Tiny single room, short on natural light (window faces a wall) with small LCD TV. The room had a bad smell of sprays(!?) Modern bathroom with good shower. Breakfast is simple but way better than what I was expecting from the reviews (actually above average for my standards for this price range). Really small breakfast room (and you need to... More

Clean hostel, nice staff and spacious enough. I liked the room furniture in particular. We have been good and it is very close to the centre. However it tends to be noisy outside during the night and situated in a multicultural area, although we had no problems about it.

Let's be clear, this a hostal, not a hotel and a horrible one at that. We were attracted by the grossly misleading photos, and advertising that makes it appear light and trendy and welcoming. It's unprepossesing from the outside and that didn't change on the inside. There's only a lift for luggage, so you better enjoy stairs.We'd booked the top... More

Only stayed here for 1 night with my family. On arrival we had an issue which thanks to the man on reception (wish I had his name but due to the stressful situation forgot to take it) the matter was resolved to everyone's satisfaction... I can not thank him enough for that. The Hostel was basic, but seemed to be... More

The hotel was quite average, I really cant complaint for the price we paid. But the street the hotel is in is a completely different story. Looks safe enough but I personally wouldn't go out after dark by myself. All attractions are at close distance and there is a La Rambla tube line 10 min walk from the hotel. So... More

We stayed here mid August this Year 2012. We were well impressed with extremely helpful and polite reception staff- a real credit. Well done. The rooms were very clean. The breakfast acceptable and very good value for money.

Sadly as I am sure has already been mentioned, some booking websites advertise this as a Hotel, of which I am sure by now you have worked out it is not. We had also fallen into this trap, so were at first disappointed. Once you get over that initial shock and rate it as a hostal, you can see its... 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.
