I really loved Casa Gracia even though I do not normally stay at hostel type accommodations. The locations was superb especially in late August with the Gracia festival going on right outside. The common spaces were well taken care of and the common kitchen very practical to store snacks and drinks.
There is no television or radio in the private singe rooms and it's not really needed but if there is ever an upgrade for these this may be something to consider. Also more than one washer dryer would be convenient for the amount of people that need it would be useful especially for those with longer stays.
Gorgeous spaces to lounge over, De Tranquis was by far my favourite (I spent several afternoons there while waiting the heat to pass, no regrets whatsoever). Decoration is great all over, chic but welcoming and modern but homey. Beds were comfy, great idea on step ladders and stair-lockers. The night cleaning lady was an angel, I regret not asking her name. Breakfast was ok, but I'd hoped the bread and baked goods offered would be a little more "traditional" or "fresh". It'd make the €8 more worth it.
Music is way too loud in social spaces (talking without yelling is socially acceptable). Staff pretends to care and be cheerful but you ask them something and expect to be ignored. In occasions, they were also slightly or inadvertently rude. Example: asked to lower the volume at "De Tranquis", twice, and got ignored after a dismissive "oh sure, let me check on that". Asking a table for dinner and been told to wait for one to free up (which I did, for over 5-10 minutes) when there were three perfectly available at my back, I gave up and left (there are plenty of places at Gracia). It's nice to have daily cleaning in a hostel and find a room almost re-setted at the end of the day, but if you're gonna provide a service, at least make it worth it; I staid for a week and I saw stuff left on the floor unmoved for days, it was funny to see how long it'd be before they'd cleaned it. It smells of smoke and cigar all over if you come down at night and linger at the social spaces. Social kitchen and library closed at night? It looked like it and I was disappointed. And if that was not the case, then their house rules were very unclear. For example, a notice sign would say "the kitchen will be back tomorrow at 12" then I went there "oh no, it's not open on Sundays, just the bar". I wanted to linger downstairs when late so not to wake roommates and grabbed a seat at the bar area, I was told not there but at "De Tranquis", 2-3 nights later I did the same and, after hours sitting there with my computer, the security guard approached me out of the blue asking if he could help me with anything, startled I obviously didn't know what to say, he replied that I couldn't be there, I asked why since I was told otherwise and he asked "by whom and when" and stormed off speaking over the radio as if I were committing a crime sitting on a sofa watching a show on my own.
In our bathroom the shower door was missing and we a had two small mattresses attached in stead of one, which make sleeping with my partner very uncomfortable.
It had everything needed for my stay! The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was really great and super clean.
The rooms were small but if you’re going to Barcelona to explore you won’t be in there much aside from waking up and going to bed.
Room very small Breakfast starting too late!
