Reviewed 5 February 2012

If you are looking for a place to feel at home while you visit Barcelona Spain, La Isla Hostal Catalunya Barcelona is the best choice.

I spent there a full week and i had the best services. The staffs at La Isla Hostal are really very welcoming and wonderful. You receive a very warm welcome and you are always given the best of their services right from the day you arrive to the day you live. They are really always available for any assistance for their clients and hey, they will make sure you feel at home for all your stay:)

Room Tip: The place is really quiet.

Very clean room with modern furniture. We had a room with a double bed, desk, closet (no safe), and a sink w/mirror in the room. They provided shampoo, soap and towels. The bathroom was shared, but we had no issues and never had to wait to use the bathroom. Free WIFI throughout, plus a coffe/tea stand in the lobby. No public computer.

My only complaint is that there is no AC, which I know is common for places like this but I love my AC! We only stayed one night so it wasn't an issue, but the room was very hot and I'm just not used to not having AC so it was hard to sleep. If that isn't an issue for you than I would definitely recommend this hostal!

This place was a really good deal overall for what we got. The location was fantastic. We were able to walk from the train station. Do have your maps or GPS ready to go and check Google Street view before hand to know what your looking for. It's in an old apartment building and the only sign is a very small one on the door by the buzzer. We just found it with the street numbers. The staff were unbelievably helpful and friendly. Gave us some great insight in to what was going on in the city at the time, some good places to eat, and how to get around. These guys were fantastic. The location is perfect for getting around as it's right by a metro stop (Arc de Triomf), less than a minute walk to a beautiful park, and the surrounding neighborhood is very nice. The rooms themselves are clean and basic. The furnishings come from IKEA most likely, but it was clean and well kept. Nice little flatscreen TV and blazing fast Internet WIFI. Bathrooms we had were shared with but it looks like it's only two rooms to a bathroom so no issue. Bathrooms were always clean and stocked with TP. Only issue was the walls are a bit thin. One night we had the pleasure of listening to some post clubbing exercise in the room next door, but other than that it was a great find. No street noise or other issues to speak of. Would certainly stay here again.
