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

Brand new hostel located by the sea. Nice view and location. The hostel itself is very clean, organized, friendly stuff and breakfast provided. I spent 3 days at this hostel and found out it was easy access to train station and near by with restaurants. There have a few type of rooms/dorms to choose based on your preferences. So many...

Free breakfast - cereal, toast and fruit - standard. Very friendly staff. It isn't particularly dirty but it was very busy when I was there in August so wasn't extremely clean. A strange layout with no real communal areas apart from a tiny area where you can rent a computer. Not the best but OK for solo travellers - dorms... 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.
