Me and my boyfriend was in barcelona for a long weekend, 5 days. We are super happy with the stay at hostal express. The only thing we missed was a small refrigerator. But its a hostel so what more can we expect that it was very nice and clean and low price!

-Το μόνο καλό αυτού του hostal ήταν ότι είναι πολύ κοντά σε στάση τρένου. περίπου 200 μέτρα από τον σταθμό "gracia". 200 meters from the train station "gracia". -Και καλό σήμα wi-fi. Good signal Wi-Fi -Πάρα πολύ μικρό δωμάτιο. είχε μόνο τρία μικρά κρεβάτια και μία καρέκλα. κι έναν καλόγερο με πέντε κρεμάστρες να κρεμάσεις τα ρούχα σου. Τίποτε άλλο!!!... More

New and stylish interior. Big rooms with bid beds, very clean. It was very easy to access the hotel. It wasn't my first time in Barcelona so I didn't need any help from receprion. But you can find downstair maps that you can need during your trip. The area is very quite. I strongly recommend this hotel to everybody!

I stayed here for almost two weeks in September 2013, and will be happy to return if I am ever again in Barcelona. The hotel is small, but it has everything needed for a budget traveller. The rooms are new, clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed the simple modern design and the updated bathroom facilities. This was my first experience... More

To be honest I booked this Hostel by mistake - I thought I had booked a proper Hotel for our 1 night stay in Barcelona until we arrived outside and to my shock found it was a 'hostel'! My partner was not impressed, as neither of us had stayed in a hostel before and we were both thinking the worst... More

This is a tiny boutique hotel located on a tiny street in the Gracia section of Barcelona. The metro station is right on the corner and has many restaurants to choose from in the surrounding streets. The quad room was just the right size with a nice decor and a private bathroom. Could have been a little cleaner.

The Hostal is in a fantastic location and only 10-15 minutes walk away to the city centre. The Gracia area is very nice and there are lots of coffee shops, bars and restaurants in the area. The rooms are basic but clean and suitable for a short term stay. You get free WIFI access. We shared the bathroom with two... More

After being put into the smallest room I have ever seen which would be better used as a cupboard we asked to be moved which after a further night was accommodated but not after much rudeness from the staff. When asked why we wanted to move I said that the rotting condom outside the window and the size of the... More

The room was very clean but a bit too small for 2 adults. The bed was super tiny. The pillows weren't that great too, I suggest people who can't sleep with soft pillows to bring their own or request for some more. There's a locker that could store luggages which cost 2 euros only - fair enough. I would say... More
