Brilliant. Angel, PJ & fellow staff make you feel at home in this Hostel. The home cooked dinners were delicious and were a good way to meet fellow travellers in the hostel. Good location, close to a number of small and inexpensive eateries including Tapas bars. La Rambla is approximately 15 minutes walking distance or even less on the subway.
Good location, friendly staff. The standout was definitely the amount of valuable information posted on the walls including transport information to each airport with estimated costs and times!
Nice hostel. Spacious private single room. Downside was having to carry my suitcase up a narrow spiral staircase to the 3rd floor. The support rails on the stairs aren't that stable, so have to be careful you don't land up like Ken from In Bruges . One of the toilets was the smallest I've ever used. Whilst sitting on the dunny, there would have been no more than 2cm between my knees and the door, was quite hilarious. There was a sign however to let people know in case they were claustrophobic.
Good breakfast. Decent lounge area with plenty of power points. Decent amount of (paid) lockers on the ground floor, but none in the room unfortunately. The shower in the 4-bed dorm was the smallest I've ever used, pretty much like what you would imagine would be on a plane. The non-smoking sign on the steps out the front was ignored, so the whole lobby area smelt like cigarettes.
Breakfast was nice. Beds aren't that comfortable and are fairly creaky. Lack of powerpoints in the room, particularly near the beds. Lockers in the room aren't that secure...
Piano, guitar, decent breakfast, clean rooms and Mark is a good bloke.
Only one of the staff could speak English well, she was also the most helpful. Kitchen was quite cramped. Very narrow stairway to the 3rd level. Water flow came to a standstill whilst having a shower on numerous occasions. The bathroom on the 3rd level was disgusting. We stayed there for 4 nights and a major leak from the basin was not fixed in this time. There were wet towels all over the floor. I would have thought calling out a plumber in Argentina wouldn't have cost that much for the Hostel.
Rooms are a bit cramped but nice hostel. Would recommend heading out on a ride with the Urban Bike SP crew. Good blokes.

Luiz is a top bloke. Excellent breakfast, close to the beach and buses to get you to the main attractions. Atmosphere is different to a hostel however, a lot more quiet...
Good choice of tours. Good breakfast. Close to Carl's Jr. Room doors need to be pulled hard to close and make a loud bang sound. Wifi Router broken on 4th floor. Room key needs to be re-activated at reception every 12-24 hours. Would have been good to know about this after walking up 4 flights of stairs and find your card doesn't work. Not the place to stay when there's riots/demonstrations/protests. Place gets locked down and makes it difficult to leave / re-enter the streets around the hostel.
If this place had an elevator, it could passed it off as a Hotel. Awesome views and ensuite in the twin private room. Hot showers with good water pressure.
David is a top bloke. Only criticism is the bathrooms need some hooks on the wall to hang towels etc and maybe a shelf to rest toiletries. Also, I cut my finger up a bit on the twin room door upstairs when opening it a few times as the lock was problematic. Might need to be looked into...
wifi signal didn't work in the dorm room, but otherwise a nice hostel with spacious dorm rooms

- air conditioner in room was ridiculous, woke up each time it turned on. It should stay on instead of turning on and off every few minutes - powerpoints not fully accessible for each person in dorm rooms - no wifi in rooms was a real inconvenience but otherwise a good hostel!
