- To the owner(s), you got to consider renovating this place. - To the tourists: despite the conditions, it's a great stay as the location & staff are great. - the restaurant downstairs has the see view. - breakfast is also very good!

I recently spent the weekend in Barcelona with some friends and we chose this hostel for its value and location which did not disappoint. Having read previous reviews I was slightly sceptical but never the less overall satisfied with the friendly staff and clean rooms. There was a slight issue on arrival with the card machine but this was rectified... More

I stayed here one night prior to my cruise. This hostel was in a great location with the water across the way. We paid 15 euro each for a mixed 7 bed dorm. The place was clean. It was a little warm during the day but was appreciated at night. Each bunk has its own power outlet. The bathroom was... More

This was by far the best location of any hostel I have stayed at. You walk out the front door and you are just inches away from the sand of Barcelona beach. The beds were super comfortable, but bring your own blanket. Because of the amazing low price per night, they do ask you to bring some of our own... More

Seriously, not even exaggerating, this was the worst place I have EVER stayed. PROS - Yes, the location is great. But there were many other hotels and hostels in this area, some for the same rates and others just 10 euro more. The dining hall was clean and comfortable. They offer wifi. CONS - We were greeted by a cranky... More

I spent two nights in this place and there had been enough. I found a dirty bed, in the bathroom everything worked badly and the people at the reception didn't give us the attention we needed. Our room was a hallway and the walls don't reach the ceiling, so the people in the other room could listen to us and... More

My husband and I knew that this hostel was on the beach but there is no way we could've known it was directly in front of the beach. Especially for the price, this is as good as you're going to find. You walk straight out to the ocean. The only reason this hostel isn't my favorite is because they only... More

Amazing location, right on the beach. :) Very good connection to any part of the city, also in the middle of the night :) Attentive service and delicious breakfast at a surprisingly low price. The rooms and bathrooms clean. Strongly recommended!!

The location is owesome, the hostel is situated right on the beach. You can go swimming in the morning when the beach is empty. Metro is 10 min by foot, train station, Parc de la Ciutadella and the Zoo is 15 min by foot. Barry Gotic is 20 min, La Rambla is also 20 min. And of course clubs are... More

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighborhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
