There is a great atmosphere at this hostel. The staff are friendly and the breakfast was much better than expected (Soy Milk was a bonus). There are also two common areas, a ping pong table and a terrace.

We stayed at the hostel during our visit to Barcelona. The place is clean, well organised, breakfast was sufficient. Funny thing is that you wash your ownd dishes. The room was clean, and equipped. Location is great.

I spent a few weeks this summer at HelloBCN and it was a blast!! The staff are super friendly and helpful. The bar/lounge has a great atmosphere for meeting people which is great if you are alone, or even if you're in a group! The people who work the bar are travelers too so they can help with pretty much...

Had a great time at the hostel with the staff - Manuel, Josh (Ricky Baker), Oli, Jess, Katie and Vicky. The crew made for a great time with ping pong, pub crawls and the bar. These staff went above and beyond to make our Barcelona experience unforgettable. Otherwise it was a great clean hostel, in a very convenient location. Would...

Awesome experience with HelloBCN. Staff was incredibly accommodating of our requests for room rearrangements, and were very forgiving and helpful when I forgot to check out before exploring town on our last day. Great location near many bars and restaurants, and a metro station is just two blocks away. Can't recommend enough!!

Arrived here around room where I was greeted by Manuel. Very friendly host, made everything clear for us as fat as amenities around the hostel. Knew we've been traveling, figured we might want dinner. Reccomended a Tapas avenue a few blocks away. Which was great. The metro was 2 blocks away, the marina in walking distance. Great point of you...

This place was by far my favourite hostel so far. Very friendly and professional staff and a great atmosphere in the downstairs bar/lounge area. The pub crawls are great fun and a good way to make fast friends with folk. They also did a 1 euro dinner and you could pay 2 to get a beer with it. They were...

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
