Samuel Webster thinks…

"It has character, friendly staff, clean rooms, generous breakfast, great for budget stays for couples and groups, we were a (respectful) group and found it very quiet and comfortable."

Liked: Casa Gracia is amazing! Out of the all of the places i stayed in Europe, it was by far the best. The only one with air conditioning! The room was quite large and very nicely decorated. It's so clean! Perfectly located in a beautiful neighbourhood in Barcelona and the metro stop was just a few steps away. The staff was amazing and they had organized events almost every night for the guests to mingle and experience what the city has to offer ex: set up xbox kinect and made paellas for dinner; organised pub crawls; yoga at sunset on the terrace; etc. They had a large common room, dining room and terrace for the guests to use. There was always someone at the front desk (24 hours). The kitchen was available for use by the guests to keep things in the fridge or to cook dinner... it was like a home away from home!

Disliked: I don't have any complaints about Casa Gracia!

Liked: This place is perfect- a safe, clean, fun place to stay. all the rooms were well maintained and cared for, the staff friendly and helpful, the communal areas comfortable and spacious, and the terrace excellent for enjoying your meal. at night it was quiet, the surrounding area felt very safe (still be cautious about your belongings- but the hostel cannot help a massive problem of the whole city!!!) and the nights out arranged are very well run and a good way of meeting people in your hostel. It should be noted there is never any pressure to party or go out, the hostel is brilliant for whatever you want the stay to be. rooms are also air conditioned, the breakfast is simple but very filling. Just outstanding!

Disliked: I cannot find a fault at all.

Liked: The location was perfect, the rooms were bright and clean, the common area was warm and welcoming and the terrace was quaint. Most of the staff were very friendly and willing to help. The nightly arranged activities were amazing and a wonderful way to get to know new people. I had an unforgettable stay there. Highly recommended but must book early.

Disliked: Nothing other than the fact that I couldn't get wifi connection in the rooms.

Liked: This hostel was amazing! It was very clean and safe. The location was only a short walk or metro down to le rambla. It also had an amazing atmosphere. Great for meeting new people. They organise a dinner every thursday with all you can drink for only 8euros. It also had free internet and printing and really good wifi. Would definitely recommend this hostel, one of the best in europe.

Disliked: Only issue was that it was further away than most hostels to la rambla. But this really isnt an issue as its in a much safer area!

Liked: Myself and three friends had an absolutely amazing time at Casa Gracia. The staff are willing to help with anything, from providing maps and directions to researching cinemas and ticket prices for the main attractions in Barcelona. The hostel were also brilliant at organising nights out which were easy to sign up for and go along to, with deals to some of the main clubs in the city. The location is central but not excessively crowded, and the nearest metro station, Diagonal, is on a really useful line for getting to most places in the city with minimal effort. The decor is great too- more like a well designed boutique hotel than a hostel! I would recommend anyone coming to Barcelona on a budget to stay at Casa Gracia, undoubtedly my best hostel experience.

Disliked: Very very minor complaints- the shower in our bathroom was very prone to leaking, which caused some problems, but that was the only flaw in our room, and may have just been specific to our bathroom. Also, one of my friends found the traffic noise hard to sleep through, which might be problematic if you are a light sleeper- however, our room was right at the front of the building. Can't really think of many other negatives.

Liked: Booked a dorm but when we got there they gave us an upgrade to a private double room which obviously made our day! Staff was extremely nice and helpful the whole time, free use of luggage room even after booking out, the place is real close to a metro station, there is a nice terrace and a huge living room type area if you're looking to meet fellow travelers. Very much recommended.

Disliked: nothing.
