Ideal Youth Hostel is a great base for your trip to Barcelona – we're a sociable hostel with an amazing central location. Our roof terrace, filled with sofas and plants, is the perfect chilled-out spot to unwind, enjoy the Spanish sunshine and get chatting to your fellow travellers. And when you're feeling peckish, we can cook up delicious local dishes for you and your new mates to try, like homemade paella and tapas. Our multilingual staff love helping travellers get to know our friendly, vibrant city, and can give you free maps to get you started. We know Barcelona because we're from Barcelona!


We're in the Raval neighbourhood, just off Las Ramblas and a 3-minute walk from the heart of the Barri Gòtic (Gothic Quarter). The beach is a half-hour walk away, and you can reach the Sagrada Família cathedral and Parc Güell in half an hour on the metro.

    The location was amazing!!! Couldn't have asked for something better. Just to remind you: take your own lock with you (for the lockers) ! I didn't know you had to take your own lock with you. The toilets were small but it was okay. Overall a good hostel. My only problem was the lack of sockets in the rooms! But like i said, the location was perfect, I actually think it's the best place to be, location wise. It's in the middle of la rambla!

    Quite disappointed! Only use this hostel if you want a VERY basic place to stay in a good location. PROS: very central, Clean (the staff were constantly cleaning). CONS: kitchen was small & lacked basics (cups, mugs, kettle & plates.) I had to drink coffee out of a plastic bowl! beds were uncomfortable & wobbly. No atmosphere & no organised events to help people get to know each other. Bathroom was not nice. Toilets so small when I sat down my knees touched the door! Wasn’t worth the money!

    In a 6 bed dorm there were only 2 plug sockets and for some reason of the morning there was no running water for a shower. Apart from that, it was a fun atmosphere and the staff were helpful.

    I was stranded in Barcelona for the night and just wanted a cheap bed to sleep in. I was immediately put off by the state and smell of the lobby, check in, hang out and kitchen area. It looks run down and the kitchen was an absolute mess, despite signs hanging everywhere asking guests to care for the space... they didn't. luckily the beds and toilets were cleanish. Just to put it into perspective, I paid only 2€ more for the best hostel I have ever stayed in in Madrid.
