Extraordinary friendly, knowledgeable and multi-lingual staff. Immaculately clean and comfortable with a fabulous patio to sit under the sun awnings and catch the breeze after a day of walking the city. Minutes walk from the Barri Gothic and Sagrada Familia. Just walk south down down Gironda and find the Plaza Sant Pedro and you'll probably never get so lost you... More

It is more like a hotel than hostel, therefore not as good as an atmosphere for socializing but perfect for when you're tired. Peacful, spacious place to stay. We got a free upgrade due to cancellation. Staff are always available and perfect for couples! Free mini breakfast too which is useful. No bar, though. Close to shops etc. Noisy if... More

I'd like to say a huge 'thank you' to the staff at Violeta Hostel (especially the lady on reception) for their tireless help when there was an error with my reservation this week. The error was my own, but the staff went above and beyond the call of duty to help us find a suitable alternative. I'll definitely be staying... More

Very nice couple running the place. Lovely courtyard. Everything was so clean, including the shared bathrooms which can be gross in hostels. Our room was rather noisy because it was next to the elevator shaft but the staff assured me they will soon be installing sound-proof windows which will help a lot. I loved the tranquil atmosphere. Nice location just... More

Lovely little hostels in great location. Spotlessly clean and comfortable with a lovely feel. Most of all were the perfect owners who were extremely helpful. On check in they took time to go through the city map, with city advice and best places to visit and eat at good prices. They definitely made our weekend in Barcelona very easy and... More

Violeta Hostel is a really great place to stay when in Barcelona. It's so central & pretty close to everything; the Ramblas, beach and the bus stop for the airport! The rooms are big and everything is very clean and the balcony is huge and a great place to relax or have a drink! I definitely would book this again... More
