Nice staff, very helpful and with good sence of humor. Hostel is clean, facilities are in good condition. Lockers have perfect size so I could put my two bags there easy. Wifi the best works in reception and in kitchen/livingroom area, in rooms it's a little bit slow but it's probably because of distance frim the router.

We enjoyed having two balconies in our room and the hostel is cheap and very central. The air conditioning in our room didn't work and our room got broken into from a local Spanish man. The rules for the hostel clearly state that you cannot enter without the specific card that opens the door. However this rule is NEVER in...

Great location, just down the road from La Ramblas, ok breakfast, but the lift was really noisy, kept waking me up. The walking tour was really good and enjoyable. There are lockers in the rooms for each person.

I have used a lot of hostels over the years and I think I've come accustomed to what most offer. Be Sound is no different and any of you who use hostels will find all the usual facilities. Staff were not the best I've come across, one man in particular had a bit of an attitude to him. Location is...

Beds were comfy, but walls were paper thin. Difficult to meet people and the kitchen didn't open until 11 so you couldn't really have breakfast. There was no breakfast provided. Staff was nice and helpful. Was pretty average for what I paid for (20 euro a night).

Great location only a 5 min walk away from las ramblas, it's very basic but if your not planning on staying in then it's fine. There was a bar crawl organised by them which was really good and great way to meet people thank you we will be back next time!

Our hostel was fully booked when we tried to extend our stay so they recommend is here - I'm so glad. It's clean and reasonably price, most hostels in Barcelona will charge more on weekends so be wary when booking on sites like hostel world to make sure you get a good price. We have a 6 bed dorm -...

Ok, it's cheap (10 euros) and the reception ladies are nice but the rooms are very noisy because of the lift / elevator (going up and down all night long, plus the people who arrive in the middle of the night).

It's a 1 minute walk from Paral•el Metro Station and a 8 minute walk from La Rambla. The night is for around 10€ ($11) for the night. It includes a room card key which also opens the lockers in the dorms. The rooms are small but comfortable. Some beds have holes in the middle but they're really clean The sheets...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Feel the beat of Barcelona! Be Hostels Sound is an awesome hostel right in the heart of the Barcelona city center. Our hostel is a reformed typical Barcelona apartment building- 6 floors tall with an amazing roof terrace, balconies on every floor, and great views of the bohemian Raval neighbourhood from every window. It’s the perfect place to watch the Barcelona life pass by. Close to all the best nightclubs and alternative spots in the city center, Be Hostels Sound is the perfect place to "come home to" at the end of your Barcelona day. Decorated and painted by local graphic artists, Be Hostels Sound is a modern hostel with a lot of personality. We offer our guests a big "chillout" room downstairs, a kitchen to save up money for the Barcelona sights and a big dining room with tables, lounge chairs and sofas to make your Barcelona stay as chill as possible. You are on vacation! Our rooms are mixed, with 6 or 8 beds and shared bathroom one every floor. All rooms have a personal locker for each traveller, A/C, heating, mirrors…. All rooms at Be Hostels Sound have big windows with great Raval and Barcelona neighbourhood views. If your room is on the street side, you also have a balcony!! The most important thing for us is that our travellers get a taste of what Barcelona is and what it represents for the people who live here. From Las Ramblas, to buildings with no straight lines, Barcelona is a very special city. Home to three of the most well-known Surrealist painters, Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso, and Joan Miró, even the most famous art of Barcelona is grounded in a reality alternative to the one that the rest of us know. Open yours eyes and ears and feel the Barcelona vibe! Catch your dreams with us at Be Hostels Sound. ... more   less
