Frankly the room we had for three was laughably small for two, and the shower perfect for a skinny hobbit, but the location off La Rambla was fantastic, the staff speak English, the breakfast is included and it's all very clean. Heartily recommended - it made the cabin on our cruise feel palatial.

We booked this hostel for one night - it is immaculately clean. The rooms are small but this wasn't an issue as we weren't going to spend any time in them. It turned out that we had a balcony overlooking las rambles which was amazing. The receptionist was very helpful, printing off our boarding passes and stowing our luggage after... More

We had an amazing view of the Ramblas and easy access to the train station and city by metro. Very friendly staff, nice breakfast. Be aware that the internet is a bit spotty and the AC is present but minimal. Would absolutely stay here again.

Mare Nostrum is in a great spot on La Rambla. It is a small but functional and clean hostal, the breakfast isnt amazing but it does the job. I would definately stay again if i return to Barcelona and am looking for a Hostal.

The location was perfect. Right off Las Ramblas. In the thick of it hookers and all. Very safe. The richness of life down below and then pretty darn soundproof room. Mostly, from all the outside noise. The rooms were clean and basic. The 24 hour staff was so kind and always helpful. I wouls surely go again!

6 couples stayed here last weekend to celebrate our friends 50th, and nobody had a bad word to say about it. Rooms were modern and very adequate, with aircon/TV, lovely bathroom and a fantastic soundproofing, never heard a thing. Also brilliant location, central Las Ramblas. Breakfast was very good, with toast cereal, croissants and yoghurts and fruit, lovely.

This hostal is in a perfect location right on las ramblas. Rooms are small but clean have everything you need. I wouldn't recommend staying here for a long period because of the size of the room but for a short break it was ideal. It is right outside the metro station and wifi and breakfast are included which is a... More

Staying in La Rambla

Neighborhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
