Finding three Rambla Catalunya Hostels right in the heart of the Eixample on one of Barcelona's most select avenues is absolutely amazing.
I've organised this selection of hostels starting close to Plaça Catalunya and Barcelona City Centre
and working up the hill towards the Gràcia neighbourhood.
The truth is, though, any location on tree-lined Rambla Catalunya is almost bound to be marvellous.
Low numbers mean you're close to Plaça Catalunya, The Ramblas and the Barri Gòtic.
Mid-range numbers are the area around La Manzana de la Discordia, La Pedrera and the magnificent Modernista architecture that this implies.
The higher numbers denote the fact that you're very close to the authentic old neighbourhood of Gràcia itself with its honky-tonk bars and magnicent restaurants.
Whichever Rambla Catalunya hostels you choose, you're always close to Barcelona's most important sights and a short walk from either Catalunya, Passeig de Gràcia or Diagonal Metro Stations.

Lullaby Hostel Rambla Cataluña's fantastic location on the top left-hand corner of Plaça Catalunya combined with an amazingly low price - a little over €10 out of season - makes it a fantastic choice for groups or individuals.
The dormitories vary in size from 4 to 10 beds but all are air-conditioned and guests have access to 5 shared bathrooms, each with a shower.
The Lullaby offers 24-hour reception, a free Wi-Fi zone and a free breakfast.
You also can use the shared kitchen, which is open until 01:00 and is equipped with a fridge, microwave and coffee maker.
There is also a TV lounge with board games and sofas is open until 02:00 and a very pleasant terrace.

Set on the nicest section of Rambla de Catalunya, Rambla Catalunya Hostel offers modern rooms, free Wi-Fi and a free daily breakfast at very low prices.
Rambla Catalunya Hostel occipies a typical Eixample building with high ceilings and large windows and you can choose from functional shared dorms and private rooms, some with en suite bathrooms.

The multilingual staff can provide maps and information about Barcelona.

Now in the top section of Rambla de Catalunya on the corner of Carrer Provença, Barna Hostal is only 200 metres from Gaudi’s famous La Pedrera and a short walk from Diagonal Metro Station.
Barna Hostal guest house offers a 24-hour reception, rooms with private balconies and free Wi-Fi.
Rooms at the Barna Hostal have typical Eixample tiled floors and high ceilings and all have heating and a TV, and some rooms have a private bathroom.
Hostal Barna looks quite basic to me but you can't expect more given the price and the location.
