We stayed in a triple room for 2 nights and had a really nice time. The room was quite large with good wifi signal. The staff was also very helpful and friendly, and gave us a lot of great recommendations for things to do and places to eat around the city. The location is very convenient and easy access to...

Really nice service, friendly, helpful staff. Excellent AC - essential when outdoor temp. is 35+ Great location, easy to walk everywhere even with kids- close to zoo, aquarium, park and beach. Not so touristy. Basic rooms but the price makes it excellent value. Had a shared bathroom which was tiny but sufficient.

The place is old but clean and well mantained. We stayed in a family room with private bathroom. With air condition and free wifi. If your budget is limited, this is a good place to stay. The hotel people were very accomodating and helpful as well.

The only small thing that the shower place is very narrow. BUT the hostel is located in a perfect place with many nice restaurants and cafes. About 6 minute walking to the... More

Great location, close to most attractions to visit. The room is clean, bathroom big enough and the staff is at your service. A small problem arises when at the reception is no person who speaks English. Twice we visited this hostel and once there were even two persons who were speaking English, and at the second visit there was a... More

Alright - so for the location the room was cheap, BUT nonetheless one could expect a DRY room. The room was extremely damp (probably because the "bathroom" was just separated by sheetrock). Hence the room was damp and partly mouldy. The shower was mouldy as well, and there were small insects running around on the wall. Finally the house is... More

A great hostel at a good location. The rooms are extremely neat and cosy. Wi Fi connectivity was free and good.But the best part was the staff. They were really helpful and had a great deal of patience to clarify all our doubts, and suggest us the best possible ways to plan our day! I give this hostel a big... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
