This is seriously a great place to stay. I´d originally had reservations for the sister-hostel of Zoorooms, but the owner emailed me some time before I arrived stating there was an issue and my reservation was changed to here.
Once we arrived, I was truly pleased. It´s in a great area (L´Eixample), close to everything, but far enough away from the noise and craziness of the Raval and Born areas. We had our own room with an en suite shower. The hostel has everything you may need, including a kitchen, computer and tour guide books, is very clean, quite and totally modern. The owner is very knowledgeable and caring. Additionally, it is only minutes away from Passeig de Gracia (and its metro station). We couldn´t have asked for more! I definitely would and will recommend this place in the future.
