A simply furnished but spotlessly clean room and great bathroom, in a very central location just by the port in Barcelona. Only 5 minutes walk from Las Ramblas and therefore a perfect base from which to explore this fantastic city. The only slight niggles were the lack of coffee making facilities in the room (although there was a coffee vending... More

Great location, wonderful staff, extremely clean. No elevator and semi transparent bathroom door. Would highly recommend this hotel if stairs are not a problem. I would have given it a five had we received the room with a view we had requested and were promised. The air shaft was not to our liking.

We are a family of four adults (parents and 2 adult children). Our room had a large bed queen or king and two singles. They were very comfortable. The bathroom was in the room and large. The room was large and had a safe. A larger sister hotel was across the park and could help us if our reception was... More

Unfortunately there were roadworks which were very noisy at 7am for two out of the three nights, and the other morning we were disturbed by a very loud family checking in. We raised it with the staff daily but apparently the hotel was fully booked and we couldn't be moved. While the staff were polite, they didn't seem to care... More

Dear guest: First of all we want to express our gratitude for your nice words about our rooms. Secondly, we are very sorry for the inconveniences of the outside noise. The roadworks were an imposition of the City Council and it were neccesary, and we couldn't have made anything about it. Now, and thanks to that, we have a very... More

Looking for a no-nonsense hostal in downtown Barcelona? Read on! We were looking for a centric hostal in Barcelona and ended up with Som Nit Born because of the many positive comments on TripAdvisor. We were glad to have made this choice. It was a small hostal, but unlike the street and surrounding neighbourhood the indoor was clean, well decorated... More

I'm really happy with this hostel because I dind't expect that, first of all, they helped me with my luggage and then helped me too with information about the city of Barcelona. Quiet room, very confortable bed, and a kindly reception service with a really nice Francisco receptionist who helped me a lot with my doubts. I'll come back soon!!!!... More

We stayed 3 nights, my husband and I and our adult daughter. First, the entire street the hotel is on is under construction. Second, the check-in area is on the second floor, not the first, although the staff helped us with our bags. Our room was NOTHING like the photos. We had a high window that looked out onto a... More

Book this hotel was a big mistake! Tiny rooms smells rotten pipes. Rooms less than 10 meters. There is no place for luggage, no hairdryer, no fridge - totally nothing, empty rooms with the bed. It is a hostel in a worst meaning of it. Location is great, it is true, but you can find another hotel the same price... More

I would definitely recommend Som Nit Born. It's clean, crisp, modern and staff are very friendly and helpful. It is walking distance from train and metro stations also La Ramblas and Port Olimpico. There's no messing about with room service or breakfast, its a simple yet beautiful room only hotel. We loved it and wouldn't hesitate to go again.

I stayed in Som Nit Born in March 2014 for 4 nights. This place was great and clean and friendly and Im coming back. The staff speak english and are very helpful. a good advantage is location - 100 metres from Barceloneta subway station (transfer to airport train is easy), close to the sea
