how is this neighborhood?

I'm planning to stay at HostelOne Sants which is near Badal metro station and intersection of Carrer de Sants and Carrer de Badal.

How is this neighborhood? By day? by night? for a solo female?

Hi,

Its a little way from the centre but well served by the metro. It is close to Sants railway station so very handy for the airport. It is a safe area by day and night

As Doff says, it is safe; this is an area that ordinary people and families live in, rather than a tourist area. You will find it an easy location to get to the main areas of interest, but not really walkable to them. There are plenty of regular stores and restaurants in the area, but not places that would be described as special. The exception is the stadium, Nou Camp, which is close to this place.

Is the Sants railway station region also safe?
