I had a brilliant 5 days in Barcelona travelling on my own for the first time. La Isla was an excellent choice and I would definitely stay there again. Gina the receptionist was exceptionally friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. I was lucky enough to be upgraded to a lovely double room which had everything I needed and a... More

Whilst badged as a hostel, La Isla is more akin to a guesthouse although without serving breakfast. It is also very well located, being directly outside Arc de Triomf and close to the stop of the same name on Line 1 of the Metro. Staff at check-in and during the stay were very friendly. Room was clean and, whilst we... More

Positives.... The hostal is in a great location approximately 15 minute walk from La Ramblas and 20 minute walk to the beach. Staff were friendly... More

This was my 3rd or 4th visit (I go every years to the Spanish F1 GP). Again the rooms were clean, the staff friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Excellent location for my visit.

La Isla Hostel was great; Fernando was really helpful and friendly, as were all of the staff. The apartment with a shared bathroom was very clean and had a welcoming feel.

I really enjoyed my stay at La Isla Hostel. The room was exactly like my expectations and the whole hostel was cleaned every morning. The booking includes towels, a small tube of shampoo, free usage of wifi and the fridge in the hall. The hostel also has an excellent location because the metro station "Arc de Triomfe" is just 3...

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
