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.

I stayed here over Easter with my mum and aunt and I have to say it was wonderful. Location was amazing, right in the heart of everything with the metro right outside your door.

GREAT location - RIGHT off The Ramblas. Small room with twin beds, but certainly adequate. Clean, free wi-fi, free breakfast, elevator, helpful front desk. What more could one ask for a very reasonably priced room for Barcelona. Confused by the Hostal designation in the name. Guess some of the rooms are set up with 3 or 4 twin beds that... More

This was a clean quiet little hostal just off la Ramblas. Great location. Good breakfast. Typical small european room, but very nicely updated. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Good value for money. Just across from Liceu metro station.

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.
