Good price for great location. A room we lived at was small, but clean and cosy. Service was very friendly and helpful. Only at night is quite loud because of the city center, but earplugs helped me falling asleep. I could come back for 2-3 nights again.

I stayed in a private room which included a sink, closet, bed and desk. First time staying in a Hostel alone. Shared restrooms that were always clean as was my room. I felt safe!! The location is beyond great. A two minute walk (if that) from La Rambla. Easy location to catch a cab and there was a metro stop... More

The place is good, in center of La Rambla. However, the price is too high. With the same value of money you can get a better one if it is not in the city center. If you really want to stay in La Rambla I recommend you this place

I stayed at Hostal River for 2 nights in June 2015 with my friend while backpacking - and it was a great little place to stay! It is right by Liceu metro station and a minute walk to the hotel. You ring a buzzer to get in and the hotel is on the third floor where, if you ring a... More

Great location and very friendly staff! I would come back here sometime. A one minute walk to the Rambla and a little supermarket across the street. A two minute walk to la Boqueria where you can get everything fresh (fruit, sandwiches, smoothie, etc).

The hostel is in a very central location, which is great, and the room was clean - but we wouldn't stay again. We were woken up every night by noisy people in other rooms because the walls were so thin, including someone vomiting in the floor's only toilet (which I guess is to be expected in a hostel). There 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.
