Bad place. I'd only recomend it as a place to go when you pick up a chick from a honky tonk. It seemed I was the only one who wanted to sleep, and had to pay instead of being payed. The staff boy who welcomed me was very kind and thoughful, maybe because he knew I was going to spend a bad night.

The hostel was good, nevertheless, the twin beds were noisy and the shower needs another curtain. I recommend it for people who don't mind sharing everything and who don't have a light sleep. I loved that breakfast was included and the location is perfect if you arrive via El Prat aeroport.

£28 per night per single room in the heart of Barcelona might seem a bargain - and I suppose if you're a teenager it would be great. My room was smelly, there were greasy hand prints on the walls, it was agonisingly small. Worse still, there was no daylight in the 'window' as my 'room' backed onto a central super narrow courtyard that was used as a sluice. As a result the room was in perpetual malodorous darkness. The location is superb, but that's it. An extremely depressing place that made me feel dirty. Unless you're a kid on a budget that doesn't mind grime and living in conditions similar to Abu Graib, please avoid at all costs.

I stayed in a shared dorm for 8 days. Some people seemed to find it very difficult to go to bed quietly after a night out but apart from that I had a fabulous time. All the members of staff at Buba house were extremely friendly and helpful. It was great to have a kitchen area to cook my own dinner. Having breakfast thrown in was almost a real bonus. The hostel is well situated in the centre of town and very easy to find. i would definitely recommend Buba House.

I received a lovely welcome from the staff and nice room with funny new paint. The room is very simple but clean and comfortable. Not big spaces but good enough for me. Perfect location.
