We stayed here 6 nights with breakfast. It is a nice, friendly hostel with good location. Rooms are not very big, but they are clean and you get clear towels and clear room every day. Every room has air condition. Breakfast is included in: bread, croissants, cakes, butter, jam, yoghurt, salami, ham, cheese, coffee, tea and fruit juice. I think... More

We stayed in a double room at the Hostal last week with another couple. On checking in we realized that our room was much smaller than the one our friends had but we decided not to change and stay in it. Basic amenities and well located the Hostal is a 15 mins walk to Ramblas and Placa Catalunya and has... More

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.
