“AWESOME HOSTEL!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

I recently stay at Somino for 4 nights and I can say, by far the best hostel I've stayed at.

Location is stupid awesome, the people are friendly, the place is super clean (coming from one that's OCD clean), the bed was comfy and room 9 is super sunny! As a bonus, the room has external shutters, perfect for the morning after a big night.

I felt I was getting the better end of the stick, given how affordable that place was and what I was getting.

Cannot recommended enough!

Ps, book for room 9!

If you have any further questions, feel free to email me (jimmygatsos@gmail.com).

Somnio is a hostel with a a great location and very friendly staff who are travelers on their own. The front desk people were very helpful with tips and advice on my stay in Barcelona and make you feel very welcome.

This place is such good value regarding location and rooms for Barcelona. Showers and mattrasses are outstanding. Most remarkable, though, is the friendly and helpfull staff. They really go out of their way to make you feel at home and keep you informed about the city.

Room Tip: Appearantly all rooms without private bathrooms at least have a sink, just FYI, in case thats one of...

Spent 2 nights in male dorm which was clean and pleasant. Beds are comfy, there are lockers with key provided. Shared bathrooms were cleaned everyday.
It would have been nice that the window had a curtain or some kind of shutter as we get woken up when the sun rises from 6:30 AM !

We found hotel prices in Barcelona to be expensive and so were on the lookout for a budget hotel but not a dive, Somnio Hotel fitted the bill.

We paid €78 for a double shared bathroom, the room was very basic but clean, the bathroom shared with about four other rooms on our side was also very clean.

The location is very good, a short walk from the last stop on the bus line from the airport and also only 5-10 minutes from the top of La Rambla. The reception is open 24hours which we needed as our flight got in close to midnight.

For Flamenco dancing we recommend Tarantinos off La Rambla, an intimate venue with a show for €10 for half an hour and for Tapas we recommend Tapeo, they have an English menu, all tapas are cooked fresh to order and were delicious.

Amazing location! right in the center of the city - 2 minute walk from Plaza Catalonia.
We walked all over the city and had a great time!
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
We stayed in a very clean although small room(Double private ensuit) and it didn't had much in it except a comfortable bed, clean towels and bathroom(no shampoo & soap) - but thats kinda all you need.
Great value for money!
We recommend!

Room Tip: Double Ensuit private was excellent!
