The hostel was quite disappointing... My partner and I went there during the day and it was a bit hard to find. It seemed a good area, right in the middle of the beautiful Gothic neighbourhood, but at night it got busy and extremely noisy. If you are a light sleeper, no ear plugs (they are provided) will do the... More

The staff (Jandro) was really helpfull and friendly. The people that were staying there were nice and respectful. But that is the only thing positive that I can say about mapamundo. The building was very old and falling apart. The area was very noisy (although ear plugs were provided) . My room was locked with a locker lock (and so,... More

We stayed at the hostel for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were comfortable, the location was excellent and the staff were very helpful. The kitchen was well equipped and we even had our own shelf in the fridge to store food (this came in handy after shopping at the nearby market). The only thing I would... More

Excellent location and nice rooms in Barcelona, close to the harbour, beach and La Rambla. There are only 4 rooms in the guesthouse, shared kitchen and living room. Owners are very helpful, thank you guys for the lovely stay! We would definitely recommend your guesthouse.

Great place to stay. Location: in the middle of the gotic part of the city. Charming, but a bit noicy at night in the weekend. But nothing that will keep you awake. And mapamundo offers free ear plugs. The apartment: shared kitchen and bath and wc. Its is an old apartment, but clean. The kitchen is fully equiped. Rooms are... More

We stayed at the MapaMundo for 5 nights. The hostel is located in the Gothic Quarter. Many good restaurants and bars can be found in short walking distance. The famous Ramblas are less than 5 minutes away and you can also reach the beach on foot in less than 20 minutes. After booking we received an email from the owner... More
