    I really liked this hostel. The bathroom was clean and the fans and air conditioning helped with the heat. Plus the people are very friendly and knowledgeable about what sights to see and how to book things. It was worth the extra spending money.

    Eixample
    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
