I was pretty loud. Through the floor I could hear the people in the community room. I liked that there were curtains to shut your bunk. Seemed old and dirty though, some things were dusty. Pillows were weird and uncomfortable.

The bed was not the cleanest and front desk persons not very helpful. NO BLANKET IN WINTER?! I had brought my own sheets as to avoid the stated 2 euro linen charge only to discover that the charge was actually for the blanket. I was quite appalled that any establishment would be so bold as to charge for blankets in...

I had originally chosen Equity Point Gothic for it's location and less touristy feel. Although it did meet my expectations as far as location goes, it didn't offer much else. Many people have complained about the breakfast options (or lack thereof), but I really didn't mind, as there are many good, affordable cafes nearby. The general hangout area was uncomfortable....

I was sleeping and trying to rest when the lady who cleans came and opened the curtain and turned on the lights and asked me to leave. She said I payed only for one night and clearly on my key said 2 nights. I had to go downstairs to find nobody at the reception. I was still asleep but then...

The room was disgusting, it smelled so bad and had bathrooms inside so it made the smell even worse. The atmosphere was not good, some of the guests were smoking weed all the time and some were just creepy. I would never stay here again.

The hostel is at a good location. However, the room was small for 16 people and the window was closed all the time. They charge extra (2€ per night) for blanket which is too thin and it was really cold at night. I would suggest that you take your own blanket if you can. Also, toilets and bathroom were small...

The place was great, really close to where you'd like to go out, right beside a Metro stop. I'm just marking it down one star because the floor boards were incredibly creaky and that can be a nuisance when people in the dorm have different sleeping times.

I stayed there for 4 nights. It was first time when being in 18people room I had so much privacy and space. Localization is very good, in the centre but not where crowds are. And the underground is like 50 meters away. I felt like it is not a party hostel, but maybe it is different during the season. I...

This place was very cheap and right in the middle of gothic Q where there's tons of stuff to do within walking distance. I didn't have to ride public transit once. The 14bed dorm is alright, you get privacy with dividers and curtains, but it smelled pretty weird. The staff were all chill and helpful

Location is definitely the highest asset of this place. Service is OK, Rooms are OK, quite spacious and offer a bit more privacy than usual with ability to hide behind the curtain. Common bathrooms are OK. There is a bit of common space, but nothing unusual. Obviously you pay for every possible feature you may need. Good value for price...

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
