The location is perfect, but the room was awful. We stayed near to the central door and we were hearing how everybody was closing the door. Actually they were slamming that door without carrying that other persons may sleep. We didn't came there for 100% comfort cuz we were coming only to sleep there, but the room was awful awful...

The location and price of this hostel are perfect. The bathroom was okay. Unfortunately we only had a very small curtain in the room, that did not fit the window. Also the double bed was a bit small for us (but we are very tall). The room itself was a bit outdated and could use some freshening up. But considering...

I read a lot of negative reviews, so I was positively surprised. We had a triple room, with 3 single beds. The room was big, the bathroom too, everything was clean. We even had a balcony towards a huge interior yard, which was great! There was a table and chairs in the balcony, a small one in the room too....

The staff was unbelievably nice. Some of them spoke English was great. The bathroom was small but suitable. The room is simple with few outlets. The best part of the hostal is its location. Walkable to the Rambla and Gaudi's house. Biggest downside is that it is within an apartment building and we kept locking each other out of the...

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.
