Excellent location. The staff is very friendly and helpful in providing information on how guests can easily visit the city. Free coffee and tea available to all, gives you a quick revival. Hostal's ambient atmosphere fits very well with ambient area in which they are. I wish I could repeat this experience!

Central location. Metro station and bus stop right outside the door. Everyday cleaning. Very polite and helpfull personnel. Maybe a restoration could help but its ok. The beds are for people of maximum height 1.85 m. Extremelly recommended.

Had everything we needed, store outside, cafe on the door step. Great breakfast. Did the tour bus thing and was great value too. The staff were so friendly, all staff there. Not just the receptionist. Felt safe traveling alone with my two teenagers.

We booked a 4 night stay at the cheapest lodgings we could find to be near to the bus station as my colleague has a bit of difficulty walking and we didn't really expect a lot since it was only a hostal. We now know that a hostal isn't a hostel but an often cheaper hotel option in Spain. It...

We stayed here's for 4 nights on our recent trip to Barcelona. Took us a few minutes to work out which floor we needed to alight at from the lift, but we finally got there. We were given a choice of 2 rooms - a very small one facing an inner courtyard and a slightly larger one facing the Grand...

Sure the personal is very nice but this is a “one star dormitory”, nothing else. The “hostel” is a restored apartment, where you hear everything going on, in the street, and in the corridors, being not isolated at all. They charge you way too much for what it's worth.

Dear Sir. We regret that you didn't know where reserved. We are not a "hostel" we are a "HOSTAL" in English a 'guest house ". Yes, our guest house, like many others in Barcelona, and also hotels, is a former private flat that has been modified to provide hotel services. We are not required to provide certain services, such as...

It's a bit hidden, a doorbell with a small label makes it look more like an office entry than a hotel. The room was basic, but clean and perfectly adequate for a short stay. I wasn't planning on spending more time in the room than required to sleep and wash anyway. Very close to Metro, bus and an easy walk...

A friendly staff and a well managed property made our stay in Barcelona very comfortable. The unit was simple and efficient. They provide a small kitchenette to prepare your morning coffee. Properties located walking distance to Barcelona's historic district with lots of restaurants and shopping nearby.

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.
