La Isla, you were great to us! Do not be thrown off by the word hostel! It is an amazingly clean, friendly and welcoming place to stay with great sized rooms, we stayed in room 5 which was lovely and spacious with a private bathroom, room service every day which makes your bed up for you etc. There is a...

Very friendly and helpful staff. We were lucky to get a room at the back and away from the traffic. Basic but absolutely fine. Comfortable and clean. Safe. Good location. Metro nearby and easy walk to the Old Town and beach. Didn't make full use of the terrace though and should have. Allowed to leave bags after checking out which... More

La Isla Hostel was great; Fernando was really helpful and friendly, as were all of the staff. The apartment with a shared bathroom was very clean and had a welcoming feel. Our group had 2 rooms and both were really clean and bright, everything feels well looked after. All the beds were comfortable. The room with the terrace was wonderful,... More

I really enjoyed my stay at La Isla Hostel. The room was exactly like my expectations and the whole hostel was cleaned every morning. The booking includes towels, a small tube of shampoo, free usage of wifi and the fridge in the hall. The hostel also has an excellent location because the metro station "Arc de Triomfe" is just 3...

Rooms were simple and clean, everything you need for a good city trip. Staff is friendly and helps you out when needed. They took care of our luggage after arriving early. Our bags were at the top floor when we came back for the room key.

If you are looking for cheap accommodation in Barca you can do a lot worse than La Isla. Friendly staff, great location for all sights and restaurants and it's very clean with helpful staff. It's nothing fancy but I wouldn't hesitate in coming back here on my next visit to the city.

We stayed at this hostal for 3 nights and found it to be quiet and relaxed. The guys that work there were extremely helpful and friendly. The room was a good size with a small balcony, very clean, as was the shared bathroom, I would say don't let the shared bathroom put you off, this is the 3rd shared bathroom... More

We stayed a night on a private room with its own bathroom. Besides the room was nice, it was completely humid. Not only you could feel it on the smell of the room but also observing that the bathroom was never dry! We think that this occured cause the rooms are all manufactured, so the bathrooms are not originally real... More

Thank you. We exactly don't know what is the relationship between a "manufactured bathroom" (in fact, we don't know what this concept is) and a "never dry" bathroom". As we don't understand what you mean with this, please send us an email explaining us what was the situation, specially the "manufactered bathroom" concept, we are very curious. Thank you! More

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.
