This place has it all: free wifi, roof top splash pool and terrace, cafeteria, private lounge/kitchen - all for only £23 pppn! The residents were all really respectable too, no disturbances. Would definitely... More

Upon arrival the air conditioning was broken which made our first few days miserable. It took 3 days and 2 reminders for it to be fixed and the staff weren't particularly helpful about it. The room itself is tiny and the bathroom wasn't particularly clean, especially after maintenance came to fix the air con and left a load of mess... More

Staying in Poblenou

Neighborhood Profile
Poblenou
The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that this area of town is the newly crowned technological park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well as a host of local and international high tech companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of activity in new high-rise residential buildings and two top-notch shopping centers catering to everyone's need. The ambiance of this area is calmer than the city center and the beautifully relaxing Bogatell Beach, popular with locals, is just a handful of blocks away.
