Was nice close to the park guell. Facilities and security were very great but it could have been cleaner..

It's close to the metro and Park Güell which is nice but it seemed like most of the guests were a bit older. I think my friend and I were the youngest people there.

Very clean and the staff is nice! The location is in the quieter part of town, right next to Park Guell which is fantastic (it's free to get in before 8am!) but we had to take the metro to get anywhere else. The atmosphere is on the quieter side as well, kind of hard to meet people.

Great stay. Close to the metro station which you have to take to get to the city center, but also about 5 minutes from Parc Guell. Staff was great and and everyone was very friendly. I also loved the box beds instead of the squeaky bunks. I'd definitely stay here again since the price was perfect for what I got. Thanks guys!

시설은 아주 깨끗합니다. 락커도 커서 25인치캐리어넣고 안에 물건도 다 빼놓고 사용할 수 있었어요. 저는 방안에 욕실이랑 화장실 있어서 편하게 썼어요. 근처에 슈퍼마켓 여러개있고 과일가게도 있어서 매일 사먹었습니다. 그 골목 쭉 내려가면 현지인들 많이가는 음식점도 있으니 드셔보세요. 맛있습니다. 황금노선 지하철!이 근방이라 교통이용하기 정말 편했어요. 야간열차타고 왔고 떠날 때는 엘프랏 공항갔는데 둘다 환승없이 바로 갑니다. 까탈루냐 에스파냐광장 가우디성당 다 바로 갑니다. 저는 중간에 씨에스타때 쉬러 들어갔다가 나가고해서 하루에 교통티켓 4번은 썼습니다. 하루에 교통비 4유로 정도는 포함시켜서 숙박비 생각하시면 될듯합니다. 걸어다니시지 마세요. 멉니다.. 한번 걸어가보고 그냥 타고 다녔습니다. 저녁에 야경보고 늦게 들어간 적 많은데 위험한듯 하지만 다 주민들이 걸어다니는 거더군요. 개 산책이나 유모차 끈다던지.. 숙소 강추합니다.

It is near to park guell, in this case ithe location is excellent, but have to take the metro to go to la ramblas and other places. The box is so comfortable. But the design of restroom and shower cell needs improvement. Over all it worth a lot for the money and the experience was great!

good location and price, extremely helpful staffs. Some guests were really noisy. I know it's not the property's fault, but they did nothing. But overall it was a pleasant stay. I'd stay there again if they fix the problem.

I was really impressed with how comfortable I was here. I was really happy. I felt right at home. And the box space is a really neat idea. They´re very nice, very comfortable.
