Old style hostel. Nothing special about it, just it is located in the city centre near la rambla street. Just the location is awesome! Rooms are tiny. From inside looks like some haunted house. Stayed there for 3 days

The person showing me the room was unfriendly and did not respond with full answers to my question. The window was wide open when I arrived with no net so there was mosquitos in the room that bit me during...

Where can I start? First, they will charge you for ANYTHING. To pay the hostel by card, towel, padlock, arriving after 00:00 (10€ if you arrive between 00 and 01, 15€ between 01 and 02 and so on). Second, herbalife ridiculous advertisements ALL OVER!! It's creepy even. They say it's "free breakfast" and keep offering before the arrival. Turns out...

This hostel is located on a busy main street called Grand Via in a city center. It's right next to the University of Barcelona thus excellent for young people. Famous Gaudi building - Casa Batlo and La Pedrera are also very close. Playa de Catalunya, busy street La Rambla and the port are also reachable within few minutes. Lots of...

My arrival started good. I arrived in the middle of the night and got taken care of very well. I could go to sleep immediatly and pay and fix everything the next morning, which created a feeling of trust. But after this first expierience everything went kind of down hill. The rooms and bathrooms weren't really clean, everything was sticky...

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.

“You could get much better accommodation for this money. Just like we did after this experience. The position is good, but the metro connection is so good in Barcelona that it also looses importance at the same time. ”

“We had a room on the west-side which is more loud (since it's at one of the main streets that runs through Barcelona), but also has a nicer view.”

“If you want to have a quiet night, don´t get a room at the streetside. But if you prefer balcony over noise, choose streetside.”
