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.

All the beds have curtains the whole way around, there’s a neat drawer underneath for your belongings. The staff were extremely kind and helpful. Highly recommend for solo travellers who like there own space to chill. Great location as well.

If staying for a month how can we do laundry Or is there any kitchen in 12 bed private dorm Free space to work on our laptops?
Usually they have laundries somewhere on the street. People on the reception should know. If I remember correctly they have just one kitchen.

"Try get a full room!"
"Some Rooms are far from the bathrooms"
"The less people in your room the better!!!"
"If you dont want to fight your way into a top bunk try to request a bottom one when you book"
"There were six bunks in my room. Never having used a bunk bed, I found myself unable to hoist myself into my assigned bunk. If you are similarly challenged, request a bottom bunk up front."
