Zoo-LoCo ArT-HoUsE

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Zooloco is an awesome, quiet place with a huge and beautiful terrace surrounded by the greenery of the Montjuic hill. Steve, the hostel manager, gave me a very warm welcome at my arrival, and spent time showing me good places to visit, eat and drink all over the city. The hostel is located in Poble Sec, a quiet and fascinating neighbourhood very close to the city center. In short: warmly recommended!

Very recommended charmful hostel. Rooms are high standard, clean with bathroom, hotel quality on a hostel price! It has a very good location, everything is easily accessable in Barcelona! I would recommend it for a longer stay too! The manager, Steve is also very nice and helpful, ask him for advices. Zoo LoCo is the perfect place if you plan visiting Barcelona alone or with friends!

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!

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.
