Booking was transferred to an apartment in Rambla de Catalunya.This was *great*,one block away from Casa Battlo,excellent surroundings and location.The place was very decent considering the price and included free internet, cooking facilities, free phone calls worldwide (!) and great hot water in the showers / air conditioning in the hall. The best thing is that 2 days after checking out I called the owner at 11.30pm after getting stranded at Sants and he put us up for the night at short notice.
It's a nice place to stay if you only want to have a place to stay. The appartment has two rooms, so you have to share the appartment, our room was nice and clean, but the services, the kitchen and the living room was nasty (i don't know if it was because of the other people, but at least the staff must clean everyday). The location is ok, the beach is near and the city is not too far if you catch bus or metro.
Hostel doesn't give us a bill. To the apartment we were going with a man who doesn't speak English, not at all. Our hostel lied to us, that we can park for free in front of apartment. We advise you to delete this illegal institution from your website.

Stayed here with my mum for 3 nights. Great hotel right near the beach, restaurants and a 25 min walk from the "boat bus" to Venice. Nice breakfast, very clean room and great bathroom. Staff were always available if you had any questions. Would definitely stay here again. The lido is lovely as well.

It was an absolute disgrace. This was the worst excuse of a hostel I have come across. Either there was no wifi or the owner would not give us it, there was no hot water and the room was absolutely boiling, there was a "fan" which did not work except for making a large noise. The place was filthy and the bed was so hard that my back felt more comfortable against the wall sleeping sideways on the bed than lying on my back on the bed. Let's just say there was a reason this was the cheapest hostel!
The staff was friendly, but they can't speak English, so we had some difficulties in understanding Spanish, even if we're Italians. The place was cosy, beds were confortable and kitchen was clean. However the staff didn't clean the place in time for our arrival, but when we arrived, the staff cleaned the place very accurately. The walls were a little bit dirty and there was only one bathroom, but the price was good and the place is quiet and near to the city centre.
Except for the guy waking us up in 2 am (which is really late if you almost haven´t slept due to an early morning flight) to inform us on the check-out place, the stay was good. In context of Barcelona which is generally expensive (in comparison with Madrid etc.) this place is good value for money. I really appreciated cleanliness (cleaning every day)!
