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.

I can confirm the validity of the previous reviews, this place is a great little find! Excellent location & their customer service is what would be expected from a 4* hotel which is really what elevates this from wanting to call it a "hostel". Rooms are cleaned each day

Decent location. Cleaner in every day. Shampoo and little extras provided. Doors to balcony were a nightmare to close. No kettle which was disappointing. We were on the fourth floor and the lift broke down the last two days of our stay. Overall ok but I wouldn’t go back.

hi what's best way to get here from airport thanks
Dear guest, You have 4 options to come from the airport to our hostel : -Private transfer : We can help you to book a private pick-up service for the price of 39€ total for 3 people with one hand luggage and one big luggage each. This service can be booked with maximum 12 hours before arrival. - Train from the Airport - Terminal 2: You will have to go from luggage claims to the railway station below the Airport, take line R2-Nord to Passeig de Gràcia Station. From the station look for Bruc Street, which is just 2 blocks from the station. Cost: €4 per ticket approximately . - Aerobus: Direct bus from the Airport to Plaça Catalunya, the main square in the city centre.We are 15 minutes walk from Plaza Catalunya. Cost: €6 approximately. If you have a lot of luggage I would recommend taking a taxi to the Hostal, costing an extra €6 - €7. -Subway line 9- From the Airport - Terminal 1 , you can get a metro until Colblanc metro station. Then, you have to change by the blue line ( L-5) until Verdaguer metro station. From this station to our hostel , you can arrive on foot in 3 min.

We are staying here now, and there is zero air conditioning! There is a thermostat in the hallway, but it’s not working in our room or our neighbors. It’s awful.

It doesn't appear that breakfast is included? Is there a place nearby for coffee and something simple?
Hostel Martivale, is in a a square block like a lot of the Eixample area. If you turn right out of the hostel doorway, go down to the Spar shop and turn right again. About halfway down on the right is a lovely friendly French patisserie. Great coffee and amazing pastries.
