After a horrific experience at another hostel in Barcelona my friend and I fled here for our remaining two nights. It was like night and day. The staff were friendly, the rooms were spic and span- we were told our beds were newly installed and we were the first to use them, huzzah. The setup is sort of odd with... More

This hostel was ok - the private room we paid for was extremely tiny. Basically, only the bed fit. The bathroom we shared with two other private rooms was horrendous; the shower didn't look like it had been cleaned in a while. No included breakfast. The staff were helpful though and the kitchen looked reasonably clean.

My partner & I booked (private room with en suite) because of fairly consistent reviews & a decent price, & we got what we expected. Clean, tidy room & bathroom (sparse & white washed, but we booked a hostel, not the Ritz Carlton). Staff are super friendly, knowledgable & always keen to offer their help. We were given a map...

Stayed here with my boyfriend in a private ensuite room up in the attic. The smell was hella weird the whole time, it always felt damp and it was extremely cold when we came.

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.
