We rented the loft for me and my family this July. It was pretty spacious and has a big bed and a big sofa in the living room. The kitchen is well-equipped. The only thing is that the bathroom is a bit dirty and when you shower, the water doesn't really drain fast so the bathroom is also a wet... More

CONS: - Big letdown: the place is much older and dirtier than it looks in the pics. Stains everywhere and dirty kitchen/bathrooms, which were not cleaned often as it should happen when they're shared among many guests. - Reception/luggage storage only available from 10am to 6pm. We checked in late in the night as our flight was delayed and had... More

It's an upscale hostel, but not quite a bed and breakfast. Very clean and modern. I chose it because there are 5 of us in our family (3 late teen's and early 20's kids joining us), and it was astronomical to get 2 hotel rooms in the city. Found this place and it fit the bill perfectly. I booked the... More

Definitely not quite a quaint B n B as described. Clean hostel with simple rooms. 2 very plain bathrooms to share between 5 Rooms. Small dining/kitchen area. Breakfast is down the street, but was awesome! Affordable and easy to get around Barcelona however. Only giving 3 stars due to description definitely didn't fit the place- and wifi was down for...

Perfect location – nice and vivid neighborhood, near a metro station, near the aero bus station, around 20 minutes walking to the city center, food market on the next corner.

The official description is out of date. The decor is tired & desperately in need of some TLC. We stayed in the attic rooms which had a nice roof top terrace, this was its saving grace as we spent time enjoying the weather &view. The bedding was clean but the rooms were dusty, the floors, kitchen & bathroom were filthy.... More

We rented the 1 bedroom loft that had a spacious living and kitchen area. The living area was finely decorated with encyclopedias from floor to ceiling, which of course just made me want to stay in!

Bird House is an innovative idea for having a rest while discovering Barcelona or just spending a night there while waiting for next flight.

Excellent location for the airport (A2 bus stops 50 yards away) and metro into the main downtown and beach locations. Clean and tidy with well-appointed kitchen. Only slight gripes were some noisy neighbours and not a substantial breakfast...but still good at the price.

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.
