The double private room was really overpriced compared to what you get for your money. Windows are facing a really noisy street, so it makes quit impossible to sleep early in the morning due to the sound of traffic. I have visited Barca few times, so I would really recommend to find a different hostel.

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...

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.

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...

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.
