They say the cities bathed by the Mediterranean exude warmth and tranquillity down to their every corner. At The Moods Catedral, we’ve aimed to transmit the lightness and simplicity of this landscape into our hostel in the centre of Barcelona, a unique and cosy urban refuge where you will feel at home in part for the conservation of the local architecture, the use of artisanal materials, typical of Spain, and a décor that is both comfortable and relaxed.

I picked an internal room after some of the reviews suggested that balcony rooms ( which overlook the main road ) could be noisy . What i didnt realise was that the " courtyard " room actually fronted on to a TINY light well , no window in the bedroom itself and a tiny window of less tham 1m2 in the shower area .This gave the feeling of a very claustrophobic cell , little if no natural light and a bit of a bunker feeling .I didn't really like it at all . The room itself was bright enough with the lighting on and very clean .Location was great . We found a car park 10 mins away ( not the nearest ) where all day parking cost 28 euro. No breakfast available on site but options within a 5 minute walk . Three flights of stairs up to the accommodation , not sure where the alternative fire escape route would be , it didnt seem to be signposted .

The Moods Cathedral was a fine place to stay for a few nights. It was more hostel than hotel, which we didn't realize from our online research. Pros: - Awesome location -- the gothic quarter was very central to most of our plans and the city's best offerings. It has some good restaurants and lots of great attractions nearby - Very clean Cons: - The water pressure quickly decreased to the point of shutting itself off during many showers after just a couple of minutes of use. - No luggage stand or main table to put things, only tiny nightstands - Only two plugs in the whole room - The room was uncomfortably warm. Opening the windows cooled down the room, but traffic blares so loudly that you don't want to leave them open long. - Room was very small - No safe or refrigerator Overall, I wouldn't stay here again. I'd rather pay just a bit more for more comfort and amenities.

Our room was a balcony room that faced the square and the Barcelona cathedral. Room was spacious and clean, and we enjoyed sitting outside in the early morning on the balcony. When the doors to the balcony are closed - we couldn't hear much outside noise. The location is perfect. Short walk to Placa de Catalunya or to the water. Public transport is also very close by.

The moods is in a great location close the the metro stations and walking distance from everything else, some fantastic restaurants near by. We stayed in room 16, with a lovely view. If your a light sleeper this place isn’t for you. There is residential accommodation above and from early morning we could hear little footsteps and toys being played with. So a lie in when we had a late flight home wasn’t achieved. You can hear noise from the traffic too. It’s clean, friendly helpful staff and someone is on reception 24hours a day. I’d stay in this area and I would stay here if there was a guarantee of peace.
