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.

The staff were absolutely lovely and we came back to a spotless room every day. The location is fantastic, however it was quite noisy (especially during the night) but can't fault it for the price. Would definitely stay again!

Hay posibilidad económica de aparcar por la zona?

"be ready for the stairs!"
"This is at 2 minutes from La Rambla"
"Economic double room"
"Just because so many people stay in and out of Hostels from all walks of life. Since the restrooms are shared I recommend bringing a pair of inexpensive shower flip flops. And I'm from Texas so I get cold easily, depending on the weather I'd also recommend bringing a light blanket."

$56 - $103 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
