  • Great location! The staff was really friendly, we were met by Jandro at arrival who showed us the apartment and gave us some great tips about where to go in Barcelona. The shared facilities were ok. Nice kitchen/livingroom, but the waterpressure in the shower were really bad. The room was nice and suited our needs, although the bed was really hard and uncomfortable. All in all a good place to stay for a cheap price for a few days, we will definitely be back next time! :)

  • The location was perfect (old centre of Barcelona, next to many pubs and restaurants, close to the sea), and the staff was very kind and helpful !! The street is noisy by night but if you enjoy catalan life and go back to the flat late enough (2:00 AM is ok) it is all right! We've been staying a week, and the kitchen was also very helpful, it allows you to cook when you start missing money... I strongly recommand this place :)

  • We spent almost a week at Mapamundo and enjoyed it very much. The staff, Yamien and Jandro, were very friendly and helpful. It was very clean there, the areas were cleaned every day. It is located in the Gotic Quarter, that means there was a lot of noise from the street. But we received ear plugs and then it was no problem. We loved the area around with all the little streets! Thank you Mapamundo :)

  • I like the guys that run the place, the two of them are lovely. It's pretty bloody noisy over the weekend but then you're staying in Barri Gotic, so what do you expect. The boys were nice enough leave a pineapple sweet and some ear plugs on the towels though, so with those in there was no problem.

  • Great boutique like atmosphere were you easily find yourself at home. The hosts are amazingly cooperative and will share all helpfull experiences they have. The best about Mapamundo is the location itself. It might look at bit dark and shady at first but give the neighborhood a second chance and you'll discover it is full of life. The best bars, restaurants and small boutique shops can be found here. If that is not what you look for you can allways walk to the ramblas in about 5 min. Great place

  • It was a lovely place and the staff were very nice. The only aspect that can be improved on is to have a board or something that indicates who is sharing the "apartment". People move in and out and so from a security perspective it would be nice to know who is sharing the space with you, so you don't let people in who aren't staying there. A notice board of names would be useful.

  • Great location close to Las ramblas and the old quarter. Biggest positive was the owner who gave us a great run down of the city, where to go etc - he was really friendly and informative. Room clean, has full kitchen etc. Bit noisy but all in all a good hostel.
