Property Description

Mambo Tango Youth Hostel is your peaceful home away from home in Barcelona! 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!

Mambo Tango innovates with a modern service of design and privacy for guests. One new shared room with private cabins, satellite TV for each with international channels and personal headphones to make your stay a unique experience.

Also we have the best-quality services, lockers, shared facilities (including lounge, home cinema and kitchen) and organized activities.
Free Wi-Fi, breakfast, hot drinks, bed linen and towels are included in the price.

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.

Mambo Tango reserves the right to pre-authorize the card of the person who made the reservation, this means that Mambo Tango makes a small charge to the card to verify that the card is valid

Special Promotion for reservations of groups over € 950: The transfer from the airport to the hostel will be on the house!

Promotion for hen parties for reservations over 8 people will be given a limo ride to enjoy the city!

    Lovely place! Nice brekkie, Sangria night on Thursdays and Fridays when you get free Sangria 8.30-10.30 or 11pm. Coffee, water and apples always available for free! Wifi doesn't work very well in the room (but fine in the reception area, maybe also one floor down in the living room! I preferred to stay up in the reception area. Good place to sit there as well). Three recycling bins just outside the kitchen. Lovely staff! All good :)

    Just fantastic in almost every way (the only negative were the showers being kinda cold). Especially loved the beds and air-conditioned dorms.

    The staff was very friendly and I enjoyed my stay here. My only complaint, and it's not a big one at all, was that showers only run for 20-30 seconds and then you have to press the button again.

    Perfect location!! It is near the beach, Las Ramblas, Mount Montjuïc & so much more. The staff was always very friendly & welcoming. Breakfast was okay, and the WiFi was quite slow. While there, the (only) toilet for my broke for my entire stay (nearly a week), meaning a majority of people had to venture downstairs to use the bathroom. It definitely wasn’t ideal, and I wish the problem was handled sooner. Overall though, recommend this place for the location & the excellent customer service!

    The hostel was basic but had everything you needed. Staff were friendly and helpful, was right next to a metro station which made getting around easy. Only complaint was we were in a room with two old men and as two young girls it’s slightly uncomfortable.

    Staff was super friendly and helpful but the bathrooms just really were uncomfortable to be in and use. Wallace are super super thin as well not sure if that’s common in Europe but I heard everything.

    Mixed feelings about this hostel. Location is right next to nice tapas bars and the free breakfast in the morning was fine (toast, cereal), but it totally lacked atmosphere. Turns out the social area is down the stairs and it was just a dark, dingy room where everyone was asleep on the couch? LOVED the staff who made it feel homely and it did the trick, fairly clean showers, only one tiny mirror for big room. Free towels and sheets, no curtains. Definitely not a party hostel!

    Security is good, staff however didn’t know or understand much English, hostel was pretty clean and offered free breakfast but we didn’t partake, hostel was empty but we were still placed in the attached flat next door, room was freezing cold, asked for a heater we were given 2 table cloths instead, asked 3 times for heat and no one listened. Bathrooms were pretty grubby and always blocked , also they let hordes of kids stay over in single rooms causing a ton of noise. Would not recommend.

    This Hostel is a SCAM!! Don’t book with them! You’ll be sleeping on the street. I booked a bed in a 9 shared room for the price listed in I got a full confirmation by email and when I showed up for checkin they said there was a mistake with 'the system' and I have to pay 65 euros for the night!!!. I was scammed as well as other 40 people, we called the police, they said they couldn't do anything. Hostel employees way too rude, they don’t give a f*ck. We lost our day in Barcelon
