Couldn't ask for a better location for a 1st time visit to Barcelona-could literally look out our balcony and see the Bouqueria marketplace across Las Ramblas. Room was VERY basic tho and you have to take a little one person elevator or climb a skinny stairway just to get to the front desk. Served our needs fine tho.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Adequate hotel in the center of BCN"
This hotel was fine - nothing special, clean, comfortable, and in close proximity to the key sights in Barcelona. The first room I was given looked out onto a shaft and was very depressing, plus the A/C did not work. They were able to move me the next day to a better room that faced onto La Rambla. But be aware, you're not staying here for the hotel […] - the location is the main selling point. The area is central, busy, and there are some shady characters around at night but I felt safe as a woman traveling alone taking precautions. It's right by the Liceu metro so easy to get to anywhere you want to go. Keep an eye on your bill when you check out - they added a surcharge that was double what it should have been.

"Great location, poor service"
Apart from the staff the hotel was great for the price. They tried to charge me a TAX when I checked out. Asked to see the itemised bill and then he said forget it. It was only a few Euros but don't fall for that. Rooms were clean and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hostal Bcn Ramblas There is a city tax in barcelona which is 0.72 cent per day per person, you didn´ t pay because you dont want to pay, otherwise there is tax in barcelona, we are here for service we are not robers, please read your reservation carefully before blaming us. Thanks
"Great Hostal on La Rambla"
Hostal BCN Ramblas is a great hostal located directly on La Rambla. It is a 5 minute walk to Placa Catalunya making airport bus connections convenient. The room I had was exactly what was needed - comfortable bed and extremely clean. Overall it was a bit noisy in the room as the doors are not very soundproof, but the walls were, so I only heard the […] hallway. The color changing light is the shower is a novelty, but adds a bit of funk. Water pressure was good, hot water fast. Free wi-fi is convenient. Close to the hostal is a market with groceries, snacks and drinks, reasonably priced for the location. When arriving, you have to ring a bell like an apartment. You walk up a flight of stairs to get to the elevator, but an employee came to help with luggage. Then I was given keys to access the house and room. Overall clean, secure and comfortable basic accomodation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Dejligt hotel med fantastisk central placering"
Et lille hyggeligt hotel/hostal med god central beliggenhed (indgang/udgang direkte ud til La Ramblas) og med 50 meter til nærmeste Metro kommer i hurtigt rundt i Barcelona. Trods den centrale placering, var der ingen problemer med nattestøj. Rengøring, service og sengene var helt i top, og den gratis WIFI forbindelse + safety box virkede perfekt. Et […] godt hotel til storbyferien, hvor hotellet primært anvendes som base/overnatning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect location but very small and stuffy rooms"
The location of the hotel is absolutely perfect. However the room we stayed was so clean and enough for us, it was so stuffy because the window was at the side of the airshaft. Receptionists were helpfull and we had daily cleaning. Can be suitable for childless families and also if you need/want fresh air and sun in your room, please be sure that your […] room view is looking onto the street.

Beliggenhet :) midt på La Rambla - perfekt Service :) hyggelig og serviceinnstilt vertskap Rent :) Enkelt og stilig :) delikat rom og bad , ikke så stort men det en trenger . Noe shabby trappegang fra gaten opp til resepsjonen. Ikke frokost, men det får en kjøpt rett utenfor. Likte veldig godt å bo her.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

The room was extremely small even when we paid for 3 beds. We had no view so it was a little claustrophobic. The place, however was clean and the employees were helpful. The last day they brought a new bed, but the mattress was so hard I was unable to sleep. Nonetheless, the location was perfect! It is in front of La Boqueria, close to the metro station and many other attractions.

This hostal is centrally located, at the ramblas and few steps from the subway station. Mercado de la Boqueria is right accross the street. It is located right in the middle of the action!! Great place to stay if you want to walk around the old city. Good cost benefit - rooms are quiet and very clean. Bathroom is small. There are no breakfast, but there are several options nearby.

