Barcelona Central Garden Hostel Reviews

Upon entry, the staff of Barcelona Central Garden Hostel are very helpful. They will sit you down for a good fifteen minutes and talk you through all the main attractions of Barcelona to help you plan your trip. They are patient and nice, and this provides a valuable starting point for your stay. Breakfast is not provided, however there are many places where you can get cheap food (relative to Western Europe) such as the diner downstairs.

The Location

Central Garden is located a ten-minute walk away from the famous Las Ramblas, the busiest shopping street in Barcelona. Finding the hostel can be slightly tricky, especially if you are not using GPS. There is only a small sticker with the hostel's name on the door, so it is easy to walk past if you are searching for a large sign.

You may choose to take a leisurely stroll to the beach and Gothic Quarter, or use can use the well-connected metro system to see all the touristic sites. Central Garden is also located within walking distance to many bars and restaurants if you choose to experience the nightlife in Barcelona. The Sagrada Família is a 15 minutes walk away. For getting to the beach, it takes you around 15-20 minutes as well. The metro is the easiest way here,

Rooms and Bathrooms

The beds are not the most comfortable for sleeping. They squeak when you move, and you can sometimes feel the bed springs pushing through. However, if you have had a busy day exploring the sights of Barcelona, you should have no problem falling asleep. Cleanliness of the rooms is adequate without being superb, though this may depend on roommates.

There are multiple bathrooms available, and they are very clean and spacious. There are mops in case the floors are wet from showering. However, the showers do feel a little confining and the lighting for some showers could be better.

Common Spaces

The hostel has a very nice lounge and outdoor garden area, and these areas are quite social at night. You will find that most guests gather in these areas at night, so it can be busy and difficult to get a seat. The common areas give the hostel a very homey feel. There is a small kitchen which has all the basic necessities.

One of the highlights of the hostel are the events, which are held a few times a week. This will involve a staff member taking you out for tapas or to a flamenco show. The cost is not cheap, but it is a good chance to experience Barcelona culture and meet your fellow travelers.

Summary

Barcelona Central Garden is a cozy hostel with a homey atmosphere. Rooms are not the most comfortable, but the staff are amazing. Although it is not a party hostel at all, the events held by the staff give you a good chance to socialize and experience Barcelona culture.
