Review: Sant Jordi Mambo Tango Hostel Barcelona
I needed a hostel close to the metro, close to the direct line to Sants Estacion, carrying many luggage’s and the metro stairs in Barcelona are not such a good friend to it. So I choose Sant Jordi Mambo Tango – quite a long name :D.
Location : Poeta Cabanyes 23, Barcelona ; 3 minutes walking from Parallel metro station (L2, L3), 5 minutes from La Rambla, 10 minutes from Plaza Espana and 15 minutes to the beach; all walking distance. The hostel is perfectly located, close to the touristy sites and the nightlife in Barcelona. The area is considerate a safe one, but from my point of view ( stayed one year in Barcelona), during the night cannot be so safe for a solo traveler.
Atmosphere : in one world : PARTY! For long stays I would not pick this hostel because is a noisy one; it’s considered a party hostel and the bar downstairs is a proof of that. Free sangria night is to be blamed for that :). If you are a party traveler, this is the perfect location for you in Barcelona.
Cleanness & Rooms: Bathrooms are ok and clean; there are 2-3 on each floor, which is a very nice . I stayed only one night, but the room, even if it was full, it was clean. The only thing I did not like about Mambo was the small room; the lockers are located in the room and that takes from the space.
Security: Lockers available so no nothing to be worried.
Services and prices: Breakfast is not included, but you can have a typical Spanish breakfast (churros, etc.) at the bar next to the hostel. The prices start from 8 euro in the 9 dormitories and in a private room its 25 euro per night.
Wi–fi is not working in the room so you have to go downstairs to check your emails and Facebook.
