Hostal Balmes Centro, Barcelona
The hotel look elegant and it’s clean. Close to Sagrada. We took an Uber, it cost us only €7.38 to get there. Nice place & location

Centrally located near Gothic Quarter. Ask for a room with a balcony. Tends to be a bit loud from street traffic but everything is in Barcelona! It has great character!

Good the fine print! Shared bath!
Overall it was good. Good location. However, fine print is important. We specifically booked this hostel because it's posting on said that it had a private bath. However, when we arrived, we were told we'd booked a shared bath and there was nothing they could do. It was definitely an inconvenience for our family.

Great stay, for a great price...
My stay at this hostel was as good as it gets. It's very old fashioned and the rooms are roomy. We had a triple room with our own bathroom, which was good because I hate sharing bathrooms with strangers. Anyways, the beds could've been better and I just wish our fridge worked. Overall, great stay, and it's well secured. You have to leave the key to your room with the front desk if you decide to leave, for security purposes, which I found unnecessary, but it's the hostel's policy. The area is really nice, six blocks away from La Rambla and a few blocks away from the subway system. There's restaurants closeby and also a 24 hour grocery store across the street from the hostel's building. I enjoyed my stay here, and even though it may not have been perfect, you get a good deal for what you pay.
