The hostel was above standard, great locate everything required within walking distance. Staff very friendly and clean, will definitely stay again when revisiting Spain. For easy and convenience I recommend the sighting bus, you can jump and and off at different locations you can find this around the corner near the square.

Took my grand daughter for her 17th birthday . We searched for a place in the centre of Barcelona and also where we could have a three bedded room. What a find. Right in the centre close to the Metro and with plenty of small places locally to eat. The ladies on reception were very helpful and friendly. The hostal...

Nice place with comfy rooms. Great staff! I was a little fearful with our room being so close to reception, but slept well both nights. The bathroom was just a few steps away and very comfortable. The location near Barcelona Cathedral and the water was perfect.

The hostel was very cozy, clean and neat. It has an excellent location in a walking distance of La Rambla and other top attractions. We felt welcome from the very first minutes. The staff was very helpful. It was easy to catch an early flight, since the staff ordered a taxi for us. We would love to book Hostal Fontanella...

We found Hostal Fontanella by randomly picking one of the many Hotels and Hostals in Barcelona. We picked it on price, location, and reviews. We ended our cruise,in Barcelona and wanted to see the city before flying home early the next morning. It ended up being right in the middle of everything we did that day. I totally recommend it....

Loved this place, great price for central Barcelona. Was a little confused when booking a 'Four person room with shower' as I thought this also included a toilet. This didn't really matter however as the toilet was very close by, kept very clean and it felt like we were the only people using it anyway. Such a well kept, homely...

Stayed for three nights, the Hostal is in a Great location and good value for money. Shared bathroom which was opposite room, our room was lovely and very clean. Small balcony overlooking main road, noisy at times but expected because of central Location. Staff friendly and helpful. Would stay here again :)

Very close to Plaza catalunya, and to the rambla. I used a private room and the size was very nice with an acceptable bathroom. They don't have a great attention on the front desk, but we are Spanish speakers and been in Barcelona previously, so it wasn't an issue.

I booked this hostel for a night in September 2016, as I was flying into the city late in the evening, and wanted somewhere pretty central. This hotel/hostel was the cheapest I could find in the city centre, and it didn't disappoint. It is a short 3 minute walk from Placa Catalunya, where the airport bus-Aerobus drops you off, and...

Great location, clean room, friendly staff. The rooms aren't sound proof, so some noise from the other guests and the door bell could be heard. Not a big issue for us though. We wouldn't hesitate looking for an available room here next time we visit Barcelona.
