Property Information:

Mambo Tango hostel is your peaceful home away from home in Barcelona!

Awarded by Hostelworld customers the #1 Best Hostel in Spain 2008, 10th Best Hostel Worldwide 2008, and, as part of the Sant Jordi chain, 2nd Best Large Hostel Chain 2011, Mambo Tango provides a peaceful environment perfectly located in the heart of the city. In Mambo Tango youll have a familiar, friendly and youthful atmosphere where youll find us ready to help whenever you need.

Were perfectly located in the heart of the city, a few minutes walking from the famous Las Ramblas, Plaza Catalunya , Barceloneta beach and Montjuic mountain - where you can relax and enjoy an amazing panoramic view of the city. All of the most interesting places in Barcelona - museums, parks, shops, theatres, pubs and much more - are just around the corner!

We have the best-quality services, with two-to-eight-bed mixed dorm rooms, lockers, shared facilities (including lounge, home cinema and kitchen), organized activities, free internet and Wi-Fi and much more. Linens, large lockers and internet are included in the price and our lounge is so comfortable that youll want to spend the whole day inside and might even forget about going out. We also provide you with nice music, good vibrations, and lots of movies and books.

Were backpackers like you. If you are someone who wants to make new friends, have a beer, enjoy the hostel atmosphere, and discover Barcelona, then come and enjoy! Our success is based on the respect of others. Here you can feel at home, meet other people and have long conversations, fun activities, good music, a nice, quiet night's sleep and staff who treat you like a part of the family.

We offer various activities and parties throughout the week but were not a party hostel; that means were very strict about noise at night. Were happy if you enjoy Barcelona's night life but were also very concerned about allowing people to rest.

Located in Poble sec, a district with a lot of very old architecture, the hostel's building was constructed in 1893; that make's our home a very special place. Its a multicultural and colourful district with many local restaurants providing traditional 'tapas', pubs with cold beer, discos with good music, amazing dance parties, and much more.

Mambo Tango is all about providing good travelling experiences and was founded on the ideals of respect and high standards. This has been our continuing strength, and we wish to keep it that way. We do not tolerate, under any circumstances, disrespectful and disruptive behaviour; in particular poor behaviour resulting from irresponsible drinking. In short, we don't like disrespectful people! If this isnt okay with you, there are plenty of other places in Barcelona that can fulfil your needs.

Come, see for yourself! Were waiting for you!
Youll feel at home and will want to come back, that's for sure. By the way, don't forget to tell your mom that you won't be coming home!

    I think what makes us special are the extras we offer our guests. We're a family hostel and our knowledgeable and friendly staff always have good recommendations for restaurants, bars and day-trips out of Barcelona.
    We're located very close to La Rambla and the Monjuic area - both are cool places, well worth checking out. I also usually tell our guests to go to Quimet and Quimet -- it's an awesome place for tapas and for meeting people.
    We cater for people with special needs or disabilities. We always give them great rooms and do what we can to make sure all of our visitors are comfortable and having a good time!

    Super friendly staff giving more than they were asked. Thoughtful allocation of the rooms. My email went unanswered before I got there but my booking was all fine and I was greeted by name when I arrived. Very comforting after a very long flight. Thanks.
