I really liked my stay in this hostel. The people were very friendly there and the atmosphere was nice. The night time was always very peaceful in the hostel which made for a good night sleep after a busy day! If I was to come back to Barcelona, Soul Backpackers would definitely be the place for me to stay! :)

Stayed here for 3 nights and its just awesome! The staffs were friendly and you get to meet lots of cool people. The atmosphere at the hostel was just fantastic. Would recommend for people visiting Barcelona to stay here as it is quite near to most of the tourist attraction. Definitle going to stay here next time I visit Barcelona.... More

The hostel is in a good location and it has a very nice terrace and a bright dining room. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The only bad thing is that I was not given the key for the shared room, so the door stays open. There is a big cupboard with a locker where you can put your... More

The atmosphere in this hostel is very chilled, the staff are very helpful and man the desk 24 hours a day. It is an old Barcelona townhouse with a nice and large terrace out the back where you can sit, although prepare to be joined by all the resident smokers. Kitchen and showers are nice and clean, free bottles of... More

A very cozy hostel that feels just like a big house! Everything was very clean and nice atmosphere - lots of plants, friendly staff, and sometimes someone playing the guitar. Huge terrace too, which will be a great place to hang out in the summer. And you can't beat the location - 10 - 15 mins to Gothic or Born,... More

I was staying here for 3 days. It was one of the best hostels that I've stayed. Very good location - Eixample, city centre; you can go almost everywhere by foot. Another thing - it's very cosy hostel: very clean, good interior, nice music is played during the day in common areas) Personal is very helpful, polite and just nice.... More

It's homey, the staff are friendly and always helpful, the hostel is clean, location is more than great. Excellent atmosphere makes you feel at home. The location of the hostel is an asset as well. It's close to major tourist attractions and to shops and relatively cheap restaurants. I can see only the advantages. :)

And Ignazy is very hard working owner of this hostel. Free wi fi....but not too fast time to time. Nice location in the centre of the city.

Loved this place! The hostel staff were very nice. Their bed linen and towel smelled so fresh and clean. Be sure to know the address, specifically the number, if its your first time going there. It's in the second floor of a mix use building, majority residential units, so unlike other hostels, it does not have a big signboard indicating... More

I made a reservation for a 4 person bedroom and send an email that I would arrive late in the night. ´No problem´ was the answer. Upon my arrival I was told they didn´t have a place in the 4 person bedroom anymore because of a double booking the girl at the reception didn´t know of. But the next day... 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.
