This was our first time staying in Barcelona and our first time staying in a hostel. Me and my friend (two young females from England), stayed here for a week and I have to say we had an amazing time. We got to the hostel extremely easily and were welcomed warmly, given all the info we asked for before being... More

I stayed for two nights at Mapamundo with my sister and mother in June 2016. Jandro was very communicative before our arrival and waiting at the hostel when we arrived. He was very friendly and offered us tea, coffee and water as soon as we were in the door and gave us a thorough orientation of the city with a... More

I stayed at Mapamundo for 3 nights with a friend. The room was big, the environment was nice, the staff was amazing, the location was perfect and I felt safe there. The surroundings were a bit loud due to the (great) night life.

I booked a triple room at Mapamundo for a weekend in the city with friends, to explore the area and watch FC Barcelona play. Jandro (presumably the owner) emailed us a few days before we were due to arrive with helpful navigation and arrival instructions; it is important to provide the hostel with an approximate ETA as there is no...

We stayed at Mapamundo for 2 nights over the Easter weekend in 2016. I'm not overly experienced with hostels so I wasn't sure what to expect cleanliness wise. However, I can say that it was very clean. The staff clearly look after the place. We were treated but Jandro who talked us through a map of Barcelona and gave us... More

It's a nice apartment that was converted into an accommodation for travellers. We pretty much had the whole place to ourselves (in October) most of the time...except for the last day when there was quite a queue for the shower (there's only one) and everyone was getting ready to go out. Love the location - bustling and not too far... More

The staff was very friendly. Upon arrival Jandro sat down with us and told us all about the city and the nice places, how to get there etc. The hostel is very conveniently located, right in the city centre. A definite must if you are staying here, is having dinner at Sensi Gourmet Tapas (about 15 metres to your right... More

Great hostel at a great price! As three lads on tour (Lads lads lads!) we wanted somewhere near the night life and that is exactly what we got. Yes it is quite a challenge to find initially and the street can be noisy but that is the trade off for an excellent location. Rooms are comfortable and there is plenty... More

Now when i say hard to find, it is a guesthouse so there is no signage and the small street its located on is not accessible by vehicle. We got severely lost, DO NOT USE google maps to locate, the address/location they give is wrong! Be sure to contact them before you arrive as they will give you proper/more detailed... More

They have bedbugs infection. We won't even know about it if not because I am allergic to the bites because typically the bug bites only show up after a few days after the actual bites. It's the worst nightmare. The only good thing is that the owner return my money when I complained about the bugs on the first night.... More
