We were extremely impressed not only by the location and service, but the immaculately clean rooms! Hostels definitely imply some sacrificed comfort, but this place was unusually nice. Our room was cleaned daily, with fresh sheets and towels. There is wifi for the rooms as well. The staff were very helpful and always greeted us with smiles. It is a... More

We had a double room on the fromtside (number11), which had very good isolation from traffic sound and a nice cityview. Shower was hot and strong and staff is very helpful and friendly. The best of the hostal is the... More

Hi! Thanks a lot for sharing your experience in Barcelona City Centre with other guests!

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.
