This is a typical older hostal for Barcelona. Don't expect too much. We made an early reservation using our credit card for a en-suite room but when we got there the receptionist said it was overbooked and she only had one room left with a small balcony (#4 in the residencia on Ronda de Universidad). The room was very small... More

Much depends on the room you get (but not necessarily the one you contract). Rooms 1, 4 & ?room are larger. Room 1 is the only one with private bath. Rooms 2 & 3 are 1/2 of an original room and very, very small for two people. The two hall baths (m/w) are small but sufficient. The bed in room... More

I believe the accommodation has rooms all over the immediate vicinity. I was given a room in No 23 (the residencia is no 11). I was taken there by the receptionist, a very pleasant young lady of Asian origin. She gave me the choice of 2 rooms as I had booked a private bathroom. One was larger that the other... More

We stayed for one night at the end of July and it was fine for our needs. The location really is great, right in the city center and near a metro station. The room itself was very rundown and VERY noisy. The sink and fridge were helpful, but the beds and noise made it a little rough. However, it was... More

This hostal is in a perfect location in the centre of Barcelona. After climbing three floors up the stairs we were told that this is the first floor : ) !? So I think the hostal is actually on the 6th or 7th floor. Good receptionist. The hostal was very quiet and room ok, except the bed, that was quite... More

All the rooms in this old run down hostel face the street which has continues traffic noise. If this doesnt keep you awake then the water pump system which each room has definitely will. every time someone in the hostel uses the water a loud pump starts up in each room! Rooms are tiny and old but the staff is... More

Perfect for location and great for a budget. Clean rooms, helpful staff - I even tried to use my Spanish, fridge in the room is useful for budget travellers. It is not a place for cheap people with high expectations, but for those who value comfort and are laid-back.

You cannot be better located than at Residencia Australia, 5 minutes from the Plaza Catalunia. The receptionist is helpful and the room was clean and tidy. The facilities were very good and a small fridge in the room is a bonus.

I stayed in this hostel for only one night with my boyfriend we had a double room with a shared bathroom . We really didn't expect much for the price we payed but where more than happy with what we received. The room was small but enough room for the two of us with a fan and large wardrobe. We... More

We were placed in an apartment that had two bedrooms (one had a bathroom in it, ours had the bathroom in the hallway). We had requested a private bathroom but were disappointed when we learned ours was not in the room itself. The hotel is extremely out-dated with no improvements to the furniture etc. Even the TV looks like it... More
