No WiFi. Was dismayed to find out there was none available. The main reason I booked was for wifi. I felt cheated. Avoid this hostal, for the few extra euros you can do better and deserve better. The owners are only interested in money, guests come second. Very dissappointing.

Only stayed a night, so it served well as a comfortable bed for cheap. The proprietor is a little kooky, which was awkward, but at least we kept our exposure to a minimum. The free wifi was faster than the wifi we had gotten at a fancy hotel on the other side of town, so that's a plus. The shared bathroom was clean, though not in the best condition. Make no mistake: this is budget. Luckily, the location is excellent. We recommend checking out the Gothic quarter during the evening, which is just a few minutes' walk from the front door.

Enthusiastic owner very helpful. Poor representation of appartment on offer. It turned out to be a locked tired bedroom and bathroom inside his appartment. Awkward. Good central location on the 2 star range.

Fantastic location, the owner (Thomas) was really friendly and helpful-gave us a map when we first came and showed us wheer to go and how to get there! Rooms were fine-view from our room was fantastic and so central-in a perfect location! Bed was a bit lumpy, but that wasn't really a problem. Would really recommened it for all types of travellers!

We arrived late and the owner was waiting for us. Thomas was congenial and welcoming but he then told us that our room was in another building 1/2 a block away. He helped us with our luggage but once in the room we realized that this hostel was not for "older folks". The bed was low to the ground and hard. The pillows were even harder and flat. The noise from the street was deafening all night long. The bathroom was very small and the toilet was squeezed into a corner so small that it was hard to use.

The manager, Thomas Lorenzo, was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The position was excellent, being very close to the bus stop for the airport and other transport. It was a very short walk to the main street La Ramblas. Free wifi in the room was a bonus. Security was very good and I would definitely stay there again.

The location of the hostel was exellent! Very short ways to metro/bus/restaurant/shopping etc. Rooms were very clean and nice, every day fresh towels. The only negative point is the noise. It is located at a street with a lot of traffic, also at night. If this does not matter to you everything is fine. We enjoyed our stay!

Excellent place for an excellent place. Rooms are small, but cozy and comfortable. The place is located very close to a metro stop, and the top of Las Ramblas. Thomas is also an excellent host and very personable. Not related to the hostel, but be very cautious of your surroundings when in Barcelona. We were there for four days and ran into three different groups of pick-pocketers.

The room and double bed was very small for 2 people. The window looked out over the street and had a southerly aspect. The room was VERY hot in the afternoon with the sun (even on October) and noisy if the window was open. A ceiling fan was available to provide a little relief (it went flat out or off). The room was tidied daily a bit too rigorously as our paper work was put in piles, in draws etc so it was difficult to leave anything out. Very handy location.

Residence Australia was the best choice among all of my hotels during a trip on 9 different cities in Europe. The hotel has a great location, 1 quarter from Plaza Catalunya, one of Barcelona's main subway and tram station and at a walking distance from many of the city sights. The service is filled with simpaty, competence and kindness. The rooms are very spacious and clean. And all that for a very fair price. If there is a con in this hotel, it is the absence of courtines at the bathtube, so the bathroom floor will be wet after your shower, but that's pretty much it. The rooms are quiet and ideal for families and people who desire comfort.

This place is centrally located and run by very friendly people. It is small so noise from adjoining rooms is limited and shared baths are kept spotless. It is on a busy street so traffic noise is sometimes high, but the convenient location more than made up for that. The owner gave us great tips on sites to see and areas of the city to avoid. I highly recommend this hostel.

Nice place, but very noisy, can't receive any guest! No dobble glass windows! Be ready to use eardrops... Otherwise very well placed close to the Ramblas, big supermarket and all other shops.
