We stayed in this hostel for 3 nights in a private double room. When I am looking for a hostel (NOT a hotel), I expect a lower price, a bed and a shower. We paid 172 Eur. for three nights, which would have been decent enough. However. The mattress was so bad I got bruises on my body from sticking...

I booked this online. My plans changed so with months of warning I wanted to cancel and hoped a refund. I would of understood if they would take out an administrative fee. But no, they would not refund my money. I made it clear that I was still coming so they couldn't double dip and two payments for the room....

They respected my wish to be on a upper floor to start. That was really helpful because this hotel can be really noisy. The guy at the reception desk could speak ENglish and fluent French. He was nice and friendly. The room was bright but the windows did not close properly. The bedding quality was OK. The good surpirse was...

We stayed at this hostel for 3 nights at the beginning of our trip and then 1 night before heading back to the states. The 24 hour desk people all spoke English for the most part. It was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The balcony/garden area was great. The wifi worked in our second room but not in our first. It...

It is a no frills place, don't expect a 5 stars hotel, it's an 'Hostal'. it was clean as i expected. We had a big, essential room, personal was friendly and helpful, only we gave credit card number only as garancy, and they loaded the complete amouth for the four days -and gave me a receipt- without asking before. great...

I have contacted the hostal by phone from Australia. I wanted to bring a group of teenagers there. I can speak Catalan fluently, because I am actually from Barcelona. The person at the reception was totally unhelpful and rude. I will not make a booking there.

Great location in the city center, all sightseeings nearby. We take a room with shared bathroom and was very clean and cosy. Staff was helpful and english spoken. They dont clean the rooms every day but everything else was OK for the price we paid (50 Euros per night). I will bask again for sure

just returned from a short break to Barcelona. Flew with Ryanair to Gerona which is nowhere near Barcelona, but,all credit to Ryanair, the airport is small and the flights arrive at a reasonable time. Buses are there to meet the flight and take you to the main station in Barcelona for 24 euros each return. The hostel is perfectly situated....

You really do feel like you are in Spain in this hotel. The colour schemes, the shared lounge on every level and the view into the courtyards behind the hotel really make it different to your normal hotel. There are limited services, no laundry, no room service, complicated after hours contact with staff. There is a luggage room, a nice...

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.
