    For the price, and for the duration of my stay, this was a no-brainer. I stayed at IYH for 2 nights, and it provided all that I needed, with really no frills: that was a base, in a good location, from which I could start...More

    The location was good and the staff was nice, but the rooms and bathrooms are not clean and there were bed bugs in the room. The Wi-Fi doesn't work very well. It would be a nice place to stay if it weren't for the bug...More

    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

    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
