Best Staff”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hostal Fontanella and feel the tremendous staff impacted our positive experience. Both women welcomed us warmly and assisted us in anyway possible. There are only 11 units in the Hostal, so the attention seemed individualized. We loved the homey feel and decor of the Hostal and enjoyed our private room, balcony, and sink with a shared bathroom. We were hot at night and would recommend sleeping with the balcony door open, shutters closed, and fan on. The owner's dog, Rocco, was also a friendly face to see each day. The location was great, just steps to Plaça Catalunya and La Rambla. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it.

Nice stay”

Good location, clean, comfortable

I had a pleasant stay at the Hostal Fontanella. The location is very convenient, a five minute walk to and from the aerobus Plaza Catalunya stop. There is a metro station just across the street and there are many attractions within walking distance. The bathroom facilities and our room were very clean and comfortable. Unfortunately the wifi in our room didn't work very well. That and the fact that there wasn't access to a kitchen are my only complaints about the hostel.

Superb stay!! Highly recommended!”

Three best things - firstly, the central location. Secondly, the really friendly and helpful staff. Finally, how safe I felt in the hotel.

We had a wonderful stay at this hostel, the location is perfect. A 2 minute walk to the cathedral and 10/15 minutes to the ports/beach. Everything else you at want to visit in Barcelona is easily accessed by foot. There is also a metro right outside that can take you anywhere in the city. We felt very safe and the hotel was really comfortable. The shower room is shared but we never had to wait and was always very clean. The hotel itself is on the third floor and each room has a balcony which is a lovely feature. The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly, and on hand 24 hours a day. We will most certainly return if we visit Barcelona again. I would highly recommend this place for a base in order to explore the city!

Pleasant and exciting.”

Location, feeling of safety and cleanliness.

Our stay at this hostel was brief (3 nights) but gave us (4 girls) exactly what we needed. A hostel which was centrally located, clean and safe. This hostel felt more like a home, which was very nice. The quad room was abit small but we didn't mind. The wifi works very well and is unlimited. I would absolutely recommend this hostel for young travellers.

Awesome location, clean bright room, superb shower

Awesome stay in this clean bright guesthouse located in an unbeatable location in the city center with extremely easy access to the airport bus stop (walking distance 5-7 min). Shared bathroom was perfect, clean, big and spacious. Friendly, helpful staff and host with an adorable dog. Supermarket, cafés, and shopping all around. Location is unbeatable. Bus stops and train station near by all lead to the major sights. Will certainly return to this guesthouse.
