I had a great time in Mambo Tango. The STAFF was very helpful and kind. Giovanni and Max are amazing. They helped me with my luggage and each time offered me coffee or tea, always asking me how I was doing. Also, they kept the hostel clean all the time and they organized events each night which is good if you traveling solo. I highly recommend this place, you won’t regret it.

My experience at Mambo Tango was fantastic- I cannot recommend it highly enough. It was clean and friendly, the staff were excellent and the organised events were great fun. It is quite a small hostel and so it is really easy to make friends. I was sad to leave and will miss all the people I met on my trip!

First Hostel experience I’ve ever had and absolutely loved it. Everything about this hostel most notably the sharpened knowledge the staffs possessed were impeccable. The only thing that’s missing is breakfast but the mellow vibe of the place and the nightly organized pubcrawls makes up for it. Oh and this place is adjacent to the best Tapas bar in Barcelona! (Quimet & Quimet)

Hostel is well placed to see everything but not in the middle of the really touristy part. Staff were extremely friendly and the stay went off with out a hitch. Will return.

The whole place has a nice relaxed atmosphere with plenty to do for entertainment. Its easy to get involved with all the activities going on and, with different things organised each night, you can’t get bored of the same thing as you may in other places. The staff are all brilliant and very much up for a chat, all making me feel comfortable and extremely happy to have chosen this place to stay. In fact, I wish I’d stayed longer and will certainly be returning at some point in the future.

Clean rooms, friendly staff not too far from las ramblas

Anonymous, England | 05 March 2014 | Hostelbookers

I can’t recommend this fantastic hostel highly enough. Staff engage well with visitors, willing to interact and share their knowledge of Barcelona. It is located within touching distance of La Rambla, the heartbeat of the city. Whilst being tucked away in a sidestreet, it offers peace when you’ve had an energetic day. The atmosphere is certainly chaotic, in a positive way. Mambo Tango’s basement common room provides sanctuary from the ceaseless Catalonian energy. When in Barca, head for Mambo!

Great vibes at Mambo Tango! Of all the Sant Jordi hostels, we decided on this one due to the convenient location, and we were beyond satisfied with our choice. The atmosphere was reflective of that of Barcelona: fun, friendly, colorful, and positive. Upon our arrival, we were immediately welcomed by Hernan, one of the employees, who helped us get situated immediately. He went as far as carrying our 65L backpacks up the stairs to our dorm – talk about service! Highly recommend this stay! :)

The atmosphere at St. Jordi Mambo Tango was great. The first night I went out with the group to get to know people and it was fun. Later we did our own thing with new friends I had met. Clean showers and nice big lockers with free lock. Hernan at recepcion was super helpful in telling me where to go and what to do. I would stay here again.

Mambo Tango was one of the best experiences I have ever had at a hostel. The staff were unbelievable going the extra mile to personally get to know the guests and help out in any way they can. Hernan, Maxi, Oriol, Dany, Cacau, Rafael, Joelma, Karen & Emily made sure my moving to Barcelona was the easiest transition possible. I am so grateful to them for all their help and would highly recommend Mambo Tango to anyone coming to Barcelona.

I LOVED this Hostel! The best i have stayed in so far on my European travels! From the moment I walked in I felt very welcome. The staff were so friendly and helpful and really made me feel at home here. This hostel isn’t to big so i was able to get to know the other travelers and make new friends really easily. I loved that every night the hostel made plans for the backpackers who wanted to go out! Some of my best nights out were with the Jordi crew!! I would recommended this hostel 100%!!!

Awesome hostel.. Small enough so everyone knows everyone and the atmosphere is great.. Everyone party’s together at night and hangs during the day.. Great for the solo traveller rather than the other bigger sant jordis.. Real clean lots of space good communal area… Staff here are awesome! Good location with metro just down the road!

My stay at Sant jordi Mambo tango was amazing! The staff was amazing, really really friendly. I was travelling alone, and Barcelona was my first stop in Europe, so i was kinda nervous if I was gonna meet new people there. The cozy basement where everybody hangs out is the perfect place to hang out with other young travellers, and you get to know all of the other hostel guests even better when you all go out in bars and clubs at night. Overall rating: AMAZING place. Nr. 1 hostel if you ask me.

Amazing time here! It was my first time staying in a hostel and an incredible experience. I felt welcomed and comfortable from the moment I walked in. I was very impressed by how clean the hostel was! The location really is a good spot, pretty close to everything. But most of all the staff and the friends we made at the hostel made our whole trip to Barcelona. All the stuff was so nice, had great recommendations, and were so much fun to hang out with! Thank you Mambo Tango for the awesome time!

