Important Information

Somnio is a brand new hostel located just steps from Las Ramblas. Opened recently by two twenty-something Americans with a flair for hospitality and a passion for travel, Somnio offers the experience of a full service hotel at hostel prices. Not only is Somnio the perfect launch pad to the best of Barcelona, it is a comfortable and stylish place to plan your trip, meet new people and recharge for the adventures that await you. Somnio brings an entirely new concept to today’s travel market – a chain of hostels with a uniform standard of excellence geared towards discerning young travelers. From the brand new facilities at the flagship location in Barcelona to other sites opening across Europe, Somnio boasts chic style, unbeatable service, clean facilities, luxury bedding, and a warm atmosphere at affordable prices. Every Somnio hostel you stay at will meet the same high standards of quality while tailoring its services and expertise to each different location. The name Somnio means to dream in Latin or, by some definitions, to imagine foolishly. Frustrated by the stress of finding clean, safe, quality lodging, two sisters from Chicago dreamed of a solution to leave young travelers with more time and energy to spend enjoying everything the great travel destinations of the world have to offer. After working in the buttoned-up world of banking and sneaking in travel opportunities whenever possible, they smashed their piggy banks and headed to Spain to put their travel expertise to use. Traveling solo? With a group? Somnio has rooms for every type of traveler. All of our rooms and bathrooms are completely new, stylishly outfitted, and designed with travelers needs in mind. Our cultural concierge functions as tour guide, party planner, guidebook, local insider and more. Choose from our selection of self-guided walking tours and cultural itineraries designed for your specific interests. In addition, take part in Somnio classes, events, and tasting to learn more about Barcelona and Catalunya. Let us help you plan your trip and share insider tips to tailor your experience to exactly what you want. Somnio prides itself on five-star service at hostel prices. If you need anything during your stay, just ask one of our 24-hour hosts. Meet fellow travelers, stop in to sample local wines, partake in our favorite tapas, or plan your itinerary for the day in our lobby bar. All guests at Somnio will enjoy these common amenities: • Completely renovated facilities • Luxury mattresses/bedding • Free Internet and WiFi • Vanity/Sink in every room • Heat • Elevator • 24 hour reception
