“Would stay again.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Perfect loaction for sagrada familia! It also included a guide of good places to eat, drink ect. Staff were very helpful and the place was very clean. Very quiet hostel, but a good first one to stay at. Juat make sure you are alert when looking for it as it is very tricky to spot, and is located inside residentual apartments.

My friend and I stayed at the De Lis Guesthouse for 6 nights in May 2013. We had a 4 bed dorm to ourselves the whole time which was great. The common areas were amazing, the kitchen was huge and great to cook in (with delicious food bought from the markets) and the living area made it feel like a real home. The shared bathroom is good, nice hot showers and plenty of sink space. The staff were excellent, so helpful and even helped us make plans for our stay. The location is good, you can walk to the Sagrada Familia and the tube stop is only a couple mins walk which can take you anywhere you want to go! The only thing I would suggest is to get better pillows, they are a bit small. Overall we LOVED it and I would definitely recommend it to anyone traveling to Barcelona.

I'm writing this review at 00:30 on a Monday from De Lis Guesthouse since I can't sleep with the other guests' noise!

The hostel itself is pretty nice, the location is good, in a local/residential area with wide streets and parks, near a metro stop and within walking distance of all the centric attractions. It's in an apartment building with plenty of restaurants, pharmacies, and small stores in the surrounding blocks. There's a kitchen with a good supply of dishes and cooking implements, and the common space is quite nice, a large dining room, TV/couch area, and a small balcony space. The wifi is fast although it does seem to cut out frequently.

The rooms and bathrooms are adequate, with a large window, comfortable beds and individual lockers, but nowhere to sit or set anything down, and just one light per room. The bathrooms were clean enough.

The main complaint I have is that the staff are present only for certain hours, so when toilet paper ran out on Saturday night it wasn't replaced until Sunday 11 AM when the first staff person showed up. Right now, early Monday morning, no one is here to ask guests to keep the noise level appropriate.

The location and facilities are nice, but be sure you're ready to party every night or don't mind fellow guests doing so. It's better for more independent travelers since you don't have locals available to ask questions all the time. I'd recommend the hostel for those people, but I do think the other reviews here are exaggerated.

Amazing Hostel, the people was really friendly, the place was perfectly clean, the rooms size was perfect. The location is perfect and the people at the hostel give you the perfect tips to enjoy the city to the maximum. The only thing better than the hostel is the staff. The people there is amazing and they take you to the BEST PARTIES EVER during the night. I was twice in Barcelona in 3 months and De Lis was one of the main reasons. I recommend this hostel 100%, there is not a better place in Barcelona to stay. I am looking forward to come back soon!

I traveled all over Europe for a few months and my favorite accomodation was De Lis Guesthouse by far. It's housed in the second floor of an apartment building and has the feel of renting an apartment with all of its amenities rather than a hostel It was clean, modern, stylish and quiet. Easy walk to all attractions, Las Rhamblas and is directly between two metro stops making it very easy to get around. The hostel is associated with an entertainment group, De Lis Group, that hosts the best parties in Barcelona. And while the party is not brought back to the hostel the ownders and employees are so helpful in ensuring you have the best time in the city with insight into the best nightlife, restaurants and activities. I would recommend this hostel to anyone, don't think twice just book it. Made Barcelona one of my favorite places in all of Europe!

De Lis is full of light, clean and quiet. Only 8 blocks from Sagrada Familia!! All rooms are big and there's a kitchen that you can cook your things.But the BestT thing, was that the De Lis staff took us to the best parties in town near the sea! We spent a crazy weekend! We will definitely come back to this place when we come back to Barcelona.
