The location is amazing! It's about the only thing this hostel has going for it, well except for the friendly staff. The rooms are very small and warm, and there were lots of ants in the bathroom...the stairs leading up are so narrow you can barely move, never mind carry a case. Maybe for one or two nights this place... More

Located centrally on Las Ramblas. About 10 minute walk from Placa Catalunya where you can catch the airport bus. A minute walk from Liceu metro station, where the rest of the sights and touristy spots can be easily accessed from. Very close to the Gothic Quarter. Plenty of shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs etc nearby. Free wifi, excellent signal.

Stayed for 1 night. For it's price very reasonable hostal. Don't expect luxurious or spacious rooms. Staff was friendly, breakfast was ok, location is good (close to market). The room was clean, but small. Especially the bathroom was rather small. Aircon was a bit cold, compared to outside temperatures.

Stayed for 3 nights. Shocked at first as it was more of a youth hostel rather than a hotel as advertised. Room was ok but with old bed and furniture. Not good value for money. Only choose as a last resort.

This is a great little hotel. It's clean, beds are very comfortable. It's very basic, the staff are very friendly. Excellent location. If you have a room that faces the alley (as we did) it can be very noisy at night but this is easily solved with ear plugs. Shower room was clean, shower was hot. Can't ask for anything... More

Excellent location, right by a metro station and Las Ramblas and walking distance to many attractions and right by shops, restaurants and bars. We stayed in a private room with an ensuite washroom and a balcony. We had no issues, except I would note that the shower was very tiny and the stairwell is super tiny! The room was nothing... More

We had a 3-bed-room with (six!) towels, blowing fan, bathroom, balcony and refrigerator. We didn't booked it especially, so it was an great surprise! We loved the cute, meditteranean balcony, with chairs and folding shutters. For each bed there is a bottle of water as a gift from the hostal, besides a citymap and a ball-pen. In the bnathroom you... More

It's essentially the double-, triple-, and 4-person rooms that most hostels have, just in a separate location from the main hostel (in this case, A&A). The front desk staff were very gracious and helpful, answering our questions and offering us advice every time we pulled out a map. There are also no lockouts, which is a huge help in a... More

I have stayed at Hostal Palermo every time I've visited Barcelona. (5 years in a row) The location is so great that I don't mind that the rooms are small, the staircase not so good if you have huge bags, as we usually do. We usually don't spend so much time in our rooms so we don't mind. The rooms... More
