    Not the best hostel I've stayed at, yet not the worst either. It was clean for the most part, except the showers in the morning, around 11h00, after everyone had used them, which is understandable. Friendly and accommodating staff that really interacts with the guests....More

    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

    Usually they have laundries somewhere on the street. People on the reception should know. If I remember correctly they have just one kitchen.
