Great hostel! I had already stayed there before and I'll stay there again the next time I need to spend the night in Barcelona.


I've stay only for one night but even so it was an amazing experience. The staff is so helpfull and nice, always ready to give you tips of where to go and what to do, even in such a short time. The room was nice decorated and super clean! The shared bathroom system is very clean and there's no need to wait to use once they have 6 individual bathrooms. I'll come back for sure!!

We had a wonderful stay at the hostel and a really nice, clean and comfortable room! The staff was very helpful and friendly and everything we needed was present. Only at night and early morning there was noise (slamming of the heavy door behind our window), but we left the window open so maybe if it's closed it would be better. Definitely recommended!

Violeta Hostel (new name: Ella Hostel) is an extraordinary hostel. The staff if extremely friendly and also chats with you on the big balcony in the mornings while you are having their breakfast, which is included in the price. If you have free time and nothing more to do, you can relax on the balcony. The rooms (incl. bathrooms) are very clean. Next time in Barcelona, we'll book our room there again. That's for sure.


Person was very friendly! Amazing! We spent nice days!

The place is great! Mariana is amazing! She really made us feel very good there! The hostel is very well located, very safe (there's just a few rooms) and very clean! We enjoyed a lot!
