To start with there was no signage to indicate which buzzer was for Blue Hostel, we only managed to enter the building when some people leaving let us in. Our room was unbearably hot and stuffy. The room had a window overlooking other rooms (very little privacy & noisy), and had a large drop to the ground floor, not very...

Great location! Hostel was a bit hard to find (no signs). No elevator. Room for two was very ascetic and could have had better sheets. Very noisy all the time (thin walls) and could hear other people snore in the other rooms at nightime. Air was thick in the room and it didn't help opening the window.

Bed bugs in room and no one was willing to help us, so we had to leave early. Bad service, no apology and no refund. Victoria (the owner) ignored calls and emails afterwards. DO NOT STAY HERE! Nobody was ever at the reception so it wasn't possible to get a towel since they were supposed to give it to you.

Seems this hostel is the same as "Barcelona 4 fun"? I stayed here for a couple of nights in December 2015. The guy at reception was very friendly and helpful and down to earth and quite funny! The room was large and had wifi and a large wardrobe for putting your stuff in. The showers were clean. The interior of...

Ok, so we booked a twin room for a reasonable price. But when we arrived we were unfortunate to receive the "bunk-bed-closet". A tiny room with no windows, no AC, and a improvised lock on the door. The improvised lock could get picked by a toddler. We asked to get the room we ordered but they were fully booked and...

If I could give this place a zero, I would. First of all there are no signs whatsoever. It's an apartment building and there are lots of private homes. We had to ask around and a shop owner across the street rang every single bell until someone let us in. We still had to ask around to find which floor...

This hostel has one of the best entrances ever, its such a Victorian style building but too bad it doesn't have an elevator for the long night drunk come ins. Anyhow, they have one of the best FREE internet connections I ever experienced (better than any 5 stars hotel). Jose and the other receptionist (from Venzuella) are lovely and very...

It is a stinky smoker hostel. There were no free towels. No free laggage left. No bike rent was available. Very loud at night. Small rooms. Not very clean. We can´t recommend this accomodation. Stay was in August 2014.

This hostel was just fun experience. Built in a historic building in the heart of the city. When you go in from this little wooden door from Carrer Ample you can't even imagine that this place is a hostel. Our room was small but there was everything you need for such a cheap price: cozy bed and working fan. Bathrooms...

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a brand new hostel with a different concept, small but with big and comfortable rooms. You will absolutely feel at home because it’s really quiet and silent.The building is a modernist palace situated in the centric “Gótico” district and the best thing of all, it’s only two blocks from the famous “Rambla”. Blue is in the very center of the 'Movida'...that is mean.. in the center of Nigthlife spot.Close to the hostal (5 minute-walk) you can find the best turistic attractions of town like the “Plaza Real”, Museums, the cathedral of Barcelona. The beach, “Arc Del Triumph' and the “Liceu” theatre you can find them within 15 minutes. As well as the Picasso museum, “Port Vell” and the Colon promenade. ... more   less
