Barcelona, Spain
Reviewed today NEW

Stayed for 4 nights. It's centrally located to everything we wanted to do in Barcelona. The staff is nice, the only improvement is that the kitchen could have the drying racks replaced because mold was growing on it. Otherwise, it was well kept and reasonable priced.

I travelled here with my friend, this was our first time staying in a hostel and I will definitely be doing it again.

Stayed for 2 nights and thought it was a great place to stay. My bunk bed came with fresh sheets and was comfortable, has a light and power socket. Also worth mentioning is the privacy curtain, which makes the difference between a good nights rest. The bathroom was large, clean and well ventilated, well above the standard of most hotels...

Very nice hostel with a family feeling. Big lockers, daily cleaning, great kitchen and cosy and quiet. Good for those who aren't necessarily on a party-trip. The staff is super helpful and there is someone in reception 24/7 to help with any questions/issues.

Clean facilities, nice stuff, privacy due to curtains around bed, big lockers for your personal luggage and belongings, very good location in the middle of the city. I can definitely recommend this location.

Very friendly staff and good storage possibilities for your luggage. The toilets were a bit messy in the afternoon, but they are cleaning every morning so the problem is not bigger than that. Overall recommendable

Hard to find a nice hostel like this for the price you pay. If you want a friendly, and social hostel but without crazy partying this is the place to go. Clean and well functioning hostel. Hard to leave!

Nice customer service! Nice location! Friendly open-minded people from all around the world! I like that there were the curtains on the bed bunks, it gave a sense of privacy!

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.

“If you're going to be getting up early in the morning get everything that you need ready in your locker the night before. It's very difficult to quietly get thing ready in the dark without waking you're fellow guests. You may want to use earplugs if you're a light sleeper yourself.”
