Hostal Grau is more than a hostel. It is a very cosy hotel in the middle of town. The location is perfect for visiting the city and despite the central position it is situated in a calm side street ensuring that one can get resting sleep. The design of the hostal and the room is very nice and I loved... More

The Hostal Grau exceeded our expectations. It is perfectly situated a minute off Las Ramblas and you are minutes from anywhere: places to eat, shopping or metro stations but it has its own type of bustle of local Barcelona rather than the busyness of tourists. The hotel itself was just wonderful, the rooms are delightful and serene and we spent... More

And friend and I stayed in his hostal for 6 nights and loved it. So clean, friendly and great wifi. Air con was amazing. The communal area with tea/coffee is a great asset too and would highly recommend this place to anyone coming to Barcelona. Very central to everything especially las ramblas and the market

Lovely, clean accommodation with very helpful staff. Great location with many interesting passageways right out the door. The rooms were large, airy and bright with updated fixtures in the bathroom, great showers, and air conditioning. A real oasis in the centre of busy Barcelona.

Great little hostal in Barcelona. Downtown close to everything and transportation. The staff was very helpful and nice. The room was also the room was fairly quiet and clean. They recycle and have a "green" atmosphere. We felt the security was excellent and felt very safe.

Hostal Grau provides clean & simple accommodation, with very friendly & helpful staff. Great location - walking distance to all of downtown Barcelona, but not on a main thoroughfare (which means you won't be kept up all night by the party crowd).

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.
