I read a lot of negative reviews, so I was positively surprised. We had a triple room, with 3 single beds. The room was big, the bathroom too, everything was clean.

The staff was unbelievably nice. Some of them spoke English was great. The bathroom was small but suitable. The room is simple with few outlets. The best part of the hostal is its location. Walkable to the Rambla and Gaudi's house. Biggest downside is that it is within an apartment building and we kept locking each other out of the... More

A value for money hostel close to the center of Barcelona. Even with a shared bathroom the place is very clean and people there can help you with information. Main disadvantage is that walls are very thin and our room was close to the reception so that we had to wake up very early by the voice of the people... More

The room was indeed too simple. The bathroom could have been newer and in better conditions. The shower curtain did not cover enough and the floor was all wet besides, the drain was bad located and a lot if water remained on the floor.

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.
