If you want a modern hotel, air conditioning, a TV or a computerised card key, look away. This place is really not for you.

At 50 years of age, it feels a little like slumming ot a little, but that's because I'm 50 now, and have forgotten how often I used to stay in places like this, and did so very happily.

I have lived in Barcelona over 20 years ago, so although I don't go back often, it's always lovely to come back to such a special city. I brought my 18 year old son, who has been before, and we chose this place primarily due to location, literally 500 yards from Las Ramblas at the Columbus end, near the Port Vell marina.

It's in the Gothic Quarter, full of beautiful old buildings, near great cafes, patisseries and restaurants, at great prices because they are off the main street. It's also quiet, so you don't get the scooters balsting up and down all through the night.

It's a classic Spanish pension, with a desk that is manned 24 hours a day if you do want to go out well into the night. The room was clean, with a great shower in the en-suite bathroom.

You need to go to a farmacia to get your shower gel, there is not breakfast, but there are several great cafes for that. You get a small balcony, and you can open the doors and get fresh, warm Catalan ari, as it's always warm. So no air conditioning, but fresh air is much better anyway.

I loved this place. It's old fashioned, and I hope it stays that way, and all for €50 per night. The wifi works brilliantly as well.

We will be going back.

family visit in Barcelona destroyed! Our pram got missing at the hostel. The receptionist keeps sometimes people luggage and prams it the rooms are not ready after check in assuring it's safe. Well it is not as our pram got stolen! Are all our belongings safe too in the room. The matter is with the police as the hostel doesn't seem to be very helpful!

It's one of the cheap place you can stay in night. Who stay in reception can speak English and warm welcome. They keep quite and clean . But my wife told me that morning room girl not changed her bed cover but when we come back after our outing she keep clean all toilets and bath rooms. Some off the rooms have common toilets but luckily we got attached one, may be we get big room with 5 beds thts why. One think we feel uncomfortable that is hot. We went this summer they provide three fans but in night we feel so much hot . Maybe it's normal in this weather conditions but if you want nice sleep with without sweeting you have to visit in winter time.

First visit and stayed here for 4 nights. Very centrally located. 10 minutes walk to the Cathedral, beach. The Metro (L3) is few minutes walk. Plenty of restaurants and stores close by. For the price the hostel is a great deal. Staff is available 24 hrs and they are very friendly and helpful. Room is functional and clean with a wash basin and fan. Shared bathroom. not a big deal since there is bathroom for 2-3 rooms. Never once did I ran into another person.

I booked this hostel because it had a good price and was central.
Beds are very comfortable since I prefer sleeping in a good foam mattress. The whole place is very clean and there are plenty of bathrooms so all do they're shared ones feels that it is only for that room Very central three or four tube stations near by. First time I stayed in Barcelona and not in any my family houses. Realised how good this pension was after we moved to our next one and found out the it was one bathroom for eight or nine rooms. Silly me left my passport behind and realised next day at the airport. Rung them and new it was safe. Flown back with ID card and lucky brother was still in Barcelona and brought it back with him.
