We stayed here in June, 2013 (sorry I'm late!!!). It's a cute little hotel very well located. Just renovated, the rooms are really small (almost like cruise cabins) but everything is new and very clean. The bathrooms are ok (tight shower), and you have wifi and a very polite front desk willing to help you in anything you need. It's... More

The only thing this hostel is really near is the Sagrada. The area is very nice and felt safe but in order to get to any of the sites, you will be taking multiple metro lines, buses, or cabs, and better be good with directions (which luckily we are). That being said, the staff here was so nice and helpful... More

I thought this was a usual backpackers dive but was pleasantly surprised at the at the maintenance. It was kept clean always - even the shared bathroom. There was a good supply of towels. The 2 ladies, Amanda & Monica, who manage the place were very helpful & guiding you around the city. It was nice and quiet, perhaps because... More

There is 24 hours concierge (slight exaggeration) but our flight was delayed by3hours and we arrived in middle of the night; It was nice to buy a... More

Micro in commonroom and small fridge in every bedroom . Small but working shower, toilet and washbasin-unit and plenty of hot water. (Some rooms have shared bathroom). Futonbeds - we like... More

We had a good time in Hostal Central Barcelona and probably go back to the same hotel once again. The location and the service of the hotel was very OK. The people of the hotel were friendly and helpful.

Arriving at midnight, there was an issue picking up keys- they had been left at a cafe next door, however there was a hostel person on site. The tiny lift just about fit one person and baggage and the other person took the stairs. On arrival in our private ensuite room, we were met with a plastic bag of rubbish.... More

Good staff, good location close to two metro stations, 10min walk to LA Rambla. The room were small, but clean. We had air conditioner and we didn't heard any noise from the street. We love this place.
