Hotel Radio (Barcelona, Spain)

About Radio

Situated next to Barcelona’s famous La Poloma club, Radio Hostel is an ideal central base for those who’d like to experience the best of the city’s nightlife. All 36 rooms have private bathrooms with toiletries, telephones and flat screen TV’s. Most face a relatively quiet pedestrianised street. The reception is open 24 hours, and can assist with information, recommendations, luggage storage and even bike rentals. There is Wi-Fi in the public areas, and vending machines with hot and cold drinks for when you get thirsty. There are no on-site dining facilities, but the central location means there are plenty of tapas bars and restaurants just outside the door. The nightlife in the area is the immediate attraction, but Barcelona’s nearest beaches are 2.5 miles away, while the iconic Sagrada Familia is two miles from the hostel.

Positive Reviews


Really friendly and helpful staff

While there are some reports of difficulty communicating in English, the staff are almost universally commended for being genuinely friendly and helpful. There are several reports of staff members going far beyond the call of duty to make sure that guests comfort was ensured.


Good central location

While the hostel isn't exactly right on the beach, or overlooking the Sagrada Familia, it is very central and close to transport, restaurants and nightlife. Most guests seem to come to party, and are not disappointed with the location.


Good value budget option

There is a decent amount of negative sentiment about certain aspects of Hostal Radio, but most guests concede that it offers great value in a very central location. Most only really use their rooms to sleep and bathe, and the rest of the time exploring the city.

Negative Reviews


Extremely small rooms and showers

According to the vast majority of guests the rooms really are rather small. A small minority were unhappy with this, but most agreed that, given the price point and location, a small room was expected. A more practical concern was that many fond the showers too small to be able to shower properly.


No Wi-Fi in the rooms

While there is Wi-Fi near reception, it is not available in the rooms. Several guests were unhappy they couldn't stay connected, especially the young people who make up most of the guests.


No air conditioning in the rooms

The rooms at the hostel do not have air conditioning. While fans are usually supplied, guests often find these simply not good enough to tackle the hot Barcelona summer.
