Gracia City Hostel1.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Guys noisy and messy. Added noise by , mostly, guests and staff loud conversation just outside the hotel (alley) made it very difficult to sleep.
the hostel had great reviews so I decided to stay but there are some cons. Pros: good location, close to diagonal, very clean. Cons: the shower has a really weird system. You have to keep pushing the handle to get water and the handle also has the temperature control, so temperature changes as you push and you do it every 30 sec or so. And the light turns off as frequent as the shower, so we have to get out of shower and wave hands to get the light on again, so in the end you waste more time and water in the shower. One of the staff (an older guy) was very mean but the younger staff were friendly
Unless you're a frat type or sorority tween seeking frat guys, stay away. I had to leave after first night (of 7) and hostel has yet to refund the nights not used -- inspite of the fact that I booked another hotel through same booking site. Not for mature adults and definitely not families!
I stayed there last week, and for me this was a truly great experience. I guess the place was renovated a short while ago, the whole structure is very modern and bright, the bed was comfy and the mattress pretty new. Location was very convenient: nearby we had supermarkets, banks, bars, Spanish restaurants, but also the hostel was in the center of big attractions such as La Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell etc). Didn't even need to use metro, that was very close as well. The hostel organizes daily activities, which I think is very nice 'cause it makes super easy to meet other travellers and spend good time with them. Last but not least, the staff: they really, really friendly and helpful. I will definitely go back there when I'm back in Barcelona.
