“Excellent hostel”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

This hostel is located in an apartment building, without any sign outside. Staff only drop by intermittently so you need to tell them when you are arriving so they can buzz you in. In case they aren't there to greet you, be sure to bring the address of their sister hotel a few blocks away, where you can go to get the key. The hostel is very clean. There is a large, bright common room and we rarely saw any of the other guests so it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Breakfast was quite good by continental standards. Staff were friendly.

Barcelona City Seven is everything it describes itself as on its website. Not luxury by any means, but comfortable, and very clean, with friendly, flexible and helpful staff.

Only negatives were that there were frequent power cuts to the building (though they never lasted more than a few minutes), and it was very hard to find as it is in a residential building with no outside sign - the only way we found it was by taking a chance on the buzzer that had 'hostel' written on it in marker.

Tip? Book directly with them to get the free breakfast - the price was as low doing it this way as with any other site I found.

My boyfriend and I book this hostel for 3 nights and we both had a good time. The lady at the hostel was very welcoming and nice. She took the time to speak some Spanish with me and would jump in the dining area to make us breakfast as soon as we would wake up. Overall, the hostel was clean and the bed was done everyday (check out the picture, how lovely!). Downside is probably the location, about 15min walk from Fontana metro station, but it didn't affect us so much. Once you are in the metro, you are on one of the most convenient line to head to the centre (L3, 3-4 stops away to the centre). Second downside is the fact that the rooms are not sound-proofed. So you hear everybody coming in and out at night...

Room Tip: Our room didn't have a window (just one opening on an internal court), so when booking, I would...

+ Very Nice hostel, close to city center ( 10 walking minutes to Diagonal metro), in front of city bus nr.58 which we took directly from placa de Catalunya. Our room was luminous and cozy, cleaned each day, friendly and helpful staff, nice balcony where to take breakfast or to have a beer at night.

- No very visible signs, you have to look very well to find it. Almost of a room of the Hostel seems to be an outhouse, without a liminous windows

Room was very clean,the big bed was excellent,best nights sleep ive had in a long time,you also have air con and a kettle. Not far from the metro stns Fontana and Gracia. Aprox 10 mins walk. We booked direct so we got FREE breakfast which was a very nice touch. Maria the hostess was very sweet and looked after us. She even let us use her iron. And every morning while we had breakfast she would go and clean the shared bathroom for us to use. I would highly recommend staying here. We will be back soon.

Room Tip: Book direct and get your FREE beakfast........otherwise its 5.90 Euros.

We intended a short stay but stayed a week. Convenient to the Fontana Metro (10 minutes) and Gracia Station (5 minutes) and also within walking distance to Park Guell (25-30 minutes). Supermarket directly opposite, newsagent next door (for metro tickets) and plenty of eating options in the neighbourhood. Room contains a small fridge and kettle. Common area has a small microwave. No other cooking facilities available. Kept beautifully clean by the hostess who also helped us with transport information and some delicious Christmas treats. While there is no reception, the management made every effort to enable our late arrival after flight delays held us back. The shared bathroom is clean and convenient.
