Good 7.6 From 126 reviews

Very good 8.0
Great value, clean and brilliant location
I stayed in a double bed room with private bathroom. Very very clean and had all amenities I needed in the room and a comfy bed. Checked the shared bathrooms on my floor and also looked very clean and tidy. Road was a little noisy throughout the night which was the only downside, however for the money I think it was great value. The local area is brilliant for great tapas, including Ciutat Comtal and El Nacional. Gaudi’s Battlo House is also two minutes away on foot.

Nice place to stay
It is a nice humble facility. We have a room with 5 beds to accommodate our 4 people family. The room was big , nice and clean, with private bathroom. The hostal (hotel) is well located in downtown at a walking distance from many city attractions. The staff was very friendly.

Very good 8.0
Centrally located near Gothic Quarter. Ask for a room with a balcony. Tends to be a bit loud from street traffic but everything is in Barcelona! It has great character!

Clean, inexpensive, good location.
Clean place, good price, good location close to major transits. Only comment is the number of power plugs, i d have to unplug something (fridge or tv) to charge my phone. They also dont have cups or plates so u cant really drink or eat comfortably in the room.
