I liked this hostel very much. It is pretty well located and great for low budget travellers. Good attention. Just one thing: too much noise!! The personel doesn't seems to respect that there are people sleeping in the mornings and they enter into the rooms all the time. Very clean.

I booked this last minute as i wanted a cheep break this summer and love Barcelona. The Hostel was clean and tidy with a well equipped kitchen if you wanted to cook. You can rent sheets and a towel so you dont have to pack sleeping bag and towel. House rules were quite strict, but you dont spend much time...

Great place to stay. Close to everything you need to be and there is a Metro stop a few 100m from them. The bathroom is clean, friendly staff and kitchen area that is clean and for all to use. If you are wanting a hostel where there is a bar and no rules, this isn't the one. But the system...

I think this is honestly the most well equipped, cleanest and most modern hostel I have ever stayed in. It has free wifi, with computers if you don't have your own, they allow you to print your boarding passes for a cost of €1. There is a locker under the bed, €5 deposit. The staff are super friendly and helpful....

My first impression about the hostel is clean and shiny. Smart choice for budget travelers. Very close to the center and attractions, you can reach almost of the places on foot. Close to North station where you can take bus to go to Valencia or Madrid.The coolest thing about this place was the owner- Rebecca, she was absolutely helpful and...

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable 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 recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
