Campus del Mar University Residence Barcelona Reviews
A great compromise between a hostel and a hotel! Aug 21, 2016
I stayed at the Campus Del Mar university residence for 4 nights in August 2016. After struggling to find affordable accommodation in Barcelona I came across the Campus Del Mar. It is a university dorm that rents out it's rooms during the breaks. Here are my thoughts:
1) The common areas - Spacious, clean and light. There is a large lobby with 2 computers and a printer which are free to use. Off the lobby there is a TV room with plenty of seating and an outdoor seating area. Downstairs there is another seating area with a pool table and vending machines.
2) My Room - I booked a single room which consisted of a single bed, wardrobe, desk with draws, some shelves, a flat screen TV, pull out table with chair, and a private bathroom. It also had a small kitchenette with hob, fridge, microwave, sink and basic kitchen utensils. The room was air conditioned, the wifi worked perfectly and the room was cleaned daily, which also included a daily basket of breakfast items left in the fridge :)
3) Location - The building is on a quiet street a 5 minute walk to Barceloneta beach, a 10 minute walk to the harbour, and around 20 minutes to the centre of town. The metro stop "Barceloneta" is around 10 minutes away, and you can also get the hop on hop off buses from here. There is a small supermarket 2 minutes away which is open late.
4) Staff - The only staff I saw were the ladies at the front desk who were always well dressed and friendly, and were very helpful when I had any questions.
Overall I was so happy with what I got for half the price a room in the centre of town was going to cost me! I will definitely stay here the next time I go to Barcelona :)
