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

My wallet was stolen when I first touched down in Barcelona. The cash that my friend had in hand was not sufficient to pay for the accommodations for the rest of the journey, not even have to say - food!! Ms Julia has extended her helping hand and ensure we have sufficient food supply during our stay in Buba House.... More

Bresakfast was always a welcome meal and well stocked. If your a light sleeper bring ear plugs, its not... More

Buba House was adorable! The staff/owners were very friendly and helpful. This is only a small hostel and you are in very close quarters will all the other guests which was nice. There is a comfey area to hang out and a nice well equipped kitchen to cook dinner while having a wine and a chat with fellow guests. The... More

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.
