Hello Loreta,
The only possibility is the bus or a private transfer. You have to get the bus at Estació del Nord. From your accommodation, you can take the bus N3 in carrer Paris with Casanova (direction Rambla dels Països Catalans - Pl. Espanya) to the Monumental bus stop and you will be 5-10 minutes form the bus station.
Have a nice stay in Barcelona!

Dear Irene,
The bus will take you to Barcelona Estació del Nord. From there you can take the metro, line L1 (Arc the triomf station, very close to the bus station). This line is direct to Plaça Catalunya. From there to get Calabria, 199 street take the samemetro line to Urgell station. Other option to be closer to Calabria 199 is to take the line L3 in Plaça Catalunya, change in Diagonal station to L5 line and go to Entença station, which is less than 5 minutes from your destination.
Have a nice stay in Barcelona!!
