Convenient location, amazing staff (they made our trip very easier to plan with numerous practical tips), but smaller (yet manageable) rooms. I would definitely come back to Hostal Centric when in Barcelona next time.

The employees at reception were outstanding and so patient with us. We only stayed one night but were probably some of the neediest people. We needed to mail stuff home and do laundry and get to the Segrada Familia and the cruise pier on a day of taxi strike and they held our hands through all of it. Our room... More

Extremely helpful staff. They also speak excellent english. Room was clean and served our purpose well. Reasonably priced for Barcelona. Within easy walking distance to everywhere we needed to go. Laundromat several blocks away - "Splash". They have a room for keeping your luggage if you arrive early or need to store it after you check out. We had a... More

I wonder how you would feel...Allow me to give you some background, so that you get the full picture. I am (in years at least) a "middle-aged" woman traveling to a foreign country for the first time...and traveling alone for the first time as well.

Dear guest, I am sorry for all the inconvenience caused. Although you seem to be reluctant, I can not figure out any other reason than a language misunderstanding as we were already fully booked for the day you intended to extend your reservation for. Furthermore, extending a reservation implies a new prepayment and the printing of an updated welcome card... More

Hostal Centric is a nice little hostal in perfect position for exploring the city. You can go almost everywhere by foot. If You do not like to walk, there are 3 metro stations very close to the hotel. Station for aerobus from airport is also within few minutes walking, which was great for us. There are also grocery shops, bakeries,... More

What a find. Great value in a really useful location for getting to all the best places. The spotless room was all you need but not massive, of course. Room & shower (hot & powerful) were kept just as spotless with plenty of towels throughout our stay. Without exception, the pleasant guys on the desk were really friendly & helpful,... More

Hostal Centric was great! The guys on the front desk were really friendly and helpful. The room was a reasonable size for a city centre hotel and was very quiet. It had a proper window that opened and looked out the back of the hotel. There's no breakfast in the hotel but breakfast at Moritz round the corner was fab.... More

The hotel feels very new and modern. The location is excellent, very close from Plaza Catalunya, metro stations, bus stops, etc. There are restaurants and supermarkets in the neighborhood. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready but they kept our luggage in a safe room. The room was very comfortable, bathroom had a tub and very spacious. The only... More
