Good location, located just behind the cathedral and walking distance to most attractions. The hostal was a little difficult to find at first as it is on the fourth floor of what looks like an apartment building with no real signage outside. So you just have to ring the buzzer and hope they let you in. We had a corner... More

I know you can't have the best if you don't have money to spend, so I didn't expect much out of this location. All summed up the price is directly related to what they give: the location is great, you are in the center of the center of Barcelona, right behind the cathedral, minutes from everywhere else, beach, medieval town,...

lovely location and friendly staff. A couple of suggestion: there are new beds, so they can change the mattress too. The windows must be renew.... it seems the window is still open, but the square is not noisy.

I stayed here for a couple nights at the end of October. For a solo traveller, this hostel had what I needed: a central, awfully convenient location as a base to explore the city; and a bed at the end of the day. The hostel pretty much came as advertised after reading some of the other reviews. The location is... More

I went to this hostel and was very happy with its proximity to the center of the city. However, there were a couple of things that weren't so good. First, the elevator was tiny and I could barely fit my bags into it. Second, they only took cash and I had to borrow money. Lack of air conditioning was another... More

Great location in Barcelona. 15-20 minutes walk to the beach, and 5-10 minutes to La Rambla. Cleanliness in the (shared) bathroom was below average, but not the worst. Hostel didn't have an AC so it got pretty hot in the room since we were there in July. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The hostel had a room with 2... More

Excellent location, in the Barri Gothic quarter, right next to the cathedral. The building itself is an old tenement with a charming lift. The rooms are very basic, ours was only equipped with a basin and a mirror (apart from beds and bedside tables of course), but they are clean and serve well their purpose. It can be a bit... More

Stayed in Jan easy to reach from underground clean basic rooms walking distance to cathedral old town harbour ect .Lost my wallet whilst I was there and Julia at reception was very helpful. Don't forget to sit out on the balcony and enjoy the view. For a budget stay hard to beat.
