Property Information:

The Ideal Youth Hostel opened in the year 2000 in a typical Barcelonan city-centre-style building. It's an experienced hostel located near the famous La Rambla and next to the Opera House.

The traditional historical appearance of the facade has been maintained, while the interior is modern with a minimal industrial look, including silver concrete walls and coloured neon lights.

We try to cater to both single backpackers as well as groups, offering all that you need to help you enjoy your stay in the city.

Accommodation is offered in single rooms and private or shared rooms for two, four, six, eight or ten people. Most of the rooms have their own balcony, individual WC and free hot showers. Furthermore, the hostel provides individual lockers in each room, free of charge.

We also offer a terrace, linen, vending machines, self-service laundrette, microwave and fridge and a lounge in which you can relax.

Upon request, half- or full-board meals and lunch boxes are available.

We also offer private meeting rooms free-of-charge for groups and a separate breakfast area. Other good reasons to stay here arre our Internet, linen service, 24hr check-in, tourist information and a common living room. They're what makes customers repeatedly book with us year after year.

Come to Ideal and we'll do our best to make you feel like home.
