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.

We just spent four nights here and I'm pretty sure we got the best room in the place, it was nice and big, had a nice little sitting area and big open windows to the main st. This made the stay comfortable! We wear earplugs if needed and you will need them here. The noise from the road is very... More

Based on previous reviews I did expect a more funky and renovated hostel. Our private room was great and we loved the terrace view and location wise it was superb. Things that let the place down are the general uncleanliness (have stayed at hostels in Germany, Portugal, St Petersburg, Denmark & Ireland and this place is definitely the dirtiest we've... More

A very aristocratic hostel, with a stunning terrace to chillax upon. Comfortable beds, very clean. The receptionist was very helpful (and charming), gave us some excellent tips on where to eat and swim. Good location from the point of view of visiting diverse parts of the city. Good transport connections. Wish I could have spent a few more days soaking... More
