          Great location very close to the Ramblas. Nice staf, but very poor kitchen with no cutlery, only plastic dishes and only 2 microwaves, nothing to cook properly. No wi-fi in the rooms, only one electric plug in a room of 10 beds.

          that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
