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".

I would recommend this hostel to everyone. The location is great, everything is close. The staff is very nice and friendly. The room is simply decorated, but it has everything you need for your stay, it is very clean and clean towels were waiting us every day. Great value for money.

I travelled with my sister and we spent 4 nights here. The Hostal is run by super friendly sisters and mum. It's VERY clean. Every day we were given clean towels, soaps and shampoo. Our bed was changed with fresh linen after the second night. The room we were given wasn’t one of the new ones as shown in the... More
