We arrived earlier than expected and woke Maria up, she was so nice about it though. she took our bags and looked after them for us until check in on the afternoon.
When it was actually check in time she annotated a map for us with all the local places on it, where the old town ends, where all the useful metro stops are and which lines to get to where (Nou Camp, The beach, Park Guell) etc, it was so useful!
The room itself was beautiful, not plush or over furnished but full of character and spotlessly clean, as was the whole floor (its rooms are in the two apartments on the 2nd floor, which i like for the safety aspect e.g no stranger able to just walk in off the street and walk around the building because they'd first need to get through a door with a buzzer and intercom and then a locked door into the hostal and then into your room. There was also a huge bathroom and a lovely balcony.
The location was good, close to the main area but far enough out to have access to the lovely local spots as opposed to the tourist places. All the staff were lovely, A beautiful place with kind, generous people running it and excellent value. I have already recommended.
The only thing I would like to see is a hairdryer in the room, apart from that it was perfect.
