We loved it at Milkshake! Me and my boyfriend went for five nights and it is perfect for a couple who do not mind sharing a bathroom and kitchen with one or two other couples. However, not once did we have to wait for the bathroom. Tony was amazing. He was helpful before we even got to Barcelona with maps... More

Just back after a weeks stay in the 'blue room'. Nice and clean, spacious and good a/c. Tony, the owner was very friendly, giving excellent advice about places to eat and directions etc. The location was excellent and was only a 20sec walk from lots of restaurants without being too close. If you're on a budget and don't mind sharing... More

Strayed here for 5 nights, met good fellow travelers, very good neighborhood, close to metro and University area and Casa Battlo. Toni (owner) gave great tips on tapas and restaurants. Its clean, airy, and I had a good view of the street. Only issue may be that its can be reached only after taking 70 steps (no lift). Will def.... More

If you are looking for a great location and somewhere to lay your head, this is it. You must be fit as it is about 5-6 flights of stairs up with no lift. The owner gave us really helpful information before we arrived on how to find it and was kind enough to give us the tour and some really... More

I found Milkshake after scouring through Trip Advisor and I'm so pleased I did! Located in the University area a few minutes away from Gaudi's famous Casa Batlló and the metro, you couldn't wish for a better location. It's up three flights of stairs but it's worth it, and let's face it, that's great exercise! The flats are all clean... More

If you want a central location right next to La Rambla, this is the place for you, if you don’t want anything fancy, and just a clean bed in a room, with shared bathroom facilities. I am a person that would never stay in a place with shared bathrooms, and I’m a person that usually stays in 3-4 star hotels,... More

This was my first visit to Barcelona and the Milkshake guest house was the ideal place to stay. When we arrived Tony the proprietor spent 30 minutes orienting us to the neighborhood, restaurants, and nearby bus/metro lines going to other parts of the city. We walked to La Rambla, La Boqueria, Casa Batllo, Casa Mila, and Sagrada Familia. Barcelona was... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and Tony was the best host we've ever had in all our Europe travels! We stayed in the blue room which was very spacious, simple, nicely decorated, and clean with a comfortable bed. The room is one of three in a flat, so we felt like we were staying in our own little home... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night and loved it. Location is super central -- perfect for when you only have 36 hours in the city and want to make the most of it -- with Casa Batllo a short walk away and easy access to the airport bus. Tony is friendly and easy-going and provided helpful city... More

Thank you Tony for the wonderful stay! You have made our stay very comfortable by providing suggestions for food and helping us with our many requests. We loved the spacious room, the well-equipped shared kitchen and breakfast with excellent home-made jam. The apartments was a 10-15 min stroll from the Passieg de Gracias train station (currently not linked to the... More
