If you can't afford a nice hotel and don't want to go for the regular hostel, then this hostal is your place! Absolutely amazing staff, preparing something special for their guests every night, great rooms, all clean and nice, good clientele and really close to, well, everything!

Our experience of this hostel was fine. It was well run and clean, however the room was small. The location is ideal, very central and close several metro stations. We had a balcony room which was nice but the traffic noise was significant and the door to the room comes straight off the reception area. The biggest problem with the...

We stayed in BCN Hostal Central in April 2015, for 4 nights. The location is great, we basically walked to most of the sites, but if you want to use metro, it is just few steps away. The hostel is located appx. 5 mins walk from Placa Catalunya - which is very convenient, as the Aero buses from El Prat...

We had a great experience during our stay in the hostal. Even though the hostal is a litle oldfashion, the room was always clean and there was good wifi conection. It is located right in the centre, close to catalunya square. Staff was really nice and helpful. A special and big thanks to the russian receptionist katia. Everything was great.

We were staying in quadruple room with shared bathroom with my friends. The room was small and modest, but we didn't mind at all as it was cleaned up every day, bathroom was also clean and we didn't have to wait for a shower, even when it was August. Staff was really nice and helpful. I recommend you to pay...

I booked this room in advance, and looked forward to 4 days in Barcelona. The people working here was nice. But the place itself, the rooms and the atmosphere is like an old East European spy movie from the early '70s. I can hardly describe my dissapointment entering the small, creepy room. The room was overviewing a " backyard" that...

I want to warn those who intend to stay in this hostel: my daughter stayed there for several nights in August with three friends. She enjoyed her stay very much until she returned to her room one evening and found that her iPod and charger (total worth 250 euros) had disappeared during the day. The door was locked. She reported...

This "Hostal" was almost perfect. I gave it 4 stars because of the staff. very disinterested and uninviting. I am American, so I guess I am used to the over the top greetings and customer service. That being said this place is excellent for the value. You can come and go 24 hours. They take your key when you leave...

We stayed at the double with bathroom which appeared to be triplets (three single beds) with bathroom but we reassembled the beds so it was practically a double. Bathroom was clean and shower good. The staff seemed a little bit disinterested of the customers but that didn't bother us. That is a lot better than faking to be nice and...

The staff were really friendly, helpful and spoke good English. I stayed in a single room which was basic but clean and tidy. New towels were provided each day. There was a communal area with complimentary tea and coffee. You could buy a host of drinks (beer, water, coke) from reception. Free WiFi and a computer which you could use...

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.
