For an Aussie hostel this place wasn't half bad! I was just travelling interstate and found this perfect between a few mates and I. Easy going staff, generally nice feel. Elevator didn't work... But that's life? No real complaints.
Brillian hospitality. Anything we wanted was organised. Despite being a new hostel that don't offer a 24 hour reception, one of the staff agreed to meet us at reception to check out got our flight at 4am. Such a rad team!
I really felt like family. The staff are always helpful, the location is close to a few great (and cheap) bars and restaurants, and you can walk to city sites in less than 20 minutes. A very comfortable place to stay!
What ever you do DON'T eat at the restaurant inside, it was woeful. 45 minutes in between each dish brought to the table, and all the pizza toppings were incorrect. The staff at the front desk seemed to have woken, stared at themselves in the mirror and said "As little as possible." The upside is that you can leave and explore knowing you've a bed (despite being rock hard) to return too... Eh, fairly dismal hostel, really.
Very modern hostel, has a hotel feel. The room I stayed in (6 bed mixed) was very spacious, in fact HUGE and the bed was quite comfy! The bar downstairs has a pretty chilled vibe and the breakfast is VERY decent, if you want to fork out additional cash every morning. The kitchen has 4 stove tops however can be busy later in the evening. The only downside was that there were small flies hovering around constantly, especially if you had food... strange.
The breakfast was slightly lack luster, it would be nice to add a few more ingredients! The room was brilliant, the company seemed chilled and the location is PERFECT. Despite the riots and lack of transport (which is out of the hostels control) I fell in love with Athens very quickly!
The hotel has no signs on the outside that mention 'Alessandro', you must ring the buzzer to get in. Breakfast is €3, and laundry €8 for a wash and dry, you may find it hard to get change for the facilities, so bring €10 notes and use the change machine. Bed was comfy, room was huge and Internet is free if you use wi-fi. The shower facilities seemed decent despite the small flooding. The biggest upside is the location. You can walk most places!
Alright, let me begin by saying you're wasting time reading this, if you miss out on a reservation it's your loss. This place is the bee's knees. DANIELS LENTILS; best feed in town. Pay attention to the pub crawls - they're your new best friend. Brilliant shower, easy going staff, you get a feed each night (for around 2 Euro, depending on the night), there is a supermarket nearby, a metro station …And Daniel at reception. You need this atmosphere to really experience Barcelona. PARTY!

Curfew hurts, you cannot stay here if you intend to even vaguely permit some sort of party. You will regret your life if you want to discover the city as this place is miles from anything that is remotely distinctive or for lack of better description: alright. I felt like I was seeking asylum.
