“should be much more than 2 stars!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

We got a lot more than we expected during our stay. The hostal is close to everything, a 10 minute stroll to the beach, and to La Rambla and just 2 minutes to the port and you can step out into a really nice area with tapas bars and shops. Being open 24/7 and always having someone friendly present at reception was great and there was a comfortable feel whilst we were staying. Our room was great; with air-con, 2 balconies, a tv, comfy beds and cleaned everyday. It was a bit noisy at night, but we were on the side facing the main road, so to be expected. The wifi was great and there was a nice sofa area with a microwave and table also. I highly recommend it. I will be back when I next visit Barcelona.

Room Tip: choose a private bathroom

The Hostal Orleans is a very good option of best value for money. It is situated between Barceloneta and city centre, next to the Barceloneta metro station. The room was small but clean and comfortable. The staff was nice and we paid only when we left.

Booked 2 days before arriving (in high season: early July) because it was pretty much the cheapest accommodation we could find in Barcelona that was not a hostel dorm. For the price we were not disappointed. We got a basic but clean room with two beds and a private bathroom. The WiFi worked well. There was cleaning service every day (which I did not expect in something calling itself a 'hostel'). Good location, right across the street from the train station (there's no direct trains to the airport from that station but it's an easy transfer staying on the same platform at Paseig de Gracia station); when we were leaving it literally took us less than 3 minutes from our room onto the train. A 10 minute walk from La Rambla, 15 minute walk from the beach and a metro station nearby. The district behind the hotel is very lively, full of restaurants. Would definitely recommend.

The Hostal is very well located and extremely clean. It's been recently renewed.
The attention is provided by it's own owners, Josefina, her husband and her son Andres, also Ramon, Triny, everybody else.
We'll be back.

Directly across from the train station which is very handy when arriving from the airport. Walking distance to la rambla and the gothic quarter. We even walked to la sagrada familia from here.
Room was comfortable, however painfully slow internet.
Good bathroom and bed, very friendly staff even though they had limited English and we had almost no Spanish. Big thanks to Ramon, always smiling and having a joke. Made us feel very welcome as soon as we stepped in the doors.

This place more than met our needs (sleep, shower) and was in a great location. The room was simple, clean, and comfortable. Bathroom was very nice. The staff was pretty nice and helpful though the language barrier was definitely present. Our room faced the inner courtyard so the nights were quiet. Staff is there 24 hours/day to buzz you in the front door. As others have noted, there are quite a few stairs to climb to the hostal with no lift. You leave your key in a key cabinet when you leave with the other rooms' keys, but we didn't have any issues (there is also a small lock box in the room to secure valuables). We would definitely stay here again if we return to Barcelona, it was a good value.

The hostal located 10 min walk from Plaza Colon (edge of Rambla).
Rooms are clean with all necessary amenities.
There is wifi but not always reach the room.
Breakfast places can be found easily nearby.
The big disadvantage is the need to carry your luggage over 60 stairs to your room.
