Got an amazing price with 3 other friends for 3 nights. The location is excellent and only 10 to15 mins mins walking distance to the centre. The hostel has a room just for girls which is good and the reception was so helpful with directions and recommendations.

It's just an average hostel, well located, it was clean, stuff was helpful, internet worked very well but it dasn't have place for people to socialize so I wouldn't recommend this place to anybody who wants to make new friendship on their journey.

Diagonal House has bed bugs! After one night my partner and I left covered in bites, and now have to deal with disinfecting all of our things. I am giving it 'poor' and not 'terrible' because it has a good location and is reasonably priced. The facilities are OK, but the place is quite grubby. It was a sad end...

The double room n.5 is small stale place with bad ventilation, a dirty carpet, small window with a view on the washing mashine placed in the courtyard a bit bigger than a dog house. The worst experience was sleeping in two persons on the cheap spring mattresses unless you like sleeping on the seesaw. Bathroom is fully funcional but with...

The hostel was in a good place, near metro and everything important were close enough. Staff was mostly kind and very helpful. Our first room behind the toilets was terrible, the window opened to the terrace and there was a washing machine behind our window so people washed their clothes there and they could watch inside our room. The bed...

Nice budget hostel located next to the Passeig de Gracia. Beds in dorms are located a little bit too close to each other. I didn't have a problems with falling asleep. There were free lockers for all the guests.

Room was okay, beds comfy enough and a place to store things beside your bed e.g. phone, book etc. Reasonable location but not great, definitely found better. Not bad if you want to walk. Staff are okay though their english isn't great so didn't talk really at all. Showers and toilets are incredibly small, can just about fit in. Kitchen...

Good position, the metro is very close and is not far from the city center even if you want to walk.Staff is very friendly and helpful. You have your own key so you can come and go every time you want. I'll be back.

The location of this hostel is great! Easy access to metro stations, buses and bikeshares. Neat old building with lots of character - the old interiors are very beautiful. The 8 person room was nice - big ornate windows caught the morning light making the room feel open and clean. The beds are small, but comfortable, however, the pillows are...

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
