I stayed in the place March 2017. Its location is perfect: near the metro station and close to some of the top tourist attractions. It has a kitchen and vending machines so you can have coffee or get some drinks if you want to. The bathroom and the toilet were clean.

Close to Pg. de la Gracia, walking distance to many sights. Women's dorm was spacious, but if others are noisy, as on the first night, hard to sleep--can have up to 11 guests.Kitchen was adequate but seriously in need of sharp knives, Stove operation an unsolved mystery. Best nearby grocery store Lidl. Organic Grocery store a few doors down, nice...

Stayed in this hostel for a week in feb'17. The whole stay was really pleasant. All the rooms bathrooms and kitchen was always clean and tidy. Someone was always around to check if everything is in order. Perfect place if you're looking to getaway from the chaos of the city. Centrally located and easy access to most places in Barcelona

This hostel was fabulous! The location is great! The receptionist was lovely and helpful! The room was great and the bed with the light, plug and storage area was excellent! The only slight issue is the size of the bathroom spaces but apart from that it was great!

I was moved to this hostel due to circumstances out of my control from previous hostel. I loved this place so much. Was made to feel welcome, given my keys and shown to my room. I was also given a key to a locker in my room also. One negative is that you have to pay 20Euro deposit for your...

I haven't slept in a hostel for years, but this time I pick it up since I only spent there a couple of hours and this was far the cheapest opportunity. I didn't expect much and I was happy at the end. I have seen (but not really used it) fully equipped kitchen, rooms have a lot of space. It...

I can still feel the springs of the matress and the noise was very loud, because the windows were very old. The staff was nice, the hotel was clean and the location was OK. But as I said the mattress was terrible.

Problem of hostels is different...

We stayed at Diagonal House for one night and i was quite underwhelmed. We had a private room that did not look like the pictures. We were put towards to the back of the hostel with only one window but it did not lead to outside, it opened to the laundry room. As a result of this we did not...

A great budget hostel with good internet connection and clean bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms. Only stayed for one night as myself and my friend were moving on and needed somewhere cheap and easy. It is in a perfect location in the city☺️ my only downside was my sleepless night in the Girls Dorm from a number of guests packing in...

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
