Stayed here for 2 nights though we were barely in. Most hotels wanted us to book 2 room with out 2 children. However, the family room was great and just what we needed. There was nice touches that I didn't expect such as bottled water in the room and a hairdryer. It was clean, modern and functional and in avery... More

Hostal Centric is located in the heart of Barcelona in an excellent area. You can reach all the main attractions by public transport in 20-30 minutes as well as the beach in 20 minutes. Ramblas is about 10 minutes walk. The hotel (yes, hotel, it has nothing to do with hostels) is clean and well equipped, the staff is very... More

We were 3 friends travelling together and our room had 3 individual single bed, which was perfect. Location was good too (10-15 min walk from Las Ramblas) and front desk service was very good. Very clean. Nice bathroom. I recommend it.

We spent seven nights at Hostal Centric and found it to be very conveniently located near several good Metro lines, so that we were able to get all around the city. The weekday desk clerk was extremely personable, had very good English and recommendations that were reliable. The neighborhood is quiet and near a number of good breakfast sites and... More

Superb location in between 2 metro stops, Urgell and Sant Antoni - plus a few awesome bars close by makes this a perfect choice. Staff at the desk were very nice and nothing was any hassle. The room I booked for my wife and I was right on the money - basic but modern and clean with decent air-con. Highly... More

This hostal was more like a nice/comfortable hotel. The rooms were clean, sufficient in size and had a nice bed. The neighborhood was a little worn but it was safe and conveniently located within walking distance to Las Ramblas as well as to several metro and bus stops. There are numerous bakeries, cafés, bars and bodegas around the hostal. The... More

Hostel Centric is located very close to Urgell metro station, at walking distance from the city centre and with plenty of local Restos and pubs around in the Sant Antoni neighbourhood. My stay was very pleasant, the hostel was very clean and staff has been very friendly

Stayed here for 3 nights! Close to shops, cafes and metro! Clean rooms and bathroom. Enough room for both of us. Great shower and free wifi is great too. Friendly staff. Vending machine in reception area. Only negative is there's no tv channels in English which was fine as we were hardly in the room! Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Extraordinarily delicious Vegetables-Paella! Fantastic Tabla de Quesos Espanoles! Beautiful and comfortable Location, the stuff was friendly, which in our opinion is something special in Barcelona! 5 Star recommendation from us from Vienna/Austria.

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
