But it had a pretty good fan so it was fine. the recepnionists veried from very nice and helpfull to minding too much their own... More

The bathrooms were very dirty. The showers have no doors and are positioned in front of the bathroom door, what allows anyone who passes to see inside the bathroom. My room was very hot and next to the elevator, so there was always a very high noise through the room walls. The lights in the beds are so strong that... More

The location is the best: 2 minutes walk to the shopping avenue (La Rambla) and the Placa de Catalunya, 2 minutes walk to the Metro station. The premise is a 6-storey old building with about 200 dorm beds. The common area is rather small: reception, loung-internt corner and small dining room in the ground floor. The dorm room is small...

I stayed here with 4 friends on a trip interrailing around Europe. The walk from the aerobus stop at Plaça de Catalunya was quite long, but the hostel itself is located really very close to the metro stop Liceu which is useful for visiting sites like Camp Neu and La Sagrada Família. The rooms themselves were spartan, but they were... More

Stayed there for 4 days while visiting barcelona and i can tell you this place is not the best. Our room was for 8 and had no window, no ac at all and with a hot and humid night, you wake up all soaked. The facilities were not clean at all. The only good thing about it is that you... More

Wow. This place is absolutely phenomenal if you love cats, as do I. The owners are so kind and allow you to walk one of their many cats with their given cat harnesses. It sounds a little strange at first, but it's so fun. The cats are well trained, and sizes range from kitten to small dog. While you sleep,... 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.
