... Sagrada Familia we walked down the streets towards some of Gaudi's other famous architectural designs. These were the Casa Batllo and the Casa Mila. We did not go inside either of these as the entrance fee was very expensive. We did not have any accommodation booked for the night as our hostel was completely booked out. We were on the waiting list for if there were any cancelations. Unfortunately there weren't any cancellations and we ended up sleeping in the common room of the ...

    Nice clean, modern well maintained. The location is just a few blocks from the Catalunya square so you're in the thick of everything in just a few minutes. Fantastic staff, very helpful.
