We have just come back from 4 nights in Buba house! Found the hostel to be very comfortable, we had a superior double on the carrera de Arago it was a bit noisy with the doors open but didn't cause us any problems. Bedding and towels provided free tea and coffee all day which was great after a day out.... More

The hostel was superb: quiet, cleaned and in a good location. Very good extra services: you can use the computer for free, printing, the breakfast is very good, you can get towels for free. More that that all the members of the staff are amazing: they are helpful, kind, friendly... If I have the chance to go to Barcelona again,... More

Buba House was one of my favorite hostels I stayed at. It is in a great location, close to the metro. It's an easy walk to get there. The staff was incredibly welcoming. Julia, I believe was her name, was so sweet and helped with directions, recommendations of what to see and just being all-around friendly. My friend's shoes were... More

Buba house is well located in the centre. Few minutes walk away. The staff are nice and very helpful. The room is clean and comfortable bed. The bathrooms are clean. Breakfast was decent. It was just a bit cold during our stay and there was no hot water in the shower left. All in all quite a pleasant stay. Will... More

Buba House was an absolutely dream. They have awesome single rooms at ridiculous rates (particularly in the off-season), a great full kitchen set up and some of the nicest and most helpful staff I've come across. Super clean rooms and facilities, and as much community or privacy as you like. The common area is large and inviting, and their set... More

Buba House is cute and dainty hostel just off the Passeig De Gracias. It's about a 10-15 walk from Place de Catalunya and the famous La Ramblas. Rooms were nice and clean with shared bathrooms for all guests albeit a little small. Staff were good and very helpful and also breakfast is also included which was very handy. All in... More

Buba House is located in a couple of apartments just off La Ramblas. My boyfriend and I stayed in a double room with shared bathroom for two nights. The room was very clean and average sized. Unlike most hostels in Barcelona, Buba House is reasonably quiet. The only downfall is the bathrooms which are quite dated and only one shower... 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.
