I would have liked to know that the room my friend and I were staying did not have a window before I arrived.


Friendly, welcoming service. The room of good size and included amenities such as a kitchen. The padlock to secure bedroom doors could be considered unsafe. The lock on the apartment door was extremely temperamental.


Very good location at the gothic area,at reasonable price the ppl running it was very helpful Everyday the public places was cleaned so hostel was kept in good contition The building and facilities was bit old

The hostel is very central, smack in the middle of the Gothic Quarter. Jandro (the host) was very friendly and welcoming. Always helpful. The hostel is also pretty comfortable, at least for a young traveler. A bit noisy because of the streets, but given the location, what can you expect? Overall, a good experience!


Awesome Location. With Mapamundo you are in the middle of the Gothic Quarter and close to everything. Nice and clean Rooms, nice kitchen and bathroom and Jandro is very friendly and helpful for any kind of questions you might have. We had a fun stay in Barcelona =) I would go again any time.


I agree with all the good things others have said about this hostel. It really is an excellent place. Jandro is a wonderful host, the room is clean and cozy, the location excellent. It's perfect for budget travellers who prefer a quiet, private setting.


Excellent location, but sometimes it is hard to find the hostel, streets look the same. Jandro is a very helpful and nice guy . Place is nice and it has everything you need, but sometimes it is loud at night, lot of bars are around. We had an excellent week in Barcelona, and really glad that we picked Mapamundo. We would highly recommended to everyone.

Accommodation for people who are to busy (exploring best, old part of the city) to observe "imperfections" which comes together with the old building and who not scared of "graffiti"on the walls, on the streets and inside building, and who not scared of "goth" type people. Very friendly and attentive/helpful personnel. Money saving place!! Clean, very simple place(with good mattress) to get your sleep after exploring the city. Not for "show off" people.

I had such a good time at mapamundo! the guy taking care of the visitors is very friendly and helpful. the location is amazing. well regarding security ... just watch yourself in some streets around barcelona. maybe some people would not give 100 % but I think for the low price ... you get super value. And helpful the guesthouse was constantly clean.


Very friendly and competend Staff. Jandro is very helpful and a very nice guy, always with good tips if been asked. Speaks perfect english. The Hostel could be loud (lots of Bars around) but at arrival on the bed is beside a sweet a pack of earplugs. In winter its moderate. In the middle of the Barrio Gotic, not far from harbour an beach.
