I want to warn those who intend to stay in this hostel: my daughter stayed there for several nights in August with three friends. She enjoyed her stay very much until she returned to her room one evening and found that her iPod and charger (total worth 250 euros) had disappeared during the day. The door was locked. She reported... More

This "Hostal" was almost perfect. I gave it 4 stars because of the staff. very disinterested and uninviting. I am American, so I guess I am used to the over the top greetings and customer service. That being said this place is excellent for the value. You can come and go 24 hours. They take your key when you leave... More

We stayed at the double with bathroom which appeared to be triplets (three single beds) with bathroom but we reassembled the beds so it was practically a double. Bathroom was clean and shower good. The staff seemed a little bit disinterested of the customers but that didn't bother us. That is a lot better than faking to be nice and... More

The staff were really friendly, helpful and spoke good English. I stayed in a single room which was basic but clean and tidy. New towels were provided each day. There was a communal area with complimentary tea and coffee. You could buy a host of drinks (beer, water, coke) from reception. Free WiFi and a computer which you could use... More

The hostel was reasonably clean and in a very good location. An easy shuttle from the airport and very close to Placa Catalunya. There is also a travel agency just a few doors down so that was helpful when booking the bus tour. The staff was friendly and it wasn't noisy at night. My only small complaint is that the... More

I stayed here about 12 months ago when we went to Barcelona. What a stunning city!! When we got into central Barcelona we got lost and couldn't find our bearings but eventually did get to it via a taxi and it turned out it wasn't even that far from the centre. About 10 minutes on foot. Upon arrival we were... More

We found a very cheap hotel for one night , but it was so good, it was clean, nice staff, balconies, no noice from the street, only the bad thing about this hotel is the enterence which is located in the residential building and on the 3d floor :) funny, the rest is good

I liked the location but I had a drunk/drugged crazy person one night that made lots of noise outside my room and when I went out to investigate he tried to push himself into my room. I had to pull the door closed on his fingers but he wouldnt let go and kept shouting at me in Spanish! I was... More

Hostal Central's location is just great, just some minutes by feet from Plaza Catalunya and metro stations. It gives you a good opportunity to reach any place you plan to visit in Barcelona. It's easy to get from there to Casa Batlló, Las Ramblas, and by the way to/from airport too, because aerobus's stop is right on plaza Catalunya. There... More
