The staff at the front desk was very nice, friendly, and helpful. It might have been nice if it could have been avoided that I was put with 5 men, as I was a young woman alone, it was a little awkward. Then again, I could have asked about this, but by the time I thought about it I had already settled into the room.

I liked the hostel because it was very good situated, close to important touristic sites. The hostel was clean, and beds allowed you a good night of sleep. However, in the 4th floor, where I stayed, the female toilettes sign is not very obvious, so I kept bumping on men taking a pee while I was taking a shower or changing clothes, which is not the best feeling ever. If they could let the guests know that toilets are separate for females and male, that would be cool.

Gostei da cordialidade de todos os recepcionistas, da localização muito perto da Las Ramblas e de certo modo da segurança dos armários para colocarmos nossa bagagem, porém todos os demais itens, principalmente dormitório e banheiro são muito ruins. No dormitório havíam pulgas e o chão esteve sujo todos os dias. No banheiro, não havia privacidade pois duas pessoas podiam usá-lo ao mesmo tempo.
