The Hostel is located in the poble sec area which is beautiful, is super close to the metro station and it service is really great, the people on the counter are really friendly and will help you. There are also some bars and restaurants near the hostel.

After a long day in Barcelona, Hostal Elkano is a great place to have a rest and gain energy for the following day. Quiet, cosy rooms, reasonable prices and kind staff. I'd recommend it to everyone. If I go to Barcelona again no doubt I'll choose this hostel.

I was thinking which rate to choose, this hostal is a little bit better than 'good' but less than 'very good'. For sure - it is a very clean place, rooms are very small without a/c, wifi is free and works very well. We had a double room with a bathroom in the room and with the balcony. Maybe other...

The room and the bathrooms are very clean and the staff is friendly. The hostel is at a really good location, only a few metro stations from La Ramblas and you can also reach the harbour very quickly by foot. The metro station is 2 minutes from the hostel and well connected to all places in the city. The only...

We were there in June 2015 and it was nice. Good location with plenty of bars down the road. More or less near to La Rambla, maybe a 15 min walk. The room was okay, a bit small, but we choose it with own shower and bathroom, so that was good. The biggest problem was that it didnt have A/C...

The place is tidy, nothing special, but provides you with a bed, a communal shower&toilet, a fan and a sink in the room (which is absolutely necessary in the summer). The hostel is easy to find once you have acquired a map of Barcelona. Please beware of pickpocketers around the area, and don't leave anything valuable in the room -...

I have often said that in a holiday it is a concern that a customer enjoys the hotel the most out of their vacation. Thankfully for me, this wasn't the case. Hostal Elkano should take this as a compliment. The positives I take out of my experience in this hostel was that it was extremely cheap, superb location (3-4 tapas...

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.
