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... More

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... More

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.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia
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.
