My wife and I are currently staying at this hostal. It is very basic and cheap and if that's what you are looking for, it is great. Be aware that there is no safe in the room and it cost 2 euros a day for a safe near the laundry room. Sounds great but today I discovered accidentally that the... More

I spent a week in Barcelona with some friends. we stayed in the hostel, but we were really surprised by the service there - it was better than in a hotel. I would go there again next time I am in Barcelona As cons: the beds weren't that comfortable

Very close metro station-Parallel. walking distance to center. La Rambla. It's my second time stayed here! If you don't mind basic room, poor WiFi signal than this is pretty good hostal. Great location,reasonable price!

Clean towels and wifi. We left a big mess when we left and when we came back it was clean and organised. Fair wifi. No air... More

The price for this hostel was great. The rooms were basic but, it is a hostel, so it is what we expected. The staff on the front desk, mainly one particular man, was incredibly helpful. He talked with us over a map for quite some time, happily it seemed. He gave us great recommendations and tips on what to see... More

No aircondition = Super hot rooms Dirty rooms. The surrounding neighbourhood is super sketchy. No service whatsoever. No fridge, no clean towels, no wifi, no nothing. People living nearby threw stuff at our windows, because we were laughing at 8pm in the evening in our room. The hotel manager is an angry little man, who almost threw us out of... More

The room was small, but perfectly adequate for my trip, everything was clean. Not much soundproofing so did get a little noisy in the evenings. Breakfast was limited. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
