We have made a booking for 2nd of Nov for 2 days, couldn’t make it due to changes in travel schedule so it was no show and it was charged, booked again for 4th Nov for 2 days, when arriving at the check-in counter, I have informed the reception (Mario) that I have been charged earlier and I know it...

I stayed here for 3 nights in April 2015. I seriously considered cancelling based on the bad reviews on TA. Bottom line: 1. I am glad I didn't cancel. 2. Great location, ultra clean, friendly employees, crazily cheap. Weird signs and obsession with cleanliness, sure. Is that such a bad thing? And yeah, don't stay here if you can't deal... More

We were 2 20 year old girls who were looking for a cheap, nice hostel for a relaxing break. Firstly the location of this hostel was perfect. We were in walking short easy distance of everything, including the gothic quarter, beach, marina, main roads and supermarkets. The hostel seems very safe as you need a key for one entrance then...

I really struggled to believe that such a place exists in Europe. We knew we had to pay for linen so we got our own. We got there and then found out we have to pay for pillows and blankets! We try to say that this was not stated in the booking.com description and the lady said she was aware... More

After reading the previous reviews I was really worried about arriving at this hostel. We stayed for two night and had a double bedroom with our own bathroom. The hostel has a fantastic location, close to the beach and la rambla etc. The hostel looks a bit run down as you go through the entrance and up the stairs but... More

My partner and I (both backpackers and experienced with "budget" hotels/hostels) made the worst decision in booking this place; so much so that we thought of forfeiting our money and going to a different hotel to enjoy our time more. Whilst one of the staff members was helpful, the others follow you around enforcing rules. There is also an additional... More

It is the worst hotel that we have ever stayed until now! If u don't mind living in a prison for a few days, yoked by all the intolerable rules and yelled at by the unbelievable owners, just choose this one! Rule No.1 - Do not wash any type of clothing: socks, underwear, t-shirts, etc. If u do so, u... More

The place is very well located and very clean really. the rooms are small and the beds are not really comfortable. they charge for extras but we didn't need any of those extras because we were out all the time. I would probably come again but what turned me off really was the fact that I booked for a double... More

Excellent location that's true, but those rules!!!Me and my partner were staying in Barcelona for few nights, at Pension Palacio as it seemed to be quite cheap and close to all atractions. We needed somewhere to sleep only as we were out all day anyway. I must say Pension is very clean, staff was cleaning 24/7. There are extra costs... More

Plus: clean and in good location. Minus: very noisy (on a high traffic avenue, sirens etc 24/7) - I could still hear the traffic through my earplugs. Tiny room. Rules everywhere (don't do this don't do that!). Compulsory wake up at 9am (whether you are checking out or not). Given the above, 50 euros is overpriced for a bunk bed.... More

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighborhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
