“A cozy hidden gem.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

This was the first lodge of our Spain trip, and did not disappoint us. When you book this place. they will send you an e-mail with directions and other informations about the property. Getting there from BCN is very easy since there's a direct train, but from the station you kinda need a printout of a map to find it. We got lost, and had to ask locals (LOL)

When you check-in the frontdesk staff gives great recommendations and tips about nearby attractions and eateries. Unless specified, all bath and toilet rooms are shared, like a college dorm. We booked a triple with a nice balcony but the room is small, barely enough space for one person to walk. But then, all rooms in Spain are small, so didn't bother us too much. The property is located so perfectly, and it only takes 5-6 minutes to Casa Batllo. All of us are girl, but we felt safe to walk late at night.

Booked this twin room for our 60 year old mothers, based on the photos provided. They were asked to pay on arrival without seeing the room, which they thought was odd but went along with. When they got to the room it was bunk beds with less than 1m space on the side. Not what you'd expect when paying that kind of price and not representative of twin rooms picture, beware you don't get this room!

Hola Jenken, lo siento mucho por lo ocurrido en tu estancia con nosotros. El problema fue que vosotras habias reservado una habitación Twin. Como se ve en las fotos es la única habitacion que tiene Literas(bank bed).
Nosotros nunca preguntamos la edad de los clientes por respeto, pero de haber sabido que tenian 60 años hubieramos intentado ponerlas en una habitación mas amplia. Hemos intentado en ese momento cambiarlas a otra habitación pero estabamos completos.
Lo siento mucho una vez más y espero poder recibirlas nuevamente aqui en Casa Consell.
Si regresan las pondremos en nuestra mejor habitacion y les regalaremos una noche gratis!!!!!

We recently stayed at this great guest house/hostel in the centre of Barcelona after not having stayed in a hostel for over 20 years. It was a clean and welcoming oasis in a fantastic location. The rooms were well furnished and very clean and the kitchen lounge area was very pleasant. Breakfast was a casual but great addition to our stay and was liovely taken on the terrace. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly even down to giving us an extra breakfast on our arrival. A definite find and worthy of all the good reviews

Casa Consell was a good hostel for a short stay. It was in a great location and very close to the metro. The beach is only three metro stops away. The hostel was clean and served a good breakfast each morning. The only downside was no air conditioning in the rooms, so in the August heat the rooms were really warm. Otherwise great stay. The staff was very friendly.

Me and two friends stayed 4 nights in this amazing and homely hostel.

The staff were extremely kind, funny and welcoming. The breakfast was an all you can eat continental spread which was enjoyed on the terrace.

The location was absolutely perfect. We didn't spend a single penny on transport because it was so close to everything and the value of the rooms are great.

Will definitely stay here next time I come to Barcelona.

Thank you so much to the amazing staff at Casa Consell & I will most definitely see you soon.

Casa Consell is a great little guest house in the heart of Barcelona. Rooms are compact with share bathroom facilities. The communal kitchen provides free breakfast each morning, and opens out to a lovely outdoor patio area. Free computers are provided, and this family run guest house provides excellent service.

The only negative would be that there is no air conditioning, and ceiling fans did not help to cool down the hot summer nights.
