly-shaped, prominently-placed skin mole. The room itself showed equal signs of wear and tear. With a load-bearing column running right through the center of it, the walls, floor, and furniture were covered in cracks, scratches, scuff marks, and general lack of care. It is clear that the room has been host to ten-too-many groups of drunken youths on holiday, and no effort has been made to address the damage. A fresh coat of paint on the walls and a 100 Euro trip to IKEA for new furnishings would, at the very least, bring the room up to youth hostel standards. That said, the room itself was fairly clean. As for additional accommodations, there is a non-functioning wifi signal, a window that looks across a meter long space at other windows, and a wall fan. A shame, really, as the place is situated directly in the center of Gothic. A wonderful location to travel to and from around Barcelona. With just a little care and a few days' profits from hosting 19 year old Germans, this place could easily be converted into an excellent hotel. But, for the moment, it's just a bed and a roof. Nothing more, nothing less.

The location is great, but the hostal is old, and no elevator. There was mold on the badroom door. I moved to another room. It was better, but the bathroom was very small. The towels were old and gray. :( The front desk staff in the morning was very nice, but the gentleman working in the evening was antisocial n lacking customer service. The breakfast was ok. Over all, you get for what you paid. :(

Basic But ConvenientPosted May 10, 2015 on Hotels
Convenient location but very basic. No extras at all. Breakfast very limited -- toast, coffee & orange juice. No ice. Desk hours limited. But would probably stay again for convenience of location.

Great value and location.Posted May 8, 2015
Was perfect for price and great location, day check in staff excellent but night was difficult to communicate with. Breakfast was simple but a cheap start to day. All round a recommended stay for a few nights :-)

Nice hostal close to Port VellPosted Apr 27, 2015
This hostal was not the best for the price but the location was perfect. 5 minutes of walking and youre at Port Vell and another 5 from the beach. Its located in an area where theres something always going on and easily accessible to the metro.
