I've stayed 3 nights in La Isla and had a great time. Perfect location, just 10-15 minutes from the Centre and 2 min to the nearest metro station. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful, gave me all the directions and tips I needed. Free Wi-Fi. Also great value for money. I will definitely... More

My wife and I backpacked around Europe this past summer, and this hostel sticks out in my mind as being a cut above the rest. It was everything we asked for - clean, spacious, new, cheap..... don't stay anywhere else in Barcelona! It is walking distance from Las Ramblas and right next to the Arc de Triomph Metro stop.

This is a relatively new hotel (at least I think it is) located fairly close to the Arc de Triomf and about a 15 – 20 minute walk to Catalunya. The hostal is located on the first floor of an old building and only has a few rooms. The rooms also tend to be small and only 2 of them... More

Dear, Thanks for your comment. Reception doesn't opens sporadically; it opens everyday, as there are several tasks to be done, such as daily cleaning, public attendance, etc. We previously arrange with our guests their arrival time. Single rooms have fan, which is already advised on all our adversited websites. Barcelona is a lovely city, but it might get very hot... More

My expectations were met by this hostal. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are very basic and there is no air conditioning but if you're only looking for an inexpensive place to rest your head at night, this place would do. Only concern I had was with the flimsy door locks for security... More

I understand that Barcelona is very famous city, so the price of everything is higher. But this place can not be called hostel. I assume there are some standards for hostel room, but not for Spain and definitely not for Barcelona. They sure did their best in cleaning rooms, but the closet you get can not be called room.

We inform you that in order to open a Hostal in Spain, and in Barcelona, the establishment has to follow some rules and directions, about kind of furniture, room sizes, etc. If we are opened, is because we've follow the Government directions, so if you think the minimum size of the rooms in Spain and in Barcelona should be changed,...
