The new standard in Barcelona hostel, enjoy 24 hour common areas, quiet and comfortable rooms, fun activities, simply the best of everything European hostels are famous for.

As one of the hostels in the Sant Jordi Hostels Chain, we were awarded by hostelworld customers 2nd BEST HOSTEL CHAIN WORLDWIDE 2010. Recently remodeled, Our Sagrada Familia Hostel has set the standard for Barcelona hostels. The first Barcelona hostel designed around the Barcelona skateboard and urban arts and culture scene, our Sagrada Familia hostel is taking what backpackers expect from a hostel to the next level. Come find out what makes Barcelona one of the most artistically vibrant and alternative oriented cities in Europe today.

Our large, 24 hours common areas have 8 computers with free internet and wifi, a kitchen, a large chill-out area, a big screen T.V. with a huge selection of movies and tons of comfortable corners to relax alone or meet up with friends. We are all about good times and sociable atmosphere. In our hostel the best thing to do is relax, be yourself and enjoy the international environment. Our common area is on the ground floor, away from where people sleep and is open 24 hours. This means you always have a choice between being social and a good night's rest. We also have a large outdoor private terrace, open during the day and accessible by all guests. It is perfect for laying-out, barbeques, or reading a book.

We are located in a popular local area, away from the craziness of the city center and just a short walk from the best site in Barcelona, Antoni Gaudi's famous Sagrada Familia Cathedral. We are also extremely well connected to all the main tourist attractions of Barcelona. With 2 metro lines, the L2 (Purple) and L5 (Blue), a few blocks from the hostel, you can be anywhere in Barcelona (by metro) in under 15 minutes. Also, with 3 night-bus lines that stop within 3 blocks of the hostel you don't have to worry about how to get home at night, no matter what the hour.

For the party lovers, several nights a week we organize huge group parties where we take all of the guests out on the town to experience the world famous bar and club scene of Barcelona. Our guests come from all over the world and all want the same thing: to have a good time, meet new people and explore an amazing city. We are famous for our parties and this is the best way to experience the renowned night-life of Barcelona and get to know some of the other guests in the hostel. We are professionals and this is our job, so come along and enjoy the fun!

We have 8, 10, and 12 bed mixed dorms with comfortable well built bunk-beds (linens included). All bedrooms are spacious and include private lockers, external windows and air conditioning. The hostel has numerous individual, private showers and separate toilet facilities always with hot water. The communal kitchen is in the downstairs common area and includes 2 large refrigerators, 1 oven, 3 separate stove tops, 3 microwaves, and all the untensils and dishware necessary for cooking most meals.

Our young and friendly staff speaks English and Spanish and will provide you with maps and all the information you will need or want - sightseeing, transportation, restaurants, nightlife and more. As we are travelers like you, we know what you want out of a hostel and will do all we can to make you feel comfortable and make your stay in Barcelona unforgettable.

Directions to Sant Jordi Sagrada Familia
Our Address: Carrer Freser, 5

We have two different metro stops within five minutes' walk of the hostel: the L5 (blue) stop Sant Pau/Dos de Maig and the L2 (purple) stop Encants. Which stop is the best for you will depend on where you are coming from. Always be sure to exit the metro station using the exact exit given in the directions below. Exiting from the wrong exit will put you on a different street and will make it much more difficult to find the hostel.

Coming from El Prat Airport (BCN Airport):
Take the Aerobus from the airport to Plaza Catalunya. When you get off the bus in Plaza Catalunya you will be in front of the Corte Ingles building (a very large department store, the size of the entire city block).
Facing the El Corte Ingles building, with your back to the street, go to your left. You will be going up the street Passeig de Gracia.
Continue walking up, on the right-hand side of Passeig de Gracia, for 2 city blocks until you come to Gran via de les Corts Catalanes (a very large street with a Zara on one corner and a Levi�s shop on the other).
Just in front of the Zara you will find an entrance to the metro. Enter the metro station and take the L2 (purple) in direction �Badalona Pompeu Fabra� until the stop �Encants�.
When exiting the metro station at the �Encants� stop, after passing through the metro security gates, take the exit to the left (just next to the magazine and newspaper kiosk).
When you come to the top of the stairs you will be on the corner of Carrer del Dos de Maig and Carrer de Valencia, facing up the street Carrer del Dos de Maig.
With the �La Caixa� bank on your right, continue up Dos de Maig for 3 blocks until you come to Carrer del Rosello. You will see a fruit shop with an orange sign on your right.
Cross to the other side of the street, where there is a �La Caixa� bank and a kiosk on the corner that says �La Vanguardia� and go to your right. The hostel reception entrance is less than 15 meters from the corner, directly across the street from the �Consum� market and �Bar 504�. It is a pretty large entrance and should be hard to miss.
Be Aware: Because the street Carrer del Rosello forks here, on the side of the street with the fruit shop the street name is Carrer del Rosello and on the side of the street with the �La Caixa� the street is named Carrer Freser. In between the 2 streets, causing them to separate is a triangle shaped plaza (park and playground area).
We're not far from the corner of Carrer Rosello and Dos de Maig, but on the Carrer Freser side of the street. Just look for number 5 and you will see a Sant Jordi sign with the Sant Jordi Dragon on it.

