I wonder how you would feel...Allow me to give you some background, so that you get the full picture. I am (in years at least) a "middle-aged" woman traveling to a foreign country for the first time...and traveling alone for the first time as well. Maybe I'm more stupid than brave...I have a certain spirit of adventure, but I am... More

Centric, Director de Recepción at Hostal Centric, responded to this review

Dear guest, I am sorry for all the inconvenience caused. Although you seem to be reluctant, I can not figure out any other reason than a language misunderstanding as we were already fully booked for the day you intended to extend your reservation for. Furthermore, extending a reservation implies a new prepayment and the printing of an updated welcome card... More

Hostal Centric is a nice little hostal in perfect position for exploring the city. You can go almost everywhere by foot. If You do not like to walk, there are 3 metro stations very close to the hotel. Station for aerobus from airport is also within few minutes walking, which was great for us. There are also grocery shops, bakeries,... More

What a find. Great value in a really useful location for getting to all the best places. The spotless room was all you need but not massive, of course. Room & shower (hot & powerful) were kept just as spotless with plenty of towels throughout our stay. Without exception, the pleasant guys on the desk were really friendly & helpful,... More

Hostal Centric was great! The guys on the front desk were really friendly and helpful. The room was a reasonable size for a city centre hotel and was very quiet. It had a proper window that opened and looked out the back of the hotel. There's no breakfast in the hotel but breakfast at Moritz round the corner was fab.... More

The hotel feels very new and modern. The location is excellent, very close from Plaza Catalunya, metro stations, bus stops, etc. There are restaurants and supermarkets in the neighborhood. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready but they kept our luggage in a safe room. The room was very comfortable, bathroom had a tub and very spacious. The only... More

We stayed here in january 2014 and enjoyed our accomodation in the city center. Hostal Centric has only 2* but seems much better. Recently renovated rooms with new furniture, convenient beds and pillows; a flat screen TV; an air conditioner which has also a winter function (so it was very warm in the room). There was even electronic safe free... More

We had only 4 days in Barcelona, so we decided to live in hostel, but in the centre. The Centric hostel has the perfect location, 10 min to Catalonia square. The room has its own bathroom, large anough, but the shower place is rather small, it's hard to turn over. The wifi is good, the guy in reception is good... More

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.
