Booked a room with my own bath and balcony. Cheap, clean and nice staff. Even got take-away breakfast at 4 in the morning. But a bit noise from the airport, a snoring neighborh and loud birds in the trees outside

I needed a hotel for one night at the airport, but finding a large convention in town, there weren’t any rooms available except for this hostel. I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised. The location was fairly close to the airport, I took the subway for 2 stops and walked about 5 minutes to the property. It is a very large, modern facility. I had booked a single room that was extremely large- it had 2 sets of bunk beds, tv, a patio, and a private bathroom. Breakfast was included and it was served cafeteria style with an adequate choice. For a 1 night stay near the airport, this is a good choice - clean but not luxurious.

The hotel is well structured. The staff is competent. Although we had no management problems, all in all it is a good hotel to make a holiday in Barcelona. If the hotel manages to improve on internal management issues, it would be one of the best in Barcelona. You pay relatively little, but it's a good hotel.

I'm staying here at the moment. Just don't do this. The bus N16/N17 will give you much better choices to stay in hotel somewhere in better neibourhood and place. It is hell damn noisy. You can hear someone snorring in other room, and I am not talking about those shouting teens in the other floor. I have no idea how it is not controlled by anyone in reception. Higiene is doubtfull too. It is only the location and price that makes it atracctive.

Really a hostel don't expect something special. But price quality wice is excellent. Cheap and clean room. Breakfast was OK, but not lots of choose. Coffee sas bad quality. Metro not too far. Good option if u have an early or cancelled flight

We had a late landing at BCN and stayed over for one night. Very basic, but nice and clean. Easy access from the airport and only 5 minutes fra the metro to get to downtown Barcelona. Fast check in and a helpful staff :-)

The Certre Esplai Hostel is a fine stay near the Barcelona airport. There is nothing fancy about it, steel bunk beds, metal 1/2 depth desk attached to the wall and no toiletries. But, that’s what you expect from a hostel. Towels were 1 Euro per person, and you make your own bed. But it was clean and roomy and there is a bathroom for each room. It is very easy to get there from the airport and the parking is behind a security gate. The hostel didn’t really look much like the website pictures so I had to drive around before recognizing the sign.

Cheap & Cheerful but what I really like about this hotel is the accessibility from the hotel to Barcelona city centre via Public transport or Taxi which shouldn’t be more than €20 Euros depending on what time you are travelling before evening is best.

Big complex located in Barcelona suburb with not a good atmosphere and weed to feel everywhere, little bit noisy place. Hostel is not so bad (for this price). Negatives - rooms with bunk beds, wrong glass door in bathroom so water from shower flows down the floor to the toilet. Positives - good and rich breakfast, 7 minutes to metro station.

The service was not very attentive. The place leaves things to be desired. The bathroom is left messy and the kitchen sometimes equal. About the location, it is quite well connected. the city a charm, yes!
