Central and Basic Solarium
If you are looking for a place very near Las Ramblas (just 100 meters) and close to the beach (15 minutes by foot) and if you do not mind walking up stairs but want a private room with shared bathrooms then we would love to have you at our hostel. Breakfast Off-site
The hostel is in the center of the city, we are surrounded by shops, restaurants and nightlife. We recommend to have a drink at the Ocaña bar located in Plaza Real. To eat the Grill Room restaurant or the Simpu Japanese restaurant, both are on Escudellers street. At about 15 minutes walk, we find the Gothic Quarter our favorite place in the city with its beautiful Cathedral of the Sea.
