We booked 4 nights at this hostel and we were satisfied by the decision. Very clean, with everything you need in the room (except fridge, but it wasn't very necessary). The street is very lighted, clean and safe. Also, the location is very, very good, it's 30 minutes max walking to Catalunya square. We liked it!

Terrible experience at this seemingly upscale hostel. Arrived an hour early for check in and receptionist would not speak to us until "check in time" even though the hostel was empty. Had a friend join later in the evening...with no receptionist around (only around for 1 hour at check in) he couldn't not enter the building because of the need... More

The hostel is well located and the room we got (3 beds with bathroom outside the room) was clean. However, staff has been very unpleasant and not very helpful. They have not explained were the room is, the bathroom could be used by people from other rooms, despite it was private and we didn't receive the entrance door code. There... More

The hostel/budget hotel is easily reached from the airport from Diaganol station just to the south. Rooms are clean and neat with either shared or own bathrooms. Shared bathrooms are shared between two rooms so you might actually never see anyone else around - so its not as bad as it sounds. Linen is changed every three days, towels every... More

We recently spent 5 weeks travelling in Portugal and Spain, staying in budget/reasonably priced hotels, and Dingdong Express/Barcelona was our only disappointment. The location wasn't bad but the self check-in/no staff on site was problematic, the room was minuscule and there was no air conditioning or exterior windows so it felt claustrophobic and stuffy. We gladly left after one night.

Me and my boyfriend was in barcelona for a long weekend, 5 days. We are super happy with the stay at hostal express. The only thing we missed was a small refrigerator. But its a hostel so what more can we expect that it was very nice and clean and low price!

-Το μόνο καλό αυτού του hostal ήταν ότι είναι πολύ κοντά σε στάση τρένου. περίπου 200 μέτρα από τον σταθμό "gracia". 200 meters from the train station "gracia". -Και καλό σήμα wi-fi.

Staying in Gracia

Neighborhood Profile
Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the center, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theater that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
