I last stayed at Somnio in Barcelona some six years ago and remembering the excellent service, value and location I decided to return when in the area for a quick two day break last week. Travelling solo this time round I was given a smaller single room at the back which was still very comfortable size-wise. My only criticism would... More

Initially it was hard to find this place because the entrance is a plain door shared by other tenants in the same building and the signage is small and only mounted on the inside of the door frame. Its located only a short walk from Passeig de Gracia metro station, Placa Catalunya, and Las Ramblas but its far enough away... More

Good location and has the minimum requirements. Staff was very helpful when we requested their help. It is a good choice if you're looking to stay a couple of nights in a Hostel in Barcelona/quick trip to Barcelona.

I spent hours trawling through websites looking for cheap accomodation in August and this hostel kept popping up! I've never stayed in a hostel before so I was a little wary but was persuaded by my student daughter. What a pleasant surprise. The location was ideal, just off La Ramblas (though some way back from the popular street performers). A... More

We stayed for 4 nights (Thu - Sun) during beginning of June. It is a central located hostel very close by placa catalunya and therefore close by all main attractions, restaurants and entrance to metro/subway. Friendly staff, helpful and providing advise and maps. We have had a 2 double private room. Prices were OK, not very expensive. Beds were OK,... More

Somnio is a basic no frills hostel on the second floor of a lovely building just minutes walk from Las Ramblas. After seeing pictures of the rooms online, I was dissapointed to be placed in a tiny box room at the back of the hostel, with no furnishings except from a sink and a wardrobe. I shared a double bed... More

From the reviews I was hoping our stay here would be pleasant as well. Unfortunately, that was not the case. I didn't mind the small room, but the sink was dirty and there were strands of hair.....obviously from the prior guest! As disgusting as that was, I was too tired to say anything. Our host, Miguel was pleasant and quite... More

Great location, a few minutes walk to Casa Batllo and La Rambla. Nice staff, fresh faces everyday, but every one is so friendly. Quiet and clean room, the only problem is sound insulation between different rooms and hall. Clean toilet, but the shower-bath drain may need to unblock. In total, it's valuable, recommend!

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
