“Much worse than I had expected”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

The room was extremely small and there was no place to put our things, just some small shelves. Actually, it didn`t look the way it did on the photos.
And we couldn`t use the washbasin in our private bathroom as there was no hot water. So we had to use the sink in the shared bathroom.
Besides, we couldn`t sleep well due to the loud unpleasant noise coming, if I am not mistaken , from some big device on the wall outside near the window.

But the hostel has some important advantages: the location perfect for exploring the city, very friendly and helpful staff, cleanliness, large and comfortable bed and good bed linen.

I booked a single room in january.
Very very friendly staff, good location (near Plaça Catalunya, near metro stations), clean shared bathroom
The room was basic, but clean. No noise at night.
I would recommend it for solo travelers

Had the room with the bathroom for three nights. This is for sleeping only. It is small, but comfortable. The bathroom fan didn't work. And of course, you have to understand that there won't be a tv in the room. I really like the fact that there is someone at the desk 24 hours. The staff were super friendly, and you can't beat the location. I would stay there again.

Arrived Barcelona with no accomadation booked!!.
Found online Somnio. The staff were great, with help and local knowledge on the local area sights and metro stops to get you around. Booked for 2 nights stayed 5. The hostel provided numerous share bathrooms, that were very clean. Central to metro to explore Barcelona. Affordable rates, 24hr reception with linen and towel.

Room Tip: Backroom double bed.

Somnio is a simple and clean hostel, with very friendly staff and located in a great area in Barcelona..! We had an awesome stay at Somnio. If you are looking for something really straightforward - bed, towels, sheets, clean toilet, stay at Somnio.

The hostel is in the centre of town en is rated with an 8.2 and that is misleading to my opinion. It was very noisy, very small and we asked for an other room, But that was not possible, despite THE fact that there were other rooms available.

I stayed for two nights at this hostel sharing dorm- female. Both front desk staffs are friendly and very helpful.

The room a bit to small to fit 3 deck beds, I'm expected spacious and a bit noisy during the night but I'm fine with it. Will stay here again for sure the next visit in Barcelona as all walking distance.
