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 Levis 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 dHebron' 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
