I have a lot of experience travelling multiple continents and many hostels, I would consider myself well prepared to evaluate lodging at this point, although this is my first time to do so. While booking our travel for Europe we predominantly used hostel world to evaluate and book travel. We have had a great experience until arriving at Ole Barcelona,... More

Location: right next to Sagrada Familia...but far from anything else. You must look for the building number because there is absolutely no sign or piece of paper indicating there is a hostel (or anything) there. Service: the male receptionist who "welcomed" us and the girl who checked us out,must be the least friendly hostel workers ever!!! Not sure we heard... More

The hostel is quite good organized and has only professional and friendly staff. It doesn`t matter if it's day or night, they are there for you and will take care. As well as regarding advices for your spare time! We stayed there for one week - next time same choice for shure!

Ole is a good option if you are looking for budget accommodation of the 'no frills' variety. It's very cheap in a city that can otherwise be quite pricey for tourists. Added to that, its location is excellent, being right next to the Sagrada Familia and in walking distance to the old and new towns. The main downside for me... More

This was my first hostel experience, and it wasn't terrible. The building looked really sketchy from the outside, and upon entering the building it was clear that it was very old. The first night of my stay was in a 6-bed girls only room. It was fine, but very cramped. There was barely space to move around in the room.... More
