I feel guilty writing this review as actually the people running the hostel were very nice indeed. I have to agree with some other reviews though that it seemed like there was a lot of staff who sort of all chipped in and not as smooth as other places I have said. The bedroom was a mess but I guess...

This is the worst hostel I have ever been to. And I have seen quiet a lot. First of all the Employees of the hostel are incapabel and look a bit confused, which makes your check-in a mess. Then they will give you the key for a room which is not clean. We didn't even get any (Clean) bedsheets and...

I was looking forward to this hostel so muc, but unfortunately it was a big mess. When we entered the staff seemed to high to function and could not even type our booking in Excel. After a long while we got some dirty sheets to sleep on. After a while I felt so dirty from the bed and decided to...

To be honest it was the worst hostel I've ever been to, and since I am low cost traveller I had seen a lot... The place is simply dirty (I can still see this terrible and dirty shower curtain in my nightmares). The staff do not answer to e-mails. There are people (staff? )sleeping in the couch in the living...

Worst hostel I have ever been in. This says a lot coming from a person that is not picky when it comes to hotels because I am always looking for the cheapest (but still decent) hostels as I travel around Europe with my uni friends. We got there and the first thing we were told by the "manager" is that...

The hostel has amazing location and price. But going in there was a mistake. To start with, the person in charge could not tell me the amount per person and didn't know how much to charge. The bed lining was not clean and had a strange smell, we all got insect bites from something we still don't know. Inside the...

Perfect location, but very dirty. Hostel rules are written all across the hostel but none of them are respected, including by the staff, especially on the noise issue. Bathrooms are kept very dirty and in some occasions with no hygienic paper. Rooms are dirty and smelly. There is poor, if any, maintainance of the installations.

You cannot find better place that this one. Amazing people from different part of the world, living like a family. The place is clean, beds are comfortable and the staff is amazing, I really recommend this hostel for people that would like to get to know Barcelona as a Local and to feel its spirit

You can´t beat this hostel´s combination of affordability and location. The hostel was always clean, and the staff were very friendly and competent. The atmosphere was great, especially since the other guests were so friendly and open to socialize. The amenities are great - three bathrooms each with their own shower, and a full, well-stocked kitchen. Overall delighted with my...

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.
