The customer service at the hostel was fantastic. I had to change the days of travel which was not a problem. I also mentioned we were on a honeymoon and on arrival, there was a warm greeting with a bottle of champagne waiting for us. Did not expect this for the price we were paying so it was a welcome...

Really nice place, with friendly employees and a beautiful terrace. The rooms were okay and the location was also pretty good. It was nice that you could always get free coffee and tea, as well as a small free breakfast. Would recommend to others!

Lovely place to stay! Immaculate and clean throughout. Our room came with a nice little outside terrace area (ideal for smokers mate). The staff are friendly and made us feel very welcome. Can't recommend it enough! Situated in a cracking location, just a 5-10 minute walk to the city centre. Would love to return in the near future! Thanks Ella,... More

This is definitely the nicest hostel I have stayed in! The staff were friendly and always willing to help. Free tea and coffee facilities, and a small selection of pastries for breakfast- although we chose to eat out, there was the option. They provided towels; which I wasn't expecting, and the toilet/shower facilities were the best I've seen for a... More

Place is not too fancy, but it has everything you need for a nice and pleasent stay. It is located in a nice neighbourhood, so you can walk from Rambla by foot at night. Hosts are wonderful and if needed will help you regarding all the questions.

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.
