I was there in March . All in all it was a good place. I was in a room for 6 people but we were only 2 in the room since it was low season. I didnt like the breakfast too much. It needs to be improved. I like the area where we have our food and the kitchen. They...

We arrived there late and check in desk were open and the staff very friendly. Rooms were bunk bed style but we fortunately had the room to ourselves (between 3pp). Location is great as you walk past some of Gaudi work before reaching LA ramblas. Would visit again

Stayed in a 6 bed dorm. There wasn't a lot of room but the bed was comfortable and clean. A shelf for the bed would have been very helpful. The lockers were large enough for a large backpack also. There was only one bathroom per floor but it was always clean and I rarely had to wait. The kitchen was...

Stayed here for 3 nights and wasn't impressed. Check in was slow and they charge you 7% if you use your card to pay. the location is great though, just a short walk to las ramblas. I was in a 6 bed dorm and it was very tight. The bathrooms were tiny with absolutely no security or privacy. The door...

Booked a 6 bed dorm, get there and they had overbooked, we booked 2 months in advance. Someone comes in our room after first night and tells us we have to move into another room, it's a tiny 6 bed dorm with a shared bathroom. And we were even given the wrong key cards.

Staying in a 6 bed dorm is always going to be a little squeezy but these rooms were extremely tiny with little space for your luggage. The sharing of one bathroom also took a little time to get used to but overall the beds were comfy, bathrooms kept constantly clean and the reception were always smiling and willing to help.

Be sound hostel was our second hostel in the area and was a much better choice than the first (be dream). It's very much central and in walking distance to a lot of great things minus the beach.. You have to bus it there or rent a bike.. Either is good but the bike more enjoyable for us as there...

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.
