Great location. But room infested with moths, no air contionning, noisy patio with rude tourists, and very poor sound proofing. Staff doesnt really seem to care. Price is quite cheap. Might be interesting if you're not planning to have a good sleep.

This hostel is clean and located in the heart of La Rambla. Many restaurants and souvenir stores nearby. Walking distance to a metro line, the Aerobus (airport bus) and Hop on Hop off bus stops at Placa Catalunya, Paseig de Gracia, and the coastline. The only negative feedback is the walls are thin. The guy above me had his music... More

Very nice staff, rooms are clean and the location is perfect if you are visiting Barcelona (literally one minute from the Rambla). However, the reason I only give two stars is due to the centralised air conditioning. I stayed at this hostal in August, but they turned the air conditioning off so during the day I couldn't have a siesta... More

As I understood, this hotel is dorms for exchange students of the university. This means there is a breakfast which is restricted for them (at least when I was there), washing machines (on the roof). It is a pro that although it is a small room, there are desks you can sit and work/e-mail. I stayed there one night and... More

This was a last minute booking with not much availability in central Barcelona and I was encourgaed by the location, good value and Booking.com photos... however, the internal room I was allocated looked nothing like on the photos and felt more like a cell with a brick wall outside and quite claustrophobic. There was privacy film on the lower half... More

We booked our stay here while in Barcelona through Booking.com. While it states on Booking.com that it is a hotel, it is in fact a hostel. The rooms are extremely cramped, dark, and hot. They do offer A/C...for 10 minutes. The process to get A/C turned on in the room deters you from ever calling downstairs for a request--call downstairs... More

This small University Hall is located just one minute away walking from the Liceu metro station, which is the heart of the La Rambla district: thus, it is walking distance from most attractions in the city centre and a short metro ride from the train station or the airport bus. My only complain were the street noises (which are logical... 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.
