“Clean budget accommodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

In town for a music festival so we really didn't need to spend lots of money on accommodation. We were looking for somewhere to get a decent sleep as the sun came up, which was clean and close to the metro station. Hostal Canigo ticked all the boxes - slept like a log and could freshen up to start all over again.

Some of the other reviews mention that it is not close to the city centre which is a little unfair - 15 minutes and you can be anywhere is town for a few Euros. Buy a day card and you can move around really quickly. There is also a taxi rank nearby which seemed to be staffed 24/7. The area looked to be really safe.

On the downside the wifi was a touch patchy. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't.

Room Tip: I believe the lower floors have better wifi - the higher you go the less well connected you could be...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Affordable hostel, 50 euro per night for a double room with private bathroom. Clean and fresh. Friendly staff but does not talk very good English. The room had what you need for a weekend in a big city. Okay bed and good bathroom. The downside was the location. A bit far from the city center. 6 metro stops away from the Passeig de Gracia but the hostel is near the station Guinardo Hospital de Sant Pau.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

As other reviewers have indicated, this hotel is located in a safe neighborhood near several metro stops, including a line that goes directly to the beach. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, although not always at the desk, as some reviewers have mentioned. We had elevator access, A/C with in-room controls, free wifi, and a TV.

nice, clean and comfortable room. close to the metro station and easy to find. free internet. reception is not open all day so be patient if you have to wait. it's a bit far from the center but the metro station is close and you can easily get wherever you want. bring your own hairdryer if you need it. I'd stay there again.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Good location, 5 minutes to the metro, 20 minutes to Gaudi Park. Clean and comfortable room, look nice, in spite of small room and hotel.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a few nights during our University summer vacation. It was PERFECT for us! Inexpensive, clean, quiet and very close to the subway line! I would definitely stay there if I visited Barcelona again!
