I stayed here for a couple of nights in December 2015. The guy at reception was very friendly and helpful and down to earth and quite funny! The room was large and had wifi and a large wardrobe for putting your stuff in. The showers were clean. The interior of the building looks amazing! It is also centrally located, next... More

Barcelona 4 Fun was located right in the heart of Barcelona. It was located a 5-10 minute walk to the city center, around an 8 minute walk to Las Ramblas, and a 15 minute walk to Playa de la Barceloneta. You have to walk up around 4-5 flights a stairs to get to the hostel, but the building is quite... More

I stayed in this hostel for two nights in a double room with a shared bathroom. Despite generally good service and a good location, staying at this hostel could not have been a worse experience. Let me explain. After the first night, I noticed I had a small rash on my neck. It grew throughout the day and I discovered... More

There's so many things wrong with the place! STAY AWAY!!! Firstly the owner is the rudest person I have ever met! Shouted at nearly everyone he spoke to and no inclination to be helpfully/polite in any way! They only accept cash (not visa as described on website). The apartments are not in the main building (with the grand looking entrance... More

I was fine. Clean rooms and helpful staff. Excellent location: close to the Barceloneta beach (15 minutes walk), the Rambla and the metro line (5 min). Ideal for groups of friends and young couples who do not have much expectation. Very good quality / price ratio.

...as I stayed in the Gotika area. So I only 10mins walk away from Plaza Catalunya, 5mins from La Rambla, 2 mins from La Playa. When you book, make sure you have what you have asked for. Also the staff was friendly, and they are genuinely helpful.

You want something that's really cheap and at a great location! Do not take your shoes off while in the room, bring Raid to kill the roaches (woke up to a huge one running accross the table near me) This was our first AND LAST hostel experience. Never again. From now on we are willing to pay for something that... More

The pictures shown about Barcelona 4 Fun have been carefully chosen and prepared. The actual hotel and rooms are nothing near the what you see. The rooms was barely cleaned and in a bad state. I would not recommend.

The address where they claim you're gonna be staying at is FALSE!! The reception is near the beach, but the actual apartments are several blocks away, in a little side street. We were really surprised and kind if suspicious when the guy at reception, after taking our payment, grabbed our suitcases and proceeded to walk us through several narrow streets... More

My friend and I stayed here for two nights and found its perfectly adequate. We paid for a twin private room, and it was exactly what I expected from a European hostel. Two clean beds, a lamp, a wardrobe - what more do you need !? The bathrooms were clean every time we used them, as was the kitchen. Reception... More
