The rooms as well as the bathrooms and restrooms were very clean and tidy, the overall atmosphere in the hostel is very good - met lots of amazing people, it is very easy to make friends by eating dinner together. The staff was also very friendly and helpful, I felt as if I was at home.

Staff is kind, for 5 euros you get dinner and a beer every night and met some awesome people during my stay. Rooms are clean and fresh. My only concern is that there's no kitchen to use. Otherwise it was great.

So let's start with saying some staff were really friendly and others not so much. When we checked in we got very basic service. No recommendations for anything and didn't even really try to be helpful. However others, who lived there I think and were just "about" were friendly and asking us questions about us etc. The room was nice,...

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.
