“Well...”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

This was not a perfect place to stay. My room was dark, with a view on the window of the bulding next to the hostel (I could observe what people were doing in the opposite building...). It was not very clean though. There was no bathroom in my room. Common bathroom was quite clean.

Breakfast provided were fine - milk and cornflakes, jams and toast bread, coffee, tea etc.

The hostel was located in the neighbourhood of Rambla, so this was for sure great. The area around was amazing, lots of tapas bars etc.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with a window/balcony

Barcelona 4 Fun, although it has a silly name, was a great hostel. My boyfriend and I stayed in a private double bedroom. Although we found out that double bedroom meant two twin beds pushed together, the place was very nice. The room was not in the actual hostel, but around the corner in another building. Our room had heating, which was nice during the first week in March, a very clean bathroom, and a convenient mini fridge.
The metro is about a 10 minute walk, but we stayed around our place for the night life. There are plenty of small bars and restaurants, and the wait staffs are usually very friendly.
Overall, I would definitely recommend staying here.

This budget-hostel is very close to Rambla for a walking distance and you might be satisfied if you do not stay there without great expectations. The room and the common-bathroom was not so clean and lively but not unbearable.Seeing that the hostel has affordable price in comparison with other Barcelona accomodations around La Rambla, it can be choosen for a short-stay.

We stayed 3 nights in this hostel in double room. Located in the gothic quarter, close to Rambla and beach. Staff very polite and pleasant. Very clean. We had everything we needed and there is a full kitchen you can use. We were satisfied.

We stayed 3 nights in this hostel in double room. Actually, it was really noisy there at night, room was small with completely poor interior and facilities. Right by the window there was a canalization pipe and we could hear all the time how [--] is running down. Lack of light in the room, when the weather is perfect it seems that it's almost night. Internet was bad.
Only plus is location, it's perfect, just in few minutes from La Rambla; and one beautiful and cheerfull spanish girl on reception.

Generally, I was shocked, how people can take so much money and not invest any single penny to improve living conditions fo their guests.

I don't reccommend.

My boyfriend and I rented an apartment in June 2012. The apartment is about a ten minute walk from the main office and hostel. The only good things were the location as it is close to la rambla and has free wifi in the apartment. However it is tiny, dirty, and poorly kept. The bathtub was disgusting. We had planned to stay for 4 nights but the second day we woke up to our bags FULL of ants and the floors crawling with them. They were all over any food you had in minutes. We called the front desk and moved to a nicer hotel that was half the price and a 5 minute metro ride to la rambla. The staff were horrible when trying to get our money back. They tried to make us pay for 3 nights because we didn't give them 24 hour cancellation notice...how were we supposed to predict waking up to ants?! It took two trips back to the office trying to find someone to speak to and in the end we still had to pay for the first night even though ants were crawling out of our bags for the next 3 days and we had to pack up and move at 11 at night taking a 25 euro can ride to a new hotel and then pay to take the metro and waste time walking back to their office twice. The apartment is also extremely hot and loud due to its location. I can not speak to the hostel conditions in the main building but it is a very old shabby building and based on the way staff treat guests I would not recommend anybody stay here. It was a terrible, gross, and expensive mistake staying here. Who makes you pay when the place is crawling with ants?! Do yourself a favour and pick a nicer hotel in a quieter area that is near the metro. You'll pay less, have a nicer place to stay, and the metro is extremely convenient and fast. Our hotel was only 1.7km away and literally
half the price. Good luck!

Stayed at Barca 4 fun for three in late June. location was great, a short walk to la rambles and close to the beach. The room was basic. The high ceilings helped. It was also very hard to find. No signage on the street at all and it took quite a while to find. Staff were quite friendly though. The shared shower also didn't drain well, so the water from the person before you was still in there.
