The Hostal was very close to the Ramblas but in a fairly quiet side street so noise at night was not a problem. The whole place was incredibly clean and the beds comfortable. The owners were friendly and helpful. The only downside was that there didn't seem to be hot water in our room but having said that it was such a small problem we didn't mention it to the owners.I would certainly stay there again.

We looked and looked for a place and found hostal river .....it was perfect! Small room impeccably clean , clean towels every day and so near the Rambla...friendly owners always smiling. Will definitely go back when in Barcelona again. Great value for the price too!

60€ for a double bed, right next top Las Ramblas, friendly staff. No breakfast, room service available (cleaned up). Open 24h
Drawback: walls thin as hell, if ppl around are loud, get Oropax...

Stayed at this hostal for 3 nights mainly bcoz this was the best place available to my local contact's office. But to my surprise it turned out to be best possible location for me as as it is a stone's throw away from Ramblas also the street on which it is located is full of shops belonging to Indians (panjus & gujjus) which was gr8 for me as I am a panju from gujarat. The lady owner of the place was v helpful & quit happy to be of help but the main problem is she speaks only spanish & understands v little english. The rooms were very neat & tidy & the bed was soft & cozy. The hotel was almost empty this time of the yr. so it was deathly silent in the hotel. The only problem is it does not have any food or beverage facility- you even have to get your own drinking water from the supermarket located opp. to the hostal. I experienced how hard the spanish people party on a friday night as I was awakened around 2.30am by loud singing & stomping & Taylor Swift loudly belting out,"We are never ever getting back together" in a flat on a upper floor. Maybe that was a cue for me - I checked out the next day.

Stayed: February 2013, travelled solo
