Our hostel was fully booked when we tried to extend our stay so they recommend is here - I'm so glad. It's clean and reasonably price, most hostels in Barcelona will charge more on weekends so be wary when booking on sites like hostel world to make sure you get a good price. We have a 6 bed dorm -...

Ok, it's cheap (10 euros) and the reception ladies are nice but the rooms are very noisy because of the lift / elevator (going up and down all night long, plus the people who arrive in the middle of the night). The shower... is in the toilets and only a curtain separates it from the rest of the bathroom, plus...

It's a 1 minute walk from Paral•el Metro Station and a 8 minute walk from La Rambla. The night is for around 10€ ($11) for the night. It includes a room card key which also opens the lockers in the dorms. The rooms are small but comfortable. Some beds have holes in the middle but they're really clean The sheets...

The location was excellent, it was within walking distance of Las Ramblas, and there are plenty of transport options from here as well, the metro stop Paral-lel, and the buses just across the road from the station (D20 to the beaches). The room and facilities were clean and tidy. The lovely young girl on reception was fantastically helpful, she got...

The 6 bed girls dorm is pretty small, so I was happy to share with only one other person. The shower (2nd floor) is even smaller, but besides the size, the facilities are good. Contrary to what it says here, there's no breakfast. The staff is friendly. I had booked a bed for a week, but the hostel closed for...

Awesome hostel! The staff and incredibly friendly, always keen to help you or even just have a casual chat. The rooftop terrace is a great spot to chill. Each night a guy sets up a little bar and makes Mojitos for 3 euro (as strong as you like might I add) and it becomes a great spot to meet other...

Hostel with very good location and nice room. Only thing that I did not like was that during my stay (20th April 2013) one of the employees went inside the room I was staying at and started screaming at some of the guests.

I Stayed 4 nights and every night was different. The staff is great, literally the best staff I have seen. I will stay here every time I come to Barcelona. It's located in a pretty cool part of town. Like a 30 min walk to the beach down la rambla. The walking tour is cool too. There is 3 mojitos...

Terrible hostel. There was zero air con in the room. The beds literally fold out from the walls, there was no space to move in the rooms. It was like the size of a hall way! No towels. There was one toliet and shower for the boys and one for the girls, there was about 22 people in each floor....

I had an amazing time, met some cool people, and saw beautiful places. I loved that it was in the center equidistant from everything. Everyone was friendly and kind. I would definitely go again.

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.
