I had many bad experiences from some hostels in other countries so i wasn't expect much from this one neither but at the moment of arrival i knew that this is a special place. The hostel is near to the wonderful Passeig de Gràcia and Casa Batlló and it's walking distance from the famous La Rambla. What makes this place... More

I was amazed how much I could get for this small price at Buba House. The staff is friendly and attentive to all people staying in their hostel. Very nice light breakfast in the morning and good music in the lobby/kitchen. The kitchen was always clean with enough number of dishes and place. The 6-person room is spacious with space... More

This hostel was really cool. You feel like home there, it is clean and the staff is very nice and helpful, the guy from Czech republic was really cool and helped me a lot his name was marek i guess. I would totally recommend to stay there when in Barcelona. Nice little breakfast as well included in price.

Very well located hostel: close to a central metro station (Passeig de Gracia), a short walk-away from Las Ramblas, el Raval etc. Nice neighbourhood. It's not hard to find if you follow the instructions. It's very clean and well-looked after. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are quite basic but that's enough for what you need when... More

It was our first night of vacation and we were shocked about double room. Very dark room, with one window, which goes to small yard-well with no sunlight. In the morning we met a little coackroach running near bed. Who knows where he was before :) In generally hostel is badly insolated, so we didn't know it's morning or night.... More

Friendly, helpful, all a hostel should be. In addition, excellent location. Breakfast was included, but because of our schedule we did not have breakfast there. Close to metro stop, short walk to Place Catalyuna.

The main appeal for me to book this hostel was the relatively central location and the fact the shared rooms are girls-only. Breakfast was basic but plenty. Kitchen was well equipped for cooking in the afternoons. Water temperature in the showers is temperamental but not a major issue. Staff were friendly and helpful

Whenever I know we're coming back to Barcelona, I will always check out Buba House first. We stayed here two years ago in a single room with two bunk beds and this year we paid a little bit more to stay in a single room with a large queen bed with a street view window, both very affordable and enjoyable....
