The double room n.5 is small stale place with bad ventilation, a dirty carpet, small window with a view on the washing mashine placed in the courtyard a bit bigger than a dog house. The worst experience was sleeping in two persons on the cheap spring mattresses unless you like sleeping on the seesaw. Bathroom is fully funcional but with...

The hostel was in a good place, near metro and everything important were close enough. Staff was mostly kind and very helpful. Our first room behind the toilets was terrible, the window opened to the terrace and there was a washing machine behind our window so people washed their clothes there and they could watch inside our room. The bed...

Nice budget hostel located next to the Passeig de Gracia. Beds in dorms are located a little bit too close to each other. I didn't have a problems with falling asleep. There were free lockers for all the guests.

Room was okay, beds comfy enough and a place to store things beside your bed e.g. phone, book etc. Reasonable location but not great, definitely found better. Not bad if you want to walk. Staff are okay though their english isn't great so didn't talk really at all. Showers and toilets are incredibly small, can just about fit in. Kitchen...

Good position, the metro is very close and is not far from the city center even if you want to walk.Staff is very friendly and helpful. You have your own key so you can come and go every time you want. I'll be back.

The location of this hostel is great! Easy access to metro stations, buses and bikeshares. Neat old building with lots of character - the old interiors are very beautiful. The 8 person room was nice - big ornate windows caught the morning light making the room feel open and clean. The beds are small, but comfortable, however, the pillows are...

This is a wonderfully located hostel, with easy access on to the Metro and very close to some of the tourist attractions on foot. The only downside is that it is right on the main road (one of the five main avenues crossing Barcelona) so it can get noisy. The facilities were clean and well maintained. Staff were friendly. Bed...

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
