Up until now, we have found TripAdvisor ratings to be an accurate and valuable rating system for hotels and restaurants. Martinval Hostal was a bad surprise for us. Based on the photos posted and the extraordinarily positive reviews, we expected a very decent place to stay. But several subtle red flags should have caught our attention. For example, many reviews... More

Hostal Martinval is well located, being about a 15-minute walk to Sagrada Familia and 20-minute stroll in the other direction to Las Ramblas. Room was clean. The economy double is basic and sparse. With the help of the pleasant and very accommodating staff we were able to move to a standard double room for just a few dollars more and... More

Great place to stay in Barcelona. Its only a few minutes walk from Passeg de Gracia street, and Sagrada de Familia. Plenty of good places to eat around, Carrefour within 2 minutes walk out the door, metro station arund 5 minutes walk. We had a room with a balcony with the view on the street. Hostel was probably one of... More

The place is located nearby the city centre and Passeig De Gracia is at a walking distance. There is no breakfast included, but you can get all what you need in the surroundings: there are bars, restaurants, pizzerias and there's a supermarket just downstairs! Good value for money, I would recommend it. I booked an online deal, a small room... More

We spent there 4nights and we had great time! our room (third floor) was pretty big and clean. the only think I'd suggest is to add the possibility to have breakfast. It'd be great!". the position is good; not so far from the center (the nearest metro station is Passeig de Gracia, 10min. by foot). The day of my birthday... More

I spent 7 nights in Hostal Martinval and I had a very nice time. The rooms are very clean and the staff is very kind. It was the first time to me in an hostel but it has been a very nice surprise. Hostal Martinval is located in the so called "golden square" of Barcelona and you can get to... More

The Matinval hostal's elevator is a museum piece, quite old and noisy, but works fast and well, once one has figured out and understood how it works. Reception staff was extremely nice and helpful, AAA! Room and bath were spacious and clean. WLAN Internet worked well. Hostal itself serves no breakfast or other food, but there are many small restaurants... More

We stayed at this hostel three nights and had a wonderful experience. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean. The staff is very helpful and basically gave us the "Barcelona 101" - metro, food, activities, etc. Lastly, this hostel is ideally located - far enough from too much hustle and bustle but close enough to be walking distance to all...

I have never stayed in a hostel before and was a bit wary about booking into one with my two friends for our stay in Barcelona. But, as we only had a limited budget and we really wanted to get away before university started again, we thought we'd take the risk and book into this hostel which appeared decent from... More
