I stayed at Hostel Duo a few days ago. I had a single room with a shared bathroom. The Hostel was in a great area, Exiample. It is more of an upscale neighborhood.

Permanently broken shutters meant we were unable to have any privacy at all as our room looked out onto the communal patio area.To keep our room secure we were obliged to close the windows at night and then to protect our privacy we attempted to cover the windows with sheets. This meant that ,without the currents of air through the...

Stayed for three nights in the female dorm. Wifi is good, bathrooms and shared areas are clean and spacious. Dorms are roomy with lockers - I'm always a fan of a hostel that supplies towels and linen. There is an expensive laundry service, I didn't bother because €5 for the washer per load. Great location right next to Diagonal metro...

This is value for money! It's a hostel but a top notch hostel. Bathrooms are cleaned regularly and the renovation work done is perfect, bright and tidy. There is a lot of road noise so I suggest heavy sleepers only. The wifi isn't the best, if that's important get a hotel and pay more.

We stayed for two nights and were very satisfied with everything! The staff was very sweet and helpful, the rooms and bathrooms very clean and pretty, and we enjoyed the cosy patio. Definitely worth recommending!

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.
