Arc de Triomf Hostel
Ranked #320 of 736 Specialty Lodging in Barcelona
Reviewed October 14, 2012

This hostel is fantastic value for money! I had a great time staying here. Facilities are all brand new and clean, the beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is fully stocked and comes with a free breakfast, the staff working there were always on hand if you needed anything day or night. They have a beautiful roof terrace - just amazing! I would definitely recommend staying here couldn't have asked for a better place!

Room Tip: Back of the hostel has the quietest rooms ...

This place has it all: super clean, good location (close to metro stop), free breakfast, fair price, nice rooftop, great showers and above all a very friendly and helpful staff.
I guess asking for free tapas would be pushing it ;-))

You read correctly. Francesco, who's been looking after us here, is an absolute champion. The rooms are clean, and you wake to an open window of sun, morning hustle, and bakery smells. Central location to everything, and the most important - their rooftop courtyard! we had some great nights there; so good we stayed in Barcelona longer than we should have.

If you're looking for a hostel in barca, look no further.

My daughter and I stayed here in May, and the hostel had only been open a week. We were amazed at how beautifully decorated and clean the hostel was..how central its location and how adorable the proprietor, Fran was. Nothing was too much trouble. We were both impressed with all the facilities, and the little attention to details like the scented candles in the bathroom, the pretty balconies and the luxuriuous lounge area. We did not realise until the second day that breakfast was provided in the price which was a bonus! The rooftop terrace area has stunning views across the city and we took lots of photos! We cannot recommend this hostel highly enough. Fran is a wonderful host and is proud of his new venture..it was hard to say goodbye..we would have liked to have stayed longer. Our only bugbear was that during the night some male travellers were added to our room, which was a bit of a shock..next time we will book the double room..but considering we arrived in Barcelona with nowhere booked to stay, we were grateful the tourist centre told us about the hostel, and that there was room for us at short notice. Originally we were going to stay for 3 nights, but ended up staying for 6!

Room Tip: if you are travelling as a same sex couple, I would advise having a room to share.

I second everything the previous poster said. It is so easy to explore the city from this hostel with metro and bus stops right at the nearest intersections. The Born neighborhood (boutiques, cafes, amazing alleys) is across the street. Bus will take you from the arc to the beach or up to Montjuic or Tobidablo.

Francesc, the owner, is absolutely lovely and has done a great job decorating the hostel. The beds and pillows are still new--and the most comfortable I have ever slept in a hostel. The couches are so comfy, I always spent some time relaxing in the sitting room. I highly recommend this hostel--it is comfortable, relaxing and friendly.

Position - couldn´t be better. Less then one-minute walk from Arc de Triumf metro stop.
Clean, full of light and sun. The building itself is ancient (no elevator) very tipical for Barcelona, with small beautifull balconies. It has several rooms, with very high ceelings, tipical mosaic floors. It´s very clean, new showers (sep. for girls and boys). Has kitchen (place to store your drinks or food in fridge) and hostal even serves breakfast. And the thing I love most is the sofa-rooms, ideal to have some lunch alone or in company or to have some reading on comfortable sofas... If you want magic views to the city or to have a night under the starts - welcome to the roof of the building!
The owner is young person, very kind, nice and lovely like all the people helping around.
Sure next trip to Barcelona I will stay there again!
