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

By far the worst hostel of my life, luckly we were leaving after two nights. The room had no windows and there was no space, it was like living in a corridor. The whole place was extremely humid and there was no hot water. They took us 45€, this hostel isn't worth 1€ Don't come here, even though the location... More

Eesthetically ugly, uncomfortable rooms, poor cleaning, even no blankets on the bed. It's true, breakfast was free, but it was horrible and the dishes were dirty.The only positive thing is the proximity to the sea and to the metro and the kindness of the staff.

Location is unbeatable - it is next to the most popular beach in the city and literally a 15 second walk to the sand. There is a free breakfast included and generally good facilities. Now the bad thing - we got hardly any sleep. It is a party hostel 24/7. If you want sleep, then don't stay here. But in... More

This hostel is perfect if you only came to Barcelona to party. It is located ON the beach. Seriously. You walk out the door and it's a 30 foot walk to the sand. There are many great, reasonably priced restaurants in the area, as well as a grocery store. The staff is generally rude and unhelpful. There is a day... 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.
