From stylish Barcelona to sunny resort towns on the Costa Brava and Costa Dorada, Catalonia offers a wealth of attractions. Barcelona attracts those who love Gaudi's architecture, hot nightlife and thrilling restaurants. Elegant Tarragona's Roman ruins and amphitheater add to its historical appeal. Beach lovers flock to Mediterranean playgrounds including pine back-dropped Cape Salou, stunning Costa de Garraf, home to gay-popular beach resort Sitges, and the 40 sandy miles of La Maresme.

Ok for just a one night stay as was close to the airport metro. However I had concerns about the cleanliness of the bathroom with some hairs on the floor. There were also mosquitos in the room which was very annoying . Hotel was noisy from both other guests and from the local wildlife (not sure whether it were birds or frogs/crickets in the surrounding gardens). Definitely not a place for a restful sleep. TV remote control was non functional and the Wi-Fi was extremely poor.

You’ll find Generator Barcelona conveniently located just a 5 minute walk from two main metro stations, Diagonal and Verdaguer. Travelling to and from the hostel to all the must see sights is a piece of cake. The beautiful sandy beaches are just a 15 minute metro journey away, and only a short walk away are the maze of small streets of the Eixample district, home to Barcelona’s trendy shops, bars and restaurants.

My experience at the Generator Barcelona was truly awful. Hostels are supposed to be easy, efficient and cheap places to stay. However, the Generator is none of those things. My trouble began when checking in. They claimed to not have me booked for 3 nights, despite my email which confirms I had a reservation. They proceeded to charge me 450€ (because I was not in the system) even though I confirmed I would pay 350€. That is completely unacceptable. They scrambled to find me a bed and put me in the most repulsive room with obnoxious roommates — one man came back drunk at 5am, vomiting and crying. My roomcard rarely worked and needed to be replaced several times. The pictures the Generator posts online are extremely deceiving, as the rooms are tiny, VERY hot, there are no lockers nor curtains. Staff members were very rude and not helpful at all. They took no accountability for their mistakes and made it seem like I caused the issues. Don’t they work in the hospitality industry? My stay at the Generator was anything but hospitable. Every other guest I spoke to also had poor experiences. Not to mention, after paying a ridiculous amount of money for a hostel (which should be cheap) I saw random people sleeping on lobby couches FOR FREE. So while I paid a ton of money for a tiny and uncomfortable bed, some people slept for free on the couch. Because my room was so awful, I found it easier to spend time in the lobby with my friends. However, when we tried having a conversation at a table, the front desk man rudely told us to shut up meanwhile there were loud and drunk people stumbling through the lobby at 3am. So you’re telling me, we cannot have a calm conversation with my friends, yet it’s okay to be loud and overly intoxicated? I will never recommend this hostel to anyone. Even if it’s your cheapest option - don’t go.

Stayed here last week with 3 mates in a private room. Got to the hotel early and were offered a bag drop which was great. Room was fine, everything clean and tidy and good value for money. Location was pretty good as near a lot of sites and landmarks, note it is a good walk to the beach. Were told on the second day from a guy on reception when stopping us whilst on way to our room that we had to wear the room band when entering the hostel (not had to do that in any other hostel or even on the first day?) but fine no problem. Overall, good value for money.

We help you live, breathe, eat and sleep like a local while you discover Barcelona and the Barri de Gràcia, its culture, events and people. We're your home for a few days, we're Casa!
Do not believe the pictures with the filters, the rooms are in awkward condition and really really not worth the money. The staff behaves inappropriately, and the price really does not reflect what you get. It is better to stay away, pay a little more and get a reward ratio that is worth it.

I never got to be at their place - because within 2 hours the day before I arrived, they cancelled my booking. So unfortunately there was a problem with me creditcard, that I was not aware of. The day before they wrote me and email about the problem. This is here it starts. The gave me a response time within 2 hours. At that time I was out of the country, on another vacation. Which of course means you dont see your emails within two hours. So when I arrived hame and was able to check. I already had a cancelled room. Now - I tried to called the reception. Clearly I thought this was just a mistake we had to sort out. No. Now the whole hostel was fully booked and they didn´t want to help me in any way. This was the same day I had to land and stay. So basically they gave me under 24 hours the day before arrival. If you want security and service. Don´t choose this hostel. I have had great experiences in other hostels in Barcelona. I can recomment Zero Barcelona. With high service and nice rooms.

