The Hostal is generally a narrow building: tight stairs and tight elevator! We stayed in a double with private bathroom: the bedroom was small, tidy and very simply furnished. The room was daily cleaned and was supplied with towels. The staff was friendly and kind and the location was perfect, very close to the Universitat metro station. The wifi didn't... More

PLUS: Good location, close to coffee shops, restaurants and to the Subway. The closest station is Universitat. MINUS: The place looks scary, the hotel's condition is bad (remember the price)! That's why.. WiFi works only at the reception, very very small & old elevator (unbelievable), very small shower-corner... you can hear everything your neighbor says/does .. If you have bad... More

I didn't originally book at this hostal, I was transferred from another hostel (El-Puchi) as they couldn't keep my room due to delay in flight!! I was told that this is an upgrade as rooms have private shower (not bathroom), it turned out to be the only positive thing (if we can say), I was stuck with this one (thankfully... More

It is a great hostel for price\location. Very near to Barcelona city center, you can walk to many touristic attractions and to the port. The staff was very helpfull and kind. The radio in the room operated by a switch was wonderful.

Radio hostal has some of the most helpful staff ive come across even better than most 5 stars I have stayed at/worked in. If you're looking for a youth hostel with party's within the building etc, look elsewhere this is calm with an older clientele base. It gets very hot in summer as there is only a small fan, but...

Since in the previous hotel didn't had room for longer than 2 days, we went to this hotel, the hotel is situated near Universitat and Placa de Catalunya from which aeroBus drives you directly to the airport. We took a room with a private bathroom, and the elevator was tiny, but adequate. The area isn't nice, but the hostal was... 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.
