Reviews summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI

Nestled in the quieter part of Poblenou, The Social Hub Barcelona garners mixed feelings for its location—appreciated for tranquility and public transport options, yet not central. Guests commend the friendly staff, stylish ambiance, and the vibrant youthful vibe, alongside well-loved amenities like the rooftop bar and gym. However, some visitors highlight inconsistencies in cleanliness and service, with maintenance and soundproofing in rooms occasionally falling short. While many find the hotel to be a good value, additional costs have been a sticking point for others.

I was surprised at the quality of this hotel for the price I paid. The room was great. Well stocked mini bar. The WiFi was quick so I could do bits of work when needed. The staff were great and friendly. I was able to check in to my room early. Breakfast was great. (I had room only but paid each morning for breakfast which was around €14 a time with a big breakfast buffet selection) the food in the bar restaurant was great.

The pool is shallow but you can still swim a little in it. The gym has a great selection of equipment and the rooftop pool and bar area are great.

It’s about a 10 minute walk from the beach with a big shopping centre nearby. A taxi from the airport is about €45 and around €20 in to the centre of Barcelona.

I would highly recommend staying here

The Social Hub is in a nice quiet, residential area but still has great transport links to get you around. The shared areas are really stylish and functional and the bedrooms also have everything you could need. The staff in particular are super-friendly and helpful - always making you feel welcome.

Excellent hotel with great service and vibe, amazing location and facilities. The gym, pools and people who work at the bar and reception were simply amazing!
The cleaning service has to improve a little bit and the bed linen is too small for the bed size.
I would come back. for sure.

We booked a room for 14 nights, so we had the opportunity to have a studio appartment.

Cons :
Cleanliness: the headboard was covered in dust bunnies, and so was the underside of the bed (we figured it out because something fell under). The bedside tables were also very dusty, and there was a large sticky trace (like gel - probably lube...) on one of the bedside tables which we cleaned right away. The doors were extremely dirty, with large splashes and marks. The mirror in the room was also covered in stains. So we asked for an emergency cleaning, and in the end we think our request was misunderstood because only the bathroom and sink were cleaned and towels changed (standard cleaning then), but nothing was done about everything else that had been reported.
We ended up cleaning the mirror too, disgusted by the stains. We also found that the doors could be cleaned very well when we tried to clean a corner of one of them with dish soap, sponge and paper towel, although we'd been told that the marks persisted because of the coating of the doors.
There were no plates in the room, nor the complimentary water. In the end, there were also no disposable kitchen towels, which we should have had, and we had a knife but no cutting board (that we never got by the way).
We were told that cleaning would be done once a week, but we weren't given a choice of day, so cleaning was on Monday (we arrived and would be leaving on a Monday). So we were only going to have room cleaning once during our stay. After insisting, we got we able to have cleaning on Sunday. But on the 2nd Sunday, nobody cleaned the room.
Given how little cleaning is offered, they could at least provide guests with a dustpan and broom, or even better, a hand-held vacuum cleaner, as we can't even clean the kitchen floor or under the table where we eat.
We were also surprised by the fact that beyond the 2 rolls of toilet paper offered, we had to either buy some oursourselves or pay for it to the hotel.

Also, the shower had no pressure, it was really unconvenient to wash our hair.

Pros : The staff was very professionnal, helpful and friendly except for the manager who refused to changed our cleaning day.

We loved the fact that the hotel has a ping-pong table and a pool table.

The free laudry room is a great service (so is the free gym but we didn't use it so)

The 2 pools and the rooftop are also great.

Not much things around but the subway station is at 5 mn walk and the beach is at 20 mn walk

Great place to stay outside of the more touristy center of Barcelona. It was an easy, 10-15 minute bus ride to basically any destination in the city (the buses take contactless payment so you don’t need to buy a ticket or transit pass) and the hotel itself has a ton of amenities and incredible views. The staff are also exceptional. I screwed up our reservation (accidentally booked a week later) and they sorted it out within 10 minutes (at 1am no less) and ended up REFUNDING the price difference. And they were nice about it! Truly amazing. The gym was also good and they have nespresso machines in the room.

Stayed for one week on business trip. This "hotel" was really not up to snuff for what I needed. It felt more like an overgrown hostel. Other than being a few blocks from where I was working and near the metro station, there wasn't much else that I liked. The room cleaning was poor and inconsistent, the laundry facilities were non-functional, and the staff were a bit clueless. The bed was possibly the worst part. If you are not a fan of extremely firm mattresses (think plywood with a pillow top) you will probably agree.

We absolutely loved this hotel. The room was spacious with great amenities like cappuccino maker, water (and mini bar items for sale). Private bath has a huge walk-in shower with soaps/shampoo. Comfortable bed. Great city views (our room could see Sagrada Familia). Great breakfast with plenty of hot and cold options. Tons of areas on first floor to sit on a sofa in the corner, grab a table by the window, or socialize with ping pong or other games. Good Wi-Fi. Rooftop bar and pool were great for sunsets. Front desk is 24/7 and staff is amazing, especially Sofi, Max & Berta!

I'm a digital nomad and I've been to many nice coworkings and colivings but I have to say this was prob my favorite experience. The vibe is just awesome, the coworking spaces are amazing, and it's so convenient with the laundry machines, gym, and amazing coffee right there. Also, I think one of my favorite things was that the rooms are well insulated so it's very quiet and you can sleep properly, which I have found is a major issue in most colivings, very thin walls and badly built buildings so you can't relax in your room in full silence, but not here!! If I had not already booked my next trip, I could easily have extended another few weeks :)

Staying at the social hub was a dream. Friendly staff, good breakfast, nice restaurant with good prices, a bit hard beds but not too bad. The location is perfect, a bit out of the city so it’s not so much noise, but close to the metro and in the city centre in 15 minutes. Over all a fantastic experience!

The staff here are dishonest and rude. They constantly told me that my room was not cleaned because I had a do not disturb sign on my door, when in fact it was missing. I’ve encountered with a total of nine people via telephone or face to face over a four day period complaining about the same issue, and not one single person apologised. In the end the management left a box of chocolates in my room without a note or apology. Extremely unprofessional and disingenuous management and staff. Absolutely do not recommend.