Safestay Barcelona Passeig de Gràcia hostel is located on the most elegant avenue in Barcelona, featuring some of the best architectural walkings you will find in the city. The level of attention to detail you can find on this street is unrivalled not only in Barcelona but in any city of the world. Passeig de Gràcia is a real gem when it comes to capturing those all-important Instagram snaps!
Having booked pre Covid at a different safestay hosel in Barcelona we were finally able to travel 2 years later. We were unable to get a refund even though the travel restrictions were in place but they did let us move our booking to another date. The location of this hostel very good with metro access straight outside and plenty of shops and restaurants. The breakfast was from €2.50 up to €5.50 which was extra on top of our rooms rate. We stayed in a 6 person female dorm with an en-suite. The room was basic but clean and was the perfect base for a city break as you don’t spend much time in the room. Remember to bring a padlock for the locker. There is a roof terrace but no seating or bar available which is a shame. The only negatives are the staff on reception weren’t very friendly and you have to pay €2 to store luggage once you have checked out. This service is free on your arrival day but for some reason not once you have checked out.

Rodamon Barcelona is centrally located on a beautifully renovated 20th Century tipical barcelonan building in the centre of the city. Rodamon Barcelona creates a local, homelike environment in one of the nicest locations in Barcelona. Once you get in, you will automatically feel like at home - comfortable beds, delicious fresh breakfast, lockers, linens, Wifi, large common areas with fully equipped kitchen, relaxing area, laptops available, games and TV, plus an amazing terrace! Rodamon Hostel is the place to be if you are looking for an authentic barcelonian experience - We host our guests both in private and shared rooms. Rodamon has been favourably compared to a hotel, with 'spotlessly clean', 'smart-looking and comfortable' rooms and dorms and 'beautiful, modern minimalist decor'. Each of the bunk beds has a power socket, personal light and dark curtains so you can have a comfortable sleep and enjoy your privacy while staying in a dorm.
Rodamón might be the cleanest hostel I’ve ever stayed in. Every time I turned around someone was emptying a garbage or wiping a counter. The location is excellent, minutes aware from the metro, bike rentals everywhere, cafes and restaurants all over, super desirable location. They have this huge terrace and my friend and I happened to be in a room that opened right up onto it. I think we were room 7 beds 7 and 8. So we essentially just left those doors open all the time, it was gorgeous. With the terrace being as great as it is it would be nice if they threw more activities in the evening. There was yoga one morning which was nice but it would be great if they hosted evening stuff. The kitchen was also a bit small… but honestly not enough to take stars away. It had a dishwasher too which was a huge bonus. Super happy with this stay!

Hostal Levante is situated in the Barcelona's central and oldest neighbourhood, el Gotico. Five minutes away from Las Ramblas, the city's main and most famous street and just fifteen minutes walking distance from the beaches of the city (Barceloneta).

The relatively new Hostel One Paralelo opened in 2011 and has received very high ratings from our reviewers ever since. Our guests say the 'cool, friendly and family', with attentive, friendly staff and clean, new and comfortable beds. It's located near Paral·lel metro station, 'super close and convenient to the centre of Barcelona', within walking distance of Placa d'Espanya, La Rambla, Placa Reial and more. We like their free nightly dinners, made by the staff and designed to create a communal family atmosphere. Close Our custom-designed hostel features thick, comfy mattresses, instant and long-lasting 24hr hot water, bright rooms with windows, free Wi-Fi and computers where you can upload your memory cards. We have a fully-equipped kitchen at your disposal. Even better than that is our sunny patio with Jacuzzi and BBQ to rest and chill out from this crazy city. Our TV gets most sports events, from English premier league to NFL, plus a load of new movies. But what will make the difference is our staff - a mixture of residents and travellers with different backgrounds that are happy to help you sort out whatever you need. Between us we've got a maniacal attention to music, improvised Spanish- and Italian-style dinners, BBQs and crazy and innovative outdoor activities so you can discover our city from a new point of view. Feel at home far from home!!
Wonderful hostel with magical staff. The place to have great party in Barcelona and be able to meet people from all around the world with the feeling of being with a family. Caroline is here to make your stay the more enjoyable possible. Everything just felt right there... Thanks for everything ?
