The position of the hostel is in the city center close to the underground station and some of the main attractions. The rooms are huge and clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of free food left by previous guests. The staff is nice and helpful. The only negative thing were the tiny...

I stayed in the place March 2017. Its location is perfect: near the metro station and close to some of the top tourist attractions. It has a kitchen and vending machines so you can have coffee or get some drinks if you want to. The bathroom and the toilet were clean.

Close to Pg. de la Gracia, walking distance to many sights. Women's dorm was spacious, but if others are noisy, as on the first night, hard to sleep--can have up to 11 guests.Kitchen was adequate but seriously in need of sharp knives, Stove operation an unsolved mystery. Best nearby grocery store Lidl. Organic Grocery store a few doors down, nice...

Stayed in this hostel for a week in feb'17. The whole stay was really pleasant. All the rooms bathrooms and kitchen was always clean and tidy. Someone was always around to check if everything is in order. Perfect place if you're looking to getaway from the chaos of the city. Centrally located and easy access to most places in Barcelona

This hostel was fabulous! The location is great! The receptionist was lovely and helpful! The room was great and the bed with the light, plug and storage area was excellent! The only slight issue is the size of the bathroom spaces but apart from that it was great!

I was moved to this hostel due to circumstances out of my control from previous hostel. I loved this place so much. Was made to feel welcome, given my keys and shown to my room. I was also given a key to a locker in my room also. One negative is that you have to pay 20Euro deposit for your...

I haven't slept in a hostel for years, but this time I pick it up since I only spent there a couple of hours and this was far the cheapest opportunity. I didn't expect much and I was happy at the end. I have seen (but not really used it) fully equipped kitchen, rooms have a lot of space. It...

I can still feel the springs of the matress and the noise was very loud, because the windows were very old. The staff was nice, the hotel was clean and the location was OK. But as I said the mattress was terrible.

It is a clean place, good and silent bed, thoughtfull (large mirror in the girls shower room, with an extra mirror for make-up, for example), towels for rent for 1 euro and exchangeable througout your stay, room for meals, kitchen available, friendly staff, good location, lots of tourist information available and help from the staff. Problem of hostels is different...

We stayed at Diagonal House for one night and i was quite underwhelmed. We had a private room that did not look like the pictures. We were put towards to the back of the hostel with only one window but it did not lead to outside, it opened to the laundry room. As a result of this we did not...

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.
