Awful, dirty, non-secure, loud and terrible place in Barcelona. Bathrooms dirty and mostly closed by the staff who didn't really want to clean anything. I know it's a hostel, but it looks more like a homeless shelter or some drug den. I wouldn't recommend it...More

Don't stay at this hostel if you don't want to be robbed. The place has no security and the owners don't bother about that. Please look for another place to stay if you want your things to stay with you. I was robbed in this...More

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
