About Somnio

Somnio is a brand new hostel located just steps from Las Ramblas. Opened in 2008 by two sister from Chicago 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 all 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 and Air conditioning in every room
• Elevator
• 24 hour reception (except in the winter period)
• Free coffee and tea in the lobby 24/7!

Accommodation Information

We have 10 rooms at the hostel - 2 dorm rooms, 1 single, 4 doubles and 3 twins. Unless listed as ensuite, most of our rooms share bathrooms in the hallways. We have a bar in our lobby where guests can gather to meet, watch TV, eat breakfast, enjoy a drink or get help planning their trip.

Location Information

We are very centrally located, two blocks from Plaza Catalunya/Las Ramblas. Most major sites are within short walking distance, but we are also located nearby three metro stations. There are a lot of great bars, restaurants, and shops in our neighborhood.
