The first time I stayed here I had an amazing room at the front which was quite cheap. The only problem was noise from the street which is a common complaint about Barcelona. The second time I had quite a basic tiny room which was fine for the price although there was still a bit of noise from an inner...

We stayed for a week in the room with bunk beds. Very small room, with basic furniture and a little window facing the inner courtyard. The room and the bathroom were clean and towels were changed almost everyday. Wifi was free and worked with surprisingly good speed. The staff we encountered on check-in did not speak english but we understood...

We had a room with 3 beds and it was very clean. The rooms are very suitable for travellers who don't seek any luxury. There was also a fridge and water heater in the room. The staff was friendly but they didn't speak english very well. The main door of the hotel was weird and it was difficult to open...

We got in and the person at the reception said there was a problem with our room. We ordered a 2 bed room with a bathroom but instead we got a queen sized bed with a bathroom. As much as it wasn't the best to sleep in the same bed, having your own private bathroom is very unusual for hostels...

The good thing about this place is price and location (that is amazing). Other than that place is dirty, smelly, the walls are moldy, in short everything is old and you just want to get out as soon as possible. If you can afford even little more money try to avoid this place.

The owner said we had to wait until 5 to check in although it was clearly posted in the lobby that check in was after 2pm. They were extremly rude and didn't seem to care what we thought. the sheets were filthy as well as the rest of the room, everything was dusty. The bathroom was extremely dirty as well....

Ideal location for tourists: 5 minutes walk from Catalunya Square and La Rambla. Guest house is a floor in an old building (one big apartment?). the staff rather helpful but generally you have to rely on yourself and your guidebook. We got the key to the room, to the door of the guest house and some kind of an ancient...

I'll start with the hotel's best feature which is the location! It is located very close to Catalunya square the most central spot in Barcelona, only minutes away from the bus and metro station, El Corte Ingles shopping mall and the Rambla. If the location wasn't as excellent as it was then i'd be really unhappy with our choice since...

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood 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.
