I stayed here for two nights when running the Barcelona marathon. It's a hostel so if your expectations match I have to say at the price paid for a twin room with shared bathroom it offers excellent value for travellers (not families as some restaurants and bars nearby). The location was excellent and just a few minutes walk to Las...

This was our first time staying in Barcelona and in any hostel. The location was difficult for us to find at first but once we arrived it was very nice inside. The view from our room was great with a balcony. We were greeted by the owner and given a map with some of the best places to explore in...

This was our first time staying in Barcelona and our first time staying in a hostel. Me and my friend (two young females from England), stayed here for a week and I have to say we had an amazing time. We got to the hostel extremely easily and were welcomed warmly, given all the info we asked for before being...

I stayed for two nights at Mapamundo with my sister and mother in June 2016. Jandro was very communicative before our arrival and waiting at the hostel when we arrived. He was very friendly and offered us tea, coffee and water as soon as we were in the door and gave us a thorough orientation of the city with a...

I stayed at Mapamundo for 3 nights with a friend. The room was big, the environment was nice, the staff was amazing, the location was perfect and I felt safe there. The surroundings were a bit loud due to the (great) night life.

I booked a triple room at Mapamundo for a weekend in the city with friends, to explore the area and watch FC Barcelona play. Jandro (presumably the owner) emailed us a few days before we were due to arrive with helpful navigation and arrival instructions; it is important to provide the hostel with an approximate ETA as there is no...

We stayed at Mapamundo for 2 nights over the Easter weekend in 2016. I'm not overly experienced with hostels so I wasn't sure what to expect cleanliness wise. However, I can say that it was very clean. The staff clearly look after the place. We were treated but Jandro who talked us through a map of Barcelona and gave us...

It's a nice apartment that was converted into an accommodation for travellers. We pretty much had the whole place to ourselves (in October) most of the time...except for the last day when there was quite a queue for the shower (there's only one) and everyone was getting ready to go out. Love the location - bustling and not too far...

The staff was very friendly. Upon arrival Jandro sat down with us and told us all about the city and the nice places, how to get there etc. The hostel is very conveniently located, right in the city centre. A definite must if you are staying here, is having dinner at Sensi Gourmet Tapas (about 15 metres to your right...

Great hostel at a great price! As three lads on tour (Lads lads lads!) we wanted somewhere near the night life and that is exactly what we got. Yes it is quite a challenge to find initially and the street can be noisy but that is the trade off for an excellent location. Rooms are comfortable and there is plenty...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

Therefore our guest are willing to stay for longer periods as well. MapaMundo is a cosy guesthouse with few private rooms located in the well-known and centric area of el Gotico in the centre of Barcelona. We are only at 4 minutes walking from the famous `Las Ramblas´ and within walking distance of some of the Barcelona's major attractions : Museo Picasso, Port and Beach, Pedredra, Plaza Catalunya etc Furthermore you will find a lot of great restaurants, nice pubs, small terraces and others which will make you appreciate the magic of Barcelona next to our guesthouse.
