This place is more like a hotel than a hostel! The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and the room was immaculate. A cleaner would come in daily and replace towels and make the bed, something which we never expected but was lovely. We stayed in room 2 overlooking the street however they have excellent double glazing so noise was... More

If you go for sightseeing and do not care about room size and equipment inside, and do not want to spend to much you can pick this hostal. The location is just great. 5 minute walk to Plaça de Catalunya and La Rambla. There is a airport bus stop which can take you to the airport back and forth within... More

Small rooms but clean and good location. Helpful staff also. Good base to explore the city and good value too. Comfortable beds. Not luxury but good for hostel. Better than expected. Would visit again if on a budget.

My partner and I stayed here for a week in November 2013. We believed it to be a hotel at the time of booking, but it seems to be more akin to a hostel. Starting with the positives: the location is good, less than ten minutes walk from Placa de Catalunya/bus stop etc. Our room was a decent size and... More

The Hostel is very close to the city centre, just parallel to Paseo de Gracia and 10 mins walk to Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas. We arrived late at night and the receptionist was very friendly and helpful, no doubt, they helped us with anything we needed. The room was all we asked for, very clean and handy, the toilet... More

Although our room was small by Canadian standards it was very clean, comfortable beds, great toiletries and was the best location for our purposes - to sightsee while eating our way around Barcelona. Close to Placa de Catalunya where we arrived on the Aerobus from BCN, La Rambla's amazing Mercat de la Boqueria (fresh food market), the terrific shopping on... More

Quite some walking distance from Pl. Catalunya if u are taking the Aerobus as we did. But we found the place after crossing 2 traffic lights turn right and walk 1 block down. After that it was a breeze. Room did look smaller than imagined initially but it was manageable. Wifi was good and strong. Bathroom clean and newly renovated.... More

Great location and great price. Felt safe with staff there 24/7 and also many locked doors to get through (can be a little annoying!). Service from the staff was great and even the day we left the guy called a taxi for us and waited with us outside. Carried our bags etc. Room was even cleaned and fresh towels daily... More

The place is very difficult to identify from outside, but inside the house is really nice, the staff is very friendly. The location is great - very close to Paseig Gracia and Placa Catalunya and La Rambla, ideal for sightseeing. The price is decent for the location considering it was Barcelona at high season, so can't complain here. Wifi working... More

The hostel is ideally located to visit the best attraction on foot and also near the metro stop. Rooms are clean and spacious and quite modern, the staff is friendly and ready to give informations. I wouldn't call it a hostel but more like a hotel, the price is definetly value for money