Coming from Sants Estacio Train Station:
Inside of the train station you will need to find the entrance to the metro. It is at the opposite end of the train station from the McDonalds.
Take the metro line 5 (blue) in the direction of 'Vall d�Hebron' to the stop 'Sant Pau/Dos de Maig'.
When you exit the train at the �Sant Pau/Dos de Maig� stop you will need to follow the signs that say sortida (exit) Dos de Maig. Be sure that you exit on the street Carrer del Dos de Maig. If you take the wrong exit you will be one city block in the wrong direction.
As you exit the metro station, coming to the top of the stairs, you will see an ice cream and candy shop to your right and a hospital on the other side of the street (*note, if you take the elevator you will come out on the opposite side of the intersection). Cross to the side of the street with the hospital and continue down Carrer del Dos de Maig, with the hospital on your right hand side.
Walk down Carrer del Dos de Maig for 2 blocks until you come to the street Carrer del Rosello (*note, if you are walking on the left side of Carrer del Dos de Maig the street that you come to after 2 blocks is named Carrer del Freser. This is because, just after crossing Carrer del Dos de Maig, the street Carrer del Rosello forks into 2 streets. One continues as Carrer del Rosellos and the other is named Carrer del Freser).
At the intersection of Carrer del Dos de Maig and Carrer del Rosello you will see on one corner a �La Caixa� bank and a kiosk that says �La Vanguardia� on it, on the opposite side of the street a fruit shop with an orange sign and diagonal across the intersection from the �La Caixa�, a bakery named �Paul�. You need to turn left at the �La Caixa�.
The hostel reception entrance is less than 15 meters from the corner, just directly across the street from the �Consum� market and �Bar 504�. It is a pretty large entrance and should be hard to miss.
Be Aware: Because the street Carrer del Rosello forks here, on the side of the street with the fruit shop the street name is Carrer del Rosello and on the side of the street with the �La Caixa� the street is named Carrer Freser. In between the 2 streets, causing them to separate is a triangle shaped plaza (park and playground area).
We are not far from the corner of Carrer Rosello and Dos de Maig, but on the Carrer Freser side of the street. Just look for number 5 and you will see a Sant Jordi sign with the Sant Jordi Dragon on it.

Coming from Girona Airport and the Nord Bus Station:
Take the Barcelona Bus from the airport to Barcelona Nord Bus Station (final destination).
Once at the Nord bus station you can either take a taxi to the hostel (not too expensive because it's not so far from the hostel) or go with the metro. The metro stop is in the small park just next to the bus station and is named 'Arc de Triomf'.
The metro line at the 'Arc de Triomf' stop is the line 1 (red). Take the train that goes in the direction 'Fondo' until the stop named 'Clot'.
When you exit the train at the �Clot� stop you will have to transfer to the metro line 2 (Purple).
With the metro line 2 (Purple) you need to take the train in direction �Parallel� until the stop 'Encants'.
When exiting the metro station at the �Encants� stop, after passing through the metro security gates, take the exit to the left (just next to the magazine and newspaper kiosk).
When you come to the top of the stairs you will be on the corner of Carrer del Dos de Maig and Carrer de Valencia, facing up the street Carrer del Dos de Maig.
With the �La Caixa� bank on your right, continue up Dos de Maig for 3 blocks until you come to Carrer del Rosello. You will see a fruit shop with an orange sign on your right.
Cross to the other side of the street, where there is a �La Caixa� bank and a kiosk on the corner that says �La Vanguardia� and go to your right. The hostel reception entrance is less than 15 meters from the corner, directly across the street from the �Consum� market and �Bar 504�. It is a pretty large entrance and should be hard to miss.
Be Aware: Because the street Carrer del Rosello forks here, on the side of the street with the fruit shop the street name is Carrer del Rosello and on the side of the street with the �La Caixa� the street is named Carrer Freser. In between the 2 streets, causing them to separate is a triangle shaped plaza (park and playground area).
We're not far from the corner of Carrer Rosello and Dos de Maig, but on the Carrer Freser side of the street. Just look for number 5 and you will see a Sant Jordi sign with the Sant Jordi Dragon on it.
