The Buba House is a great place to stay in BCN! Our double room offered everything we needed, we only missed an air condition due to the fact that it was very hot all day and especially at night and the ventilator was loud and, I'm sure, needs more energy than an AC would do. Unfortunately we should not usw... More

The room is small and very hot , no Air condicionating and makes it impossible to sleep in the summer. The bathroom is very small and not very clean. Breakfast consists of milk, orange juice, croissant, bread, butter and eggs. The location are very good.

Four of us stayed in the 6 bedroom dorm for a week and we loved it! The room was great and spacious, with comfy beds, and there was a locker each which was great. The bathrooms were nice and never too busy, the breakfast was good, the staff were lovely and overall it was a great, affordable hostel in a... More

This is a cosy hostel which really makes you feel at home. Rooms are basic but have everything you need, and the staff on reception are always willing to answer any questions. A good location near Passeig de Gracia and plenty of really good restaurants.

Thinnest matress I've ever seen, moldy shower, very hot room without airconditioning and lots of street noise, with other words... no sleep at all. But worst of all... bed bugs which have ruined my entire holiday in Barcelona. DO NOT STAY THERE!

Our flight was delayed and one of the staff stayed late to check us in. All of the staff we encountered were very nice and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was good and powerful. I would definitely recommend it.

Couldn't fault this place really for the price you pay. I stayed here with 2 friends in the 6 birth dorm and it was perfect, for only €9 a night. The breakfast was just a God send (toast, boiled eggs, cereal, croissants and hot drinks) and the beds were perfect. It does lack a communal room where people hang out... More

I thoroughly recommend the Buba House as a great place to stay if you are visiting Barcelona on a budget. Well located close to Los Ramblos. The building is non descript and unspiring from the outside but like the Tardis when you go inside. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable with a very pleasant decor. The free breakfast...

We stayed at Buba House in September 2015 and the place is really nice! The location is perfect and the staff is very friendly. They have everything you may want from a hostel - breakfast, towels, linens, two bathrooms. The only thing that is not good - the double room is very noisy because it is located just above the...

Stayed in Berlin just before Barcelona for the exact same price so was expecting something similar but unfortunately it wasn't as good. Slightly difficult to find as the sign isn't very big, lots of stairs to climb but that doesn't really bother me! There is a lift but it's pretty dodgy looking! Loved the style of the rooms and it...

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.
