You will find Soul Backpackers on the first floor of a beautiful old building. It is located on Diputacio, a long, easy to find street in the Eixample area. The metrostation is just around the corner and a larger supermarket also. 24h-shops are within 2 minutes walking distance.
It's sort off right in the middle off everything you want to see. Walt to the old city takes 5 min.
To the Las Ramblas, Plaa Catalunya, Arc de Triomph, Bus station north, Sagrada Famlia and Casa Batll all takes 10-15 min walks (in different directions).
The Barcelona Zoo or le Cathedral: about 30 min walk. And last but not least, the beach and /or harbour will take about 45 min walking.
Off course metro's will take you everywhere fast but what a waste that would be to look around in this fantastic city!
Rooms and Bathrooms
There is a double room, and there are two 4-bed mixed dorms, a 6-bed mixed dorm and a 10-bed mixed dorm. Rooms aren't big but certainly specious enough. High ceilings and tiled floors give them a nice ambiance. The bunkbeds have good matresses and clean linnen. For each bed you'll find a big locker, but you have to bring your own padlock. Rooms are cleaned every day.
There are two toilets and three showers, they are a bit old, but cleaned twice per day. The sinks are very small. Also 2 off the showers are really narrow. Worth to wait for the one bigger shower. Also the showers are closed from midnight till 07.00 in the morning.
The kitchen is big enough and has everything you need. There is one stove so when it's crowded you might have to wait. There is a large common area with a large table where there is room for everybody to eat. Also there is is another with sofa's to chill. There is a large outside terrace. Here you can all enjoy dinner together or go for a cigarette.
Location is absolutely perfect, the building is nice and the staff is friendly.
There is a 24 hour reception so there is always somebody available when needed.
THe hostel is especially nice because off the size: it's not to crowded and still there are plenty off people to meet. They try to keep hours from midnight till 07.00 silent so that you can catch a good night off sleep. It's absolutely good value for money.
