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... More

A great budget hostel with good internet connection and clean bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms. Only stayed for one night as myself and my friend were moving on and needed somewhere cheap and easy. It is in a perfect location in the city☺️ my only downside was my sleepless night in the Girls Dorm from a number of guests packing in... More

Got an amazing price with 3 other friends for 3 nights. The location is excellent and only 10 to15 mins mins walking distance to the centre. The hostel has a room just for girls which is good and the reception was so helpful with directions and recommendations.

It's just an average hostel, well located, it was clean, stuff was helpful, internet worked very well but it dasn't have place for people to socialize so I wouldn't recommend this place to anybody who wants to make new friendship on their journey.

Diagonal House has bed bugs! After one night my partner and I left covered in bites, and now have to deal with disinfecting all of our things. I am giving it 'poor' and not 'terrible' because it has a good location and is reasonably priced. The facilities are OK, but the place is quite grubby. It was a sad end... More

The double room n.5 is small stale place with bad ventilation, a dirty carpet, small window with a view on the washing mashine placed in the courtyard a bit bigger than a dog house. The worst experience was sleeping in two persons on the cheap spring mattresses unless you like sleeping on the seesaw. Bathroom is fully funcional but with... More

The hostel was in a good place, near metro and everything important were close enough. Staff was mostly kind and very helpful. Our first room behind the toilets was terrible, the window opened to the terrace and there was a washing machine behind our window so people washed their clothes there and they could watch inside our room. The bed... More

Nice budget hostel located next to the Passeig de Gracia. Beds in dorms are located a little bit too close to each other. I didn't have a problems with falling asleep. There were free lockers for all the guests.

Room was okay, beds comfy enough and a place to store things beside your bed e.g. phone, book etc. Reasonable location but not great, definitely found better. Not bad if you want to walk. Staff are okay though their english isn't great so didn't talk really at all. Showers and toilets are incredibly small, can just about fit in. Kitchen... More

Good position, the metro is very close and is not far from the city center even if you want to walk.Staff is very friendly and helpful. You have your own key so you can come and go every time you want. I'll be back.

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.