I loved every single thing about the hostel but I especially loved the staff workers! They are very friendly. Cacau, one of the staff workers, did a fantastic job of making me feel very welcomed in Spain. She knew Deaf people and introduced me to them; if it was not for her, I would have not met people that share the same Culture as I do. Because of Cacau, I was able to learn more about the Deaf culture and broaden my horizon within different perspectives and way of life in Barcelona, Spain.

Received the best, most inviting welcome to Barcelona at Mambo Tango! The staff was really superb- So friendly, helpful and seemed to genuinely watch out for all of their guests. Very safe atmosphere esp at night with an alert staff member monitoring the grounds. Cleanest hostel I’ve been too.. thinking the bathrooms were cleaned, wiped down every few hours. Great place to meet other travelers, thanks to the dinner nights and bar crawl. Also wi-fi worked perfectly. All thumbs up for this place!

We had a great time at Mambo Tango, Barcelona being one of the highlights of our trip! The staff were fantastic, always very friendly and willing to help with any questions. The facilities were always very clean. The atmosphere and nightly activities were what made it such a fun place to stay. We loved the sangria night(perhaps a little too much) and the tapas night was a good introduction to Spanish food. If you get the chance ask Luiz to play for you, he is an amazing guitarist! Thanks guys!

I cannot say enough good things about this hostel. It was my first time in Barcelona and I couldn’t have found a better place to stay. I originally booked 3 nights and ended up staying the entire week. The staff is amazing! Cacao, Dixon, Luiz and Hernan made me feel right at home. Answering questions, giving advice & most importantly being tons of fun. The rooms were nice, great common room, great location and very close to the metro. Bars and restaurants nearby. Very clean! I will be back

The Mambo Tango staff is by far the nicest staff I have ever met in a hostel. They are always ready to help and answer every question that you have. They welcome you with a smile and make you feel at home. I would definitely recommend other backpackers to go to this hostel. If you can don’t book in advance and then you can get better rates.

One of the best hostels I have stayed in so far, and would highly reccomend for solo travelers. All the staff are AMAZING- friendly, funny and super helpfull. The hostel has a great family/homel feel with an intimate common room area with couches/bean bags and dining table. Each night there is an organised activity you can join in like a pub crawl, pasta night or tapas. Hostel is less than 5 min walk from metro and easy to get to all the main sights.

Loooved the hostel. It’s very clean (I forgot my flip flops and didn’t mind walking barefoot).The staff is very friendly, open minded and gives you a lot of information or takes you out on a pub crawl.You can watch Tv or enjoy socializing in the common room or cooking a fast meal in the kitchen. Some people write it’s not near the city centre, but I think It’s quite near to La Rambla and other spots, plus the metro is nearly at your doorstep.Sometimes they also cook dinner for only 2 euro.

This is my FAVORITE hostel in Europe. We spent 2 months traveling to 12 different countries and stayed in a lot of hostels. This hostel is amazing. The staff is so helpful and friendly and it feels like you are staying at a friends house more than a hostel. They do something cool most nights to like “sangria night” and you pay 2 euro and have as much sangria as you want or they cook a meal and you pay 2 euros and its delicious! If you are in Barcelona this is the place to stay.

This hostel was the best I have ever stayed at! The staff were all so friendly, helpful and kind, and greeted me by name when I arrived ‘home’ to the hostel after a day of touring. The hostel was always clean and always kept to the highest standards. What I really love though is the environment that was fostered between the guests staying there – and that certainley originates from the hostel itself. There were themed nights, common spaces, and just a great vibe for people to be social. Thanks!!

In a really good location, about 10 mins walk from the centre which is far enough for you to find local eateries and be away from teh tourists but have the sights at your fingertips. Small hostel so great, homely atmosphere. Awesome common room area downstairs. Activities galour such as pasta night for two euro. In Barcelona, always be aware of your valuables!!!! The hostel is safe, the streets arent always.

This hostel is without a doubt one of the best hostels I stayed at. I do not post reviews often, but this hostel deserves the high praise for their accommodation and friendly atmosphere. One night we had all you can eat tapas and sangria for only 10 euros. We met a lot of other people staying in the hostel, which was fantastic. I absolutely recommend booking this hostel because you are guaranteed to be taken care of, as well as shown a great time.

The location was fantastic (a few blocks from La Rumbla and the Magic Fountains), the staff (especially Daniel) were super friendly and helpful, and the crowd of travelers was awesome! Being a small hostel, everyone became friends really quickly and hung out in one big group, which made it feel like one big family! I was recommended this hostel by a friend, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone else! :)

We had no idea what to do in Barcelona and the receptionist mapped out everything for us that we should do and told us what was actually worth our money to go and see. Actually had free wifi and it worked well. Free lockers to store your stuff in in the rooms. I would definitely stay there again!

