It definitely is cheap, but staff is horribly rude and not helpful or kind at all. DO NOT take the shared rooms as there are no established times and other users come in and out as they please without caring at all about other people in the room. We were supposed to get a bathroom for our 4 people bedroom...

The location of the hostel is amazing. In the middle of the center. Rooms are clean, as are the bathrooms. Terrace and building are beautiful, and the people working there are friendly. Only minus is that the rooms are a bit noisy at times.

We were a group of three girls in the city for the weekend, the hostel provided extremely mediocre service and the stay was wasn't unpleasant but it was just okay. Cons- Door key didn't work for the entirety of the trip had to knock and wait for a while especially if it was during the later hours of the night....

Excellent location to reach each sight spot, perfect place for those who want to go for shopping. Handsome and super nice staffs, easy checkin-out. Though I booked only 1 bed for a 8-beds room, but I love the way how they make the beds and the towels, like 5-star standard, so clean and comfortable with AC in the room. The...

The place was clean, and the check-in clerk was quirky, but very nice and helpful. I never saw him again. The rest of the staff was not as nice and un-helpful. The place was quiet. TOO quiet. Like there was hardly anyone there. A bit spooky. The decor was old and not nice. I would not stay here again.

We had a 5-night stay in Hostel Duo back on the last week of May 2016. Location wise, it is nice. It was in Eixample, and i basically love Eixample (just my preference). But the front of the hostel itself is road, i mean road where cars and motorcycles get through it. So it can be quite noisy, especially at...

This old hostel is poorly managed by "smart-phone addicted staff" who do not care. We booked 3 months ahead but found our twin room was GONE to somebody else when we arrived. "I cannot help you, sorry, its a mistake...there is no manager". One customer came to the rescue when she hear of our plight and told the staff person...

The location of the hostel is so close to Sagrada Familia and the other attractions of the city. It's an old building with high ceilings and very nice ambient. Just glued to the Diagonal metro station.

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.
