Last year I stayed a couple of days at MariLuz. We were about the only guests and the place was really clean: every time I went to the bathroom, the floor still was a bit wet as they had just cleaned it. Also the staff was really friendly. The place is located in Barrio Gótico, very close to the Plaza...

Thank you very much for your feedback! Indeed, we don't recommend our establishment for people with mobility issues or seniors. Since our building is considered historical heritage we can't instal an elevator indeed... Hope we'll see you back soon

The location of this hostel is right at the center and is just a 5 to 10 minute walk to La Rambla. We had to climb up three flights of stairs to get to the hostel but upon reaching the place, we were welcomed with cool air conditioned place plus a friendly face. The receptionist was so helpful as she...

Overall just a really good hostel. Room, bathroom and kitchen were spotless... Lovely showers, beds are so comfy and individual aircon unit for each room so you can control the temp, which is a massive bonus! Would definitely stay there again!

This place was great. Remember you need to share a bathroom and kitchen. So don't complain about that.. Also, expect it to be more like a hostel experience. So expect younger people to be staying there. Bathrooms were always kept very clean!!! Which was great. Room was good size. Clean. And our room (twin room) had it's own basin. So...

It's a simple and clean and resty hostel in the Gothic quarter. It is on the fourth floor with no elevator, but there's a few minutes walking from the Rambla, Catalunya and the Cathedral Barcelona. Fair accomodation for your money.

Dear Shaun, We're just catching up with tripadvisor and found your comment. Obviously, we can't remember because it was long ago, but probably you had de misfortune of being next to some problematic room when you stayed with us. We just want to say that our guesthouse is a family business where most of the guests are middle age/young couples...

Perfect location for exploring Barcelona. Public transport close, airport bus walking distance, grocery stores for self catering and snacks nearby plus endless choice of restaurants. Tiny room [double] but very clean. Shared bathrooms clean. One good sized bathroom but the other 2 showers are tiny. Up a lot of stairs so not suitable for people with big cases. Our room...

We had two adults and two children staying in a room at the Mariluz. The room was a little tight for 4, the beds ok, but the pillows terrible! As said elsewhere, it's a long way up the stairs! On the positive, it is very cheap, very friendly and in a great location
