Travelled with two teenager sons and this place was perfect for us. Location was so good! Walking distance to almost everything, and the Metro (Liceu) a few minutes away. City center 20-25 min walk, same distance the other direction and you are at the seaside. Situated in the old, narrow and cosy Gothic quarters, just off La Rambla. Our windows... More

Please read the other reviews. Take their advice and go somewhere else. I wish I had read the reviews. A door to our room didn't even lock. For 2 days I was told that no one else had a problem with it. They made no attempt to fix the door during our stay. Barcelona was booked out. We couldn't even... More

The good thing about this place: the location. The lack of air flow and the shower situation were terrible though. We paid for A/C in our room and it made no difference. It was extremely hot all day and all night. Given that it's August, we got very sweaty throughout the day, but the shower really didn't give us any... More

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

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

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.
