First of all I was really disappointed that Mary doesn't live in the house anymore which should be described in the add!
The room is described cosy yes but also needs to take a photo of it without filters as it looks bright in the photo but nothing like it in reality!you need to put lights on even in the morning as the window in it looks in the stairs !
In location wise it's a really good location to be honest and if you don't feel catastrophic in a room where there is no day light then you will enjoy your stay in there but I didn't like it much !!!!
Starsky welcomed me into his home and made me feel confortable during my 5-day stay in Barcelona. He was very helpful with all my questions and the condition of the room was very good.
En el piso de Starsky encontraras un lugar centrico en el que establecerte para podes disfrutar de la estupenda Barcelona! El ambiente de su piso es estupendo, tienes los servicios de la casa a tu disposicion y la comunicacion con Starsky es muy buena. Fue el piso ideal para mi estancia de varios dias.
This was a nice room in a great location! It was very easy to get around the city and there were lots of restaurants and things nearby. The room was small but comfortable and nice. Starsky was very friendly and helpful.
This was a great place to stay at while in Barcelona. I was accommodated coming in late Friday night with a nice walkthrough and had everything I needed for the weekend. Very friendly, would absolutely stay again if I come back to visit the city.
Starsky was a great host and had a friendly personality. He made sure I knew where everything was and his home was clean and comfortable.
I would recommend this place to anybody traveling to Barcelona.
Thank you Starsky!
Starsky was a very helpful host. For the price, the room was OK, although I would have appreciated an actual picture of the room I was in and not the living room, which is pictured. The neighborhood is nice: it's not too far from the center of town.
Over all, it's a good and inexpensive place to stay.
Just a hint to help you in the future. It is very important to read the full description and actually look at all the pictures. By your comments, it appears you only looked at the first picture. We have about 10-15 pictures posted and a picture of the room you rented is indeed included!

About the Host, Mary And Starsky
I'm from Portland ,Oregon, USA and I've been living in Barcelona since June 2011. I studied a master's degree in Translation Studies at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona) and am currently working as a freelance translator/english teacher.
My interests include, yoga, hiking, camping, cooking, soccer, dancing, el Camino de Santiago, running, foreign languages, and of course, world travel. I couldn't pick a favourite place in the world, there are too many wonderful things to see and experience; however, next on my destination list is the Annapurna Circuit Trek in Nepal.
My husband Starsky is from Colombia and works as an architect here in Barcelona. His passions include 3D printing, programming, robots, music, running, hiking and chatting with interesting people.
We're Looking forward to meeting more travellers from all over the world!
