            New good hotel with superb staffs”

            Nice location, staffs and clean lodge

            We were the pre-openning guests that we took a bus from Aix-en-Provence, FR to Barcelona so we arrived at late night approximately 11 pm. Firstly, we departed from Urgell station then we couldnt find the hotel, we walked along Gran via road to find but it is quite confused and no one know this hotel. Finally, we asked the opposite hotel of Soho hotel (yellow hotel) then we were very glad for his helpful and they told it was the opposite side. We started to find from an address and finally we found it. The staffs said they were going to find us becuase the hotel did not open yet and we are pre-openning staffs that the hotel is very clean, new, nice decoration and safe. The location is very closed to Urgell station only 2 mins and we can find restaurant nearby such as Thai, Italian and near withCatalunya square where is very easy to walk through. The staffs are stunning and help us as any conditions that we request. We love Hostal Live Barcelona and if we have a chance to visit there again then we will re-stay at this hotel.

            Nice, clean budget hotel with friendly staff”

            We chose this hotel (technically a hostel, but more like a budget hotel) because we were arriving after midnight and knew they had a 24 hour check-in desk. The lady at the desk who checked us in was very friendly and provided some good information about the area and must see sights in Barcelona. The room itself was very clean and modern, with a nice big comfortable bed, TV, safe, shower and good WiFi. We were able to store our luggage at the desk for the day after we checked out, which was very helpful. The location itself was just okay, about 10 mins walk from La Ramblas district, but we much preferred the Gracia neighbourhood we stayed in for the rest of our trip in Barcelona after checking out of this hotel, which had a much more authentic, local vibe.

Especially the location is just 15 min by walk to the center, Plaza Catalunya. And around this hostel, enric de granados is full of cool restaurants for tapas/and great menu. I highly recommend this place for anyone who comes to Barcelona as a traveler.

            I liked it; my wife didn't”

            The place was descent and good for the value of money. the room was quiet, and well isolated from the rest. the facility is a big apartment in a building. the building is not exclusive to the facility (hotel). however, the facility is good and we never felt anything from the neighbors. the room for me was descent and had a good and modern central AC (not that window decorative type). the bathroom was good and had a hair dryer. the supermarket in the same building is open 24/7 and had very reasonable prices. the neighborhood is full with cafes and cheaper supermarkets. the location is 5 minutes away from the university square; and like 12 minutes away from catalunya square. if the weather was not hot, i wouldn't complain. my wife didn't like the place. there was no fridge/mini-bar in the room. you have to carry a key for the building's entrance, memorize a pass-key for the facility's door, and use another key for your own room. they were generous and kind enough to keep our luggage in a safe place after we checked-out. the place offered free croissants in the morning!! i never encountered anything like that anywhere in all of Europe. the wifi was descent. the room and the bathroom were not spacious, but descent. it didn't feel too tight.

            About a 5 min walk to the town, the metro station is literally right outside the door, there is a 24 hour shop next door if you ever get peckish at night, the wifi service was excellent, our room was facing a park that closes at early evening so was always very quiet. We didn't have a safe in our room but it wasn't a problem as we put all of our valuables in my suitcase and padlocked it up, but if you would prefer a room with a lock then request it when you book. They have an iron for you to use, just ask at reception. They have body wash & shampoo dispenser in the shower so you don't have to bring any with you, they also provide new towels every day, you just need to make sure you put them on the floor in the bathroom once you are done with them. The sheets weren't changed during our stay but we were only there 3 nights so weren't a problem. The terrace was very spacious & the double beds are huge. Didn't speak much with the staff but when we did they were very helpful. 5 STAR!!!!!!

            Hostal can be hard to find without prominent signage. The lobby can be abit dark at night with a small lift to hostal level. Small room with little space to open luggage. Receptionist can be more helpful imo. Clean washroom and bed.

            Good spot to come home to after a day of working in BCN. Lovely small rooms with all the equipment you really need. Friendly and helpful staff with good English/francais/Catalan and Spanish to make it easier on the guest. The patio rooms look over a park; balconies view a bustling street scene but it's a quiet neighborhood. Plan to stay next time!

            Excellent accomodation for the budget traveller! Close to the action but far enough to avoid the noise. Our room was small but we spent most the time out exploring so it mattered very little. The staff are great and nothing was to hard especially the lovely and very helpful Raquel ! I wouldn't hesitate in coming back here again !

            Clean, not too far from the subway, nice staff

            There was a motor sound at night that gave me a hard time to get to sleep. In general this hotel was agreeable. I did not use the restaurant.
