Hostal Residencia Rembrandt
Ranked #619 of 736 Specialty Lodging in Barcelona
Reviewed June 8, 2011

Stayed four nighst at this hostal and couldn't have asked for a better location. Facilities are basic but rooms are clean and tidy. Staff are helpful and efficient. Rooms are affected by the noise from the streets especially rubbish trucks but if you are only being there for a few days then the noise is well worth putting up with. Thanks to the staff we had a wonderful stay. From the ladies in Room #2.

Great staff, really helpful. The hostel is in possibly the best location I could imagine in the city, right at the heart of everything. It is very basic but clean. The place knows what it is. I would stay there again.

I had to ask the person in the counter to clean the shared bathroom. How awful and disgusting. Don't stay here, find another place!

My 18 year old and I stayed at this hostel and were very pleased with its location right off of La Rambla. The experience was made even better because the proprieter, KAMAL, went above and beyond to help. We had left all our souvenirs behind and called Kamal in desperation asking if he would send them back. He did AND he emailed to make sure we got them, offering to send the receipt as well. Kind and hospitable, it made Barcelona even better!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with its own bath.

The hostel is situated in the middle of the Old Town, which is perfect as a starting point for shopping, visiting museums, restaurants and taking the metro. The hostel has a very friendly staff working there, they were flexible and did not hesitate to help us with what we needed. The rooms were tidy and varied in size, but clean and serve their purpose (sleeping!). Since you will be busy with exploring BCN you won't have much time to stay in anyway. I strongly recommend this hostel if you want to stay in the city centre and are happy with regular standard rooms without any extra facilities.

In a great location but poor value for money. Even though we visited at a busy time, I expected the room to look something like the pictures! Our double room was small, floor tiles were cracked, door wouldn't stay shut, bed was rickety and bed covers old. Uninvited visitors woke up guests at 6am and were not evicted for 2 hours!
Considering we paid 110 Euros for a double and 65E for a single with no bathroom, I expected much better. We have been backpacking in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos so are used to basic. This was worse than most we have stayed in.
However the concierge was very friendly and helpful.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while in Barcelona on a moderate budget. I guess I expected a little more from a european hostal, especially since friend's of mine have stayed in some truly fantastic ones, however this was a slight disappointment. The location was perfect right in the heart of the barri gothic, however from the photos on the website I expected a little more. Our room had 2 small beds (which more like cots) and a small balcony overlooking the street (which was cool). The bathroom was quite a put off. The hook that you put the shower handle in to take a shower was broken. The sink drain was very slow and didn't smell great. In it's defence, the wifi worked great and was sufficiently clean, still not really worth the $75 Euro we paid.
