Primavera Hostel has heart. I was very lucky to spend four nights in this wonderful hostel -- situated in a gorgeous historic building -- at the beginning of June and would recommend it without reservation to other guests. Rooms are absolutely spotless, very well decorated (the designer has done a phenomenal job!), and comfortable. This is a hostel that feels more like a cozy shared flat, and has a nice mix of common areas and two kitchens. It also has spotless bathrooms with strong, hot showers. I never needed to wait to use a shower or toilet.
Location is outstanding -- just a few seconds away from a metro station with two lines, five minutes to Sagrada Familia, and just 10-15 minutes walking to other major sites, including both Gaudi houses. There are also some great restaurants and bars near by (ask for directions to the Italian one, trust me!) that represent exceptional value -- these are places frequented by locals, and not the tourist traps present closer to the sea. At night, I would recommend you walk 10 minutes to the Vila de Gracia area for great pubs.
The best feature of this hostel, though, is the staff. They bend over backwards to make sure you have a great time in Barcelona and to promote a friendly atmosphere in the hostel.
Is there anything missing? Not really -- I just wish there was a cork board available to have left a note saying how very much I adored the hostel and staff! Thank you, Primavera!
