The hostel is ok, not outstanding. The location is good, close to the underground. The room is small but acceptable. For the room and amenities the price is not the best... Will definitely return to Barcelona for the 3rd, 4th, 10th, 50th time but probably not to this one.

I was pleasantly surprised at quality of this hotel in the centre of Barcelona for the price I paid. The rooms are clean, modern and functional with private bathroom. There are common kitchens and lounges on each floor and a café on the ground floor. You just need a keycard to access the building 24/7. It's just on Av. Parallel,... More

Nice hotel with small room ( for us big enough, just for overnigt sleeping). Perfect location. Terrace and pool on the roof was great. Kitchen and fridge on the floor was also useful. Staff very friedly. For money I paid was great. For young travelers and not for fancy people :-)

Desent location on Av. de Parellel, 5 minutes walk from "Tickets", between Raval and Poble Sec. The room is extremely basic. Not even a pen and a pad, but worst of all was this pronounced earthy smell that indicated insufficient ventilation. I kept the window open but the smell was there all the time. Sun terrace is ok.

Small rooms but in general new property and very good location 3 minutes walk form metro station. Poor breakfast (avoid to include). Friendly staff. A little noisy area due to road works. Good safety due to check control before entering the lift.

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
