“Awesome location, not for demanding travelers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

It is typical charming Spanish style, old vintage buidling at the old town, with small steps, last floor..but climbing with luggages can hurts ;)
It is Hostel, with great location,so we didnt expected too much for that money-for this location wasn't expensive anyway.
Rooms are too small, we ve been three, and we couldn't even walk in room :<
there were also no space for suitcases so we had them under beds.
Problem was also in bathroom, where shower was plugged durin all 5 days we stayed there, with: "I don't want to know", but it was ugly and nasty, havin water over ankles ;#
Also while hostel was full, there r just two baths so sometimes there were "fights" in queue, waiting for ur turn to shower.
Staff was friendly and chill.
abt Barcelona I ve just excellent memories, so even some problems abt Hostel were no big deal at all :)

Hostal Nitz BCN shares the same building space as Hostal Costal. I would recommend Hostal Nitz well over Hostal Costal simply because of the amount of cigarette smoke that poured out of Hostal Costal every time I walked past the door up the stairs to Hostal Nitz, but I say pack light because Nitz is up on the 6th floor and there are no lifts so you have to lug all your stuff up and down the stairs. Just something to be aware of. The facilities at the Hostal are very nice, I had my own room and it was a nice size. The showers were clean and really the entire hostel was clean and very nice. The staff was pleasant. Internet is only in the lounge area though so you have to leave your room to check anything on the internet. For me personally that would be my only knock on the place just for privacy and security concerns. The other tenants at the Hostal were very nice and you can't beat the location.

Location is terrific - only a few minutes walk from Las Ramblas. Staff are the friendliest I've ever encountered at a hostel and really want to make your stay enjoyable. The room itself was lovely, with two small balconies, plenty of storage space, very comfortable double bed, good lighting, useful mirrors and complementary mineral water. Nice modern decor. There are two bathrooms shared between everyone in the hostel (it's only very small) but this is not a problem at all, we didn't ever have to wait. There is also a laundry room with an iron and a large living room style area with a huge TV as well as computers with internet access. The only negative point is that the entrance is up several flights of stairs so would not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues. I'd definitely stay there again! It is incredible value for money. I wholeheartedly recommend!

This hostel was good on location and being The staff was ok but not very helpful about finding good places to find food. She will basically tell you to go out and find out for yourself. If you don't like workouts you should know that this place did not have an elevater and you will have to go up at least 6-7 flights of steps. No breakfast is serced here but they do have a kitchen to cook in. Also there was a shower policy were you are not to use the shower between 23:00 - 6:00. Overall good location. P. S TAKE THE FREE WALKING TOUR, with Hannah if you can.

Great location (in the city center) but a bit difficult to find for the first time because it is in one narrow street surrounded with other narrow streets. You can get to some point by bus/metro/taxi...but than you have to walk and it's difficult if you have bags. There is no elevator. Rooms are clean and quiet, small but enough for two. I didn't like the fact that we had shared bathroom, but anyhow it was really clean. I would go back there.

Nice hostel to stay if u want to visit Barcelona... Excellent location inside the Gothic area. La Rambla is only 3/4 min and the near Metro Stations (Liceu or Jaune I) are just 6/7 min by foot. The hostel is clean and quiet, the rooms are small but enough for who just wants to rest. The bad thing is really the stairs but face it as a free leg training!

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.
