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.

We spent a weekend at Hostal Centric, and would strongly recommend it. Excellent central location, professional service, clean and comfortable room, and fast Internet connection on the plus side. The only point not quite as good was the size of the room which was relatively small. It is firmly on the list of possible hotels for our next Barcelona stay.

The hotel is very modern, centrally located and close to many of Barcelona's amenities. Lots of restaurant (and affordable ones) around, a convenience store right next to it. The staff is really nice and helpful, the rooms are rather small but very clean and comfortable. We were at the back of the hotel and it was very silent.

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.
