    Historical Traveler Reviews Hostal Fernando Barcelona

    Great location and clean rooms.. but bring earplugs!!


    Great location - right off the Ramblas and a extremely decent price!! We stayed in a very clean triple room (which was a double room with a extra bed) which had a TV, air conditioning and a safe. The bathroom was okay (I wore shower sandals) but the towels were changed everyday. There are lockers available and the staff were multilingual and very helpful and friendly. My only word of caution is the noise - the walls are thin and the doors do not close quietly, in fact, they slam shut. We stayed in September along with a foreign high school class, who partied all night long with music blaring from their laptops and running in and out of their rooms, doors slamming behind them. Don't blame them for partying, but just a suggestion that earplugs would be helpful.

    Get a Receipt


    So my friend and I stayed in this hostal with no probelms until the end. They had no record of us paying, and charged my card for all nights stayed for two. We even watched it on video before we left, and the front door staff didnt believe us and even lied to me saying they wouldnt charge my card. This hostal is in a good location, but there are many other hostals around that im sure are more trust worthy and friendly. Also the reception is not very helpful, so dont bother asking any questions about the city.

    Not my cup of tea!!


    It was for my college trip one night stay but was really horrid rooms 5 in a room is so squashy in my bed was squashed insects and under my mates beds was lots of fluff and the cupboards were very dirty, I will never go there again!!!

    Hostal Fernando - Brilliant!


    I stayed at this Hostel for 3 nights with 4 other friends for a long weekend - we had a triple room and double room.. i would really recommend it to anyone! We were all prepared to slum it a bit as we had never stayed in a Hostel before and thought it would be a good idea to save some cash - we were really pleasantly surprised with the quality of this Hostel.. Rooms were clean and tidy and beds made/washed every day, bathroom was cleaned every day (best shower ive had in ages!) and stocks replenished, all rooms had a TV and security box, the reception was open 24 hours and all the people i met who manned the desk were more than helpful and polite at all times!! Its right next to the Las Rambles (the main strip) so you are right in the centre and it cost us less than £20 each per night! Excellent...

    I Love Barcelona!!


    I stayed in Hostal Fernando with 9 other pupils from my school in Kent from the 11th Feb to the 18th Feb 2005. It was the best ever! Although we had to share a bathroom it was really nice, and the rooms were comfortable. The best thing was the mix of people staying there - we met people from many different countries and made some great friends.

    I also pulled the most beautiful Italian ever (Juan Carlos) who was also staying there!

    It was the best holiday ever and I am returning in July with one of my bestest friends! Can't wait!

    Good choice!


    I've just come back home from my vacation in barcelona for the new Year's Eve, where I stayed 4 nights at Hostal Fernando, and I highly recommend this hostal to young people who doesn't want to pay a lot but who at the same time doesn't want to stay in a hostel sharing a bathroom with other 10 persons!

    (I'm 22 I stayed there with 2 friends)

    Hostal Fernando it's in a perfect location, exactly central, just off the rambla, I had a triple room with private bathroom, the room is simple and a little too small, but very very clean, with sheets and towels, the bath, with shower and bidet, is perfect and very clean too.

    All for 72€ per night, without breakfast.

    people at the front desk very gentle,and heating and hot water perfectly doing!

    For me..highly recommended!

    Never seen such a terrible place


    My sister and I were there two days ago. (12-14 December 2004) I found the name of that hostal from trip advisor (which I use frequently before going to any trip.) I have never seen such a bad place before.

    The room was below average. It may be tolerated if the staff could be polite. The heating of our room was not working. And when we told the problem to the man at the reception he told us that he would do nothing and we can leave the hotel if we want in such an unpolite manner that I have never seen in any place in the world. We had to change our hotel at midnight. Fortunately we found a very good place (a two star hotel with the same price including breakfeast, hair dryer abd HEATING) in the same street. The following day, I went to the tourist information and filled in the required forms about the claim. It was a really bad experience for us. Such a place should never be suggested to tourists.



    I just got back from Barcelona, where myself and 6 friends went for my Hen weekend. We stayed in Pension Fernando for 4 nights - we had twin and triple rooms with private bathrooms. The rooms were basic but clean, there was a large fan, a safety deposit box in the room, nice bathroom fully tiled with toilet and even a bidet! Comfy beds too. We were suprised to find there was also a maid service and towels provided. The staff were nice, 24 hour reception with no curfew. Really excellent value for money - it cost us 110 euros each for the four nights (about £70-80)!!! The location is perfect, it comes off La Rambla the most famous and busy street in Barcelona, and the Carrer De Ferran which its on it's a good size busy street not a dingy back road. We all felt very safe here. About 10-15 minutes from lovely beach and some excellent nightlife at the harbour. I would recommend anyone stay here.

    One word- wikid!


    Go here for a wickid time. I went in February this year and cnt wait to go back in the summer. Its really clean and a bargain at the same time. All the staff are really friendly and its location couldn't be any better. Theres also a great Irish pub just a few doors down and its right next to Las Ramblas. Don't go here if u intend on early nights, i guarantee you'll be kept awake by British yobs(like me!) in the streets below, but to avoid this, just get down there with them. On arrival the rooms might not seem so classy, but you will soon learn to love em!

    Pension fernando: clean, helpful people, great location


    here we are...i just got back yesterday from barcellona...that was really beautiful!

    i stayed at pension fernando. the reception is very particular with its stone wall, people is very nice and helpfull, the rooms are simple but clean and confortable. i saw 3 kinds of room : 1 double - very small with armchair with crutches and a safe box inside, 1 bed with sheet, blanket and bedside table with a lamp, fan and heating, television, 1 nice bathroom with washbasin, toilet and shower (hot water [;)]). then i saw 1 bigger room that have also a table with a chair and a bidet in the bathroom. the single room haven't the bathroom but a washbasin and you can use the common bath that is very clean. the outside rooms is quite roumorous in the night (but you're so tired that you fall instantly sleep! ) [:)] in the ground floor there is a 24 hours snacks and drinks machine, a rest room with televison and tables, luggage lockers, internet and a pubblic telephone. the location is great, very central near to the ramblas,the metro liceu and many restaurants and bar.but it's also near placa reial...and in my opinion this is both positive and negative cause in this placa there are many locals and disco but also many tramps and beast punk...they don't annoy but i don't like the last!

    have a wonderful holiday!!! bye!

We invite them to join us and we teach them how to play. They are from Ottawa, Canada and are named Helen and Elaine. We have a good time.

On the subject of bags, they aren't getting lighter and we will need another suitcase before flying again. Craig tries to stop people from picking up the bags indicating to them that the bags are heavy. Today a man at the hotel moved a bag and turned to Ang and said "house" in ...

The hike was a lot of fun with amazing views of the flat countryside all around. Mike is a fan of heights and had a great time climbing on the sculpture and up to the very top of the mountain, past the end of the trail. After funicular, cable car, train and metro we arrived at plaza España and, ...

Rejoined the bus and braved the elements up stairs, then connected with the Red bus route back to town. Sorted the SIM card and checked out a large department store and Carrefour supermarket - busy as, with lots of weird things for sale. Hotel recommended Rosal34 for Tapas and we settled on their ...

    ... Olympic Village and the lookout points that we otherwise might not have seen.. YAY me!! :) The Paellas were almost always perfect but the further you went from the main tourist areas the much better they were... But never as good as Dads ones though! ;) One little Guinness pub a couple of streets away from our hostel had the absolute best and only €8.50 per pan! One final thing though that continues to baffle me... Is that there was not one churro to be seen... Does that ...
