I've been there for a week with my friends. The hostel was on a floor of a big palace, and I found it very strange because I was used to find hostels in separate buildings, but then I understood it was typical of Barcelona to have these kind of hostels. For this reason we couldn't make too much noise and...

This hostel is truly awesome, loved the owner, great staff, decent breakfast, perfectly located and most of all it has a lovely terrace. Ideal for having breakfast or having a nice and quiet drink after a long day of sight seeing or even clubbing! Definitely will visit again, sooner the better!

The owner is probably the nicest human being in Barcelona. He is super knowledgeable about the city, helpful with everything, and takes amazing care of his hostel. It is clean, fun, stocked with beers for only 1 euro... but it isn't ever too crazy and loud. Definitely a fun place to be, and a place you can still catch lots...

I loved it, best hostel I've ever!!! been in Europe. For that price (but off-season) I just couldn't believe it! Lovely staff and the guests were also very nice. It was as quiet as hostel can be, and the facilities (kitchen, living room etc) were pleasant. Anytime again!

The hostel is located near the metro station but you can also easily get to the main turistic attractions on foot (approximately 20 minutes). Cheap restaurants nearby with good quality food. The staff in the hostel is very helpful and keen to talk. Rooms clean (staff provide clean sheets for each guest)with six beds in each of them. There is...

It's not another fun and party hostel in Barcelona, but rather quiet and peaceful place to sleep in. The staff is very open and friendly, willing to recommend nice places to see or/and eat at. The hostel may be a bit difficult to find for the first time, but its location is really good. It takes about 5 minutes to...

Directions were not given properly in the website. They gave a wrong direction and I was searching for more than half an hour from the so called nearest metro station. Too many useless rules to keep the guests calm and quite. Guests were entering the room in the mid night disturbing everyone but they didn't allow me to shower in...

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.

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.
