Finishing up a three-day trip in Barcelona. I think that people who leave reviews need to understand that this place is a hostel and not a hotel. That usually means no elevator, byob towels and toiletries, sharing bathrooms, busy areas with noise. And hostal baires actually is a little better than other hostels by providing some of those things. You... More

I went to Barcelona for a design meeting for 4 days. The hotel is located 5 minutes from las ramblas, so is really central. Its situated on the 1st floor of a 5 building floors, my room was really dark, the blind didn't open and it had a strong smell to detergent, to a point that cause me nauseas, it... More

For a low cost, you are situated in the heart of Las Ramblas AND have a small breakfast included (which consists of coffee, juice, muffins, toast)! If you are planning on staying anywhere in Las Ramblas, it is going to be noisy regardless. I was somewhat worried as people suggested bringing ear plugs, however the sound was not that bad... More

Stayed here in June 2013 with my boyfriend. We arrived just in time for the festival of St John which was amazing. Stayed in Hostal Baires for the three days we were in Barcelona. The best thing about this hotel is the location. It's located just off La Rambla, a short walk from Liceu metro station. A slightly longer walk... More

Spent 2 nights in between cruises, booked for the proximity to the cruise port & "breakfast" included. Absolutely horrible! I had stayed last year in Barceloneta for 4 months and thought to stay alittle closer and save on the cleaning fees of an apartment. What a mistake! First night my husband and I were in a room with shared bath... More

I came across Baires as I was looking for something at the last minute. Everything was booked up but I managed to find a room at this Inn. The rates were just in my budget which was ideal as other hostel in that area were higher. The place is nicely located and the beach/Old Town is near by. The rooms... More

1,Located at a alley of bar ,very close to the beach,so it would be a little noisy. 2,There is no independent toilet with inconvenience. 3,There is only a old man who just speak Spanish in the service desk. You get what you pay for.The price in this area is worth.

Hostel is located 2-3 minutes from La Rambla and Port Vell and it is its biggest advantage. However if you are looking for outstanding quality, you can be disappointed. It is clean inside the room and in the bathroom and you could expect cleaning service everyday. From that point of view everything is ok. However you should take into consideration... More

The only one good thing about this hostal is its location. The entrance is not very welcoming at all.Cimbing the stone stairs to reception with 4 suitcases was not an easy task.Then we were shown our doubleroom with own bathroom (i booked this as i had looked at the professional photos) what a disapointment! The windowpane was broken and it... More
