Some staff were unfriendly and not willing to help. Room was ok, but too hot in August -- no air conditioning. However, location is perfect -- close to El Born (best area in Barcelona) and beach by foot.

We chose this hostel for two good reasons: location and price. We certainly didn't expect a 5-star hotel for our 3-night stay in Barcelona, but we certainly expected to be able to sleep at night and be able to take a shower every morning! Right from the start we couldn't wait to get out of there. We arrived late on... More

The beach as well as La Rambla are within a walking distance. The area is great, there are plenty of nice cafes and restaurants. The rooms in the hostel are nice and... More

Very good location with good access to historic areas and beach. Rooms are small and basic. Staffing costs are minimised by the cleaner also doing night/early morning front desk, but cutting corners by cleaning rooms of early departures. Result = you get woken at 6am by someone banging around and dragging laundry baskets so they can get off earlier. Not... More

Room: apartment away from street - very spartan but clean. Bunk beds, pillows and linen ok. Service: helpful. Location: brilliant, if beach, gothic and rambla are high on your list. Value: hard to do better for the price in this area.

Cleaned daily, the Hostal Nuevo Colon provides a great base to all of Barcelona's attractions which can be accessed simply via the local metro links from Barceloneta and the Citudella. There are further bus links, trams and, opposite the hostal itself, the mainline train station which provides access to Ruess, Paris and many other locations. Within a ten minute walk,... More

The hotel is very simple and basic but decent and very clean. The bathroom are in good condition. Great location, close to everything, close to metro station. There are few restaurants and small grocery store. The elevator is very small, fit only 3 people no luggage, but ok.
