    A nice hostel, close to the city center, just 15 minutes walking to Placa Catalunya, where La Rambla starts. Barcelona is a party city, but if you want a quieter place to stay, this is the place and I was looking for such a place.More

    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
