Hostal Baires is great value for money as long as you know what you are letting yourself in for. Communal toilet, no tv, basic breakfast, noisy environment etc. Being in the gothic quarter of barcelona for £50 a night between two of you kind of cancels out any minor problems in my opinion, the staff are friendly and helpful and...

The location of this hostel couldn't have been better. Right on a main vein inside the Barrio Gotic, easy to navigate to, close walking distance to the beach and just a few twists and turns to La Rambla or in the other direction, the 'Born neighbourhood' and about 10 mins up to Plaza Catalunya. It was basic, however the price... More

We stayed here for 4 days and expected it to be basic going on the reviews. We decided to go ahead with the booking as we were visiting Barca with friends and figured we only needed a bed.

We stayed for three nights at Hostal Baires on a team event. Afterwards, I could only possibly imagine this hostel as suitable for students or very low-budget travelers who are willing to put up with a lot of noise at an old, unkempt hostel. The bad: Very misleading website (hostelbaires.com). Take what you expect from the pictures and cut that... More

I made a reservation in Hostal Baires in August, but I cancelled it four weeks before the arrival. (Actually neither reservation was easy... I had to call the hostal three times.) The hostal did't pay my money back, moreover they didn't reply my e-mails, and although they answered my fifth (!) mail, unfortunately they 'forget' English. I had to gave... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
