The five floors with no lift were hard work with heavy bags!! The stairwell was in a bad state of repair with loose tiles, flaky paint and a lack of light bulbs on each floor. Passed a 'lady of the night' just finishing a transaction on the the dimly lit stair well on my way back one night!! The main... More

It was a terrible experience, especially that the hostel is on the fifth floor and there was no elevator and there was only one bath room working in the flat. And above all it wasn't this cheap, for some extra euros you can get a room in a 3 stars hotel in the same Ramlas street.

Didn't know what to expect having had my mate do all the booking. I was absolutely amazed by the location, but that was the only good thing. No air con and a window that opened into a closed off courtyard made the room feel sticky and uncomfortable. It wasn't even that warm outside so I can only imagine how bad... More

I am writing this review from my room at the hostel because I just felt it couldn't wait. I get that they advertise this as a simple and unpretentious place, but there is a limit to that. If I'm paying €40/night for a double room for my boyfriend and I, I think some nice sheets are the least we could... More

I had a private room in the Ramblas Hostal. The room was cute and very nice and a towel was included which was amazing, as I dont usually travel with one. The only problem was finding the actual building. We wander around Las Ramblas for quite a while before stumbling upon the tiny sign marking the location of the hostel... More

I had been in December last year before at the hotel; Then I thought it was good. So went back this time, but this experience was slightly less than last time. Plus point; I was able to check in when I arrived and check out later than was prescribed. A little less this time were the showers and toilets. No... More

It is absolutely unacceptable that the hotel's location at The Rambla 133 is not, in any way, marked with the hotel's name. There is a tiny entrance with the name of a restaurant and another pension, but not Barcelona City Ramblas. THIS, you can only see when climbing up 5 flights of stairs (over 100 steps) - and even then,... More

Stayed here with two friends for Barcelona v Celtic in October 2012. Place isn't the easiest to find, right at the top fo Las Ramblas next to the Burger King. Brilliant location for such a low price. The place is very clean for such a inexpensive hostel. Would recommend.

Very comfortable stay. The metro station is just a stones throw away and is one of the main stations in Barcelona. Hence very easy to commute across the city. As the accommodation is right on the La Ramblas street, it is very enjoyable to walk around the area with no difficulty to find places to eat or lounge. The rooms... More

Clean room with a sink, liquid soap, wardrobe with hangers, fan, heater, hairdryer and a small amount of shelf space. There were two beds in our room with two pillows each and extra blankets in the wardrobe with space under the beds for suitcases. There was also a desk, chair and access to free wifi with good connection. Communal fridge... 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.
