They have bedbugs infection. We won't even know about it if not because I am allergic to the bites because typically the bug bites only show up after a few days after the actual bites. It's the worst nightmare. The only good thing is that the owner return my money when I complained about the bugs on the first night.... More

This place is by far the best place I have stayed to this date. Janto the manager and his 2IC Guille were very helpful in providing a rough guide of the city. The rooms were very clean and well lit. This place was recommended to me by a friend and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to... More

Could not fault one part of our stay at Mapamundo, it has gone down as one of our best ever holidays! Jandro's detailed instructions (including map and metro advice) were spot on and once we got to grips with the layout of the city we found the place in no time! It is in a great location and even arriving... More

Thought the guy who met us here was really friendly and helpful. Problems with the place were that the walls of our room were really dirty and the shower dirty too. Can tell it hadn't been properly cleaned for a while. I'm certainly not a clean freak, but I actually had a go at cleaning it myself with just a... More

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
MapaMundo is a different Guesthouse. Our concept is simple but hard to find in Barcelona. A large apartment with large rooms but few people. We privilege familiarity and a relaxed atmosphere. Therefore our guest are willing to stay for longer periods as well. MapaMundo is a cosy guesthouse with few private rooms located in the well-known and centric area of el Gotico in the centre of Barcelona. We are only at 4 minutes walking from the famous `Las Ramblas´ and within walking distance of some of the Barcelona's major attractions : Museo Picasso, Port and Beach, Pedredra, Plaza Catalunya etc Furthermore you will find a lot of great restaurants, nice pubs, small terraces and others which will make you appreciate the magic of Barcelona next to our guesthouse. MapaMundo has a simple goal: Be there for you offering quality lodging and help you to have good memories of your stay in our incredible city!!! ... more   less
