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

It is very well located, the staff is very helpful and kind. The room have basic comforts, but it is very clean and worths the money paid. If you are a budget travelers it would be the right place. Besides you are near the metro stations

Good price for great location. A room we lived at was small, but clean and cosy. Service was very friendly and helpful. Only at night is quite loud because of the city center, but earplugs helped me falling asleep. I could come back for 2-3 nights again.

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.
