This is a perfectly located hostel. I was pleased with the room and facilities. And the street is not too busy for being near La Rambla.

Very dated. Very basic. No hot water in sink in the room. Good wi-fi but only at reception. Good loction if one wants to take hop on hop off tour -- stop 100 metres from hostal -- or walk La Rambla or tour the port. Staff not interested/warm.

Nobody can speak a word in English. They can't even understand basic and necessary things. It was really difficult to understand they speak only Spanish. The position is good. The hostel is also really cold and dirty. There was some hairs on my bad... I would say go somewhere else
