Despite being really close to the Ramblas action, it's in a pretty quiet location. Rooms are tiny, and there's no lift for the 3 flights of stairs, but it is really really clean (even in the shared bathrooms we had - they must be cleaned continuously). Staff were exceptionally welcoming and helpful - sorted out a problem we had with... More

Good price- get room #1 if you can. We ended up changing rooms due to sewer pipe smell coming from our sink. Rooms are tight and tiny but we made it work. You may want to explore where to book online as I discovered it was actually a better deal to book through a third party rather than directly with... More

I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a simple clean hostel in a good location, no fancy bed linen or anything. The room, kitchen, showers and bathrooms were immaculately clean and staff were friendly. The showers and bathrooms were always available. The rooms are small but true to size as stated. Bins changed everyday and every two... More

Lovely little pension- excellent location, both quiet and very central. We stayed as a young couple (September 2013) and had a great time. Very friendly and helpful staff (recommended good restaurants), all of whom spoke good English. The room was very clean on arrival, and was cleaned each day- as were the shared bathrooms. This really is a great place... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The location is great - in the Gothic area. We shared a bathroom and toilet which was fine - they were very clean and we never had to wait to use them. The room was small but that was no problem. The staff were friendly and helpful and recommended some places to eat.

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.
