We stayed two nights here. Arrived late but it wasn't a problem, the man on reception was friendly and checked us in and gave us all the info we needed. It's a 10euro cash deposit for your wristband which gives you access to the hostel, your room, and your locker in your room. The lockers are fantastic! They were so...

I paid 30€ for one night in an 8 bed room here. It was clean, quiet with a decent atmosphere. The breakfast was well stocked, but pretty meager in terms of the variety. The bathrooms had no mats on the floor or anything so the floor was always covered in shower water. I almost slipped every time I went in...

For €27 a night I wasn't really impressed with this hostel. On arrival they took forever to check us in and just handed us a pack of sheets to make up our beds for ourselves. The shower have bad water pressure and the breakfast is fairly average. On the plus side the nightlife activities and free pub crawls that the...

This was a great choice for a hostel in Barcelona. The place was very clean and the staff was friendly. There is a huge common area in the first floor with a computer area and a bar. Everyone meets there each night, socialized, and then heads out to a bar and club. It is a great place to meet new...

Perfect location in the middle of Barcelona. 10-15 minute walk to the beach, 5 minute walk to Las Ramblas. Great commonroom and small, but still functional rooms. Full of alcohol-happy teenagers. Perfect for backpackers, and absolutely value for your money.

Nice hostel, in a good position. Not far from Ramblas. We rent a cheap bike in the hostel. There's a bar where you can take a cheap beer or sangria. We went out to clubs for free with a guy that work there. They organize free tour too.

first time at a hostel and first time Barcelona. Great staff. Very clean. I was worried because I normally hear different stories about Hostels. This one was great. We did a Free Tour that they recommended to us ( which was great!), breakfast is decent. Bring your own towel, toothpaste, and soap along with sandals to go in the showers....

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
