My worst experience @ a Hostel / Hotel in my life. The ownership and staff were completely horrendous. DO NOT STAY HERE! Management will not honor any refund and I've listed my main issues below: 1. Management doesn't allow you to keep a key to your room. You must check in / check out every time you come or go.... More

in the heart of barcelona, one star hotel very clean and excellent price for solo traveler-- I would come back to this hotel but make sure you book early- there is nothing luxury about this hotel..but nothing better for the location and price.

Positives: Close to town, friendly staff, clean linen/towels, quiet, I only had to stay there two nights, it didn't smell too bad when I closed the bathroom door. Negatives: Dated decor, small/uncomfortable beds, dirty/smelly room, not secure, cramped room, overpriced. Not a pleasant stay.

The location is perfect, lots of bars and small shops around. I was here on new year's eve so I know that some things may be different than any other day of the year. But you have to be careful in the area at night, my boyfriend almost got his wallet stolen by a pickpocket right in front of the... More

Just returned today from a weekend in Barcelona and had this booked for me due to a change plans with our group, This was chosen as only a few yards from where the rest of the group were staying and what a dump. Now i dont mind a budget hotel but this was like something out of an american movie... More

I stayed here during the Festival of Mercé for about €80/night. The price was right, the location is great; just a 2 minute walk from Las Ramblas and the Liceu metro station... very easy to find. We had reliable free wifi, a fridge, fan, and air conditioning. The downside? Our room looked nothing like the pictures. We had a window... More

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.

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
