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

myself and my boyfriend stayed here Jan 31st for 3 nights. On arrival (which was late) we were greeted by the owner who was only too happy to give us as much detail about Barcelona as possible. He gave us great tips on sightseeing and a very useful map to keep free of charge. We also received 2 complimentary mini... More

This was a great hostel to stay at. Clean, good location, and friendly staff. The staff knew my name and were extremely helpful with any question I had about the city. The common area is very comfortable and tea, coffee, and milk was available for breakfast at no cost. It is just a couple streets away from the metro and... More

Very good place to stay for a week end in Barcelona. My room was very well organized with shelves and drawers to put my stuff. Bathrooms are also well organized and always very clean. Never happened to wait to use the shower or the toilet. Common areas very beautiful and comfortable, especially the terrace. Only down side of my stay... More

The Violeta Hostel is a great place to stay.  Here are three of the reasons I loved it. First, the staff is great.  The owners truly care about creating a good experience for their guests, and they make you feel welcome from the moment you walk in the front door.  Unlike so many places I've stayed, the staff is always...
