“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

From check in to check out this place was exceptional. We were afforded an early check in due to availability and the staff were obliging in every way. The rooms were modern, minimalistic and clean. The location was close to many major attractions, and the outdoor terrace was perfect for a late afternoon quiet drink / read. I would definitely stay again.

When you think of a hostal you picture a old spanish style guest house, with shared bathroom, sometimes shared rooms.....Forget it all. This place will blow your mind!! A completely renewed flat with very comfortable facilities from bed to bathroom, also common spaces and an amazing outside green patio overlooking a main street. ëxcellent for spending afternoons or eveningswith a bottle of spanish wine!
The service is passionately efficient, and tourisc knowledgeable, every question was answered with every detail of the city!!
we had breakfast too one day, and were amazed by the freshness of the fruits, cakes, and scrumbled eggs!
We will definetely stay here again when we come back to Barcelona!
We still have to come back to try their sushi which we didn´t have time enough, but heard great things about it!

My family - 6 of us stayed at Hostal Khronos twice this May 2012 as part of our Cruise vacation. The place was perfect. Rooms had high ceiling, private bathroom per room with towles, bath mats, bath gel amenities and a hairdryer. Some rooms had a nice little balcony overlooking the street. Beds were nice and firm. Lots of little stores nearby to shop for grocery, gelato, coffee. Very clean and decent, no frills like a 5 star hotel, BUT VERY tastefully done. The place had good "energy". Perfect location, not too busy a street and very touristy. Quite accessible to Passeig de Gracia and its shops plus also close to the hop on hop off tourist bus for the city. Wonderful cafe below the building that served lovely jamon with croissant and coffee for breakfast and a super yummy cream puff.
Alex, Carlos, and Eduardo....you guys made us feel so at home. From beggining to end, your service to us was superb. We love you! Oh... and from the bottom of my heart....thanks for the birthday surprise cake and champagne! I already recommended you guys to a friend for his October trip. Given a chance to go to Barcelona again....no doubt...hostal khronos it will be!

Room Tip: All rooms are great. Try to avoid room 9 as it has a small window only.

We stayed at this little Hostal in great location where you can walk to Las Ramblas, Sagrada Familia and the high end shops are a couple of blocks away.
We were in Rm 5 which faced the street and was very noisy despite assurances to the contrary! We could clearly hear guests in rooms on either side of us and as the reception was very close constant phone ringing and guests coming and going was disturbing especially as it was after midnight. Our towels were not changed during our stay and they were old and thin . Not even a glass in the room we had to ask for same. I think some basic items such as room safe and drinking glasses would improve the hostal Overall ok.

Located in the Example district you have to be prepared to consult a map and find your wat about the city - this is actually very easy t do and we walked to most places and used the metro/
The hostal is delightfully clean and fresh, and very nice place to stay. It doesn't include frills, like a kettle, bath robe and your own hairdryer, but this is what we were expecting and you can ask for a hairdryer that they have a t reception.
Staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke good English. We had breakfast there one morning on the terrace, basic but nice, with some lovely chocolates. There are a lot of places near by to get a more interesting breakfast.
The area feels safe and isn't very touristy, there are some financial and legal buildings around and a few nice places to eat. Its not far to wander to more built up areas. We found a supermarket nearby to pick up snacks too.
Shower was ok too, we had a room with one double and one single ned. Some of the rooms had a great little balcony too.

For the price you pay and for how well kept this little place is, it really is worth every penny and I would definitely stay here again/ Its definitely a lot better than your average hostel, it is more a simple no frills hotel

I really like the hostal's proximity within the city center. It's in the beautiful l'exaimple district. Close to Passig de Gracia , with it's high end shops and very easy walk to Casa Mila, Sagrada Familia. You can walk to Las Ramblas, as we did everyday, to walk off the tapas we ate around the restaurants around the Hostal. La muscleria restaurant is great! If you like mussels! Metro Diagonal and Passig. De Gracia is a few minutes walk away!
The staff are SUPERB, very friendly, very accommodating. I am writing this review now, since i really think the staff really deserve my thanks!!!! Thank you for laundering our clothes after circling around the area looking for a laundrymats open on a Saturday before Easter. The hostal was kind enough to do this for us. I arrived after a going out to the beach in awe that my dirty clothes were laundered and even folded on top of my clean, freshly made bed! What a wonderful service!!!!!
I will definitely stay here again. We had room 3 with a grand balcony adjacent to the reception. I had no problems with noise, except the traffic on the street, but not annoying . If you're a very light sleeper, then ask for a room at the back or put your ear plugs on. Beds are really comfortable, room cleaned every day, towels changed, what else can you asked for? It might be a boutique hostal but with a service of a five star hotel!

We'v stayed in this hotel during 3 nights. The location is great, near the metro station, nice streets, restaurants, Sagrada Familia, etc. The room is nice and spacious enough, it's also clean and we've got every day fresh towels. If you are a difficult sleeper, I would suggest to take a room on the other side of the hotel, we had a room on the street side and it was quite noisy, but it didn't bother us. We've hadn't had breakfast as we've found it quite expensive, we had breakfast in the bakeries around the hotel.
