03-09 April 2015 I write this review from the perspective of wanting a decent low price hotel, with modern amenities and facilities. My stay of six days in April 2015 was a joy and I was happy to spend £370 for six nights. If you are looking for a top range hotel, or something quite luxurious you will probably need... More

This hostel was located near to a metro and getting around Barcelona from this base was very easy. The hostel itself was clean and spacious though very basic - but doesn't pretend to be anything more than that. The shared bathroom wasn't an issue at the time we went but may be during busy periods. The lift in this hostel... More

Perfect location, perfect stuff, always ready to help. If you have any questions you are always welcome ------ The lift is not going up/down if someone forgot to close the doors. So we had to climb up to 5th floor by foot several times - going down is much easier in this case, but still not satisfying. The ceiling of... More

The location is perfect. Between La Pedrera (Casa Mila), Casa Batllo, and La Sagrada Familia. Its a real walking range. Near to Metro as well if you want to explore the city. The receptionist was very nice, gave us a map of Barcelona and transportation map. The room was nice, overall clean.The WiFi on my room was really good. Really... More

Staff were very accommodating and helped my cousin and I out every way possible as we were new to the city. Hostel is perfect for a few nights close shops and cafes. Only downside is that the bathroom wasn't cleaned very well (when sharing with 2 other rooms) and when using my Australian hairdryer the whole floor lost power.

I guess everybody can have problems, right? The main point os how we deal with that. And simply don't know how to help people or deal with problems. The hostel is just "ok", but the team is awful. I don't recommend it at all. Barcelona can be much better.

Good Hostel. Well connected with most of the attractions in Barcelona. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Little expensive compared to other hostels but worth the money spent. The old style lift is takes you to older times.

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.
