This hostel is a little gem. Not posh, not pretentious, but genuine and with a sincere mood. It is located in an early XX century building (making you feel almost local) very close to Casa Battlo and La Pedrera. Walls are coloured and the couches in the hall gives an overall atmosphere of coziness. The facilities may not be super... More

Buba House is a nice hostel, situated in the heart of Barcelona. It's just 5 minute walk away from Placa Catalunya and the city center. The facilities are OK, nothing exceptional, but you will be ok for 2-3 nights stay. Overall it's a nice place to stay in, while you are visiting Barcelona.

We arrived to the hostel later than expected because of a flight delay and they still didn't manage to change the sheets. I've been to hostels where I had to put sheets on the bed myself (which would have been fine) but they literally had not taken the sheets off the bed from the last guests stay despite us arriving...

We spent 3 nights at Buba House last week and really liked it. The hostel is essentially in an apartment building above some shops. We stayed in a twin room - downfall here is the bunk beds, obviously great for saving space but they didn't seem that sturdy. The bathrooms were nice, and very clean for a hostel! There is... More

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

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.
