Overall this hostel is as it should be. It's clean, staff is friendly and it's affordable. However the photo's on tripadvisor do make it appear prettier than the hostel is. We were here only for one night, and for that it was just fine. For a longer stay I would have preferred another place with some more and roomier common...

We felt really at home at Soul Backpackers and would totally go back anytime! It's clean enough and has lots of places where you can hang out - including a big terrace, wonderfully painted in different shades of blue. Other than that, there is always someone in the reception and they will take so good care of you because everyone...

I had a good time at this hostel although the room was rather a 10 bed dorm than a 6 as it had no door between the two room. Walkable distance from the main tourist places. The garden is awesome and it's a very good place to relax if you had enough of the busy city. Staff was so nice....

I spent six nights in one of the 12 bed dorm rooms. The general vibe of the hostel was chilled, quiet and comfortable. They have small common areas with comfortable couches and a huge terrace that gets plenty of sun during the day. The kitchen was large and well stocked with cooking utensils and they had an acoustic guitar in...

Soul Backpackers was a great place to stay during my week in Barcelona! Great location; you could easily walk almost everywhere in the city centre. Friendly staff, cool fellow travelers. I felt like living in a shared flat in Barcelona, which by the way is an awesome city. Clean rooms, good showers, nice garden, wifi working, kitchen with enough space...

Soul backpackers hostel is not a perfect hostel but the way people live together really makes up for it.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Soul Backpackers Barcelona - a hostel with soul. This cozy and charming hostel is located in a beautiful historic building of l'Eixample in the heart of Barcelona's modern city. It is only a 10 minute walk to the city centre (Placa Catalunya and Les Rambles), a 5 minute walk to the Old City, and only one block to the closest metro station (Girona Metro). So, main attractions like Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo, Citadel Park and the districts of Gracia, Sant Antoni and the Barceloneta are all readily accessible. Small and cozy 26-bed hostel is located on the main floor of a Modernist building of the Catalan bourgeoisie. This apartment-style space features its original high ceilings and colour tiled floors, making the hostel a unique place to stay. In addition, our large exterior terrace is the perfect place to relax after a long day of visiting the city and to keep cool on hot summer days.Although a 19th century building, the hostel has all the comforts and conveniences of the 21st century - wireless internet, a computer, air conditioning, central heating, elevator, clean communal kitchen, and laundry services - the perfect fusion between Modernism and the modern world. We invite you to a hostel for those who want to experience the sights and sounds of Barcelona while having a clean and quiet place to sleep at night. Our friendly and approachable staff strive to offer you a warm welcome and provide you with any information you may need. We aim to offer a comfortable atmosphere that fosters a spirit of respect and a sense of community through activities and events - a hostel with soul. ... more   less
