Excellent location for the airport (A2 bus stops 50 yards away) and metro into the main downtown and beach locations. Clean and tidy with well-appointed kitchen. Only slight gripes were some noisy neighbours and not a substantial breakfast...but still good at the price.

I took my younger 13 year old brother to Barcelona for the weekend and chose this place prior to going purely because of its location near the 'Urgell' metro stop which was a 2 minute walk away. Not only was the location amazing, the facilities were very good quality including the comfy bed, fresh air access, Barcelona guide, free wifi,... More

We stayed in Barcelona for 3 nights and this wasn't our best stay at a guesthouse. We booked the penthouse apartment based on all the (mostly good) reviews from various websites, but nothing was as we imagined. The apartment is very small, rooms are not at all as glamurous as they look in the pictures but most of all we... More

It was really cool time and cool hostel. Close to the city center really close to the metro. Everything was perfect. Facilities you can use during acomodation in hostel are extra large and the closest bar is on the next side of street

We booked this for our family of five for a few days before our cruise. We had the penthouse apartment and a room with a shared bathroom. We were met by Oscar who showed us to our rooms and made sure we were satisfied. We had no issues with both rooms and enjoyed the central location. We thoroughly liked the... More

Stayed for 3 nights and I would say it was one of the best hostels we've ever stayed in. Location is ideal with the metro just two minutes away. We were welcomed by Jose Luis at reception who was very helpful, efficient and speaks good English. Room is spacious and clean. There is a beautiful lounge and a fully equipped,... More

The last night when we came back from our walk the guy who welcome us was waiting for us to tell us that our check out was the morning that passed. They have entered our room, packed all our things and gave the room to someone else. The room was basically booked twice! THIS WAS AWFUL!!! After some time we... More

I stayed here for the first stop on my European trip and got bed bugs all over my body. I should have known I was in for a poor experience when we arrived to the hostel and no one was present to check us in even though I confirmed (which took several attempts via email) our arrival time. Luckily one... More

The hostel was very convenient to many attractions because the Metro was only a block away. The room is clean and pretty roomy for 4 people. It was a full size bunk w/ 2 twin size bed. The only thing that my mom didn't like was the shared bathroom. I was fine with this because the bathroom was clean. The... More

Boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and neither of us can say one bad thing about the place! The staff is delightful and incredibly helpful. Very central location, with a 2 minute walk to the metro (which is incredibly user friendly) in an area that is not overrun with too many tourists. And is easy to get to... 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.
