Buba House rocks!
Front desk guys were so nice, kind and friendly. Rooms were clean, quiet, and safe. Showers were clean. People were so respectful eachother, and friendly also. Location is right in the heart of Barcelona. I definitely would recommend who doesnt want to spend a fortune for accomodation during their trip. Ohhh, btw Buba house has free wifi service, and free breakfast until 11 am!

Very Good8.0
Location is great and the breakfast is good. The building is little bit old but comfortable. Note that Mobile World Congress held on the end of Feb, the price of accommodation is not reasonable in Barcelona.

The Buba House, Barcelona
Great location
The best part is the location.. the not so great part is the street noise and the necessary stair climbing with the bags. Very friendly helpful staff!

The Buba House, Barcelona
Convenient location
The room is clean and comfort. The reception is friendly. But there are only two bathrooms to share. One pipe is clogged.
