We felt in love with this lovely hostel. We dont even feel like in a hostel, we felt more being in a home. Jandro was super helpful and friendly to us. He showed us with a map Barcelona and made us feel sure and welcome. The hostel is very near to the beach and to the Ramblas and also Via Laietana. It was super clean and everything was there like a hairdryer, cosmetics even. In the kitchen everything for cook was there so nothing was missing. It was the perfect stay for us and we will definitely

Jandro was very helpful and welcoming. He made us feel at home from the moment we walked in, showing us the best restaurants and sites to see in Barcelona. He was always available by phone whenever we needed him, and was more than willing to answer questions. The hostel was in a very convenient location, with the beach, restaurants, metro, and great sights close by. Mapamundo also felt very homey with spacious rooms. I would definitely stay here again!

Stay here. If you do anything right in your life, stay here. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, even searching for items that I forgot about and returning them to me on their day off. Staying here is like staying at home.

Quiet, central location for those not wanting/needing a social experience with other travelers. Great, helpful and friendly staff. Walk outside the door right into the Gothic Quarter and into the Barca mix!

This was well situated and room was clean but the bathroom was horrible. Unfortunately it seemed to be occupied at all hours (despite barely anyone around) so you could barely get an opportunity to go to the loo. The doors were also not well secured and very thin - so as we were next to kitchen there was a lot of noise.

We enjoyed everything. Only the floors could be a lot cleaner.

Great location, so many small bars and tapas within a 5 min walk. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was spacious and simple. Kitchen had everything you needed. If your looking to meet people this place lacked atmosphere but it's a great stay in Barcelona.

Lovely hostel and Jandro is great, he explained to us in great details where to go and what to see in Barcelona. The only big issue was that we only had 1 set of keys so we had a hard time planning things if we ventured off on our own. 6 people had to share 1 bathroom which was a bit trickey at times. The shower head needs to be held by hand so we had to constantly turn off the shower to apply shampoo, conditioner, etc. the beds were very hard and the pillows we're a bit small.

Perfect Location, very friendly staff. Our room was very small though and didnt have a window, which definitely was a minus.

Great location and staff. Go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and entertainment and major transportation is walking distance.

This is a great hostel! The location is ideal in the small streets of Barri Gothic with loads of restaurants and bars around. The staff was very helpful and the even though the kitchen and living room was small it was enough since there are never so many people living there. No 24H reception but the area feels safe to around in the nights (and early mornings). A bit noisy at nights but with the provided ear plugs you sleep well enough. I would definetely cone back!

Our two-night stay in Mapamundo was very good - the small hostel in the gothic quarters has a very nice, homely feel. Guests live like roommates, since the staff is not around all the time; it might sound troublesome for some, but it really wasn't, since the staff was within reach around the clock incase needed. The hostel is quite hard to find due to the VERY anonymous door, but the staff did an excellent job at providing sufficient information for finding the place, and a phone number to call.
