Minimal, but moder style. Very good. The personal are nice.
I stay here three days with my girlfriend and all was great.
The room are clean and comfortable. Sometimes there are same noise, but it isn't a problem.
Great quality/price rapport

I hesitated between three and four stars on this one, settling for four because the staff were so helpful and friendly, keeping our bags for us after check-out until we caught the afternoon bus. The location is ideal for first-timers to get to grips with Barcelona, being near metro lines and several key districts - a stroll to the Barrio Gotic, and the Boqueria food market for example - and just a few minutes from where the airport shuttle terminates in Placa Catalunya. It's on the first floor of an old-fashioned apartment block but the rooms are strictly minimalist/modern with very few furnishings. Beautifully clean, and with nice linen and very comfortable beds, the trouble is that there is no sound-proofing between rooms or rooms and central lobby so every time someone enters their room the door bangs as loudly as if it's your own - not much fun if you are trying to sleep. Also the air-con was going on and cutting out all night and we couldn't turn it off. We loved the balcony and tall shuttered windows though, and the price was pretty reasonable (no breakfast, or drinks facilities except hot and cold water in the lobby - but we enjoyed going out for a morning coffee in local cafe anyway). We'd consider using it again, but would pack ear plugs.

Room Tip: We had no 6, which had a balcony and two chairs and overlooked the local streets.

The room was clean but without windows, doesn't have services. No 24 hour front desk.
Its in a second floor of a residential building and you don't know where to go when the open the door.
The location its fine.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a hostal to sleep only is a good choice buy expensive.

Estimada Cecilia: Ante todo gracias por elegirnos para su viaje a barcelona!! Lamentamos que su estancia no haya sido del todo placentera, me gustaria comentar que nuestras habitaciones TODAS son EXTERIORES y disponen de BALCON o en su caso de ventana con Vistas a la terraza! Por lo cual me llama la atencion que diga que su habitacion no tenia ventanas.No consideramos que nuestros precios sean elevados si valoramos nuestras calidades, ubicacion y servicios que ofrecemos que se acercan a cualqueir hotel de 3 y 4 estrellas, este aspecto ha sido valorado positivamente por todos nuestros clientes siempre. Al momento de hacer su reserva debio elegir algo mas economico aunque seguramente de menor calidad. La ubicacion de Amra esta debidamente señalizada tanto en el exterior del edificio como en su interior, ademas de que contamos con un portero en el edificio que siempre indica amablemente nuestra ubicacion y en que planta estamos, tal vez al no estar familiarizada con los terminos europeos se pudo Ud. confundir. Nuestra recepcion esta abierta las 24 H todos los dias del año y esto lo podemos garantizar 100% ademas cuenta Ud con una variada oferta de Servicios con nosotros, tales como, DESAYUNO, en el restaurant de los bajos,INFORMACION TURISTICA, VENTA DE ENTRADAS,AGUA FRIA Y CALIENTE GRATIS, CUSTODIA DE EQUIPAJE, etc etc. Sin dudas no pregunto Ud a nuestro STAFF sobre estos y se ha llevado la percepcion de que no se brindaban!! lamentamos este hecho! y esperamos la proxima vez tenerla con nosotros y poder ofrecerle todo nuestro abanico de Servicios en Amra.

A perfect little hostel. The crew was very friendly. I arrived to early so I could leaves luggage. When I returned to check in my room they already put the luggage in the room. This is what I call great service. Normally this is 5 star service.

Everything was modern and very clean and nice. An this for the outstanding price of 70 euros for a double room.

The location is great. Just in the middle of everything.

I will definitively return the next time I stay in Barca.

First time in Barcelona, found Hostal Amra at the last minute and decided to book. Hotel was small with about 6 rooms but very clean, well maintained, and in a great location - right in the heart of several great neighborhoods (Barri Gotic, Placa de Catalunya, El Born). Barcelona is a very walkable city, and the hotel's location gives you a great home base to explore from. The staff was very accommodating and friendly, giving us great local restaurant and bar recommendations in the city for during our stay. We even decided to stay an extra night! Both of our rooms had comfortable beds, lots of space, and a balcony for sitting and drinking wine/people watching.
