Diagonal Home is placed in the heart of Barcelona. -> In 5 walking minutes you are at La Rambla. Yet it isn't expensive at all. You can park your car cheaply (15€/24h) in a parking house close to the hostel. If you have any issues Ahmed (the owner) will do nearly everything to help you. He is one of the...

We stayed here for one night, as the apartment we had booked for the whole length of our stay wasn't available on our first night. It was by far the cheapest room we could find (35€ for two), and we knew from the reviews here that we should keep our expectations very low. The good: Ahmed (the owner) was very...

The apartment is not the one showed in the pictures on Booking. The bed sheets were broken and dirty.The double bed room has a tiny bed (for two children), it is humid with a strong mouldy smell. Moreover you do not have space for your luggages or only for changing. In this room you have a sort of wardrobe but...

Stayed in a room of 5, which was hardly fit to sleep in. It was on the 5th floor of a very busy road. Dodgy lift. Had a small room without bins and offensively bad artwork, with a disgustingly dirty floor. Did not want to walk around bare foot. Sheets seemed very old, and I got bitten alot. Door seemed...

I stayed at this hostel last year. It was nothing fancy but it was super cheap so I didn't expect much anyways. It's fine for a cheap place to sleep if you are on a budget. It's accessible via public transportation, but a bit of a walk if you are carrying luggage. It's close to grocery stores and some shopping,...

Stay well away! Having travelled around Europe staying in basic hostels twice before I can safely say this one was by far the worst. Staying in the private double room I found the walls were filthy, electrical fittings exposed, and the room only part cleaned (I found earrings left over from a previous tenant). I made the stupid mistake of...
