Cheap, clean, great location.....super boring and strict Aug 22, 2011
This hostel is owned by a really nice couple who provide a very safe and clean accommodation. It's nestled between the Barcelona's vibrant beaches and the very lively La Rambla street. Prices are relatively cheap for a European hot spot city.

However, these benefits come at a cost. First, there are more rules here than grandma's house. The walls are littered with signs and posters reminding patrons what they can't do and the penalties for such. Second, it's too clean. It sounds like an oxymoron, but it's true. After each guest takes a shower, the bathroom closes for 10 mins. so the staff can clean it. While cooking breakfast, the staff watches your every move to make sure you don't make a mess and clean up properly. Third, this hostel isn't social. It simply is the most boring hostel I've ever stayed at. No common room, no social events (tours, pub crawls) and a very stale atmosphere.

In the end, the hostel is good if you're a quiet traveler who prefers a clean and quiet place to sleep. If you're looking for a fun place to socialize, move on.
