Hostal Acapulco - I know you guys love this hotel but I cannot seem to commit to booking this until I've seen pictures.
I more of the type that says go with your gut feeling. I am a fan of Acapulco but if you are concerned because you cannot see any photos then I recommend to not book with them.
When looking for a place to stay, I look at price, location and friendless. Most of the reviews I read about Acapulco talked about the friendless of the hostel. That's why I book a room with them in February and was not disappointed. Perfect location, great price and friendly.
You should remember, when it comes to seeing photos of hostels, the quality of the photo is decided by who is behind the camera and their skill at taking photographs. The hostel I staying in Barcelona, this coming October does not have really good photos on their website. The website is basic looking and has one photo of each of the rooms. But I going with my gut feeling, because of the great reviews I read on another websites and booked a room with them.
When I get back from Spain and MadridMan is in Spain I will write a reviewed about the place in Barcelona.
