Sant Jordi Gracia Hostel Barcelona is a modern, boutique hostel designed for the cosmopolitan hipster and fixed-gear bicycle aficionados. We provide amazing facilities, great organized activities, and a relaxed, international atmosphere. Located in the bohemian, Gracia quarter of the city we are in the center of the hippest neighborhood of Barcelona – where you will find beautiful plazas lined with cafes and full of interesting people, cool bars and restaurants of every type and for every taste, and numerous art studios, theaters and unique shops. In the tradition of everything that is cool in Barcelona, we are the place to discover the artistic sole of this Mediterranean metropolis.
To put it simply, every Sant Jordi Hostels employee wants to work here!!! The Gracia neighborhood is one of the coolest in Barcelona. It is not the city center and it is not the barrio Gotico but it is the most bohemian and artistically rich area of the city and does have numerous small plazas lined with cafes, shops and bars. The small streets and plazas of the Gracia have a distinct international, mediterranean feel and have become the refuge of artists and musicians from Cataluña and around the world.
The Gracia is also well connected – by metro – to the city center of Barcelona and most of the famous Barcleona tourist attractions. Within 15 minutes you can be almost anywhere in the city. Just down the street from the hostel are 2 metro stops, Fontana (L3 – Green) and Joanic (L4 – Yellow), which will bring you directly to the city center, the beach or the Port Olympic area.
The appeal of the Gracia is hard to explain. There is a unique mix of peoples and cultures. Sitting in a plaza on the patio of a small café, eating some tapas and drinking a sangria, you can watch the different people acting out their daily routines: elderly locals walking their dogs or just sitting on a bench people watching, young punkys with mohawks hanging out, chilling with friends, street musicians playing guitars and singing for café patrons, random teenagers laying in the sun on the ground in the middle of a plaza. It seems that in the Gracia everything is normal. I guess this makes sense when you consider that the majority of the practicing artists in Barcelona have their studios in and/or live in the Gracia neighborhood. Artists always seem to dance to their own beat and have a knack for finding the extraordinary in the mundane.
