Everything you nee in a great location, friendly staff and the free breakfast is decent. Went last year and stayed again, facilities are way better than a lot of hostels for the same price, walking distance to La Ramblas and other attractions

Very tiny place but very personal and cozy. LOTS OF DVDS but it's Barcelona so you should be out exploring. "Breakfast" but really only tea and toast. They didn't know how to work the AC. Overall, if you need a place to crash I would recommend but it's not top notch.

I stayed two nights in the hostel, a weekend. It has everything you need at a really good price. Standard bed, good kitchen, good bathrooms and nice staff. The place is clean and the wifi is fast enough. Totally recommended for few days stay.

A Clean hostel and nice staff! Breakfast is included! We stayed here for three nights, everything is excellent, hot water is available for 24 hours. The distance from the tourism spots is fine. There is a supermarket near the hostel, you can cook on the hostel! Inexpensive price for backpackers :)

Brilliant hostel. Feels very homely and lived in. Kitchen is very well equipped, reception 24h, wifi working, everything is very clean. The only thing that's spoiling is the noise - I don't know what the walls are made of but I could hear everything that's going on on the street and some pipes around the rooms made horrible noises all...

Amazing hostel. Small, but very clean and very well located near the city centre in a quite safe neighbourhood (and very close to 2 underground stations - urgell & universitat). The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The whole experience was excellent.

Deciding on a hostel to stay at is a big decision! You want to find somewhere that is going to be safe and clean and have a good atmosphere. This place is the one to go to if you want all of that. It's located in a quite area of town so you won't have trouble going to sleep. It's... More

Very good hostel, clean, tidy, functional. All the staff were friendly and helpful, excellent recommendations on where to visit and eat. Great location, short walking distance to la rambla. Would stay here again.

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.
