Hello, I stayed at ramcat this summer for 10 days and was really really impressed. I was very worried when i read some of the reviews on the internet, but the place turned out exceptionally good. the location is with no doubt perfect, you will find yourself at the center of the center of barcelona. Security was my first worry,...

Ramcat is a series of apartments in an extremely well located building. It is just off La Rambla in a secure building. It was extremely clean, and had good facilities - great kitchen, free internet, and hot shower. It was also about €20 pppn for a (very small) private double, which is good value. HOWEVER, be warned of the following:...

Having spent the previous night in a random hostel where I shared a room with 3 other people, this was definitely a step up. Although I booked a room with a single bed, I got moved to one with a double. The apartment was modern and clean, and the rooms were quiet and comfortable. Although it's been done on a...

Stayed at RamCat in a 5-bed room for three nights. I think the only problem is the check-in system, as the reception is open only frmo 12 to 21, otherwise you have to pay a very very high additional fee. We managed to check in through a friend of us who lives in Barcelona, so did not have not pay...

We chose this accomodation as we wanted a romantic city break, on a rather tight budget. We tended to use the apartment only for sleeping, showering and making dinner. luckily Barcelona has so much to do so we hardly stayed in. We were on the third floor, which consisted of three rooms (one big dorm and 3 smaller rooms) Though...

Great appartment. Very clean, friendly staff, super location (5 mins from placa de catalunya). The only thing that bugged us was the smell in the appartment. They put a scent in every room and we thought it was a discusting smell. So we took them out of the outlets :)

We went to Barcelona in December and got a room at the Ramcat for a song. Bearing this in mind, this hostel was excellent. The room was lovely, spacious, the decor was funky (and very RED!), the service was great, the shared toilet/communal area was clean and we had no problems regarding noise, too hot/cold etc. I've recommended this place...

they ask more money as what you previously on hostelsclub.com is asked for. you then get the choice: pay it or search another accomodation! if you go, take toilet paper with you. you have to share the bathroom with the toilet in it with too many people. you always have to wait. room, window en kitchen are very tiny. they...

My friends and I (a group of six) decided to try RamCat, despite many mixed reviews online. Travelling in a large group to Barcelona in August on a tight budget is never an easy task, but this place had a room big enough for us all and wasn't terribly expensive. We were worried it sounded too good to be true...

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.
