I stayed here with friends last month for my first proper visit to Barcelona and the Hostal is in an excellent location no time to La Ramblas with easy access to the busses for the airport and the city tour busses! We were always out and about and we enjoyed having a private room and bathroom for the three of us to get ready and the beds were comfortable for sleeping in! One negative thing was the fact that our balcony door to our room had a broken lock and the shutters were easy to open from the outside too which was concerning but overall the Hostal and the staff who run t were great and we loved Barcelona!

Stayed: June 2017, travelled with friends

Very warm place and friendly staff. The location is ideal especially if you have a limited time and need to make the most of it! It's located just 1 block away from Placa Catalunya and the AEROBUS stop to the airport, and also is 30m from a metro station of placa urquinaona (yellow line) The place is very clean and the rooms are just what you need for a pleasant stay. I visited in February and noticed there was no a/c (just a ceiling fan) at the room I was, so I am not sure about a summer stay when the weather is too warm. You can always ask before booking and the excellent staff is always there to answer your questions.

Thank you dear Dimitri for you lovely comments and evaluation!! As you mention our location is fantastic. Walking distance from the most important attractions Barcelona has to offer. Such as La Rambla, Plaza Cataluña, Arc de Trioumf, Palau de la Musica and many more. The Aerobus is three minutes away wich is always good. We do not use a/c and have fantastic fans that are ok for the weather during summer. Thank you for your comments about our staff. For us it was a pleasuere to have you as our guest. You are always welcome to stay with us again! Best regards, Maite Awad.

The hostel was above standard, great locate everything required within walking distance. Staff very friendly and clean, will definitely stay again when revisiting Spain. For easy and convenience I recommend the sighting bus, you can jump and and off at different locations you can find this around the corner near the square.

Dear Maria, Thank you very much for your comments and evaluation about our hostel and staff. We are pleased to be above standard :) As you say, we are located right in the city centre, walking distance from all the important sites Barcelona has to offer. It is a good idea to take the hop on hop off bus, as it is the easiest way to get to know the city if you´re here for just a few days. If not I always recommend to explore around this fabulous city with no strict plan, but knowing what you want. We wish you the best and hope you visit us again. Best regards, Maite Awad.

Took my grand daughter for her 17th birthday . We searched for a place in the centre of Barcelona and also where we could have a three bedded room. What a find. Right in the centre close to the Metro and with plenty of small places locally to eat. The ladies on reception were very helpful and friendly. The hostal was extremely secure and we had no worries with regard to security. The room was lovely with a small balcony and a great bathroom. Despite the fact that there were 3 of us there was plenty of room and it was very comfortable. The reception was manned all night and it was warm and inviting to come back to after a long days walking. Would definitely recommend it as a great place to stay.

Room Tip: For a cup of tea or coffee before bed take a travel kettle,coffee machine in reception for 1 euro a cup is switched off at night.

Nice place with comfy rooms. Great staff! I was a little fearful with our room being so close to reception, but slept well both nights. The bathroom was just a few steps away and very comfortable. The location near Barcelona Cathedral and the water was perfect.
