The room was small but tidy and clean. It would be nice to get some breakfast offered, at least some croissants besides coffee. This is specially important when traveling with kids

Perfect for couples ok with tighter quarters
We loved this hostel! The room we had was small, there was a queen bed, a sink and dresser/organizer in the bedroom area that you could unpack into and then a bathroom with a decent sized shower in a separate room. But it was cute, we had a small balcony with a table and two chairs with an outdoor lantern that was so romantic and the front desk was clean, friendly and SO helpful. Helped Ian organize tours, call taxis, they do a small continental breakfast until 11am and then have coffee tea and water available after that all day. We would definitely stay here again, we each had a checked bag and a carry on duffel and a small personal item and it was difficult to fit it all in the room but we stored the hard case suitcase on the balcony and once we unpacked on the organizer/dresser we didn’t have to open our suitcases again which was nice. Perfect for our 4 night stay in Barcelona. We were super close to a bunch of sites as well and the metro/bus station if we wanted to venture further out
