A group of 14 of us stayed here this past weekend on a stag do. I wasn't really optimistic about saying in a hostel, as you here terrible things, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Decent little hostel. Curtains giving you privacy on your bunks is a good idea and each bedspace has its own little light and plug socket. All facilities and amenities are very clean and modern and staff are very helpful and friendly. Hostel is pretty difficult to find due to the small sign but is a great big wooden door on...

The hotel advertises their private parking and that's the first reason for which I chose this hotel since I have rented a car to drive my parents who were staying in a more comfortable hotel. What this hotel failed to advertise is the fact that the private parking is in another neighborhood. So in order to use the car in...

With great location, nice kitchen with fridge and all staff for cooking, nice rooms and beds with curtains. As for me it's so important to have...

I spent one night here before leaving Barcelona as my previous hostel was full for the night and this was closer to the bus station for my early-morning departure. The hostel was a little difficult to find at first, as it's not actually on the street of its address but instead on an angle facing the adjoining intersection. The hostel...

Stayed in April, 2010. Had my doubts about hostels, never stayed in one... heard both great and really scary/creepy stories about them. The Hip Karma was a really good experience for me! My main concern was the shared bathroom, and room... sharing with total strangers? How about privacy? How would that work out? Well, everything turned out great! It was...

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.
