Overall just a really good hostel. Room, bathroom and kitchen were spotless... Lovely showers, beds are so comfy and individual aircon unit for each room so you can control the temp, which is a massive bonus! Would definitely stay there again!

This place was great. Remember you need to share a bathroom and kitchen. So don't complain about that.. Also, expect it to be more like a hostel experience. So expect younger people to be staying there. Bathrooms were always kept very clean!!! Which was great. Room was good size. Clean. And our room (twin room) had it's own basin. So... More

It's a simple and clean and resty hostel in the Gothic quarter. It is on the fourth floor with no elevator, but there's a few minutes walking from the Rambla, Catalunya and the Cathedral Barcelona. Fair accomodation for your money.

Mariluz Hostel is located in a good spot. But it is filled with young people partying and staying up all night. We were woken up one night by an idiot banging on the door screaming at a friend to let him in at 4am. This place is only for young people traveling on the cheap staying up all night. Families...

Perfect location for exploring Barcelona. Public transport close, airport bus walking distance, grocery stores for self catering and snacks nearby plus endless choice of restaurants. Tiny room [double] but very clean. Shared bathrooms clean. One good sized bathroom but the other 2 showers are tiny. Up a lot of stairs so not suitable for people with big cases. Our room... More

We had two adults and two children staying in a room at the Mariluz. The room was a little tight for 4, the beds ok, but the pillows terrible! As said elsewhere, it's a long way up the stairs! On the positive, it is very cheap, very friendly and in a great location

Despite being really close to the Ramblas action, it's in a pretty quiet location. Rooms are tiny, and there's no lift for the 3 flights of stairs, but it is really really clean (even in the shared bathrooms we had - they must be cleaned continuously). Staff were exceptionally welcoming and helpful - sorted out a problem we had with... More

Good price- get room #1 if you can. We ended up changing rooms due to sewer pipe smell coming from our sink. Rooms are tight and tiny but we made it work. You may want to explore where to book online as I discovered it was actually a better deal to book through a third party rather than directly with... More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
