The location is perfect, but the room was awful. We stayed near to the central door and we were hearing how everybody was closing the door. Actually they were slamming that door without carrying that other persons may sleep. We didn't came there for 100%...More

We had a very nice stay at Hostal Centro, the room was very nice and clean. The hostel is centrally located and easy to get anywhere from. Just be sure to keep an eye on your stuff in Barcelona ;) Lots of pickpockets...

Great location. Nice people and service. Room cleaning and fresh towels everyday. Good value for money. I would definitely recommend it to those who want to spend their time in Barcelona enjoying the city.

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
