This hostel has both basic hotel rooms on some floors and larger multi-bunk-bedded dormitory rooms on others. It is much used by student groups with their teachers, and as a result the dormitory sections can have very noisy parties in them at times. That being said, I didn't hear them from the hotel section where I stayed. Rooms are clean... More

Took 26 students to this hostal, was perfect location, very clean, good size rooms and excellent location. Would recommend to all tutors if planning a residential trip for over 18, or anyone who wants to just explore the city at a low cost. Will definitely use it again.

First the location is very nice but the hostel itself is not very good. Almost no Internet in the rooms and you have to go outside the room for Internet. The beds are very rough and the water in the shower was either too hot or too cold. Another surprise I had there is that i saw a small cockroach... More

Hostal is an average hotel.. Value for money is good and great location! The room is fine but it does not complete facility such as no power connection in the room i got. I was told this is due to renovation which should have been anticipated. Internet not very fast.

We arrived & forgot out ids, the guy behind reception was so unhelpful & just sat there saying 'sorry no ID no room' so I suggested we contact our 5 star hotel in Cambrils & have them email a colour scan copy which they did & all was sorted. The smell of the rooms were overpowered by bleach. The receptionist... More

This hostel has a great location but the rooms are extremely basic. We booked a 4 bed room with Booking.com expecting to see the nice orange covers in the pictures. Instead we got 2 steel bunk beds, that squeaked every time someone one moved! It was a very small room with a chair and table for 1 person. There are... More

You should stay here. The place definitely exceeded my expectations for a hostel, with clean rooms and private bathroom, fast wifi, nice breakfast in the morning, and a great location just off of La Rambla.

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
