My boyfriend and I stayed here whilst we were passing through Barcelona. Pretty basic rooms but the staff were friendly and the location was awesome which was big plus. Would recommend, although slightly expensive for what it is.

Hostal Europa is only 3 minutes from the metro and right in the middle of everything. But the rooms are rather small, the beds are old and there was only one long pillow in our room. The staff was extremely friendly. Compared to other places I have stayed in Spain I thought it was a little expensive for what we... More

If your looking to get the most of the city while in Barcelona, this hostel is totally recommended. So close from two main metro stations and all the walk of Boquería is like feeling the heart of Barcelona. From the airport we just took a bus and got off at Plaza Espanya to get the metro and get off at... More

Just stayed here for 4 nights. Brilliantly located, just near Liceu tube station. Loads of narrow quaint old city streets nearby. Polite staff and good price. Free internet use. (Just beware of the pickpockets on La Rambla when you come home in the early hours. They approach men walking home alone to sell beer - girls approach you selling sex... More

We were attracted by the price for a good central location, in the heart and middle of Las Ramblas , near the Liceu metro and in walking distance to many sightseeing spots. Check in staff were friendly, free Wi-Fi and use of computers in this lobby area, also coffee / tea available if you wanted it. We had a room... More

Likes:  Great location just off Las Ramblas. Very clean rooms. Staff very knowledgeable and very helpful.  Common area where there is good wifi and computers. Dislike:  Could have created a more hostel common area for fellow travellers, it should be made more comfortable for travellers to meet and chat.

Great location just off La Rambla and very near to a metro station! Really friendly staff, spoke good English and were very helpful. The hostel is very clean and safe. Only downsides, wifi is not in rooms but you can sit downstairs and use it. Also, the air con wasn't working so we had to sleep with window open, and... More

The hostel is just a few steps away from La Boqueria market which one can buy fresh meals. Then, very close the Rambla Boulevard and Liceu Metro Station. Rooms are not so comfortable, for just to sleep there. Overall, value for money for tight budget travellers.

The hostel is just minutes away from La Boqueria market and the main shopping areas, so that was very excellent. We walked about 15 minutes from the last stop of the Aerobus service that we took from the airport, so we did not have to spend much on transport to get to our hostel at all. We had a 3... More
