Loved it. Everyone was so very nice - sweet and kind. It was my very first night in Barcelona and I was a bit disoriented with 2 suitcases (it's a long story) and they helped with that - holding them all day when i traveled the next day. lovely outdoors space, room with a balcony over a quiet street just a bit of a walk from the city centre. Fantastic.

We had a lovely stay at Ella hostel and the staff was super nice and welcoming! We were so satisfied with our stay!!!


Such a beautiful hostel! Our rooms and bathrooms were better than most hotels we've stayed in. Location was perfect. Staff were friendly, welcoming and really helpful :)

The breakfast was nice surprise, that it was included. The staff was very nice, there were enough showers and toilets that you never needed to wait for your turn. Very quiet place at night, eventhough the walls are not soundproof and during daytime you could hear almost everything. But I really enjoyed myself there, I stayed for 6 nights.

Very comfy hostel. The location was quiet and a bit of a walk away from Plaza Catalunya, but the atmosphere was wonderful. The terrace is a great place to have some coffee and read or for breakfast. This hostel is most definitely meant for travelers who want a quieter more relaxed environment. Room and bathrooms were in excellent condition and the receptionists were lovely!


My partner and I stayed for three nights at the end of May. The hostel was very accommodating, we had a late flight and they allowed us to arrange a late check in. The room was large and clean. The showers were clean and there was always hot water. Breakfast was very simple- shop bought muffins and croissants etc. Only complaint was the amount of noise from about 8am, our window faced onto the circulation courtyard. My partner slept through and it was nothing some ear plugs couldn't solve!

We had an extremely pleasant stay in a quiet, relaxing little boutique hostel. Our private twin bunkbed room was beautifully decorated and all staff were very friendly and helpful. The only thing that could have been improved was the breakfast, as toast the size/hardness of croutons and pre-packed croissants didn't live up to the quality of the rest of the hostel.
