The only good thing I found at this hostal is the location - it is close to Placa Espania where you arrive from the airport, it is close to Montjuic, it is close to the beach and to the city centre. However, the rooms are very very small, some of them have the window overlooking a strange indoor opening; the...

Good location with easy access to Metro. Comfortable with good amenities but poor insulation means there is a lot of noise from adjoining rooms; an adjacent restaurant also causes disturbance at night. However, the beds are comfortable and hot water plentiful. The safe and wi-fi are free in the rooms. There is a spacious, comfortable lounge with large flat screen...

I stayed in the private ensuite room. The room was clean and small but fine. For the main sights the hotel has a good location. Walking distance of the Ramblas and Playa the Catalunya (the last one 15 minutes). In the neigherbood you find different cafes and restaurants (2 minutes walking distance).

There's a cross street with a bunch of restaurants and bars near this hostel, so if you want a good night's rest, this isn't the place to stay. The hostel itself is very quiet..almost too quiet. Very much unlike any other hostel I've ever visited. There's common areas but nobody hangs out there. I think the majority of people that...

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights, although the hotel is clean and is in a good location for the main sights in the city like La Rambla etc we could not get to sleep until after 3am both nights due to the very, very loud music on the street below from a bar opposite. We did ask to...

We stayed here in mid-May and it was perfectly adequate for our needs. It's very close to Paral.lel metro stop, and several of the nearby streets have great tapas restaurants. The single room was small, but adequate, and very clean. The front desk people were helpful, for the most part, but didn't really go out of their way to be...

No so friendly staff. Really tiny but clean rooms. Don't choose any room on the first floor, viewing the carrer Roser. There are three huge garbage bins located right underneath the window of room 112. All night long you will be kept awake by bar owners and drunk party people throwing bottles in the bins and loudly commenting on soccer...

About 60 rooms in a little street diagonal to the Avinguida de Parralel, between the Montjuich and the Avinguida. Absolutely make sure you do NOT sleep in a room on the front side where the noise from the glass containers prevents you from sleeping ; definitely since the city empties those overnight...The rooms are extremely small and we paid for...

Well, I stayed there several times due to the price and location mainly. I agree that it's not a 3star hotel, I would give it maybe2+ as still I had the basic things I needed (hot water, necessary furniture, the internet was ok at the groundfloor, the room was at 3rd floor so not much noise). A 3star hotel would...

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
