Property Description

Registration Number 01-2004-0184
Be Sound is a cool, modern hostel in the perfect location. With us you can easily explore Barcelona and enjoy our young and friendly environment. It’s only two minutes’ walk from Las Ramblas and the port and is located in the partying and shopping area of Barcelona.

Our hostel has great character and many chill-out areas. From our huge common room, the small but lovely roof terrace, the friendly international staff, cultural tours, spicy flamenco shows and daily tapas-tasting, it is the perfect place to hang out and meet new people.

We give you loads of free stuff, like locker with a personal key, Wi-Fi and internet, local maps, walking tours, air conditioning and dinner vouchers.

It’s also free to use our fully equipped kitchen.

We offer six- and eight-bed dorms, with 100 beds in total. There’s air conditioning and heating in all rooms - very important for the very, very hot Spanish summers! All beds include a free pillow, duvet and blanket.

Please be aware that the apartments are located in a different building but still include linen and towels.

You can use our luggage storage after check-out if you are waiting for late planes and trains. We have laundry facilities and reception is open 24 hours. Each room, as well as the front door, is locked with electronic keys, providing a safe environment during your stay.

This is the best option for backpackers and everyone who wants to discover our vibrant city. Barcelona is a never-ending dream - we invite you to have your best dream with us. View House Rules


Get to know Barcelona with us at Be Sound Hostel. By day, uncover the Barri Gòtic quarter on our free walking tour, and by night, join us for cervezas on our free pub crawl! With flamenco shows and daily tapas tasting sessions, there’s loads of opportunities to get to know the local way of life (and other travellers). We have a huge common room to recover in after a heavy night, or head up to our roof terrace to catch some Catalonian sun. On a budget? Grab a free dinner voucher at reception, or cook up some communal pasta in the kitchen.


We’re just off one of Barcelona’s busiest streets, Avinguda del Paral·lel, and steps away from nightlife and culture hot spots. The street vendors, shops and museums of La Rambla are an easy 9-minute stroll away. Beyond that, you can be roaming the streets of the Gothic Quarter (and getting your shot of the cathedral) in 15 minutes. From the airport, take the Aerobus to Plaça Espanya, then change for metro line L3. Hop off at Avinguda del Paral·lel, and we’re a 3-minute walk away – 34 minutes travel time total. From Sants train station, we’re four stops away on metro line L3.

Rooms and Dorms

Our mixed and female-only dorms come with pillows, duvets and blankets, but you’ll need to rent linen from reception. Save your feet and take the elevator up to your room, then store your backpack in your locker – we provide personal keys so don’t worry about a padlock. All of our rooms have air con, so you get a cool night's sleep.

Extras and activities

We have free Wi-Fi throughout the hostel, so you can Skype home from your bunk. Share travel stories and maybe learn some new lingo over a board game in our games room before you head out to the local bars. Our 24-hour reception is waiting to welcome you back as late as you like, or help with any questions.

    The location was excellent as it was a few steps off of the Metro and in the center of activity in the city. The bed in the 6-bed dorm room was very difficult to access because the adjoining bed did not leave room to carry a backpack to the last bed. The last bed was attached to the wall to tightly it did not leave room to turn the light switch on. The bed in the later stay was fine. The staff responded to needs very well, were very helpful with recommendations, and were very welcoming.

    the hostel had basically no one staying in it while we were there so it seemed kinda eerie, but it was a good experience we liked the beds and bathrooms and all. It definitely isn't the nicest, but it does the job. The only complaint is that the wifi barely worked, and not at all in our room, so I have no idea how it works when there's lots of people there

    Very Good

    The hostel was nice, however the washroom was very cramped and it had a dirty towel lying on the ground the entire duration of my stay. Due to the virus there was also no 24hr reception, which the page of the hostel said there would be. Otherwise it was decently located within a ten minute walk to the beach and right near a main metro station.

    The people in the mixed shared bedroom were not hostel people and I did not feel safe there. The receptionist was really nice about it and solved the problem quickly. I do not recommend woman to go to the mixed shared bedrooms.
