This is probably the worst place I've ever stayed in. I knew I wouldn't get much for the price but it was worse than I imagined. The rooms and beds are VERY dirty. They probably haven't cleaned them since the opening. The guy at the...More

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

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
