We stayed here's for 4 nights on our recent trip to Barcelona. Took us a few minutes to work out which floor we needed to alight at from the lift, but we finally got there. We were given a choice of 2 rooms - a very small one facing an inner courtyard and a slightly larger one facing the Grand... More

Sure the personal is very nice but this is a “one star dormitory”, nothing else. The “hostel” is a restored apartment, where you hear everything going on, in the street, and in the corridors, being not isolated at all. They charge you way too much for what it's worth.

It's a bit hidden, a doorbell with a small label makes it look more like an office entry than a hotel. The room was basic, but clean and perfectly adequate for a short stay. I wasn't planning on spending more time in the room than required to sleep and wash anyway. Very close to Metro, bus and an easy walk... More

A friendly staff and a well managed property made our stay in Barcelona very comfortable. The unit was simple and efficient. They provide a small kitchenette to prepare your morning coffee. Properties located walking distance to Barcelona's historic district with lots of restaurants and shopping nearby.

It is so close to plaça de catalunya (about 10 min on foot). The most helpful staff I've ever met is at this hostal. Small, cozy, cleaned daily room. I and my wife definitely recommend this hostal to others.

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.
