The location is very good, close to metro station and the maginificent Labyrenth Park. Breakfast is ok. Lots of students around. Best price. Some problems with the plumbing but still comparatively a clean hotel.

To begin with the location is ideal, from the metro its about 10 minutes walk. The staff is well trained and very helpful. Its a really big hostel and has a feel of a students hostel. There is wifi in the anteroom area, which is also equipped with TT table, coffee machines (1 Euro/cup) etc. The rooms are basic, but... More

I went here on a school trip with over 40 pupils and the receptionist staff were immediately very polite and helpful. The communal area is fun with a table tennis table, a cinema area and table football. The gym is extremely well equipped. The metro station is a short walk from the accommodation and there is a lovely park right... More

This place was the venue of a summer camp for me, so my experience may not be the same as other travelers. If you're looking for budget accommodation, Agora is perfect. Although it may not be in the city center, one can enjoy the quiet and serenity around campus Mundet. You can always catch the metro from Mundet station and... More

We had not ate since earlier that morning, unfortunately we were told there was no food establishments near by so the woman on the desk was able to call for a pizza delivery for us as we were unable to speak spanish, she was very helpful.

We stayed 5 days in Barcelona and the hotel worked great for us. Good buffet breakfast is inclusive into the price, which is an advantage. Hotel is located in quite outskirt area of the city which is good connected to the center of the Barcelona by the green Metro line. It takes 15-20 minutes by metro to get to the... More
