  • I was offered a room in an apartment close to the hostel. The apartment belongs to the hostel and all the people in there were guests. There were 4 rooms with 2 bathrooms for all the guests. There was just a problem with the hot water for a day or two and I had to take some cold showers. Anyway, It was brilliant, right on the Rambla but still very quiet. The room was on the 4th floor without a lift though. It did not matter to me, as I always enjoy burning calories wherever I can! ;-)

  • Pros: - VERY good location - Inexpensive price - Helpful staff Cons: - Internet & common lounge close from 2AM - 7AM - kind of annoying as I needed to communicate with some family/friends in the US. - Bathrooms were a little dirty towards the middle of the day. - Lockers are provided, though they are worn down and don't really lock.
