The location is great and the staff is very helpful and always at the reception. The shared bathrooms are cleaned multiple times during the day. The rooms are basic but if you are in Barcelona to see the city and just use the rooms to sleep in , they are more than okey!
Cleaning of the room could be a bit better. Would be nice to get the garbage bin emptied every day.
Host is very nice and helpful. Location is one of the best. Building and interior is older,but everything is clean as it should be. Dont be bothered by the look outside...like said it is worth reserving. They are quite awsome,i recommend it very much.
staff is great! very friendly. Honestly I would go back no doubt!!
Good location. Very pleasant staff. Room clean
Basic means a plain room, cheap bed, pillow and sheet, desk and lamp. Never been in a prison cell but just what I would imagine it to be like. Room very dark despite small window which looked into another bedroom. Very , very noisy with guests using communal toilet and shower, dragging cases up and down steep stone stairs and talking, rattling door keys into the early hours. Makes a British Travel Lodge look 5 star! Down a back street which felt unsafe at night (though it wasn’t). Sorry to say but not what I would consider value for money.
We stayed in a private double room for 6 days with a shared shower. The room had a fridge which allowed me to have store some food and save some costs. The owner of the hostel went above and beyond providing local recommendations of foods, drinks and how to make the most of our time in Barcelona. The terrace at the top is splendid and we were able to have a casual drink in the warm air of Barcelona. I would highly reccomend Central and Basic Solarium to anyone wanting to stay in the heart of Barcelona.
With a stay at Central & Basic Drassanes in Barcelona (Ciutat Vella), you'll be steps from La Rambla and 12 minutes by foot from Barcelona Cathedral. The front desk is staffed during limited hours.
