I liked this hostel, and I would recomend it. The location is great, both hostel and neighborhood feels safe, nice staff, and the private room with a balcony was great. But, it´s so dirty!! Not our room, when we arrived it was clean and even smelled of clean sheets. That was great! But the kitchen is a mess! I wouldn´t... More

My stay was astounding. By far the BEST hostel in Europe! If you stay at ART CITY HOSTEL--expect 5-star treatment, great facilities, pub crawls on weekends. David, Paolo, Paulina, and Gonzalo are very professional staff, provide guests with very good hospitality. You won't be disappointed if you book a room or bed at ART CITY HOSTEL. Give them a try,...

Myself and a few other girls stayed here for 5 nights in October, we had such an amazing time in Barcelona. The hostel is very comfortable and homely, the beds were great! It's also a very safe hostel, nothing was stolen, nor did we worry about thief's. We had a girl Harriot from Australia who was working in the hostel... More

The Hostel was well located and easy to find . We had a private room with a small veranda overlooking the street . The caretakers were friendly and helpful . The room was quiet . The bathroom and kitchen area were basic but had everything we required .

A really nice, laid back hostel. Myself and 4 other friends traveled to Barcelona for the festival and stayed in Art City BCN, and had a great experience. The service and location were phenomenal. The bathrooms weren't the cleanest, but everything worked perfectly and was very comfortable. Would definitely recommend!

This was the last stop on our trip to Europe. We specifically booked a private 3-person room in advance (at least a month in advance, if not more) and were really looking forward to it. We booked this room because we were at a music festival sleeping on the floor of a tent for a week prior in Budapest. We... More

At Art City the staff makes you feel like your part of a larger family. As a solo traveler, I was a bit concerned that it would be cumbersome to meet new people because people usually align with those they travel with or are comfortable with. At Art City however, making friends was effortless. Right away I was warmly welcomed... 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.
