for its peaceful atmosphere



Despite being located right by the lively city centre streets, the Central Garden youth hostel is very quiet, and everything is arranged here to help you thoroughly enjoy Barcelona.



Dormitories at the Central Garden can accommodate four, five or six people. Those with four beds can be rented as a private room.

The decor in the rooms is simple but they are clean and bright and contain everything you need, including storage furniture and lockers for keeping your belongings safe.

The common areas

The kitchen, lounge and terrace are not very big but they are large enough for this cosy hostel. In the lounge, magazines and computers are freely available and a large table reigns over the terrace.

Breakfast is not included in the price but tea and coffee are freely available in the kitchen. If you don’t want to have breakfast in the hostel, the receptionist will be happy to recommend some local cafés.

Little extras at the Central Garden

The great thing about the Central Garden is the kindness of the accommodating and patient staff. Some members of the team have even been awarded prizes, which you can admire at reception. Many of them also speak English.

Every Friday a dinner is organised at which your attendance will cost you the princely sum of 3 to 5 euros, and where the chef is none other then the owner of the Central Garden, a former professional chef who previously had a restaurant in New York!

A free guided tour of the city is also given in English every morning.
