Hostal Mare Nostrum
Ranked #21 of 308 Barcelona B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Just spent 2 nights here, nice, clean, very nice people at the reception just off the L3 so great if coming from Sants train station. I knew Barcelona and this is just in the heart of my favorites places, the market, cathedral, Picasso museum, placa catalunya and direct metro line to gruel park and casa pedrera and batllo. We enjoyed it, even if the first stairs are a bit if a downfall at first sight!

Thank you so much for choosing Hostal Mare Nostrum for your last visit to Barcelona.

As you mention, Hostal Mare Nostrum has a ideal location: at the heart of the city, in the middle of Las Ramblas, in front of the metro and next to all tourist attractions of the city.

We are so glad you enjoyed so much your stay with us!

All the best from Barcelona,

This is a hostel. I have never lived in a hostel until this place. This is a clean place, modern furnishing, a small place too. I was on my own, so it is perfect. Everything works in this hostel. The breakfast is basic, but good. The reception is on the first floor, so you have to carry suit cases up. What makes this place special, it is just off La Ramblas. Very convenient to go anywhere, walking. It is clean, quiet and safe. But I have to mention the reception staff, they were very friendly. Booking tours and explaining everything, speaking English! They will go out of their way to help!
I will recommend this place and for sure stay there again when I am alone in Barcelona.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the second floor. The elevator is small for luggage.

Nice room for 3! Great shower and confortable beds. If you want feel safe and confortable, here is your place. Breakfast included was enough to save money! Staff easy to speak in spanish and english. Only negative point: there are some stairs to arrive in the reception, but no worries... elevator works well but only for 3 people. I can recommend this B&B for anyone!! Leonardo Paloni - Brazil

The rooms were stylish and small, but very functional. The staff was accommodating. We have no complaints and would stay there again! (There are a lot of stairs.) The location was awesome... On Las Ramblas, next to a metro stop.

the best things about the hostel are its location (on La Rambla) and the very friendly staff.
it's close to almost everything. the metro is right outside and the amazing market "la boqueria" is only a few minutes up the street. it is also close to the Catedral de Barcelona which is a must see.
the rooms are small but clean, and the breakfast is very free and very good.
the last time I was there the place was under renovation and it smelled of paint but that's just temporary.
I would have a couple of suggestions: do find a way for the rooms with no windows to be aired properly and above all please use better pillows, it's not very relaxing to wake up with back pain.
other than that no complaints. it is a great place to stay while in the amazing city of Barcelona.

Location is so good, everything is 10min away top! Stuffs are very friendly and kind. Breakfast was so fresh and good every day. Rooms are a bit small but very clean. I will recommend it to everybody. I had a group of 20 people age 17-65 and everybody was satisfied :)
