Federico immediately put us into vacation mode when we arrived. HIs demeanor is open, fun, energetic, and at the same time "nice and easy". His apartment is perfectly situated in an adorable district, with plenty of markets, restaurants, and bars nearby. Federico has organized his home perfectly, so there is never any confusion during your stay. The other guests at the house were also great, which just went to show that Federico naturally attracts good people. We highly recommend and would stay there every time we come to Barcelona.
Federico is an excellent host. Very easygoing and respect a lot your space and your hours.
Thank you very much.

Federico is a charming, outgoing and a very funny guy. You'll feel comfortable & at home in no time. He's very willing to help you out with anything. For example: our room was a bit cold so he provided us with heating, ordering a taxi etc.
If you don't mind a crazy minded (I mean that in the most positive way) person, then go ahead and book yourself a room at his place.
Federico was a brilliant host. He met us early before check in time and allowed us to check out late, and was extremely flexible through our stay - so very considerate of him! He was also very helpful, full of tips and advice, making our stay even better. We enjoyed his very friendly and welcoming approach and even got to meet a few of his friends who came to visit.
The room is very big and spacious and the apartment is well equipped. It was unusually cold for Barcelona when we stayed and the room is not insulated because of the (beautiful) balcony and is not really heated. However on the coldest night Federico gave us the heater from the living room to take in to the room :)
The location of the apartment is great, 2 minute walk from Arc de Triomf and the Borne and Barri Gotic are right around the corner. The only downside of that was some noise in the room, from the street below and the church bells around the corner, but we are exceptionally light sleepers so that might not be a problem for others...
The bed is very big, and comfy - lots of space to sleep even if you're sharing.
The building is quite old, and the one thing that was less convenient was that the hot water ran out quickly so shower length is limited (but there is great water pressure!).
Our stay in Barcelona was great, it is a wonderful city - and staying with Federico made it even better. Even though the building is older and it was challenging to remember not to flush TP down the toilet - Federico himself made up for it all by being his true, open and lovely self! His chilled and playful manner and his brilliant taste in music made us feel right at home. We would happily stay with him again next time we come to Barcelona.
All in all, a wonderful choice of apartment and host! Thank you so much Federico!

The best host in Barcelona! I had a great time staying at Federicos place. He was very friendly, easy going and I did really feel like home during my stay. The apartment is near to everything and you can walk around to see what you like to see.
Dont hesitate to rent a room at Federicos place!
Federico was so welcoming and friendly from the moment we arrived, with great tips in places to go and local bars and restaurants to check out. His flat was very clean and the bed comfortable and the location was perfect. A great hits all around and u would recommend his place greatly, thank you Fede for the lovely stay, Ronnie and Agus x
Federico was an AMAZING host and made our stay in Barcelona fun and enjoyable. He is a friendly and very funny guy, so hospitable - he immediately made my boyfriend and I feel at home in his house. The apartment is in a great location, the room is very spacious and excellent value for those travelling on a budget. Federico really made our week in Barcelona so wonderful (and educational). I highly recommend him.
If you want a friendly, gracious, host, stay with Federico. He and his Mercedes were lovely, and they both provided lots of advice on where to visit and eat.
The room is nice, large, and clean. Also, the room was mostly quiet, the only exception being street cleaners in the morning (which you'll get everywhere). Most importantly there was not the loud partying of BARcelona.
The apartment, although quite old, is on the 4th floor, has a lift, and is in a nice area. Also, ask Federico to show you the roof terrace and the views of barcenlona. Location wise, we were able to walk nearly everywhere in the city we wanted to visit.
Highly recommended, thanks to our humble host Federico
My husband and I stayed with Federico and Mercedes for two weeks. They went above and beyond to make us feel at home at their place. They have been very laid-back, respectful, accommodating, and friendly the whole time. The apartment was always kept clean. The location was also very convenient- metro stops, shops, grocery stores, and restaurants are just a short walk away. Staying at this apartment and hanging out with Federico and Mercedes made our Barcelona trip very enjoyable.
Amazing location, nice apartment, affordable and amazing hostesses..can't ask for much more! They were so friendly and welcoming, and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable..was a great experience all around!
