The Hostel is in a quieter Area of Barcelona. But everything is in walking distance. I stayed in a 4 Person Room. It was clean but not too big. Breakfast gets the job done but nothing special. Overall a good value Hostel!

I originally booked this hotel because of the great reviews that I had read and of course the free breakfast was a bonus. I stayed here for 4 days and overall had a great experience. The staff was friendly and spoke great english. The breakfast had a bit to be desired, but if you enjoy bread and jam then you're... More

My only regrets is that the bedsheets where nt very clean and the wifi just work about 5 minutes a day. But the good points is the breakfast even if it is a little early when you go out to enjoy the night life in barcelona. The location is perfect the hostel is very nice and the staff is very... More

It was our first time staying in a hostel and we absolutely had an awesome experience and we want to go back to Barcelona (what a city!!) and stay here again and again. Everyone was so friendly and we meet so much people from all over the world. It was awesome!

Really enjoyed my time at this Hostel, great people, nice staff and ideal facilities. Great morning breakfast, good value for your location and close to most things you'd need (and if not you're just next to the subway station Paral.lel!). The kitchen is great and well-equipped for those wanting to cook meals or have a quick snack, like the public... More

This hostel was fine for a few days. The rooms felt a little small and old but were comfortable enough. The bathrooms were kept relatively clean. The hostel was an interesting security system with wristwatches that act as your key. The staff were hit and miss - some were very friendly and others just seemed like they were doing their... More

Excellent location for this hostel ... went with a few friends, and the accommodation was above average - good use of technology to make sure drunk people got home, while protecting personal belongings with a wrist-band key. Helpful front-desk staff, decent amenities in the kitchen, everything was very clean, and good value for money. Beds were a little too creaky,... More

A great youth hotel with a large meeting room where we can do many activities. Rooms were clean so were the showers. Not far from many tourists attractions, located on a calm street and close to a subway station. It's a great location for an hotel. The only negative thing was that conditionning air was controled by the receptionnist. Otherwise... More

I visited Barcelona two times and stayed here both times. The rooms were very clean as well as the bathrooms. (I always suggest wearing flip flops in Public Showers). The staff were very helpful and we loved the Bike Tour they offered. Will be back!

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
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.
