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

First of all i think for what you are paying and for the location it is a good deal, but there is a big problem, the amount of noise during the night you will have because the Pension is located near a main street and the amount of bars nearby. Also this is just a place to sleep, there is... More

This hostel exceeded our expectations. Staff were very friendly, the rooms were immaculate & the location couldn't have been better. The only down side was sharing the shower with other travellers, the door has not been fitted with a proper lock so is easy to open from the other side, unfortunately for us we had to share the bathroom with...

Location is very good, on the border of Barri Gothic, El Born, and Barcelonetta, so you have easy walking access to all those parts. Rooms are big considering Barcelona but closer to basic, with big private bathroom, A/C and TV (though we didn't use them). Our room had a balcony facing to Estacio de Franca and wide busy street. This... More

This Hostel was very easy to find and walking from Passeig d. Gracia train station was really nice down lots of little lanes. The location is superb, only a 5 minute walk to Barceloneta metro station which is also next to Port Vell and close from there to Las Ramblas etc. As I mentioned earlier, there are lots of lovely...

I booked well in advance for 3 people, when I needed to change my booking to 2,but there was no twin room left, they still lowered the price for me. The desk staff were pleasant and very helpful even despite limited English (google translate helps!). I stayed 4 nights in a private room with a shared bathroom, but there's only... More

Definitely a great location, right in front of estacio' de fraca in La Ribera neighborhood is the place to be! I absolutely love it there because of the great food, bars, shops, and atmosphere. The rooms are small and the beds were also quite small which might be a problem for taller people. The spaces were clean and the people... More

I stayed on a single room with private bathroom. The room was small but clean, as well as the bathroom, which were both cleaned everyday and towels changed. The owner Aida was very friendly and willing to help with anything needed. She made me feel very comfortable. It is conveniently located right across the street from the "Estacio França" train...

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.
