I'm not glad of my stay there. The room was clean, but we were asked for a room with 2 beds, and we get one bed. One guy, who works there said us that the system automaticly choose the beds. It's stupid and superficial. The wi-fi was awful. The breakfast - poor. The other time I will choose another place.

Considering the price i payed, we did not get value for money. No Windows, no door to the bathroom, and a door that did not close to the toilet. No aircon, no internet, noice from the washing machine and the compressor 24 h.

Stayed there during short city break, didn't expected much for the price I've payed and got very positively surprised. Only short walk from town, very clean and communal areas nicely decorated. The price also included breakfast!

Despite being somewhat older than their normal clientele, we were warmly welcomed by staff and guests. We had booked a room with private facilities, which were more than adequate for our needs. The beds weren't the most comfortable but they didn't prevent us from sleeping. The one warning I would give to others is that the washing machine and dryer...

Mambo - ideal place for one night stay: close to all (metro, railway station, port, . . .) Personnel: good responsive. Even have received the gift: bootle of cava. If You need to go to port: take a shuttle from near the Columbus monument.

A very clean and cozy hostel with helpful staff who treated you like friends. After the receptionist knew that we were planning to visit la Sagrada Familia, she assisted us to buy online ticket and explained us how to travel there. The bathroom was super clean and towel was provided. Simple breakfast was served in the pantry area too. Only...

This hostel is close to everything - we walked around every day. The reception were incredibly nice and welcoming and made our stay easy. There's not much of a social atmosphere and while they do have cheap sangria nights you have to drink it at the reception desk. Other than that the rooms were clean, that staff nice and the...

The location of the hostel is great, walking distance to the La Ramblas but also a 2 minute walk to the metro station (which you can use with €1 rides with the T10 metro card). The room and bathrooms were very clean. The common area downstairs, kitchen and sitting room, is beautiful although small. The only downside was the old...

My priorities for accommodation are: -cheap -clean -safe -central location in an area with life on the streets -character -not a party hostel Mambo Tango ticked all the boxes for me. The breakfast was included and was sufficient too, which is a plus.
