      Mosquito Heaven

      Room was mosquito infected, we managed to kill around 20 during the night but it did not stop our children getting several nasty bites and we hardly slept because of it. The only point of coming to this place was to get some sleep between flights! Clearly there is a problem and wouldn't cost much to fix on a daily basis.

      Mixed stay, with many positives.

      Very disappointed swimming pool not in action. Advice from staff all good. Very handy for the airport. Check -in exceptionally slow. Breakfast excellent, including fresh tortilla, coffee disaster.

    • 8.0.Very good

      I rate it a 7 out of 10. Primarily because it is a hostel and a good one at it. We were two adults and two kids staying for a night close to the airport for an early departure. We had four very functional bunk beds which were decent to sleep in. The bathroom is basic but functional very hostel like. Thwy also pack you a breakfast picnic if required - we did not opt for it. The location of the hostel is close to airport about 15 minutes taxi ride in a quite neighbourhood. The only downside I felt is that the canteen for dinner was very basic especially for vegetarians. But that's also what you pay for so while a 7 out of 10 overall, value proposition is pretty good.

      It was convenient and modern. Restaurant food was excellent. Wish they’d had white as well as red wine. The bin in the bathroom hadn’t been emptied from the last guest. Reception were very helpful.

      Great overnight stop.

      We stayed only one night before taking an early flight from Barcelona. it was way past what we expected for a hostal,the room was small but more than big enough for one overnight stay, very clean and even supplied a hairdryer and toiletries. Yes, we would recommend it, and book to stay here again .

      Ideal location to rest a head after a later flight before heading to Barcelona city. Had a good shower & helpful breakfast staff. The place is noisy so had to wear ear plugs & we found there wasn’t enough power sockets in the room.

      When taking leave of Barcelona

      Great stay. Helpful staff. Civilised atmosphere. Near to airport. My only wish was that the local shops could have more choice of goods.
