Casa Gracia Barcelona in Review
Let’s make our way to the Barcelonan boulevard slap bang in the centre of the city. This is where you’ll find a stylish, clean boutique hostel with your name on it. Casa Gracia Barcelona is a 5 Star Hostel in the Catalonia capital because…
1. Supporting Local Events
As usual, we take sustainability very seriously when it comes to 5 star hostels.
At Casa Gracia Barcelona, their focus is primarily on providing an environment that resembles that local and homely feeling.
It’s no wonder then that they chose Gracia as a base. This just so happens to be distinctly Barcelonan and picturesque – exactly what you expect when you think of ’typical Spain’.
The staff here are overflowing with local tips and tricks, information that will surely support a local experience.
And as for the many many activities and events on the agenda every day of the week?
They just so happen to be supporting local artists/guides that are keen to spread their passion and knowledge far and wide.
From ‘forbidden’ tours of Barcelona to ‘not another tapa tour,’ you’ll be immersed in local culture, history and of course: FOOD!
Let’s us mention too the eco-friendly side of things.
Have a good look around and you’ll surely notice the many vintage items filling the spaces. Yet, Casa Gracia’s still offers a modern blend when it comes to design.
The vintage industrial slash modern design works well because of the up-cycled furniture. It adds such character!
Up-cycled or recycled; it all makes a difference and it’s obvious that Casa Gracia has done their bit.
2. Ever-Changing Design
Remember when we warned you that you might get lost? Instead of scaring you off, we want to get your excited for big spaces and ever-changing design.
It’s a big place, there’s no denying it.
Solo travellers will love it because of the social possibilities, and couples can enjoy couple time in their very own suite.
Ok so we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s lay it out on the table by starting with the impressive room choices:
- 6-bed mixed dorm
- Single/double/triple/quad/quintuple rooms
- Superior double room
- Family room (6 people)
- Deluxe suite
- One bedroom apartment (+ deluxe option)
The rooms are where you’ll find modern decor with a touch of old-style thanks to the HUGE original windows and hanging ceiling lights.
Move around the building and discover unique spaces for different moods and desires.
It’s known collectively as The Playground, and we think it’s a great way to sum up this hostel.
From quiet boutique spaces to nap, to a lively bar atmosphere – there really is a choice for that ever-changing traveller mood.
Check out and enjoy:
- De Tranquis – lounge area
- No Mas Te – temple of silence, light exercise & deep thinking
- Biblioteca – large windows, armchairs & books
- Principal – eat, plan, work
- Petit Bis – an old bank vault, a new wine cellar
- Terrassa – outdoor terrace
- La Paisana – gastrobar w/ great food & drinks
- Bis – awesome underground bar
That’s a lot to take in, so feel free to take a minute or two on the terrace to digest.
3. Mansion made Hostel
We’re pretty sure it’s not every day you get to say you’ve slept in a mansion at an affordable price.
This unique opportunity in Spain lies purely with Casa Gracia Barcelona!
Not only was this once a mansion, but it is also home to an old bank vault.
Though a small space, Petit Bis has been cleverly re-designed as a wine cellar, holding many bottles at your disposal.
“An old bank vault, a new wine cellar, what could go wrong?”
In fact, this space is uniquely available for special reserves and events for a group of friends. It cosily seats 6 people at one time, so we think this is a super fun option for a unique experience with friends.
But wait, there’s more!
Over at Mig Bis, is the larger section of an old bank vault.
This is once again a place worth reserving for small dinner experiences, for a maximum of 8 people. Most of the original parts have been left in tact, creating a seriously unique place to dine.
Note: bribery and corruption matters are no longer available.
4. Every-day Social Scene
Never fear, fun and events are always here at Casa Gracia Barcelona!
Like we already mentioned, there is something on the agenda every day of the week at this 5 star hostel.
As a freebie to settle you in, you can join a morning yoga class to kick start your day.
And then it’s up to you just how social you feel like being during your stay.
It’s probably no surprise that the great underground bar, Bis, is the place to be for cool DJs and live music.
Other than that, you can go crazy with all kinds of entertainment. From cinema, exhibitions, theatre, wellness and gastronomy, it’s utterly impossible to be bored.
A strong community vibe fills the place. Probably because of the nightly dinners and pub crawls that bring everyone together. Lovely!
Then of course there are the ridiculous amount of hostel spaces to enjoy, too.
No matter if you hang by yourself or with your partner, there’s room for socialising if you allow it. All it takes is a simple hola!
In the fully fitted kitchen you’ll find free tea and coffee available 24hrs a day.
5. Always at hand – the staff
The staff put in so much hard work and love that it pays off with continuous high reviews and mentions.
I mean wow, they really do so much for their beloved travellers.
Daily house keeping, organised activities, fresh linen & towels – they go above and beyond to make you welcome and comfortable.
It’s important for them for you to have a good time!
Words like “amazing”, “friendly” and “warm” are common words to describe the team.
And the cherry on top? Reception is open 24 hours a day so someone will always be around to help!
