I spent 3 nights here at Hostal Barcelona and loved it! Pure bliss. For a hostal, it has hotel standards in terms of decor and cleanliness. Location wise - excellent - close to the Paral Lel metro, Montjuic and also the city centre. Plus the breakfast is amazing and there's a cool social lounge down below.

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

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
