Overall is quiet in this hostel during my stay. Slept quite well and if you look for city site seeing, this location is excellent for getting around since just right up the Metro exit. But during my stay, my food stored in the kitcen's fridge has been eaten half only in one night without my permission. I've informed the staff... More

Great location just outside metro. Easy to reach by bus or metro. Easy access to other sites. Very nice place and I would give it a good rating except attention to cleaning. Kitchen, terrace but the tables were never cleaned. Our room had dirt on the floor and it was difficult to find TP in the bathrooms. Please fix things... More

I stayed here for three nights and it was a perfect headquarter for exploring Barcelona. The Underground is just outside and it is also nice to walk Rambla de Catalunya down to Placa de Catalunya. It is clean, the staff is helpful and there is a peaceful terrace.

Stayed 2 nights in 4 bed dorms which was located on patio side so very quiet. I was pleasantly surprised as this is an apartment converted into a hostel but large enough with few good sizes bathrooms. There is a kitchen where you can store food and drinks and large common room with a terrace. Very quiet by night which... More

Friendly and helpful staff, great location, very good transport connections. Lots of restaurants, bakeries and cafes are nearby. Clean and cozy room, the only bad thing - no air condicioning. Great terrace!

I have visited Barcelona several times. This is one of the best located hotels I have stayed. Between the Paseo Cataluna and Paseo de Gracia. The most see streets in Barcelona. Clean. Friendly staff. Theyt game lots of tips of what to see and do. Highly recommended. Bathrooms like everywhere in Europe small and odd for American standards.

It's location is it's best feature, relatively central to town and great public transport links. We had a room at the front of the building which had a small indoor balcony area looking out onto Carrer del Rossello. The staff were great, we checked in around 1am without any problems. Bed was clean and comfortable, however the bathrooms/showers although plentiful,... More

I stayed at this place based on the great reviews here. I am guessing the place must have really went downhill quickly? Firstly the staff were rather rude and unfriendly. It was obvious they hated their job and didn't want to be there. There were only two bathrooms, and one of the showers in the bathrooms was out of order!... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
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.
