Good location, super friendly staff ,clean bathrooms and a nice terras. Not easy to find at first, door full of gravity and small banner of the hostel, but once installed you will find out that you are not far from all tourist attractions.

Our first two nights were quiet, on the third, this place was worse than a total party hostel. It was so loud, and there were several guys that were just straight up smoking cigarettes  and partying inside the hostel. Our room was filled with smoke. We asked them to go outside, but they wouldn't. There is no staff at night,...

The customer service at the hostel was fantastic. I had to change the days of travel which was not a problem. I also mentioned we were on a honeymoon and on arrival, there was a warm greeting with a bottle of champagne waiting for us. Did not expect this for the price we were paying so it was a welcome...

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.
