Wow. This place is absolutely phenomenal if you love cats, as do I. The owners are so kind and allow you to walk one of their many cats with their given cat harnesses. It sounds a little strange at first, but it's so fun. The cats are well trained, and sizes range from kitten to small dog. While you sleep,...

The location is pretty good, being close to a metro station and the centre of the tourist action. However, the rooms are rather spartan and the air con isn't great, very dry. Shower is okay, though it's annoying that its activated by a timer valve with a very short lifespan, probably about ten seconds per press. I get that it's...

I came here because it was very cheap, so I didn't expect much. I was still disappointed. It is a bit dirty, especially the bathrooms (which rarely have toilet paper), but that didn't shock me. Their websites says laundry, but there are no laundry machines. When I suggested they change their website to be more accurate, I felt the reception...

Stayed as part of a stag night, 12 of us. Everything was ok, half way down la ramblas and then down a street. Very close to bars clubs etc. very busy outside hostel at night, and inside. Noisy, but most hostels are especially on the weekend! Staff were friendly.

I have to say this is one of the worst hostels I have stayed in. The only positive thing i have to say is that the location is really good, a block away from La Rambla. I read the reviews before arriving and I thought I could handle it. I'm on night 5 of 7 and all I want to...

Great location, but left alot to be desired in other areas. Not very clean and the bathroom facilities were not very good. Wifi didn't work at all the entire time we were there which is very frustrating. Staff were pretty nice but that doesn't make up for the lack of services

The only advantage of the hostel is its good location, just near La Ramblas so convenient to travel around. But other things are just gross. WiFi available only in the ground floor but not in rooms. Rooms are clean, toilets are clean, but that's it.

Center Rambles is in an ideal location but everything else is terrible. Although Barcelona is known for its partying you would think come 4/5am people would be quiet but no. The entire night all you can hear is screaming, yelling, banging, clapping and singing. It is like the walls are made of paper. Don't expect any sleep here. The rooms...

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.
