Rooms are very small and not much room to move around when two people are in the room. Staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay! Small pool on the roof which was a bonus but it t does get busy.

This hostal is nice and clean, the staff friendly and it is situated in the center of Barcelona. The rooms and bath extreamely small. Recommendable for young backpackers, not families. The pool on the roof is a nice hang out place for meeting other travellers.

The dormitory like rooms, were small but extremely efficient in design and clean. Beds were comfortable and air conditioning was good and quiet. We made use of the roof top pool and shared kitchen for our floor. We could hear traffic and sirens, but they did not disturb Us. Malfunctioning outlets made keeping devices charged a little challenging, but free... More

Spent 5 days exploring Barcelona and stayed here with my best friend. Ensuite with shower, air conditioning, rooftop pool, TV and free Wi-Fi! Couldn't have asked for more. Definitely a good place to sleep, you wouldn't spend your day in the hotel unless you were having a pool day on the roof but very recommended if your looking for something... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
