The location of this lodging could not have been better. It is an easy, secure walk to the airport express stop and to both of our scheduled tour start points, Montserrat and Figueres. The price was extraordinarily fair for such location, and though the room with its own shower was small, no problem because what was there was more than... More

We came to Barcelona for the GP and with prices at a premium we were just after a cheap place to stay. We couldn't have found any better place than Hostal Fontanella. We had a room with a private bathroom and the shower was hot and powerful, the beds comfy and the room secure. Couldnt ask for any more really... More

Located in the very heart of the ciry, the hostel offers all the necessary amenities. All the main landmarks are at a stone's throw from there. I was travelling alone and stayed at the hostel for 5 nights. The Art Nouveau style of the city is also characteristic of the hostel building with its high ceilings, winding stairs, ornaments and...

My brother and I couldn't have found any better place than Hostal Fontanella. Very central, literally 3-minute-walk from Placa Catalunya, with its transport system connecting you to the aiport, the main rail station De Sants, and many tourist attractions of Barcelona. Even being so close to the amenities of La Rambla and Laietana street (so plenty of shops, bars, restaurants),... More

Stayed at the hostal with 5 friends for two nights in April 2013. It's central location is ideal for Las Ramblas and the old Gothic quarter as well as being only a stone's throw from the Metro. We had three triple rooms since we were a party of six male pensioners !!!! THe rooms were adequate for our needs and... More

This hostel is right in the center of Barcelona. It is clean, safe, and the owners are very friendly. It had all we needed, and we had a great time in Hostal Fontanella. We highly recommend it to anyone who would like to stay in the center of Barcelona.

The Hostel is located in a great area--very easy to walk to many attractions and close to Subway stations. The workers there were very helpful. We stayed in a triple room that had a shower and sink in the room, and a toilet across the hall. The hostel has free wireless internet, but the connection didn't work while we were... More

I cannot imagine better located ho(s)tel. 100m to the Placa Catalunya - link to the airport, subway and tourist bus - Busturistik (recommended); Rambla just 5 min walk, just in the centre of the old City. Lot of restaurants in the vicinity. Don't be put off by the picture, the actual place is nicer, looks like Old Grandma's house (in... More

This small hotel has a great family-run atmosphere. To begin with, it's on the 2nd floor (although really it works out to be something like the fourth floor) of a building on the Via Laietana; a really neat old-school elevator provides easy access for those with heavy luggage. Although its a ways from the main Sants train station, I was... More
