Stayed here for 4 nights. The staff are nice and friendly, always asking how you are and trying to include you in activities etc. They have regular nights out and group activities, we unfortunately didn't participate so I can't comment on them, but we weren't really looking to drink loads and get drunk every night on our visit. We were...

We paid a lot of money to stay here for three nights and I don't think it was quite worth it. However, that's not to say it was a bad experience, I'd just say it's overpriced a tad. What I liked: The location was decent, not too far from the train or bus stop. Staff was helpful in recommendations and...

January 2010 saw me and my housemates stranded in Barcelona late at night, due to snow grounding all buses and trains back to Logrono. Luckily my housemate had his trusty Lonely Planet guide to hand, and found a write up for Mambo Tango Hostel. We gave them a call and, despite it being nearly midnight, they assured us we could...

This place was nice and cozy. Kinda small but a super friendly atmosphere. They have staff for all age groups. I really enjoyed when Giovanni was working front desk. He made me feel super comfortable and had great recommendations for local and nearby attractions. He was also super approachable and always invited guests for a cup of tea or coffee...

I stayed 7 nights at this hostel. The staff is very friendly and will help you with all the things and questions you may have. Every night they organized something like going to the magic fountain or a bar. And after the bar to a club (all free entrance, for Saint Jordi guests, Mambo Tango is one of the hostels...

Me and my boyfriend stood 3 nights at the double room. Very cozy and we had a good surprise: Cacau, Brazilian as us at the desk, gave us lots of tips! The hostel's localization makes a huge difference, near Poble Sec metro station - which links all main lines of the city and near Las Ramblas, Barceloneta, Montjuic... Just recommend!

I stayed at Mambo Tango based on a friend's recommendation and originally only booked it for three nights. After the first two days I extended my stay to 6 nights because I liked it so much. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the accommodations were nice and the entire facility was spotless. Plus it is in a great location...
