First, I'm gonna start with the good points, that way I won't seem all mean and stuff. Well, the location is nice, you have the beach right in front of the hostel, and even though you have to walk from the metro station 6-7 minutes to get to the hostel, it is a really nice detail. Plus, the included breakfast...

The location is pretty good, if you want the beach it's literally a stones throw away, clubs like pacha and opium are also close. It it's a shopping and sightseeing holiday you want then you might want to find a more central place ex. Ramblas. The hostel itself is quite a joke, besides the horrible matresses, the strangest thing was...

The directions to find this hostel are very straight forward. After you get off the metro, you just walk along the long street that takes you towards the ocean. Right there in front of the ocean, you will find the hostel hidden inside a small sit-down/take-out restaurant. The people in check in aren't the friendliest in my opinion, they could...

I wouldn't advise anyone to stay here, my experience of this hostel was very miserable. Most suited to large groups of young lads who intend to party every night til 5am and sleep most of the day away on the beach! Cons: Only one sheet for the bed, so I had to wrap myself in it in an effort to...

Raffael who works nights at the hostel welcomed us and was extremely helpful throughout our stay. He was the best bit about the hostel, helping us with where the best places were to visit and how to get there in the cheapest way. He also, on request, woke us up at 07:15 on our last morning so we could watch...

My friends and I had a lot to praise this hostel for: an amazing location (right on the beach), friendly staff and a nice atmosphere despite the basic nature you should expect of a hostel. But we would never stay there again, because a good night's sleep is impossible. For some reason, the walls between the rooms are incomplete (only...

Their credit card machine wasn't working and a little confusing getting their because the bus system changed since they wrote their directions which was inconvienient but everything else was great and amazing location! I would definitely stay there again!

This hostel is the perfect location, only about 10 meters from the beach, 10 minutes to the big nightclubs and 1 train stop away from gothic qtr. staff were also very friendly. There are 2 negatives though 1) kitchen is tiny with no stove which made eating cheap hard 2) there's no atmosphere with no real social areas. A lot...

The location is unbeatable, right on the beach - if that is what you are after however it is about a 10/15 minute walk to the metro. I was put on a bed ABOVE the bathroom with a 8 ft ladder to get to it. I couldn't even sit up and its was dangerous getting up and down that ladder...

Very good location just down by the beach (and about 1 km walk to all the good clubs in town ). Staff were very friendly and the place was clean. Our room had own bathroom only shared by the 7 people in there. Sheets are provided and ok breakfast is included.

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighbourhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
