“Nice and in budget”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

Perfect location! right in the middle of old gothic part of Barcelona. Secret network of narrow streets. romantic area.
in minus: you can not get there by car or taxi so you have to carry on your bags to the hostel and more over up to the 4th or 5th floor (don't remember with one) as there is no elevator. To get the task even more adventurous the stair case is vert, very narrow. but this is the "climate" of old house in gothic part of Barcelona. You have to prepare yourself that you will hear everything what's going on in the hostel during the night. And forget breakfast, it is just not served there.
Otherwise, great place to spend night or two in Barcelona in budget way.

This hostel is on the third floor and if you have a big luggage you must carry it all the way up and then down of course, on narrow stairs. The room size is good and clean, but the mattress and a large pillow to share was very uncomfortable. Also during July it gets pretty warm and only hot air is circulating.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a cheap but reasonable place to stay in good location of las rambles and the centre town. We were impressed of how central hostel nitz was and it made our stay very enjoyable being central to everything we needed.

In close proximity to the hostel the streets are filled with many cute bars and tapas restaurants we felt spoilt for choice and didn't have enough meals in a day to try out everywhere we wanted to visit!

The hostel although was small was very clean, quiet and pleasant. As we only wanted a comfortable place to sleep and keep our luggage it was ideal, though if we had stayed longer than 4 nights we may have preferred a bigger room and balcony. I was apprehensive about the shared bathrooms but thankfully they were always clean and free whenever we needed to use them so we could really complain. We would recommend the hostel to anybody visiting Barcelona for a long weekend!

Our only critiques we could point out are that it was quite difficult to find as it is hidden in a side street with small sign above the door. We found it by chance of stumbling into it after wondering around many streets. Therefore we recommend you write down the street and mark it in a map before visiting.

Overall we had an amazing time in Barcelona it really is a wonderful city and hostel nitzs is in great location to explore all the action. If we are ever in Barcelona again we would definitely come back.

Thankyou hostal nitzs

Real value for money. For a very reasonable price you can choose your double or triple room. The rooms are small but clean. The bathroom is shared but each room has its own sink. You are given two towels. Free wif-fi is also available. There is a computer and a TV in the common area. If you have a late flight you can leave your baggage in the luggage room. The staff speaks English and are very helpful. They will provide you with a free map of Barcelona. The main advantage of teh hostel is its location. You will be in the centre of Bari Gotic, in a walking distance from all main attractions.

Stayed for 1 night in March.

Small clean, compact room with two tiny balconies and comfortable bed. Sink in the room, towels provided.
Two bathrooms on the same floor, kitchen, TV and laptop in the living room. Free WiFi.

Paid 15 quid each for a night. Great location, only problem you could face if you got heavy luggage is the staircase and lack of the lift.

As for the price and standard it's a bargain!

Stayed in a three bedroom instead of a two bed due to a miscommunication with the booking made which was an absolute god send as the rooms were incredibly small. Not sure what we would have done if it was the two bedroom, would have been stepping over one another. The location was great but make sure you turn left instead of right when exiting the hostel at night because the right side was a little bit seedy as it was close to las ramblas. There were loads of bars and restaurants around the hostel, always making it easy to find a good meal.
The hostel was more like an apartment up A LOT of stairs, if you have any sort of knee defect, are allergic to exercise or have any sort of heavy luggage, DO NOT STAY HERE. There is no elevator so it is the stairs or nothing. There were two bathrooms for the entire apartment, I was stuck a few times, having to wait for the shower during 'peak' times which was quite frustrating.
The staff weren't too helpful and I didn't feel very comfortable asking them questions. The person taking the night shift did not speak English which presented some issues.
If you want to meet people and prefer a more exciting atmosphere I wouldn't recommend this hostel but if you like to keep to yourself and want an apartment like feel in a good location, this hostel is perfect for you.

My cousin and I (both 25) stayed here for four nights. The rooms, common area, kitchen and wash rooms were all very clean. However please note that if you're looking for a lively atmosphere this might not be the place for you. It was uncomfortably quiet and the staff was pleasant but not friendly. Free use of the computer was a bonus.

Room Tip: If you're two travelers who aren't a couple try requesting a room with two single beds, as t...
