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.

    I have been backpacking through Europe for the past month. During this time, I have stayed at over 10 different hostels. I can honestly say that I had the most enjoyable experience at Black Swan. Although I was there only 1 night, one of the staff members- Gal- was super friendly and introduced me to everyone at the hostel right away. I have yet to meet such a friendly, energetic, and positive person as Gal. I am so happy that I stayed at Black Swan and have formed life long friends

    Just want to give a special shoutout to Gal who really made our trip special! We were greeted by him immediately when we walked into the hostel and soon became friends, and he showed us around parts of the city and made us feel welcomed. He truly made our trip special and memorable!! This hostel is located in the perfect place of Barcelona, and it was very convenient to explore around. The social aspect was also one of the best I’ve seen, and the pub crawls were a blast!!

    We enjoyed our stay here! The place feels quite new and super clean. Rooms have amazing AC and comfy beds with the curtain and plugs at the bed, so you can get a good sleep if you’re sober or happened to be out late! Also, location is great for everything besides the beach, but that’s only a quick scooter ride away!

    Do not come here! There are several problems with this property beginning with its cramped size. Separate bathroom and shower areas, both cramped and shower areas poorly ventilated. My mixed dorm had a leaky ac unit which dripped water all night on a hardwood floor, you can imagine the annoyance. The free dinner is hit and miss so dont book for that. There´s also no spread out space. The staff are the only redeeming quality. Everyone was nice and amazingly helpful.