Can't really add much that others haven't already pointed out. A few things, though: - Very comfortable beds - Very clean - Excellent, central location. Someone mentioned airport shuttle stops close by. We took the train from the airport, getting off at the Passeig de Gracia (4th stop). From there we walked 15 minutes to the hostal (seems 10% of the people on the street are dragging luggage around, 24 hours/day). Only later we found we could have transferred at the Passeig de Gracia, using the train ticket, to the green metro line in the "Universitat" direction and gotten off at the Liceu stop right outside the door of the Hostal. If walking make sure you go to 96 La Rambla, not 96 La Rambla de Catalunya! - Limited services which is why it's rated a 2-star premises but most people would rate the facilities that it does have at 4-star, I suspect - Not a good fit for "large" people. Fairly steep stairs, 3-storeys. Bathroom and shower would be very difficult for large people to use. - While the walls are very sound-proof, you do get noise from the hallway but as there are not very many units there's not much traffic in it. We were facing the back alley and did hear a fair bit of noise from there but it wasn't an issue for us. - The area is packed with people almost around the clock. My wife and I were very comfortable walking everywhere in the area late into the wee hours of the night.
"WOW.. 5Star. More like a Hotel For sure."
05/08/14 DonnaMc907 Ireland
Stayed here for 2 nights on the 5th of may, not one thing i could fault. We were in a Double room to the back of the building, it had a small balcony with sliding door giving us loads of fresh air and a lovely bright room. Beds are a dream, SO comfortable. Fresh white bed lining changed daily, as with towels. Bathroom is like that of a high quality hotel, all new and modern fixtures and fittings, shower pressure amazing with plenty of hot water, excellent hairdryer mounted on the wall in the bathroom, so no need to pack one which is great! Small Flat screen Tv and air conditioning too. Free WIFI was a bonus, signal was super and always had a great connection. The lobby also has a complementary coffee/Tea/Hot choc machine and water dispenser. As with other reviews, the location is next to none, great proximity to aero bus stop, sight seeing bus, metro and port of Barcelona. The staff are very friendly and helpful with everything. When arriving it can be hard to spot the entrance as its only a small glass doorway, the best way to find it is to get as far as the Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria (Market) and it is directly across the road beside a tapas restaurant, there's a buzzer on the wall and they will let you in, once in the hall the hostel is up on the 3rd floor, there is a small lift which is located round the 1st turn of steps on the way up :) Over all this place was fab, will most defiantly be back.
"great location, not my idea of a hostal (better)"
04/22/14 snapshotinmymind New York City, New York
The location is great - right in front of a subway stop on La Rambla and across street from the Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria. The rooms are pretty stylish for a hostel. The internet worked well and they have a free coffee machine in the lobby. The entrance is a little strange, like walking into an apartment building. The hostel occupies just one floor of the building (the 3rd floor, I think?) There is an elevator, but you have to walk up about 15 steps to reach it and it is probably the tiniest elevator I've ever used. I could barely fit with my small bag. (not a complaint, just an observation). The room itself is nice, the bed was comfortable, the water pressure was good. One negative was the safe. It was not secured to the wall or closet. Even though we could lock it, the safe itself could be taken easily out of the room. That said, I would stay here again.
"VERY NICE HOSTEL"
01/21/14 NataliaPS2014 Brussels, Belgium
the hostal BCN ramblas is situated in the heart of las Ramblas walking distance from the shuttle bus from barcelona airpoirt stop. The hostel is well located. The entrance of the building is not renovated inside but once you get at the door of the hostel which is on the third floor everything is new. The reception staff came down to pick up our luggage. This was very kind. the hostel has i think 10 rooms but they are so new, modern and clean¡¡ they have a kettle and microwave if you need to heat something at the hall. Also a coffee machine ( coffee or hot chocolate is 0,80 cents).Safety box in the room, bathtub, heating or airconditioning. Even i noticed that they have the plug converter in the wall if you are from uk. They really thought about tourist and their needs when they built and renovated the rooms. I just wanted to thank the receptionists for their kindness especially the guy from the morning who helped us with the luggage who i think is the owner. i dont remember his name. i asked him if i could print out my boarding pass and he kindly let me do it from his computer. Thanks for your hospitality¡¡ if i go back to Barcelona i will definitely go back there¡¡ Natalia

We stay in this nice located hostal early December with family of 2 kids,staff was very helpful and got us discounted hop on/off bus tour and Camp Nuo tour tickets, and give us very nice advice for restaurants around,although facing the Ramblas,but the sound proof window was enough to block the noise, Room was clean,no complain except with a big spacious room,there was not enough shelfs,tables,storage to place our belongings,just a little recommendation,over all we would go back to stay if we visit Barcelona again.
"Excellent location, clean comfortable and friendly!"
10/24/13 pdaboy Leicester, United Kingdom
Although this place is listed as a hostal, do not be deterred. It has everything you would expect of a budget hotel, is very clean, modern and friendly. We paid 65 euros per night in Oct which all things considered, was a bargain. The location is nothing short of exceptional - no more then 20 metres from the steps to Liceu metro station, right on La Ramblas. We were lucky enough to have one of the two rooms (out of 7) which face directly onto La Ramblas with a small balcony with great views into La Boqueria market and all the atmosphere of this wonderful city. There is a great cafe serving good breakfast immediately beneath the hostal and also a coffee vending machine in the reception area. If you want to be right in the middle of the action, pay a reasonable price for a clean, modern, comfortable room with great facilities then this is the place!
"Basic very clean hostal with perfect location"
08/16/13 Philippe M
Nothing negative to mention about this hostal. Due to its perfect location (on the Ramblas - in front of la bocqueria - at the exit of metro Liceu), it logically is not the cheapest. Small room but very clean and everything you need is there.
"Best for Barcelona Vacation"
07/28/13 Alex M Toronto, Canada
Perfect. the place I've stayed in so far. Clean, spacious and great location. Right on La Rambla. The Metro station Liceu is right across the street and so is the bus stop that takes you to Barceloneta. Pretty good food options near by. I got great sleeps. Beds are comfy. The hosts/workers there were very friendly, provided good service. Feels secure. Just 5/5. You should definitely stay here.
