Before coming to Barcelona a friend of mine suggested this hostel and I couldn't have been any happier with this decision! The hostel is located right in the heart of Barcelona therefore making it very practical when exploring the city. The hostel staff were very welcoming and managed to help out with all my questions about the city. The walking... More

This hostel was so central, only a street behind La Rambla. The people working there were so friendly and were willing to help, give advice on what to go and see and they were approachable. The dorms were basic but good, with big lockers to keep your stuff. The wash rooms were big and overall it was a safe environment,... More

My friend and I stayed at Be Mar for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great location, facilities, breakfast, and most of all - great staff. We asked many questions of the hostel staff including dinner recommendations, ideas for what to do during the day, and even help booking our train tickets online. Each of these inquires was handled brilliantly... More

This hostel, though located very close to La Rambla, is actually in the centre of the red light district (so dont even think you'll be out and about at night). In fact, the horrible location could even be considered to be a minor flaw amongst the other horrid features of this hostel. These include (but are certainly not limited to)... More

My friend and I stayed here and it was absolutely horrible. We booked an apartment room which was in another building down the street from the front desk. This wasn't a problem. The room was clean and did its job BUT we had HUGE issues with the shower. The shower wouldn't work and we were told that someone would be... More

It is a really good, cozy and clear hostel. We've met a Greek guy at the reception for our good luck:) The breakfast was good with cereal, coffee, bread, jam and butter. I would totally recommend that as it is in a convenient spot.

Stayed in a shared room during a solo trip, found everything very pleasing - good price, clean room with good lockable storage facilities. Very central which is great for a tourist, close to some great restaurants and offered a nice breakfast. Friendly atmosphere which encouraged interaction, plus the option to pick up/leave books behind where desired. Internet facilities could do... More

We stayed in these apartments during our Barcelona leg of our Catalonia interrailling adventure. The room that we had was on the fourth floor and quite small (for an apartment) me and my partner could not both cook at the same time because the kitchen was in a skinny hallway. There is also no oven, so pizza is off the... More
