BedandBe Hostel: An accommodation with a lot of charm that’s right in the historical centre of Córdoba !
Since opening BedandBe Hostel, we have received travelers from all corners of the globe. They have chosen us because of our reputation as the most social hostel in town. We are located in an old building on the bustling street of Jose Cruz Conde N.22 (c/ Foro Romano) that is considered one of the most famous street in the city. It is a place of charm and character with great energy, you can feel this from the moment you arrive where you’ll be greet by one of our friendly “local” hosts.
Things get better and better when you walk up our endless stairs, where you’ll get to see the beautiful rooms and get to know the rest of our lovely guests. The best part is when you reach the highest point, where you’ll find the attic and terrace. These areas are specially designed as social spaces where you’ll find it very easy to meet new people.
Our building was constructed in 1933 by the famous architect Felix Hernandez. The original structure has been conserved, with the original patio and rooftop still intact. We have also maintained its original hydraulic cement tiles, its high ceilings, and its wooden doors and windows. We have also incorporated all of the comforts to realistically live with pleasure : air conditioning and good WiFi in all of the rooms, LED television in the lounge area, and a kitchen that is fully equipped with anything you might need.
For your information, Felix Hernandez is one of the main restorer of Cordoba Cathedral-Mosque and Medina Azahares. The architect of the Plaza de las Tendillas which is considers as the actual center of the city.

The rooms and bathrooms
BedandBe Hostel has private twin rooms, as well as shared dorm rooms with either 3,4,or 8 beds. All of the beds in the shared dorms come with a private light and individual security lockers.
The bathrooms of BedandBe are always shared outside of the rooms. The bathrooms are basic without anything fancy but still very nice with everything that’s necessary and always clean!!
All of the rooms has AC (hot/cold) and all of them (minus the one located on the patio) are exterior. In each room you will find all of the original large luminous windows and some balconies. Each one face the busy commercial area in the center of Cordoba. This leads to the rooms always receiving a lot of sun light but also can be quite noisy at night. If you are looking for a quiet night, we recommend our new hostel OptionBe which is very close to BedandBe but much more tranquil street.
A good taste, great temperature, amazing energy, and reliable WIFI!
The kitchen, attic, and the terrace. Our social spaces
On the second floor we have the kitchen which is fully equipped with all electric appliances. The kitchen is always available for the guests. It’s the perfect place to share food experiences with other travelers and also local hosts.
On the top floor, all the way on the TOP, BedandBe Hostel has another small kitchen, attic, and the terrace. The attic provides access to the spacious rooftop that always provides ample sunshine.

Then you can go up there to work if you have to with our fast WIFI, see your favorite show on the LED TV, or play cards with fellow travelers while chatting about the adventures of last night 😉 .
The terrace is perfect to see the center of Cordoba from the top, to catch some sun, or refresh yourself with our outside shower that is open all year round due to the beautiful weather of Cordoba. Along with that, we have a small garden with aromatic plants, peppers, and tomatoes that you can enjoy during breakfast or during the family dinners in the evening.
The rooftop is the highest point and was designed specifically as a social space. At the top of the endless stairs, you will have a premium time when the night arrives. We have mojito nights, delicious wine, family dinners , and movie/music nights. These are some of the nice social activities that take place here.
