Stayed 2 nights in 4 bed dorms which was located on patio side so very quiet. I was pleasantly surprised as this is an apartment converted into a hostel but large enough with few good sizes bathrooms. There is a kitchen where you can store food and drinks and large common room with a terrace. Very quiet by night which... More

Friendly and helpful staff, great location, very good transport connections. Lots of restaurants, bakeries and cafes are nearby. Clean and cozy room, the only bad thing - no air condicioning. Great terrace!

I have visited Barcelona several times. This is one of the best located hotels I have stayed. Between the Paseo Cataluna and Paseo de Gracia. The most see streets in Barcelona. Clean. Friendly staff. Theyt game lots of tips of what to see and do. Highly recommended. Bathrooms like everywhere in Europe small and odd for American standards.

It's location is it's best feature, relatively central to town and great public transport links. We had a room at the front of the building which had a small indoor balcony area looking out onto Carrer del Rossello. The staff were great, we checked in around 1am without any problems. Bed was clean and comfortable, however the bathrooms/showers although plentiful,... More

Converted two flats on the principal make for large open spaces. Between La Ramblar and Passegnde Gracias close to all. Metro up hill from transport to air port. Beautiful old stained glass windows, terrace and a small kitchen, are all provided. Fourth time here.

I stayed at this place based on the great reviews here. I am guessing the place must have really went downhill quickly? Firstly the staff were rather rude and unfriendly. It was obvious they hated their job and didn't want to be there. There were only two bathrooms, and one of the showers in the bathrooms was out of order!... More

Hostel Duo is an excellent apartmemt hostel, with friendly and welcoming staff. It's located in Diagonal, a short walk from the Metro and Casa Milà. Ideal for those intending to use accommodation primarily as a base from which to explore Barcelona.

I've stayed in Somnio - the sister hotel of this so knew I wouldn't be disappointed. We had a HUGE room with lovely view. I love the colour scheme and design. The shared bathrooms are fine - and one was next door to our room so we never had to queue. The staff were lovely and helpful and chilled cava... More

The hostel is clean and tidy with friendly staff. The bed was really comfortable after walking round the town all day. Would definately stay again. The outside area is peaceful and a good place to have a drink and unwind.