This place was the most amazing experience in Barcelona. Place is so amazing and so cheap. I am so glad I moved here from the hostel that I stayed the first night. Wireless, facilities. rooms. people. everything was awesome. I highly recommend this place for any type of people. I recommend not taking your key and just leaving it at the desk. No point of risking losing it. They will secure it for you. I really loved this place! close to everything too. and the basement is so awesome just to relax

Liked Everything really! great atmosphere, very friendly staff, clean bathrooms and rooms, located in downtown area close to the substation. I traveled alone and I wasn’t sure what to do or where to go and Barcelona, picking this hostel was the right choice because you get to know everything from the staff and fellow travelers……amazing 3 days here!! would definitely recommend to all travelers particularly if its your first time in Barcelona!

Mambo Tango is incredible! I stayed here once before a few years ago, and I made sure that I was able to stay here again. It is a very social hostel, which makes it easy to meet people. The staff are absolutely fantastic, and are there to help you out when you need it. Everyone is treated like a big family at Mambo Tango.

THE BEST!!!! Mambo Tango is the perfect mix of party and chill; with 35 beds, a great communal area with tons of movies and computers with free wifi, plus a fun loving staff (with great tips), I would recommend this place to anyone coming through town (without a doubt). My solo stay went from 2 days to 8, and on the last night I slept on the couch rather than moving hostels when they ran out of beds. It’s really that good. Make sure you go around the corner for 1 euro tapas and beers!

This hostel has visual character inside. The rough stone walls in the common area are strikingly beautiful. Lockers and bathrooms in your room put a smile on your face. Couches, beanbag chairs, kitchen, WiFi, laundry, and movies on demand in the common area make this a very cozy hostel. I only stayed here one night but I was impressed. The staff spoke perfect English and were very helpful. You will have peace of mind booking this hostel.

Really nice place. Great hang-out area with movies, bean bag chairs, tables, etc with a pretty good kitchen that had everything you need. Staff take guests out on a pub crawl for free every night where you meet up with people from other hostels. Very clean, very helpful staff.

A great hostel with a nice vibe. Opportunities to party but you can still get some sleep if you want. Good kitchen for cooking. Downstairs has couches, bean bags and tv with many movies to choose from, a nice way to relax if you need it. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and not too cramped.

Easily one of the best hostel experience I ever had. Daniel, one of the staff there really creates good and friendly vibe around the place. He knows how to talk and keep travellers happy. The bed is comfy, sheet is clean, the pillow is super! Owned locker in the room with a key is a plus. Toilets and showers are within the room, that makes a big different to most hostels. Free in-room wifi, common room with a flat tv screen, two pc with free internet access!Great location.Stay no where else!!!

Mambo Tango was awesome!! Good location, great staff Dani, Hanna and everyone else in Manbo Tango are amazing! This is my second time staying here and it seems to get better every time. Mambo Tango can be a chill back place where you can share a meal and a drink with new friends or it can be a party house where you can start a wild night in Barcelona! I would recommend this hostel to anyone heading to Barcelona!

I thought this was one of the best hostels I stayed in. I was here in total for 3 days and I would highly recommend it. I stayed in the 9 bed room and it was really spacious with 2 showers and a toilet for our room. There was free wifi and free internet usage aswell as a lovely lounge/dining area which was very homely.The staff were fantastic. Great location! 15 mins walk to Las Ramblas and 10 mins walk to Port!

I really enjoyed my time in the hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you need help or have any problem they will try to find a solution. Also it is very easy to go to the city centre. You can take the metro but also by walking it is only about ten minutes. If you want to meet new people this hostel is probably the best place. Furthermore, the price is really good as well. The offered breakfeast was just like my one at home, therefore I can’t say something bad about the food either. You also have the possibility to go out, what was organized by one of the staff members. All in all, if you want to have a great time in Barcelona, you simply have to choose this hostel.

This is one of the best hostels I’ve stayed in. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the staff is wonderful, and the location is excellent. The staff encourages a familial atmosphere by cooking/eating with guests, having sangria nights, etc. All of the Sant Jordi hostels (6 in total, I believe) meet up with some frequency at bars and clubs, so you can explore Barcelona’s nightlife, carefree. The hostel is quiet, and I was able to get a lot of work done there (not something I can say about too many hostels!)

