Reviewed 4 April 2014

Wow, what a nice terrace! Ideal for barbecues with friends in the summer, or just simply to have breakfast before heading to the city. It's a nice quiet place a bit out of the tourist zone but fairly close to the center of the city (15 minutes by walking). Jonatan was also very helpful with the hints about things to visit. I had a huge bed by my own, however the price for my single room (room B) was the same for one person or for two, so it's ideal for couples. Kitchen is common but very well furnished and organized. Private bathroom was perfectly functional, but bring your own shampoo, because there was only liquid soap for hand washing. Wifi was steady and the shared PC upstairs was also very nice to have. In conclusion I would definitely recommend this place for staying in Barcelona and if I'll be back I would chose it over other options.

I did not mind this small inconvenient at all, I like this kind of challenges, but it's only honest to mention because some might not be able to live with it: last 5 minutes by walking to the hotel are on a quite steep slope, maybe about 30 degrees up-hill. Consider it "fitness included" :D

Excellent location, in 10 minutes walking distance from Paral-lel metro station. Wi-Fi in rooms is free of charge. Lots of hi-quality cafes and restaurants in the area -- ask manager Steve for advice!

Barcelona is an Awesome city to visit.
If you are traveling to Barcelona, I highly recommend Zoo Loco. Has local charm, a great location and excellent service. The staff are fluent in both Spanish, English, Portuguese.

I spent six wonderful days in Barcelona. Everything was great: weather, city, food and the place where i stayed. Location is excellent, close to metro and buses. The neighbourhood is very quiet, and there is an amasing park just couple minutes of walking. The National Museum of Barcelona is 10 minutes away.
Rooms are large, with a nice big bed. Prices are very affordable. The roof terrace is amazing, the best place to relax on a sunny day.
The most important thing the staff is very pleasant, friendly and ready to help. I will recommend this place for anyone visiting Barcelona. You will not regret.

Steve and staff provided wonderful accommodations in a really cool modernista building (the roof top terrace!!). The location was perfect (Poble Sec) and was easy walking distance to the Magic Fountain, Plaza Espagna, plenty of (affordable and non-touristy) eateries, close to the metro, Joan Miro Museum, Montjuic Park, Royal Palace, etc etc. Huge, clean kitchen, too. Did I mention the terrace?

This is a great place to stay. I was there for a whole week in September just after it had opened. The en-suite room was perfect with a nice big double bed. It’s a cool old building which has been newly refurbished. There is a massive rooftop terrace (it couldn’t be any bigger!!) which was great for hanging out in the sun or chilling out at night. Make sure to check out the hammocks at the front from where you have great views of Barcelona and a unique view of Sagrada Familia on the other side of town. The kitchen facilities were probably the best I’ve seen in a guesthouse and were spotlessly clean every day. The staff were really helpful and professional and the whole place is very well run. Poble Sec is a great barrio with a very chilled out atmosphere. There is a beautiful plaza about 3 blocks from the guesthouse which has really nice restaurants with great lunch time deals. Less than 5 minute walk from the guesthouse and you are at Teatre Grec in Montjuic Gardens which is a must see for Barcelona. Also its only a 10/15 minute walk from Rambla de Raval so all the main sights are easily reached. All in all I definitely recommend this place for anyone visiting Barcelona and I hope I’ll be back there soon!!
