Location is very good, on the border of Barri Gothic, El Born, and Barcelonetta, so you have easy walking access to all those parts. Rooms are big considering Barcelona but closer to basic, with big private bathroom, A/C and TV (though we didn't use them). Our room had a balcony facing to Estacio de Franca and wide busy street.

This Hostel was very easy to find and walking from Passeig d. Gracia train station was really nice down lots of little lanes. The location is superb, only a 5 minute walk to Barceloneta metro station which is also next to Port Vell and close from there to Las Ramblas etc. As I mentioned earlier, there are lots of lovely...

I booked well in advance for 3 people, when I needed to change my booking to 2,but there was no twin room left, they still lowered the price for me. The desk staff were pleasant and very helpful even despite limited English (google translate helps!). I stayed 4 nights in a private room with a shared bathroom, but there's only... More

Definitely a great location, right in front of estacio' de fraca in La Ribera neighborhood is the place to be! I absolutely love it there because of the great food, bars, shops, and atmosphere. The rooms are small and the beds were also quite small which might be a problem for taller people. The spaces were clean and the people... More

Friendly, helpful staff. Well located very nearby station and in well walking distance from beach. Room is just average so don't expect too much. Good for backpackers. Availability of nearby eat out places and bike rental.

I stayed on a single room with private bathroom. The room was small but clean, as well as the bathroom, which were both cleaned everyday and towels changed. The owner Aida was very friendly and willing to help with anything needed. She made me feel very comfortable. It is conveniently located right across the street from the "Estacio França" train...

A nice room which was cleaned every day. Very friendly and helpfull staff. The location is close to the train and metro station 'barceloneta' and just a couple minutes from the ciudadela park. 5min to the beach 15min walk to La Rambla. Free wifi.

regardless of location and friendliness of the staff, i will never recommend this hostal to anyone. Room was not clean, cockraoch was running on the bed, windows to the back building (private, hence more expensive rooms...)

Stayed here on the first leg of our honeymoon. Gorgeous little place. Our balcony opened out onto a fantastic view of the city. A stone throw away from a beautiful park and the zoo and plenty of amazing cafes and restaurants. Will most definitely be staying here again.