Daniel and Gustavo – both INCREDIBLE staff & PEOPLE who will cook for you, make you laugh, help you with anything, host sangria nights and take you on bar crawls with the other Sant Jordi hostels. Nice and cosy, pleanty of character, immaculately clean and safe. We extended our stay because we liked it so much. Honestly could not have been better, thank you guys! :)

This place is honestly the best hostel I have ever stayed at! The staff are just so friendly and with sangria nights, bar hopping and communal dinners this place really allows u to get to know both guests and staff. I was travelling on my own and made so many great new friends. I will definitely be returning, 3 nights just wasn’t enough!

staff was very nice, dorm has a balcony with a nice view, a lot of trust and respect towards the travellers (you can help yourself at the fridge with beverages, there’s just a box to put the money in). The location was perfect for me because i went to Barcelona for a gig of my fav band, which played in Sala Apolo (only 3 minutes walk from the hostel), the beach isn’t far either AND KFC and Burger King directly around the corner :D Would definitely stay with Mambo Tango again!

Honestly, this is the best hostel I have stayed in anywhere in Europe. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. Its great for solo travelers and groups. The staff do a great job of facilitating interactions between different groups of travelers (meaning, they help you make friends). Its super chill and relaxed, very clean. Its kind of like staying in a home, but way better. They give tons of information about places to go, what to see, how to get there. Stay at Mambo Tango, they’re great!

I loved this hostel! I’ve stayed in so many hostels before and I can safely say this has been the best. It was very cheap because I stayed there in the winter, but the cold weather didn’t stop the lively atmosphere. The staff are EXCELLENT! They make you feel at home straight away and I felt like I had become friends with them by the time I departed. A very clean and comfortable hostel where you felt at home and at ease. Highly recommended!

Great location–not right in the thick of things, but within easy walking distance, and close to the metro. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. Beds were quite comfortable. The common room was a great social space, and they have free wifi in addition to two computers. Lockers in the rooms for your stuff. Very clean, and a good breakfast. No complaints; it was a great place. Wish I could have stayed longer!

Beautifully designed hostel, very nice and cool stuff, totally clean and I was surpriced how calm it was at night in the sleeping rooms. Even the party people where very respectfull and calm when they came back from the fiestas at night. I didn’t wake up. This Hostel has a very good energy. There is only one Minus: The showers have no flexible shower heads, means: the water comes only from up and this is a problem for the girls if they really want to become clean.

I had a wonderful stay at Mambo Tango. The atmosphere is very welcoming and the best part of the stay was the friendly and helpful staff. The staff will go out of their way to ensure that you have an amazing trip. Compared to other hostels I have stayed at Mambo Tango has a community vibe. It’s a home away from home with a fun and funky decor. The free internet access and all you can drink tea was amazing. If I am ever in Barcelona again, I know where to stay!

Lovely relaxed and friendly hostel. I stayed with my daughter for a few days and it was a perfect base from which to explore old Barcelona. We could walk everywhere (even up to the park Guell) and only 10 mins to Placa Reial. What was nice the sense of flexibility and staff friendliness, which the guests seemed to reflect back. The rooms are a little spare / spartan and the bunk beds were a little small but it is a hostel not a hotel. When full, can seem rather cramped but it is certainly cosy!

I will return to this hostel for sure. Very clean, and the common room in the basement with couches is awesome. Also free wifi, and free computers. It’s an easy 10 min walk to la rambla and 20 mins to the beach although you can easily take the metro.

What an amazing hostel! I stayed at MamboTango for 7 nights in June/July 2011. Igor,Gus and Marta are all legends and were very helpful in making my stay an enjoyable one. Kudos to Igor for helping me find the choc shops! Gus’ passion for music made the lobby a relaxed atmosphere,and Marta’s recommended spots ensured I saw all of Barcelona. Not a clubber’s hostel, but as this is owned by St Jordi you can go to the others and take advantage of the daily trips to clubs. Amazing guests as well!!!

I paid a little more to stay at this hostel, but it was definitely worth it. It was very social, great location walking distance to Ramblas and the beach, cheap beer, fast WiFi, and a big common room that we hung out in on my last night there. It was very secure with big lockers and a metal lockdown cover over the front door at night (with 24hr access for residents). Plus, Barcelona is a great city to be in with a fun hostel group. I’ll definitely book again here next time.

Being greeted at Mambo Tango was one of the best parts for us! Coming off a night train and meeting Igor at the front desk was just what we needed. The place is SO clean and so comfortable to come ‘home to’. Everything was in great working order and it’s very close to the metro station for easy access. The place is great for waking up, staying up late, or just sleeping. Would definitely stay there again and for longer!
