"Nice staff, clean rooms. Fun."

This was my first time staying in a Hostel. Its located just north of the city where all the action is. Very helpful and friendly staff. We had some fun together and i enjoyed that. It was nice to meet new people while being alone on vacation. The room i had was on the street and it was very noisy. I didn't mind the others in the room walking in very early in the morning from partying as i did it myself. The kitchen could have been cleaner but wasn't a big deal if you're eating out like i did. Overall i enjoyed my stay but Ive decided that a hostel stay just isn't for me in the future. I would recommend Gracia City Hostel.
"Amazing hostel and excellent wifi"
09/01/14 Jon S San Diego, California
I stayed with my friends for a weekend vacation. The wifi is free and the speed is very fast, and worked for us every day that we were in the hostel. Furthermore, this hostel unlike other has its own kitchen and can cook yourself and not have to go to restaurants, although the hostel gives you a voucher to go eat at a restaurant, completely free! The rooms were clean, tidy and roommates were quiet. So glad to stay in this hostel, we are looking forward to returning to Barcelona! :)

Nice clean friendly hostel. Good location, walking distance to most places and metro is close. Stayed in 12 dorm, great value, not noisey and enough room for me. The staff are really helpful, Ryan told us about all the good spots in the local neighbourhood.

I think this hostel is one of the best there is in Europe. The staff is very friendly! The room, simple, clean and silent: that is what I wanted. An experience that I will repeat soon. It's ideally placed for sightseeing, a few minutes from the metro and bus station.
"A little expensive for the quality"

Great location Firendly staff (a little lackadaisical at times) Acceptable level of cleanliness Facilities were just adequate Not the best value for money. I've stayed in my fair share of hostels over the years and , from my experience, I would rate Gracia city hostel as just OK. There was nothing terrible about any part of my stay here, but there was nothing great either. I suppose my average rating of this place is based on the fact that they are charging premium rates for what is, at best, a second rate hostel (in terms of facilities, services, decor, cleanliness etc). Also, what probably creates a little bias for me is that, while I had booked the room months in advance, and been told that they would charge my card at some point between the time of booking and my time of stay, it turned out that they never charged my card in the months prior to my stay as they told me they would, but instead waited until I arrived to request payment, which left me a little out of pocket for my holiday. It's not wrong that they should operate like this, but I would say that communication about how the payment would be settled was communicated poorly. They told me that this is something they have to explain to a lot of their guests. If they told their guests about this before hand, I don't think people would mind.
"Great place to stay"

Most amazing place to stay in Barcelona. Perfectly located , best hostel staff, veryy friendly & extremely helpful. Sagrada familia is walking distance, la rambles is right down the street & so Is the gothic quarter. The must do's are the guided walking tours & the cycle tour of te city & also the Gouda tour..
"Time of my life!!"

This hostel was amazing! The staff were so helpful with everything and so much fun too, I really miss them all!!! They showed us the best place to eat and even brought us along to street parties which was incredible! I stayed in room of 12 which was the best because you met way more of the people travelling around Barcelona!! Even if you didn't the TV room was another great place to socialise with great facilities! The security in the hostel was excellent along with pretty much everything else!! I would highly recommend this place and I hope to visit them again!
"Worth the money, great hostel"
I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights in July. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean. Good location, although if your looking for clubs and bars the closest is around a 30 minute walk so I would suggest a taxi which was no more than around €8. The hostel is a 2 minute walk from supermarkets and shops which is really handy. I would stay here again.
"My holidaays!! In BCN"

I traveled alone, and i was in the girls room and the girls in my room were very nice, as the hostel staff (Luis, Natalia,, Frank and other people staff ...). The atmosphere is wonderful. In brief: security of hostel, breakfast, cleanliness, schedule flexibility to checkin and checkout, is perfect. I would definitely go back.
"Best place to stay in Barcelona"

We were in Barcelona for 3 nights last week and I have to say, we had the most amazinnggg stay at Garcia City Hostel.. Firstly it is located right in the heart of the city,secondly metro is 30 seconds walking distance & last but not the least - the hospitality & the cleanliness.. both are impeccable.. the bunk beds and rooms are spectacular clean.. the common room is sooo beautiful with light music playing.. the washrooms are immaculate again with perfect shower rooms & loo.. very very well maintained. But the most important thing about this hostel are the people who are running it-luis,petra,fran,duniya & max - they were soo warm and friendly & answered all our queries, even helped book tickets & guided us on what to do where in barcelona.. thanks to them our trip was a dream come true. Guys I will definitely come back again & next time with more people ! Cheers !
