                  Incredible Stay”

                  It was by chance that we chose La Isla and I don’t regret a thing. The staff is genuine and friendly. They are excellent at communicating, especially if you must check in outside of hours of service. Everything was tidy and clean. The metro is close by and it’s a a few feet from the door to see the Arc de Triomf. There is a postbox at the corner nearby. I was really pleased with everything La Isla had to offer and I’d go back to stay in a heartbeat.

                  My friend and I stayed 4 nights at this place. We had the room with private bathroom and a small balcony to the street. The room was looking nice with fitting decoration and was bigger then I imagined it to be. The lady on the reception was very friendly and recommend us some nice places and restaurants. The place is really amazing, you are in one of the best places in the city. The only thing which has not be so nice was the noice of the street because there is always traffic. But in total a nice place to stay for less money.

                  Superb value hostal located just a few minutes walk away from El Born and the old town, but far enough away from the tourist crowds that engulf the city. The single room I was in was of a good size, spotlessly clean and the wi-fi functioned perfectly. The bathroom was large and clean. The room I was in does suffer from some external noise, but nothing a pair of earplugs wouldn't keep out. Overall, it was very good value for our stay and will definitely come back again.

                  The value for money, the location and nice staff

                  I stayed at La Isla Hostal for two nights, and I had a great stay. As I spent most of the days outside, I just used the place for getting ready as well as sleeping, and for those purposes it was great (especially the cheap price taken into consideration). There might be a bit of noice from the traffic/metro, but I managed to sleep perfectly fine either way. Close to the city center and a lot of nice bars and restaurants.

                  free wifi, clean room, convenient location

                  The location is very convenient, in the city center, close to metro station. It is easy to walk to some tourist spots. The hostal provides free wifi service as well. Helpful staff who are happy to tell you the places around and where to go. However, the window in my room cannot be opened conveniently, which makes me keep the window shut and fresh air cant get in.

                  Staff came down to Arc de Triumf to pick me up when I got lost and could not figure out the place, Flexible check-in and check-out, Personalized travel suggestions

                  Had a memorable stay at the La Isla Hostal. The single rooms are quite small but good enough for a night's stay and certainly great value for the tariff. The best aspect of the hotel is its Location, which would particularly suit travellers making a short trip to the city. Needless to say, they warned me well in advance about the imminent theft and guided me on places to visit, which was of great help. The shared bathrooms are very clean.Had a disturbed sleep as I am very sensitive to noise, but the other aspects about the place score highly in favour of La Isla. I would recommend this for all those on a budget, yet do not want to stay in a dorm and be assured of safety and timely help from the staff.

                  A bug inside our room! NOT RECOMMENDED!”

                  The position it’s good, but the room is terrible! We have found a bug in our room and this is very disgusting. The cleaning was terrible because our bed sheets weren’t changed, but they were only redone. There were dangerous windows and the electrical outlets are broken. The bath and the mattress were discreetly good. It was a terrible holiday, but thank goodness that we were in the hotel only the evening and the morning. The breakfast was terrible: there isn’t milk, coffee and in the fridge we have found a piece of an eaten cake! There were only packaged muffins. Bad quality price ratio!

                  Too Expensive for No A/C”

                  Cons -no a/c -way to much money to not have a/c -hot and humid -noisy from the street -shared bathroom either smelled like a fish take that hasn't been cleaned or leaked all over pros -very friendly staff -refrigerator and snacks -outside patio -cleaned room daily I would recommend my friends to stay here, but if this was their last resort. Try to find something better because it's just way to hot in the middle of July to not have air conditioning

                  Private bathroom, Near MTR, Price

                  Within this price range, La Isla Hostal is comparatively balance with cleanness, convenient location, private bathroom, friendly and polite staff. Although they spoke little English, they were willing to help. Room has been tidied up on a daily basis. It's about 2 minutes walk to MTR station, and 15 minutes walk to the major nearest attractions.

                  location, price

                  My partner and I stayed at Hostal La Isla for four nights in October 2012. The main advantage of this hostal is the location: on the doorstep is the Arc De Triomph and its metro station and other tourist attractions including Las Ramblas and Placa Catalunya were about a 15 minute walk away. The hostal is great if you want to be within easy reach of the old town, we spent all of our evenings exploring the many great tapas restaurants and jazz bars in the old town. The hostal was also very clean and the staff were friendly. We had a private double with a bathroom and it was very simple but exactly what we needed and the price was brilliant - very good value for money! The one complaint we do have is the noise. The rooms have very thin walls (and ceilings and floors) and our room seemed to be above an office where the phone was constantly ringing. In addition to this, sleeping in is virtually impossible as the staff tend to shout to one another from one end of the hostal to the other. Having said this, it didn't affect us too much and we would definitely stay here again.
