We stayed in one of the private rooms in this hotel/hostel. The room was everything that we needed. It's smaller than you're use to (if you're from Canada/USA) but your stuff fits well. We were in the first room when you entered the hostel (not sure if there were room numbers associated with them or not). Everything was clean and... More

Dear Baltzer, That was probably the most detailed comment I've ever seen. This kind of comments help us A LOT! We try to provide all the information above but usually people won't read the property comments, since they prefer to rely on other guests experience (what's for the best) and I'm sure that anybody who reads your comment will find...

It's an old part of town, so expect to walk up a LOT of stairs with your bags, and don't expect sound proofing. However, the staff was very friendly and helpful; the location was wonderful for sightseeing, accessible by transit, and close to the port. The price is a huge selling point, and our room was perfectly charming. We only... More

Thank you so much for your feedback! We know that the building has limitations but we like to think that the value of a historical building compensates them. Of course, the stairs are not suitable for all targets but as long as your're in good shape, we'd be really happy to welcome you. Please, come back whenever you want! More

The eight of us stayed here for four days. The service we had was very good, the receptionist was really helpful in terms of giving information. The bed was very comfortable, the toilets were clean and it was a very comfortable stay. It is very nearby La Rambla which is the main street of Barcelona. However, the climb to the... More

Excellent location, lovely staff (rapid replies to our queries), clean, and cheap..... However you can hear everything. Make sure you pack ear-plugs! Within walking distance of the Metro, and great shops and cafes.

Dear Catherine, Thanks a lot for your feedback! We also provide earplugs from the reception (just asking for them) cause we know that sometimes, if you have a light sleep, noise can be a trouble in this kind of ancient buildings with a lot of echo. Sorry about that and hope the rest of your experience was positive! See you... More

Last year I stayed a couple of days at MariLuz. We were about the only guests and the place was really clean: every time I went to the bathroom, the floor still was a bit wet as they had just cleaned it. Also the staff was really friendly. The place is located in Barrio Gótico, very close to the Plaza... More

Thank you very much for your feedback! Indeed, we don't recommend our establishment for people with mobility issues or seniors. Since our building is considered historical heritage we can't instal an elevator indeed... Hope we'll see you back soon More

The location of this hostel is right at the center and is just a 5 to 10 minute walk to La Rambla. We had to climb up three flights of stairs to get to the hostel but upon reaching the place, we were welcomed with cool air conditioned place plus a friendly face. The receptionist was so helpful as she... More

Overall just a really good hostel. Room, bathroom and kitchen were spotless... Lovely showers, beds are so comfy and individual aircon unit for each room so you can control the temp, which is a massive bonus! Would definitely stay there again!

This place was great. Remember you need to share a bathroom and kitchen. So don't complain about that.. Also, expect it to be more like a hostel experience. So expect younger people to be staying there. Bathrooms were always kept very clean!!! Which was great. Room was good size. Clean. And our room (twin room) had it's own basin. So... More

It's a simple and clean and resty hostel in the Gothic quarter. It is on the fourth floor with no elevator, but there's a few minutes walking from the Rambla, Catalunya and the Cathedral Barcelona. Fair accomodation for your money.
