I booked a private apartment for myself and my sister for a very reasonable rate for 3 nights. We arrived at Be Sound hostel and discovered the apartments were located on a different street a 5 minute walk away - no problem at all, very easy to find, and it's also closer to Las Ramblas. No receptionist at the apartment...

Nice staff, very helpful and with good sence of humor. Hostel is clean, facilities are in good condition. Lockers have perfect size so I could put my two bags there easy. Wifi the best works in reception and in kitchen/livingroom area, in rooms it's a little bit slow but it's probably because of distance frim the router.

Very friendly staff and it's easy to meet people. The rooms are a bit small but not bad; the lockers were a great feature. The location is super walkable. My pillowcase was a bit dirty but I didn't mind--other than that I have no complaints! Great value also. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Do not book this hostel. The rooms were tiny, dirty and outdated. I slept on top of my sheets because they creeped me out so much. The mattress was disgusting and stained. There was one shower and one toilet per floor per sex and they were gross and tiny. The shower didn't even close let alone lock. The Wifi only...

When I first looked this place up the pictures really made it seem good. When we got there it was the complete opposite. Let me just start off that the wifi did not work unless you were in the lobby. We had to go up and down the elevator/steps to contact people through out our whole stay. The room was...

I had booked Be Mar hostel. I arrived there late evening to a sign on a shutter saying this hostel was closed for refurbishment and to find my way a few hundred yards around dark streets to Be Sound! The hostel had been closed for weeks but were still taking bookings. Even though I'd had email contact with them two...

We enjoyed having two balconies in our room and the hostel is cheap and very central. The air conditioning in our room didn't work and our room got broken into from a local Spanish man. The rules for the hostel clearly state that you cannot enter without the specific card that opens the door. However this rule is NEVER in...

Great location, just down the road from La Ramblas, ok breakfast, but the lift was really noisy, kept waking me up. The walking tour was really good and enjoyable. There are lockers in the rooms for each person.

I have used a lot of hostels over the years and I think I've come accustomed to what most offer. Be Sound is no different and any of you who use hostels will find all the usual facilities. Staff were not the best I've come across, one man in particular had a bit of an attitude to him. Location is...

Beds were comfy, but walls were paper thin. Difficult to meet people and the kitchen didn't open until 11 so you couldn't really have breakfast. There was no breakfast provided. Staff was nice and helpful. Was pretty average for what I paid for (20 euro a night).

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.
