After being discouraged of a few Airbnb appartment reviews (no hot water, moisture in old houses, etc.) we opted for Hostal Sans. Very satisfied with our decision. Room was simple but clean, sheets or towels changed several times during our 5 days stay (had to request finally to not change them :-) ). Bathroom nice. 100m from metro station. Only... More

It is a great choice for people looking for a place to crush at night - clean, private bathroom, fresh towels daily, elevator, common kitchen with all the basics you need. The staff was great, very friendly. The location - amazing - close to train station, metro and bus station. Basically, from that starting point you can easily reach anything... More

We've just returned home after a short trip to Barcelona and stayed for three nights in this hostel! Can't fault the cleanliness or location as it was perfect and the staff were nice enough! However, I wouldn't have stayed any longer than we did because the noise was ridiculous which isn't really a fault of the hostel but more of... More

The hotel is ideally situated just a few meters from a subway stop and just 5 min walking from the main train station Barcelona Sants. The staff is very polite and friendly, the room was comfortable - just little bit small but as for 1 night it was not a big deal. The bathroom was modern and comfortable. Everything was... More

As i write this, i can hear another 'guest' shouting at his room mate as he did the previous night. So many tiny rooms and so little privacy! Thank God I have earplugs! If you choose to share a bathroom you will be sharing with over 10 others! That said there is a sink with soap in your 'rabbit hutch'... More

I was staying here from 23.08.16 untill 25.08.16 and visited Barcelona as a solo travel. I was checked in a single room on the 4th of a floor. It was very narrow room and very narrow bathroom. There was one window with a view on a wall; if you would like to look to up you can see a not... More

Hostal Sans is probably due a major refurbishment, but the place works well. It was full up but was staffed to cope. The security were reassuring and friendly. The cleaners were friendly courteous and effective. The air-conditioning worked. Yes the room was small with no view, and the beds were basic, but we expected that. The location - just five... More

Picked this hotel from reviews as we were arriving 11pm and off from Barcelona at 8 am the next day, so was just for a sleep. Well that did not really happen. Reception is newish but do not speak any English, which makes it hard, on to the 1st floor room, which was small, dingy and whilst we had private... More

The hotel were very helpful in holding my reservation despite an issue involving a 3rd party agent. Thanks Hostal Sans. You could have resold the booking but honoured the booking even when you were very busy. The room was simple, clean and comfortable. Excellent wireless internet on each level.
