Best budget hotels in Barcelona

Whether you are looking for a private room with a balcony overlooking Las Ramblas or a quiet room with a shared bathroom to save a little extra money, here’s a list of our favorite budget stays in Barcelona.

Hostal Nuevo Colon

Neighborhood: La Ribera
Doubles from $63

While the Hostal Nuevo Colon won’t dazzle you with charming décor, its simple, clean rooms and exciting location make it a great cheapo pick— especially when you see the nightly rates. Guests love that the hotel is just steps from plenty of sights, including the beach and boardwalk, the Maritime Museum and La Barceloneta.

Pension Mari-Luz

Neighborhood: Barri Gotic
Doubles from $75

Tucked inside a lovely 18th-century building, the Pension Mari-Luz offers small but charming rooms for incredibly low rates. While rooms lack televisions, many have balconies that offer much more than a screen could. The shared kitchen allows guests to prepare their own meals to save even more money.

Eddy Rooms Barcelona

Neighborhood: Eixample
Doubles from $64

You won’t find any plain, boring rooms here! At Eddy Rooms Barcelona, you’ll stay in rooms dripping with grandeur, from high ceilings and coordinating prints to bold colors and ornate molding. Other perks include free Wi-Fi, a communal fridge, complimentary coffee and tea, and an antique elevator (that still works!). Just outside the hotel, you’ll find an abundance of fashion (at a discount!), charming eateries, adorable shops, and nice bars.

Hostal Girona

Neighborhood: Eixample
Doubles from $95

We love the Hostal Girona for its incredible location near downtown Barcelona, astonishingly low rates (even during peak season!) and impeccable cleanliness. Amenities include free Wi-Fi, flat-screen television, and air conditioning. Guests can choose from private or shared bathrooms if they want to save even more

Itaca Hostel

Neighborhood: Barri Gotic
Private double rooms from $96

Extraverted travelers, unite! The communal vibe at the Itaca Hostel welcomes guests and make it easy for you to make new friends during your trip. Rooms vary from shared dorms to private singles and doubles, to apartments that sleep five or six people. You’ll save a pretty penny thanks to clean shared bathrooms and a super cheap breakfast .

Fashion House

Neighborhood: Eixample
Doubles from $92 (or $72 for a room with a shared bathroom)

Rooms at the Fashion House are, well, very fashionable, with tasteful décor and not a speck of dust in sight. Some rooms also have balconies, so be sure to ask ahead when reserving if you want a view. Our favorite part of the hotel? The flower-filled oasis that is the veranda, where guests can linger and mingle.

Hostal Fernando

Neighborhood: Barri Gotic
Doubles from $87

Hostal Fernando is a great cheapo stay with both dorms and private rooms, all with private bathrooms and air conditioning, in a location near attractions like Plaça Reial, the Cathedral, and La Boqueria Market. Guests staying in private rooms can also enjoy a free breakfast.

Hostal Goya

Neighborhood: Eixample
Doubles from $104

The quiet location and elegant rooms really make us swoon over Hostal Goya. Amenities include free Wi-Fi, air conditioning, private bathrooms, and a cozy TV lounge. You won’t find televisions in the rooms, however, so we recommend requesting a room with a balcony or just kick back in the common lounge with sofas and a flat-screen.
