This hostel is walking distance from La Rambla, so a great place to be located for all the Barcelona sights. The staff were incredibly helpful, providing sightseeing ideas and tips on local transportation. If you arrive early or are leaving late, you can leave your luggage in a locker for just 2 Euros. Rooms are a little warn and there... More

This is our 8th visit to Hostal Abrevadero, so that speaks for itself. Manuel and his family have always made us very welcome and have been very helpful. The food in the restaurant is excellent, offering a good range of spanish Tapas and other dishes. The rooms are basic but adequate for a siteseeing visit. My only suggestion for improvement... More

I was traveling with 4 others and had a quint room in another building. Every time you leave the room, you must turn in your key and pick it up when you return. You must be "let" into your building each time you return, as you have a key to your room but not the door to the street. Elevator... More

Nothing fancy dancy but it got the job done. Just needed a place to shower and sleep before a cruise. Near restaurants and metro. Cheap and convenient. Got a quad room which was near the back and far from street noise.

I was genuinely shocked at how horrible this place was. My room was in a separate building for which I did not have a key so had to ask the staff to come round and let me in every time I came back. The room was badly lit, there were cigarette burns in the linen and the bathroom door looked... More

Important for Expedia users: on their site this was called simply "El Abrevadero" and listed and described as a 2-star hotel, rather than as a hostel. A horrible disappointment. (Perhaps 1 star for having toilets, and another for running water?) Otherwise, too much something out of the third world, as opposed to a cosmopolitan city. When we arrived, their computer... More
