The room is very clean, the receptionist is very friendly, but the door of the washroom was hardly to open. We stayed here for 3 nights, the second night we didn't have hot water when we came back to the hotel, but the receptionist fixed it quickly. We all loved this hotel.

We (female 45 and male 16) stayed for 43 nights on the 1st floor with small balcony facing the street. Noisy (traffic) but we were to tired so no problem. Free Wifi was sometimes weak in the room. It is simple but good. Very helpfull and friendly staff! Nice shower with good hot water. Location is very central and nearby big shopping street Paseig de Garcia and Ramblas de Catalunya and Placa de Catalunya (10 min walk) and to the metro stations. They give 10% discount for the touristic bus and if you want to see a lot of Barcelona you should do this! 3 routes in 1 day, you can get out wherever you like. Every 10 minutes there comes an other bus. Staff gave lot of good advices: metro, locations, restaurants. Best one for tapas is Cerveseria Catalana!! Very nice food and not expensive. Only you have to wait for about 30-40 minutes for a table, but worth it! Accrose the Hostal is a good simple little restaurant to have breakfast: Itaca. We had a great visit in Barcelona and a good nice stay in Hostel Martinval.

Very friendly, helpful staff and comfortable rooms. This hostal is in a good location, slightly out of the main hustle & bustle, but a short walk to some of the main tourist sights and the metro. The room i had was for three people, so there was plenty of space and it also had a lovely terrace you could go out onto and see a little of raw Spanish life!

We stayed at hostal Martinval for 5 nights. Our room was on the third floor with a balcony facing the street. It is a very basic room, so dont expect any phone, place to store much clothes, AC etc... Wifi in the room was also quite weak. The rooms are kept clean, and there's always hot water at great pressure in the shower. The hotel is located in a quiet street, so we easily slept with our balcony doors open. And its only about 10minute walk away from plaça catalunya, la rambla and other places you wanna visit! Its also just a few blocks away from the metro and the famous passeig de Gracia. We also got a 10% discount for the touristic bus :) finally the staff were truly extremely helpful, helping us with directions and advice for moving around... For what we paid, it was a very good experience!

It was a little hard to find at first, but thanks to Google Maps we found it. What a great bunch of people that run this little Hostal / mini Hotel. There is a 24 hour rotation of staff, and every single one of them was so helpful, and friendly. Our room is just as it looked in the review pictures. The bed was really comfortable. I had asked for an extra pillow, which was delivered to my room no sooner that requested, plus an extra for my hubby as well. We had a room facing away from the street, with a little balcony. Nice shower, water always hot and water pressure very good. Central location, and easily accessible to public transport etc and many sights. To top this all of, this little gem was so reasonably priced. Thanks Hostal Martinval staff for making our stay in your beautiful city such a pleasure.
