This is more like a hotel than a hostel. We really enjoyed our 5 night stay - the hostel is clean, tidy, staff are friendly and it's so central you can walk everywhere. Yes, the rooms are small but it has everything you need. Who comes to Barcelona to spend all their time in a hotel room? We were in... More

Arrived at 11:30 PM and found there were 60 stairs before the lobby and lift. Very kind manager found me a room at Hotel Curious which is a sister hotel......What could have been a great problem for me was so quickly solved.....So while the amenities for this hotel needs to be changed know that their service and location are fabulous.

I think that never again I have to spend time investigating the Barcelona hotel offer as I have now found the perfect place to stay! The location is absolutely excellent, the rooms are tiny but modern and spotless (great shower!), friendly staff, Wi-Fi worked well, breakfast is basic but adequate - all in all excellent value for money.

Hotel Mare Nostrum was the best hostel we stayed in on our trip in Italy and Spain. It's rooms are a good size and have been recently updated. The location is perfect and the staff is wonderful.

Halfway down Las Ramblas this hotel is perfectly positioned for investigating the whole city with the Metro outside the door and buses/taxis passing all day. The staff are faultless, so knowledgeable and helpful they couldn't do enough for us. I asked for a room with a balcony as we were celebrating hubby's 65th birthday, and we got one..overlooking Las Ramblas.... More

The mare nostrum is a perfect place to stay in Barcelona. Spotless clean rooms, clean towels, good shower and a balcony overlooking the ramblas, what more could you want? A leisurely 10 minute walk to either the Port Olympic or Placa da Catunya and a metro stop right outside the hostal means you can really explore the city with ease... More

First of all, this is not a hostel or at least it has normal hotel rooms as you would expect albeit in European hotel sizes (i.e. smaller than US standards). It didn't bother us though as we were just 2 and didn't need anything else than a be, a shower space and some place to put our clothes. It is... More

We had a great stay at Hostal Mare Nostrum! The location was amazing! And we had a great balcony view of Las Ramblas.

Me and a friend had an excellent stay here for two nights. Our room looked right into Las Ramblas and the room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was also good and great for the price. Would stay here again. Staff were very friendly and helpful, we were given maps and all the information we needed.
