Hostal Goya
Ranked #48 of 307 Barcelona B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 June 2013 via mobile

Stayed in hostal Goya for 2 days with my boyfriend in a double room with private bath. Considering this has the title hostal I assumed it would be like the ones I've previously stayed in before but it's a lot nicer and more private.

The room was TINY though; if you have a regular sized luggage it will not fit especially with 2 luggages open on the ground. Thankfully we both brought carry ons and it was still cramped for space.

The place is designed similar to Ikea or really simplistic styles which I liked and the bathroom was ok with a closed shower and all the necessities (ie hairdryer). Could still make the bathroom a little bigger though.

Overall, service wasn't bad, the staff gave us maps and directions to the places we needed to see. We were also able to book tours and taxi transfers with them, with no trouble.
The hostal is split into different floors sharing it with other local apartments. Our floor had a little lounge with tv, Internet, and free coffee.

I'm not sure if I would book here again now that I have a certain idea of the surroundings but this place I think may be quite competitive in terms of price compared to more expensive surrounding hotels.

A really good place to land, especially if you are looking for a central location and good value for money. The friendly hotel staff provide lots of information and recommendations. While basic, the rooms are clean and modern and there is a common area with couches, a TV, computer and tea/coffee making facilities. We had never been to Barcelona before, and staying at the Goya helped us ease into this exciting city with little effort.

I recently stayed two nights. Was booked in another B&B but they underwent renovations therefore the owner rebooked me here at Goya, I got the single room which size wise, it is very tiny and basic, but adequate and comfortable if you are not going to be in your room much. The single room came with a sink while the rooms on that floor share a common area (with a computer, some tea/coffee facilities, a tv and a couch) and a shared bathroom, which the cleanliness was appreciated. The most positive of my stay was the receptionist (pau? Forgot her name-she works nights). Upon my arrival, she showed me where we were on the map and pointed out a few attractions close-by and even made some dining recommendations. This was very handy for a newbie like me to Barcelona. Location wise its convenient as well, situated close to major road jntersections and very close to the main catalunya square (where aerobus from airport drops u) and to the famous La Rambla. I will certainly look to stay there again next time but see if they have bigger rooms.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the common area and shared bathroom for less noise,

Fantastic location beside most of the sights. Three min walk to aerobus stop.
Good recommendations from friendly hotel staff for restraunts and sightseeing.
This hostal is a cross between a youth hostal and small boutique hotel. Rooms are nicely furnished but basic and has common areas with couches,televisions. Perfect base for a short stay in Barcelona.

I stayed in this hostel one night with my boyfriend, and one night by myself. It is in a very convenient location; easy walk to the metro and airport shuttle bus stop, even with rolling luggage. Also an easy walk to the Rambla, Old City, Barcelona City Museum, lots of department stores, shopping and restaurants. It is very safe; the front door and doors to separate floors of the hostel are kept locked at all times (you will receive a key when you check in). The rooms were spotlessly clean but very small and basic (bed, small desk, bathroom, no decorations, basic white paint on the walls). The front desk personnel spoke English well and were helpful with directions to tourist destinations and restaurant recommendations. There is an "all-you-can-eat" salad/buffet place across the street if you want something cheap, filling and quick. The furniture in the common areas is definitely worn out but useable. There is a computer on each floor that can be used by guests for no additional fee. If you plan to be out exploring the city all day, this is a good option for a safe, clean place to sleep.

We were this downtown hotel in 07/2011

positive points :
- The location of the hotel : full central, and close to main metro station
- The design of the room was very modern and original, especially the bathroom

negative points :
- The room in which we were was quite small, the bed and the wall were separated by only a meter away. But I think that the other rooms are larger, we could take a look on some during the laundry service.
- The completion of the room door was not well adjusted to the ground, leaving a gap of 3 cm from the ground, which made any noise from the hallway being well heard in the room.
- no breakfasts.

I just stayed 2 nights in Barcelona in this hostal, after I had a weekend with the family in an apartment, and I can definitely recommend it.
The room was good, newly renovated and the bathroom small but sufficient and all very clean .
for the price , definitely worth, and considering the location, absolutely perfect
Unfortunately had the window open and some people made a lot of noise while coming back to the hostal, but nothing I can blame on the hotel , rather the guests
