Can't fault it! It is no frills but clean and tidy. My room was cleaned each day with a fresh towel provided. Nice shared lounge with microwave (note to owners, a kettle would be really nice addition) no fault of the hostel but so noisy at night due to location, bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.

Great location just off Las Ramblas and near Liceu metro stop. Very simple rooms with tiny balcony, clean, ok bed. Nothing wrong but nothing great. Just seemed to be a corridor with Rooms off, one toilet and one shared bathroom with a toilet. Staff were nice.

The hostal is just off La Rambla, behind one of the big theatres. Our room was cleaned daily and we were given fresh towels and soaps too. It's a really comfortable welcoming environment and we really enjoyed our stay.

Perfectly situated in Barcelona, close to La Rambla. Quite a walk to the beautiful beach but still okay. Friendly staff and prices! We had a room with a little balkony facing the street. Was very nice!

Stayed her for 2 nights. We stayed in the 2 bed room (1 double and 1 single) with own bathroom: The room is quite basic but comfy bed and good value for money. The staff were very nice and friendly and most spoke good English. The only downsides are that the room walls are quite thin so often heard people... More

We arrived a day earlier than I had booked at the hotel across the street.- who were full. The old man at reception at the River was able to help us when we need it. My 2 sons and I got a room - clean and functional - no breakfast - and a toilet/shower down the hall. Nice 'Juliette' balcony... 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.
