Highly recommend. Stayed here the night before my cruise. Price was right, place was clean, air conditioning was cold and the free breakfest was great. 4 stars for the price, my room had a terrace large bathroom in room.

No curfew. 2/5 Location - amazing, right next to las Ramblas, ten minute walk to Columbus statue, thirty minutes to the beach, five minutes to plaza catalunya but still minimal noise in the room itself. 5/5...

I stayed here with me 2 teenage daughters and was very happy with the accommodations. Hostel is spotlessly clean and the staff very kind & helpful. Our 4-bed room (we paid for the extra bed so that we could have that particular room) overlooked La Ramblas and had a little balcony, which we enjoyed. At the end of the day... More

Staying in La Rambla

Neighborhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
