Overview

Coming to eat, drink or sunbathe in Barcelona? Here at Black Swan, we've got a room with your name on it! If it's food you're after, check out our free cooking classes to learn how to make the best paella in town (shh... the recipe is a secret!). We've also got free breakfast and dinner every day. If you want to practise your best salsa on the dance floor and meet other travellers, tag along to one of the free evening events (we'll show you the best clubs around). We'll take you to the Magic Fountain – one of the most famous landmarks in town – for free – and the beach isn't far away either.

Location

We're right in the centre of town, between Arc de Triomf and Plaça de Catalunya. Popular spots like Ciutadella Park are only 10 minutes away on foot. If you're keen to explore Catalonia, jump on the train at Nord Station for fast connections around the area. Touching down at Barcelona-El Prat Airport? Catch the A1 train until you reach Plaça d'Espanya and switch to the L1 for five stops where you get to Urquinaona. Then, after a four minute walk you'll be at our front door!

Rooms and Dorms

Our cosy rooms are cool and comfy – plus there's air con. We've got mixed or female-only dorms and all have shared bathrooms. No need to worry about bed linen – we'll provide that for free each day. Just give us a shout at our 24-hour reception if you want to hire a towel (or you just want a chat!).

Extras and activities

There's always something going on, whether it be a salsa class or a flamenco show (all for free, of course!). With our laundry facilities, you can chuck your T-shirts in the wash – handy after those hot dance classes. Chill out in the common area over a game of pool with friends, or grab a cuppa in the café when you need a midday caffeine boost.

    Overall a wonderful experience and probably the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at. Tons of things planned out to do for free or low cost. Fantastic and helpful staff. Nice that you get a curtain on your bed with outlet and light. Sheets could have been slightly cleaner. Neither of my different size locks fit for their lockers and had to buy one from them for 3 euros (not terrible, just mildly annoying). I would definitely stay here again!

    This visit was my second time being in Barcelona and after both I can still truly say that Barcelona holds a special place in my heart. My experience with Black Swan Hostel made this case especially so. There are so many [daily] activities put together by the hostel that it really gives visitors a full package for their stay, whether they want the touristy lifestyle or a fun social type of vibe. A very clean environment, happy and helpful staff, plus amazing fellow travelers to meet. Stay here!!

    The staff was super nice and I made a lot of new friends and loved this place! There’s a free walking tour which is nice! Only thing is that there’s no breakfast provided and a lot of people were complaining that it was listed there was. Minor issue but overall I recommend!

    This hostel felt much more homely than others I have previously stayed in, it was well kept and the staff made a big effort to engage with everyone! :))) They organised different activities each night of the week. I met some lovely people in my dorm room too, in other places I've stayed the environment can feel quite hostile. The one thing I didn't feel comfortable with was leaving my bag in a room at the hostel for the day before I could check in rather than having individual safe lockers

    En la información que aparece en las páginas, dice claramente que incluyen desayuno y cenas diarias, pero NO ES CIERTO. No incluye NADA de desayuno y las cenas son solo unos días. Están conscientes de que su página tiene información falsa, pero no hacen nada para arreglarla. El area de las duchas está sucia y tienen un blower que no funciona. La cocina no la limpian con continuidad; tuvimos que limpiarla nosotras para poder usarla (toda llena de aceite, salsas, restos de comida) muy antihigiénic
