The location it isn`t bad. The metro station is close. If you travel by plane i would recommend take the bus 46... More

As a 50 y/o man traveling in Europe for the first time I wanted to experience a few hostels. After reading reviews I settled on HelloBCN Hostel. It turns out it was a good choice. The location was near a lot of restaurants, two blocks from the metro and 3-4 blocks to the beach. The area was very safe both... More

Good value for money at this hostel. I went with 2 friends for 3 nights. A great opportunity to meet other travellers aged between 19 and 25. The room beds are reasonable and the shared bathrooms of an acceptable standard. WiFi worked interchangeably for me, but seemed to be problematic for my friends with iPhones. Breakfast is included in the... More

This is a great hostel, but it has one issue from it being a perfect experience, the good things about this this is that the staff are great, the hostel is clean, close to supermarkets, not far from the beach, decent atmosphere, plug sockets next to beds. good facilities, free breakfast. But no WiFi in rooms, WiFi was slow sometimes.... More

I wouldn't exactly say am an intrepid and rugged explorer, however, I have been off the beaten track. Therefore, I would class myself as knowing what a true hostel is, and what this is. When I think of a hostel, it is close knit and personal. There is a high degree mixing and social interaction. This place was more like... More

This is probably the best and the cheap place to be in barcelona if we know that spending time outside the house is more important. A nice breakfast, amazing service, Wi-Fi, Lockers, nice people to guide you and other things that you can expect. Simply the best hostel.

I've been to my share of hostels. None of them have been as clean and feel as safe as this one. Mind you, I'm in my 30s and have become much more discriminatory with choices of hostels. They gave everyone a digital watch-like device to open the door and the lockers. The lockers were sturdy and a good size. We... More

It is a great place if you are a backpacker. We visited in the weekend for 2 nights. The guy in the reception is exceptionally good host I would say, he will make you comfortable just by talking to you and he will explain you all the places in Map which was really helpful and you wouldn't complain about soap...

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

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.
