University residence (hostel in the summer), located in the centre of Barcelona, with a welcoming family atmosphere.


Residencia Universitaria Augusta is a student residence during the academic year (September to June). During the summer months the residence is transformed into a hostel without losing any of its charm.

A friendly atmosphere is what characterises the residence. The property is located in the heart of Barcelona, just minutes walk from Passeig de Gracia and within easy access to Plaza Catalunya and the famous and popular Ramblas.

The residence has rooms with TV, fridge, Internet access, heating and shared bathrooms. Guests may choose between single, double (double bed or twin beds) and triple. Bed linen and towels are included for all room types. Bathrooms are shared. One point in favor of this property is that there is no curfew, meaning that visitors can come and go as they please, which provides much more freedom when visiting the city.

Lovely welcome from the manager of the accommodation, Daniella. The room was large and it was great to have wifi, a TV and a fridge in the room. The showers and toilets were fine, and it was an added advantage to have breakfast provided. Another great facility was the water machine, which provided ice cold or boiling water at all times of the day, and if you wanted to heat food up there were microwaves in the dining area. Great location too - a quiet area, but only two minutes from Gracia metro station, and plenty of nice bars, cafes and shops in the area. I'd recommend this place to anyone who likes a bargain and isn't looking for luxury accommodation or a party place.
