This place is crawling with bed bugs, the management know about it and will not do anything. When tried to find someone to check out and get my money back no one could be contacted. What ever you do don't stay here. The worst hostel in the world!

Horrible, I would never stay there again. We stayed for two nights and went to another hotel as we couldn't sleep in beds full of bed bugs!!!! The guys in reception were not very surprised when we brought a plastic cup with bugs we catched...

The worst hostel in the world. I had the most horrific bed bugs and when I complained the manager was almost uncontactable and after about an hour waiting for him, when I spoke to him on the phone he refused to meet me to discuss and heavily implied that he didn't believe I had been bitten. I asked to meet... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights in December 2015. The guy at reception was very friendly and helpful and down to earth and quite funny! The room was large and had wifi and a large wardrobe for putting your stuff in. The showers were clean. The interior of the building looks amazing! It is also centrally located, next... More

Barcelona 4 Fun was located right in the heart of Barcelona. It was located a 5-10 minute walk to the city center, around an 8 minute walk to Las Ramblas, and a 15 minute walk to Playa de la Barceloneta. You have to walk up around 4-5 flights a stairs to get to the hostel, but the building is quite... More

I stayed in this hostel for two nights in a double room with a shared bathroom. Despite generally good service and a good location, staying at this hostel could not have been a worse experience. Let me explain. After the first night, I noticed I had a small rash on my neck. It grew throughout the day and I discovered... More

There's so many things wrong with the place! STAY AWAY!!! Firstly the owner is the rudest person I have ever met! Shouted at nearly everyone he spoke to and no inclination to be helpfully/polite in any way! They only accept cash (not visa as described on website). The apartments are not in the main building (with the grand looking entrance... More

I was fine. Clean rooms and helpful staff. Excellent location: close to the Barceloneta beach (15 minutes walk), the Rambla and the metro line (5 min). Ideal for groups of friends and young couples who do not have much expectation. Very good quality / price ratio.

...as I stayed in the Gotika area. So I only 10mins walk away from Plaza Catalunya, 5mins from La Rambla, 2 mins from La Playa. When you book, make sure you have what you have asked for. Also the staff was friendly, and they are genuinely helpful.

You want something that's really cheap and at a great location! Do not take your shoes off while in the room, bring Raid to kill the roaches (woke up to a huge one running accross the table near me) This was our first AND LAST hostel experience. Never again.
