“Nice hotel in a perfect location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

+ Hotel is located in a perfect area. Gothic Quarter, Plaza Catalonia, and La Ramblas is just 10 minutes on foot. Metro station is also next to the hotel.
Rooms are very clean and the towers are changed every day.
Even breakfast is not offered, there is a small kitchen where you can take your breakfast. Cappuccino, tea, orange juice, cakes & biscuits are served for breakfast free of charge. There is an automatic machine with snacks and drinks.
Free wi-fi is available and also 3 laptops for common use.
Hairdryer is available upon request.
Recommended ! ! !

- Small dark rooms. Very noisy. It will be helpful if you have earplugs with you.

Room Tip: Inside rooms are quieter.

The hostal is nice, clean and the rooms even if they are small they are really pretty. It s the perfect solution if you are travelling with a low budget (it costs something less than 40 euros fro a double!). A little breakfast is included. Even if a little noisy at night, it has a perfect location, you can reach the downtown, the gotic barrio and gaudi's houses by walking!

Great hostel with a very comfortable position: near metro stop and all services that you need (bus stop, bar, pharmacy, restaurants..).
Plaça catalunya is only 5 min by foot and you can reach every zone of Barcellona.
The hostel is really clean and cozy. The best accomodation I've found in Barcellona in the last 3 years.
The rooms are a little small, but really nice. The washbasin and the shower are in room (the shower is separated by a transparent glass). So if you don't have a lot of confidence with your roommate or you need some privacy while you take a shower, this can be a problem (we found that a towel for curtain is a good solution).
The towels were changed every day (unbelievable for an hostel) and there was free candy in the hallway. Only bad thing is that you could hear the metro under the hostel, but I didn't find it too annoying.
Overall we loved this hostel, especially for the kitchen with tea, biscuits and nespresso coffè.
I absolutely recommend this accomodation if you visit Barcellona in a few days, the hostel is awsome and the staff is really kind to advice your stay in this great city.

The location is convenient as it is within walking distance to the Gothic Quarter, Plaza Catalonia, and La Ramblas. But the facilities is just a very basic room.All the rooms are located at first floor just right above street level. Breakfast is just some bread and biscuits. There is central kitchen for breakfast. For expresso you have to buy at the indoor vending machine. The shower door couldn't close properly so the room got wet, and there is no place to hang your towel in the shower room. You can get better rooms and facilities for the same price.

We stayed for a week at Hostal Q and found the location of the hostel perfect. The price was not bad either :) It was a clean and friendly place. We got a room for disabled people without a window so the good side was that the bathroom was bigger I guess but we could not get any sunlight into the room. In the end this did not matter that much, we just slept here and were out all days.

One big minus is that we could hear every word of some other guests who were talking in some other room. It felt like they would have been in the same room with us.

Room has no proper ceiling, just a black piece of material half covering the industrial wiring etc. Room also has no window, but we did ask for a quiet room, so perhaps this is the quietest room available. Noise from people opening and closing doors echoes, and when neighbouring people are in their rooms you can hear every word. The location is great, as you can walk to everything. However, being on top of the subway means that the building rumbles every time a train passes through! Although hostel q is clean and tidy, I wouldn't stay here again, nor recommend it as I think sleep is important!

Room Tip: Choose elsewhere!

PROS: great value for money, friendly staff and excellent location. the rooms are spacious for being a guest house. everything is modern and clean. free wi-fi. friendly staff and location is right by the metro and walking distance to many attractions. most recommended! they also have vending machines with drinks, snacks and toiletries.

CONS: the bathrooms in some room are planned out strangely: in some cases the sink is in the main room. and the showers are semi transparent. not really a problem though.
