We arrived around 19h00, No name on the porch door. We had to wait for some travelers to come in and open the door for us. We were requested to pay immediately in cash which I did and then were shown not a bedroom but a closet with no windows ! When I complained and refused the room we were... More

1) No fans in the room, got them replaced two times, still did not work. Had to run around each time, no staff available to do the work. Oh, I forgot, there is no customer service. 2) Looks very much like an illegal hostel. Name of hostel not mentioned anywhere on the property. Ample 24 is a property with no... More

I would never recommend this place to anyone. It felt like we were staying in a CRACK HOUSE! Worst place ever! My brother and I arrived around 1230am at the hostel. This hostel is on a sketchy street. People are standing outside and staring at you as walk down the street and as you wait outside the address of this... More

This hostel was wonderful! The accomodations were perfect and we were close to the majority of what we wanted to see. The nightlife in the gothic quarter is superb and the architecture is outstanding! Very close to the underground if you want to get somewhere farther! :)

We stayed here from the 17th-24th September. When we arrived we had a txt from Andres to let us know how to check in, it took a little while to figure out who was going to sort things out for us but in the end the girl in the Barcelona4Fun room just next door sorted us out. Very friendly, gave... More

My experience at Blue hostel was pleasant but not fantastic. The location was prefect, it was only a short walk to Las Rambles & there were plenty of great little restaurants along the street that were open late & the overall proximity to things in Barca was fantastic! There are a few downsides which I am not going to shy... More

Blue Hostel is a very well-run guest house in one of the best locations in Barcelona. Unlike a traditional hostel, it is truly a guesthouse with a shared kitchen and living area where you can congregate and meet other travelers in a more intimate setting. The entrance to the 150 year old structure is quite grand, if the flat does... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night with some friends. The hostel is in a great location- in the Gothic area and within walking distance to bars, shops, restaurants, the beach and the metro. The entrance to the hostel is amazing with a grand staircase. The rooms are simple and clean and there are two shared bathrooms (both very... More

Blue Hostel is very centrally located, about five min walk from Drassanes metro station at port end of Las Ramblas in the absolutely gorgeous Gothis part of Barce. While reception is not always manned, Andres kept in contact with us on his day off and met us at the required time to prov access, alloc room & local knowledge. We... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a brand new hostel with a different concept, small but with big and comfortable rooms. You will absolutely feel at home because it’s really quiet and silent.The building is a modernist palace situated in the centric “Gótico” district and the best thing of all, it’s only two blocks from the famous “Rambla”. Blue is in the very center of the 'Movida'...that is mean.. in the center of Nigthlife spot.Close to the hostal (5 minute-walk) you can find the best turistic attractions of town like the “Plaza Real”, Museums, the cathedral of Barcelona. The beach, “Arc Del Triumph' and the “Liceu” theatre you can find them within 15 minutes. As well as the Picasso museum, “Port Vell” and the Colon promenade. ... more   less
