BCN Eixample Hostel promises much but offers little and not what is promised. Moreover, do not be fooled by good reviews from less than discerning travelers. Two showers for 25 and more people, a 3x3 dining area with a table and six chairs for the same 25 to "breakfast" and a small residential filter coffee machine that cannot make more than six cups of coffee for all the guests are only some of the irritations.
The double bed we had to sleep on was broken and the mattress fell partially through it when we tried to sleep on it. We reported it to the owner / manager the first morning. Five days later there was still no attempt to fix it and the owner refused our request for an alternative room or bed.
Nothing in the hostel is clean. The showers are dried out during the day, but not cleaned, e.g. long hair remained in the showers for days.
We can illustrate many other weak points, but the above suffice to warn all ... spend eight to ten Euros more and stay somewhere else.
The only good thing about the hostel is its location in proximity of Barcelona Sants station and some tourist attractions.More
