Our stay at this place was perfect. It was very clean, very secure and the staff were lovely. Came back every day to beds made and clean towels. I am someone not used to staying in hostels and the thought of sharing a bathroom with so many other people was a bit terrifying. The worry was clearly not needed though... More

My wife & I stayed at this hostal at the end of June. As mentioned before, the reception is on the third floor and there are no lifts, something to be considered if you have difficulty climbing stairs. The location is excellent, just 200 yds from the Liceu station. We were in room 303, an en-suite room. As you would... More

River hostal was better than I imagined after having stayed in many hostels. Very clean, fresh towels everyday, shared bathroom immaculate. Had a really good stay here, staff are very helpful and speak some English. The hostels location is ideal and very easy to find.

Very clean, hosts are very very nice and welcoming. They gave us a map of the metro and the city and were always here to answer our questions. It is very far from being luxurious. The soundproofing was a bit bad but it didn't bother us. It is a good option for students. It is clean, the location was GREAT!... More

Very clean rooms, nice people. Very close to the Ramblas. Sometimes hot water is unpredictable, and one of the shared showers doesn't have enought pressure to wash long hair. Wifi sometimes doesn't work when the hotel is full, or when it's a "rush hour".
