“Great and Inexpensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2013

The rooms were stylish and small, but very functional. The staff was accommodating. We have no complaints and would stay there again! (There are a lot of stairs.) The location was awesome... On Las Ramblas, next to a metro stop.

the best things about the hostel are its location (on La Rambla) and the very friendly staff.
it's close to almost everything. the metro is right outside and the amazing market "la boqueria" is only a few minutes up the street. it is also close to the Catedral de Barcelona which is a must see.
the rooms are small but clean, and the breakfast is very free and very good.
the last time I was there the place was under renovation and it smelled of paint but that's just temporary.
I would have a couple of suggestions: do find a way for the rooms with no windows to be aired properly and above all please use better pillows, it's not very relaxing to wake up with back pain.
other than that no complaints. it is a great place to stay while in the amazing city of Barcelona.

Location is so good, everything is 10min away top! Stuffs are very friendly and kind. Breakfast was so fresh and good every day. Rooms are a bit small but very clean. I will recommend it to everybody. I had a group of 20 people age 17-65 and everybody was satisfied :)

My staying in hostal (24-27 January 2013) was pretty good: the rooms has been renovated and are cleaned daily, staff was very friendly, breakfast was ok (especially for those who is on the diet) I think it is a good ratio price-quality. Location is great! The only disadvantage is that rooms are small for two persons. The location is more than suitable and great.

Dear Guest,

We have read your comments on TripAdvisor and we would like to thank you for your lovely words.

As you pointed out, Hostal Mare Nostrum has been renovated and refurbished, so all rooms are brand new. Now they are more comfortable, and the space is efficiently distributed. Rooms are not very big but they are very nice for short stays in Barcelona City center: right in front of Liceu Metro Station!!

Once again, thank you so much and we look forward to welcoming you soon!!

Best regards,

Artur Artigas

The room was small for 4 persons. Clean rooms
Beautifull view at the Ramblas, noisy.
Reception offered not much service and their english was poor.
Breakfast was very basic, tables small and room not very comfortable and looked a bit smudgy. Vieuw from breakfast-room at te Ramblas was beautifull.
