Limited Service But Comfortable Stay
Self-service check-in hotel thus I had a bit of problem due to credit card not having pin. To have it solved, I had to wait for assistance to arrive which took abit of the time. However, the location was great, the room was clean and shared toilet is clean too! Would definitely consider this place if I return!

Great value for money
Location, Quiet, Convenient
The hostal is easy to access by metro and getting off at the Gracia station. Checking in is strict at 1pm since it is through a machine. Only surprise is that you have to pay additional taxes at the kiosk, which should've been disclosed at booking through Agoda. Room was quiet and fairly clean; the bathroom floor could've been cleaned a bit more thoroughly as there were stray hairs on the ground. The bathroom was larger than the room itself, which consisted of just a bed and a small safe.

robot hotel, step in only if u want to try
friendly cleaner
machine can only allowed to after 1pm, so dont think of early check in. machine also not smart enough bcos another 2 pairs of travellers do not have their record in the system, they need to call the person in charge to solve it, so if u do not have a roaming sim card, it ll cause u some problem. city tax pay by visa or master card required a pin no., but my visa do not have it, finally need to ask for other's help.i never see any people in reception, so if anything happen,god bless u. the lady who do housekeeping is very friendly and helpful. air-cond is centralized, shut down for 1-2 hours after it met 25℃(what the hotel man told me).

neat and quiet hotel.
high celling, clean room and rooms maked up daily.

Great stay in Baecelona!
Located in a great area, colse proximety to the centre, clean and light room.
We loved our stay at Hostal Express. The rooms were nice and clean, and the staff were helpful with booking a cab to the airport. The location was great as well, It felt like a calm oasis right next to the pulsating city centre. I've seen som complaints about noise from surrounding bars, but we did not notice anything like that. It's a supermarket just å few buildings down the street. Wouldn't hesitate to recomend this place if you are looking for a place to stay for a low cost!

Good stay but poor check in system.
clean, price, fast internet
First experienced self checked in by machine and no staffs around when we arrived. The system not user friendly. It requests credit card pin to make the payment of city tax which only cost few euros. However, Malaysia credit card doesn't have PIN. We couldn't get the room just because few euros even we already paid for the room. Hence, we need to call for the person in charged come from other place. There were almost 1 and half hour spent before we could rest in rooom.
