Super sketchy building. Looks like a government building with offices and random hotel rooms. Not to mention the elevator is terrifying when you step in it feels like it’s going to break.

My flight was delayed by 5 hours and I got in at 4am. The lobby guy made me wait for 15 minutes as he finished up paperwork... :(

Good place for one night near Barcelona airport. Basic room, but clean

I liked because it was close to the airport but the property it could be clean up

To start, the hostel is in an (abandoned?) office complex. It's a little weird, but nothing too bad. The worst part is the rooms. First, our main door didn't even close all the way! You couldn't lock the room, which is a huge red flag for me. The rooms were not clean, at all. Our bathroom felt like a prison bathroom with stainless steel everything and moldy walls. The worst part were the boogers on the ceiling, we had plenty. And I am by no means a clean freak, I often stay at Motel 6 here in the US (one of the lowest budget hotels), but this hostel was on a different level.

It was reasonably priced for a big event, and not far from airport. However this is a hostel, so even if you book a single room, you'd get the overall hostel experience like bathrooms with automatically shutdown taps, no change of towels or sheets, etc. Buffet breakfast was average. There is no heating in the room, and the floor is tiled, so it is quite cold and noisy during winter months. No way to control AC either. Location-wise it is on the airport metro line, around 10 minute walk from the station, but otherwise in the middle of residential districts. No restaurants nearby, only one grocery store. If you're going to see the city center, it is 40m away by metro.
