Hi, First of all the area near the hotel is a little bit funky but i had no issues, also it is very good location, only a 10 minute walk down to the waterfront and the same to the ramblas. The hotel staff were always very helpful and spoke very good english, the room was also ok basic but you... More

The hotel was quite as described although room was a little small than expected. Window led to the internal shaft so anyone who talked could be heard. Nonetheless, the hostal in general and the room were very very clean which is a plus. The breakfast is quite normal with toast, yogurt, fruit and cereal but is enough to keep you... More

The title pretty much sums it up. The location could be somewhat better as it is a bit out of the way from the main attractions but it is still located within a neighbourhood where there is always something happening in the evening (not too far from some €5 Sangria!). The rooms were all clean, as were the bathrooms (thank... More

I am long overdue in writing this review, but here it is. Hostal Barcelona is basic in its amenities, but clean, centrally located (off the one of the main thorofares - Avenida Para-lel), with an efficient staff throughout. Stayed there with a group of friends in the summer of 2012 for a full week b/4 leaving on a cruise, and... More

this was my first time in a hostal and i was pleasantly surprised. i had a twin room for single use and the room was spotless, soap and towels were changed every day, and the continental breakfast was just that. i was worried about noise as i had read some reviews complaining, but apart from a couple of rowdy episodes...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this clean hostal. The staff were friendly and very helpful. It was close to transport links and within easy walking distance of La Rambla. The only thing that was a little annoying was the absence of a shelf in the shower for shampoo etc. I would recommend this hostal to friends.

I booked this hotel five months before we travelled, yet when we arrived they were still juggling rooms to get us in. I had requested a high floor non-smoking room so it was not a great start to get a room on floor 1 of 5, and when I opened the door I was hit with the stench of cigarettes... More

This is a cheap and basic hotel. The foyer is nice, and the receptionist was polite but she was much friendlier to guests who could speak Spanish than those who spoke to her in English! My room was tiny, the bed (which had a very old duvet cover) took up most of the room. It was also pretty dark as... More
