One of the best stays in EuropePosted Oct 1, 2013
Pros: Location and condition of the facilities, kitchen and bathrooms very clean.
Cons: Nothing, for me was excellent!
Location: Very close to Urgell metro station you can conveniently get transported to all the touristic places in just few minutes.
I would highly recommend to stay at Els Angels. It is conveniently located in the heart of Barcelona, the staff is so friendly and helpful, and the facilities are very clean.

Convenient location, kitchen and free wifiPosted Jul 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
It is situated in an area with locals, meaning that cheap food is available close by. It's about a 20-25 minute walk to the cathedral and centre, but there is a metro station almost next to the front door. The hostel is basic with small rooms, but is adequate as a base for sleeping, and the staff are very enthusiastic about giving you tips and information - when they are there. There is a kitchen where you can use a hob, microwave, grill and fridge, and an area with dining tables. Pots and pans are available too. The bathroom is shared between about 6 rooms as some have en-suite, and there is an extra toilet as well as sinks in the rooms. The bathroom was not particularly clean but the shower worked well. Towels are provided, as is a hairdryer, but no soaps. The rooms are rather hot, which made it hard to sleep sometimes, but there is a fan to try and ease this somewhat, semi-sucessfully. There is a computer which you can use, as well as free wifi throughout. It was also relatively quiet, though this was down to pleasant guests rather than door thickness. It was used by a mixture of families and young people, though as rooms sleep 2-3, you do not get big rowdy groups. For the price, it was well located and I really valued the wifi, kitchen and help, but it could have been cleaner and cooler. Tip: once you have made your booking, confirm with them the sort of room you have booked (twin or double).

Great HostelPosted Jul 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a really great stay. The hostel is nice an modern and there's a kitchen with a big fridge which is always helpful. We did have to change rooms for our second night though which was fine but the room we moved into didn't have an air conditioner, just a fan so word of advice if you visit in the summer make sure you request a room with an air conditioner over preference of having a shower in your room or it's very hot!

Very basic, but goodPosted May 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
Very basic accommodation. Booked twin room, got the room with three bends - plus TV, small night stand, and the sink and that's it. Only one shower for 10 rooms, two toilets, but I only had to wait a couple of times. Kitchen seemed well stocked, but I did not use it. Location is good, lots of shops and stores in the neighborhood. WiFi was fastest I encountered in Spain and worked great (MacBook Air and iPhone 5) in common areas as well as in the room but other people had issues connecting. Can't beat for the price, very likely will stay here again.

Fantastic Staff, Incredible LocationPosted Jan 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
The staff was incredible- had maps, tips and suggestions and really wanted to make our stay great. The room was small but clean and having a kitchen is always a plus. Really close to everything, including an airport shuttle, great sights and the metro. Couldn't beat it for the price!

Cheap and convenient hotel for budget travellersPosted Dec 14, 2012 on Hotels.com
The location is just a 30m walk to the Urgell metro station which will link you to all major attractions in less than 20 minutes. Rooms are clean but a bit small which is still acceptable for budget travelers. There is a shared kitchen with a microwave oven and a refrigerator you can use. At night, you will hear the noise generated by other lodgers on the use of shared toilet/bathroom.

Good value for money and great location!Posted Oct 10, 2012
Very nice and super close to the Urgell Metro station. Lots of cafes & brasseries nearby. Would suggest to everyone to get a Metro ticket though as distances are longer than they seem on the map! We had our own bathroom which was very convenient and excellent price for value. The only downside was that our "window" faced a shaft so not much natural light. Bed was very comfortable, and there was always hot water in the shower!
