Sun. 3rd. – Day 5
Breakfast is served downstairs in a medieval looking cellar behind the reception desk. It seems like all the German students are there at once and determined to fill up so they won't need to eat for the rest of the day. An attendant rushes back and forth desperately replenishing large trays of ham, …
Sat. 2nd. - Day 4
There is no doubt at all, but the Spanish invention of the siesta must be one of the most significant advances in civilization. We are fully refreshed as we leave the hostel and take the metro to Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudí's unfinished masterpiece.
We emerge from the metro on the west side …
Sat. 2nd. - Day 4
Madrid to Barcelona
Madrid's Metro starts running at 6:00 am, so rather run the risk of missing our train we take a taxi to Atocha railway station. We are nervous that there won’t be any taxis around that early, but we need not have worried and are soon arriving at the entrance to the palatial station. I have …
So last time we left you, we were in Spain, San Antoni. Before leaving San Antoni we decided to go Sunset parasailing. It was great we went out with about 8 people on a little parasailing boat around 7:30pm to catch the sunset. We had a few wuss' on board and couldn't take the big waves but nat and I were lovin it. It was the longest rope in Europe …
My last mission is to see the Picasso Museum and I booked on line for 10.00 when it opens. That was a good move because it is nearly empty and I don't have to queue. It is quite small but covers his very early works and some blue period. Sadly the two prints that we have had for years, the boy with a ball and one of the nudes are out on loan. I loved the pigeon series which I have never ...

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